EA no longer exists. I have one here now. The finish is rough, it makes a funny noise when you brush it, and it looks rough. Looks like it will work though. Want to buy mine? SEBR forces sale.

I have 2 of those receivers I bought when they were still in business. They seem to be within spec pretty good because all parts and uppers fit and function just right. I have used them constantly with no probs. I think they are cast by the look of them.

Investment cast.... Rumor has it Rugar did the work for them... DPMS bought them out....

Ruger did some of the investment castins, others were done by... well others. The Ruger ones have all marking lining up nicely... the other maker had the lettering kind of haphazard... Between my roommate and I we have three EA preban ARs... I think they work just fine and can be had for less than a name brand. As far as the casting... well, I stumbled upon these at great prices... if I had a choice and all things being equal I would pick a forged lower. But I have no fears with these.

I saw a guy selling a an EA carbine for 750 bucks one time. it had a collapsible stock and everything but it was in rough shape. the lower seemed to have chips in some places and they didn't look like the AR lowers I was used to, so I passed on it. it looked real cheap. I don't know if this is the norm, but I didn't like the looks of them.

My EA lowers are gorgeous, especially the one that was refinished by Lauer...
