[quote="TigerStripe"][quote="M4arc"]Very nice rifle Lumpy!

TigerStripe, I'm building a similar M4 but I started with a preban SGW rcvr that I had remanutured and a 14.5" 1/7 chrome-lined DPMS upper. Here's what I have in it so far:

remanufactured lower $115


Remanufactured? What do they do to the lower?

TS

[quote="Stickman"]Olympic Arms will destroy the old one and make a new one with the same serial numbers. Pretty nice deal if you screwed up your old preban lower, or just had something happen to it.

[quote="TigerStripe"]I wonder if they'd make me a new one for my SP1 lower?

The original manufacturer can replace a damaged receiver (except for machineguns) with one bearing the same serial number, and if it was a pre-ban grandfathered "SAAW", it will still be pre-ban. Oly (formerly SGW) will do this as a matter of course, so you can now have a BRAND-NEW pre-ban lower receiver for a bit over $100. You could even get them to remake your preban lower in titanium. Colt doesn't like to do this, but has done it on some occasions. I believe Bushmaster and Eagle Arms (now Armalite) have also done this. DPMS will probably do it as well. I think all the other pre-ban manufacturers are out of business, so Essential Arms, PWA, Rock Island Arsenal, Frankford Arsenal, etc cannot be replaced/remanufactured like that any more.
