We have a shop here in Kali that sells Vulcan recievers, lowers, rifles with a 10 rd mag "permanently" installed and legal. Has anyone heard of these? They want $259 for the reciever and $415 for a complete lower. Is that a good price? Also, where else can I find these to compare?

Thanks, tom

Stay far away from anything that Vulcan makes. Your best bet is a FAB-10 lower which is Cali legal and far better quality. Check this link for dealers:

That's disgusting. So are Vulcan/Hesses. Guns of the Special Forces indeed...

If the budget won't stretch beyond a Vulcan.....try getting a used gun.

Plus those prices sound a bit high, but then again you ARE in Cali, so who knows, maybe out there that's a good price...

Friends don't let friends buy Hesse, OH THAT's RIGHT I MEAN VULCAN....

I have two builds on Vulcan lowers and they work fine. Are the Vulcan lowers crap? I don't think so. The finish may not be as good as the others out there but my Lower parts kit went in with no problems and my RRA upper fits perfectly. Is the website cheesy? Yes, but I don't care about their website. I just want to build.
$259-$269 is the average you will pay in California for the lower/pinned mag. A bit of a ripoff but you gotta pay to play here in Cali. I will probably sell it when I move and get a higher quality lower but for now this will do just fine. The main complaints about the unit I have heard are the finish and the stock magazines. My finish was not bad and I swapped the magazine for a Bushmaster 10-rd with a little bit of work. Total for a build would be about $1000 (+/- 100) with a quality upper, stock, and LowerPartsKit. A prebuilt Bushmaster Carbon-15 or Vulcan is about the same price.

The Vulcan receiver is excellant , its the same subcontracted piece that every other company use's. However, the magazine they use is a serious POS!!! I cut mine out and replaced it with a Bushmaster, and the rig runs great !

Vulcan and/or Hesse products are pure unadulterated 100% SHIT. Charles the Gunsmith.

Or both of you could try to get a legal stripped lower and have a fully functional rifle in a month or so if things work out right...
