SAFE/SEMI/AUTO ?

I thought Noveske might but they don't. They say they will, but have no idea when.

Tom Sawyer Manufacturing will sell a total custom lower for $300, but I'm not sure I want all that...

ETA: I f*cked up and put "FIRE" when I meant "AUTO"

Check with Superior Arms.

thanks, but that's gonna be a HUGE negative on SA lowers.



That's judging by this lower. I'm gay about lettering and I'm not interested in one with 3 different styles of fonts- two of them being really shitty looking.

Anyone else?

pof usa makes em, as well as tom sawyer manufacturing to name two off the top of my head
Link Posted: 3/7/2006 3:06:58 PM EDT
thanks, but I mentioned Tom Sawyer as a no-go at this point due to price and POF makes the pictogram lowers.

I wouldn't mind a non-colored pictogram lower though...

Dennys GTS lowers are marked Safe/Semi.

Thumbs down!

SAFE/SEMI/FIRE? Isn't that a little redundant? Do you mean SAFE/SEMI/AUTO?
Link Posted: 3/7/2006 5:15:14 PM EDT
Well here is mine.

yours looks nice.

I f*cked up and put "FIRE" when I meant "AUTO"

NO problem it made it sound like you wanted a custom lower.
Link Posted: 3/7/2006 7:04:29 PM EDT
what about getting a GTS lower as mentioned above marked SAFE/SEMI and having AUTO added to it


btw +1 for Denny
Link Posted: 3/7/2006 7:12:20 PM EDT
Ah, Denny's are marked SAFE and SEMI ? I take it so you can add AUTO later if you want?

Even though I kick ass with the Duracoat, I don't want to have to do any refinishing at all including filling in any new engraving.

I wish Grenadier Precision would get their asses moving and get their lowers finalized...
Link Posted: 3/8/2006 3:31:06 AM EDT
Link Posted: 3/10/2006 8:21:12 PM EDT
I don't understand how it wouldn't involve refinishing the letters back to black? Maybe this would be the way to go as I will also be needing SBR info engraving...

Joseph

You can buy one of my lowers and send it to Tom Sawyer and for around $40 he will add the AUTO marking. There is no refinishing involved for you Steve does it.

He has done some for me and they look great,

Denny



They do the refinishing for you at Tom Sawyer

I dont know about anyone else but I really like the way HK does their FCG setup as far as markings go

Anyone do that?

Me, too and Tom Sawyer Manufacturing is also the choice.

Notice a pattern here?

POF USA does it.

Ok, I really didn't explain myself well enough it seems...

I did state I didn't want pictograms really and definitely didn't want colored pictograms. I'd rather have H&K pictograms than the POF pseudo-H&K pictograms with the "flared" open box on auto.

So does Tom Sawyer refinish the entire lower?

I can re-duracoat the lower myself. I was hoping to have none of the anodization removed.

That POF lower appears to have a fairly thick Molyresin coating or Duracoat- one of the two. It's definitely not smooth and factory looking FWIW.

I think I will be building a Mk18 Clone:
