Fac has cav arms stripped lowers for sale for 119-129. This seems to be a good price compared to others who are selling them so i was thinking of picking one up. On some of the other dealer pages they had statements saying this type of lower could only be assembled by a gunsmith. Is this true or could i assemble it at home just like a normal lower?

C'mon now, buy that puppy and build a shooter.

Nothing to it. Only difference between it and a reg lower is that the Cav uses a cross pin to hold the buffer tube pin in and a pin inserted in the top of the receiver for the rear take down pin. Directions come with it and/or the people from CAV ARms will walk you through it.

Some springs have to be trimmed. Just follow the instructions carefully and it's a piece of cake (or should I say polymer).

Newbie question: [:I] What is FAC? I looke in the industry section and didn't see anything that it would seem to stand for. I assume it's somewhere that sells AR stuff..... HELP! I want one of those Cavalry Arms lowers! Thanks

I have assembled a few (about 5 Cav Arms lowers). And I'm not a gunsmith. The last few, all I used is my Leatherman Wave and Crunch tool. Read the instructions. The pivot and take down detent springs have to be trimmed (one does for sure). The safety spring has to be trimmed also. The way to find out if it has enough removed is this way (my method). Trim a bit. Put it in and put the detent in. Take a small screw driver and push the detend until it is flush. The if it is difficult to push down, take another coil off of the spring. When it is easy to push, and still pops up, it's good to go. Remember, if it's too strong, operating the safty will be difficult. Been there...done that.
