any opinions on their lowers. Just contemplating things.

Haven't got one, myself, but I've heard all kinds of good about them.

The original ones had some issues, but all problems appear to have been rectified with the latest version of them.

A Cav lower is probably my next AR purchase.

In my opinion they are half decent, at best. Great company and group of guys. I just don't have a whole lot of faith in the lower. I have one of the first generation and haven't used it yet. I will probably wait until I find a .22 LR upper to use with that. I have heard of a few of the current generation lowers breaking in half.

I say if you already have a few aluminum lowers and want to build one for a novelty, go for it. I would personally not rely on one for my only AR.

If you do decide to get one though, I will say that I have not heard of one person ever having a problem getting a broken one repaired. Like I said, good company and group of guys. You don't have to worry about doing business with them.

The reason to get one is light weight. The reason to not get one is that you can never change the stock.

I think they look icky. That's right, I said 'icky'.

I ordered one from a dealer on the EE and picked it up from my dealer yesterday. I bought it with the intention of SBR'ing and putting a suppressed 45 acp upper on it. I tried four different uppers (RRA, CMT/STAG, LMT, and DPMS) on it last night and not one of them fit. The rear pin won't go in.

I have sent off an email the dealer I ordered it from, but I don't expect an answer until tomorrow.

I'm personally toying with the idea of getting one, along with a pencil barrel upper, for an uber-lightweight carbine...

Still haven't decided whether or not I want to go with a flat top, or an A1 style upper.

you reminded me about these... i was thinking about one quite a ways back...

after checking out the pricing and everything they are right about there with a normal lower combined with a stock... tempting tempting...
