    Is this a fair price for an AR?

    Poly lowers are 110% unreliable, it is not a matter of if it will fail, but when. Every time you should, there should be an expectation that the lower will fail. Tack is right, a plastic lower with a lifetime warranty is pointless. At the moment of truth, you have no weapon but an RMA for a return. The weight savings over an Aluminum is so negligible, that I have never seen a need or a want for an AR plastic lower. Some people say "I just want to see if it works". Cool, I get that, however having a rifle come apart in your hands (or worse) sounds like not a fun time. I would take the offer and build a reliable AR15. You can get an Anderson Lower for $39.99, it will last literally forever.
  2. Still for sale. This is a steal.
  3. Price drop $65.00
  4. I have a standard black lower I want to get coated to color match a Nodak-based Brownells XM177E2 upper. Help me out!
  5. I am building a retro, I need a standard trigger guard and roll pin. Anyone have a spare?
