Stripped or complete?

GlockMan 01-12-2013 01:25 PM

depends on brand. a lot of no name stuff popping up.

JMO.

PS - Good stuff was $200 before the price hike

Spikes Jolly Roger opinions? And CMMG LPK or RRA LPK?

wrighterjw10 01-12-2013 02:05 PM

locally, there is a brand called lanco, that has been recommended to me from a few people.

would probably look to just purchase a lower at this point, not a completed rifle. thanks for the info so far! i feel like if i can find a decent brand for the $300-350 range i'd do it

I refuse to buy any Spikes products anymore. They are 0-3 with me, two being quality control issues.

NOVAbimmer 01-12-2013 04:57 PM

Moot point, as the shop sold them all

NOVAbimmer 01-12-2013 04:59 PM

It's ok, though, as I got another new toy :)

Really? I have had zero issues with mine.

They have some cheap Frontier composite ones out there. I have no experience with them though. Check your local armslist.....some come up at a decent deal.

I'd pass on the poly lowers. It dont take to much pressure to snap one.

A lowers a lower... not to many out of spec lowers floating around today and even the cheapest of lowers will perform just as well as a more expensive model if its in spec.

However, I would avoid any of the "local brands" no clue how good they are and you have to think that the hand full of people who recomend them are probably buying them because there the dirt cheapest and they have no real experiance with the platform or the financial backing to shoot one until it fails. They may be the best thing out there...there probably not. I know of one local machine shop producing 10 rifles a week. Right now there 75+ rifles backordered and they are selling for $850 IIRC for a complete rifle. I've got a friend whos drinking there coolaid but I'm not going to waste any money preordering what's probably junk just yet.

I'd stick with a established brand RRA, Bushmaster, DPMS.... ect ect ect... There all gona be about the same when it comes to lowers.

You are looking at $400 or so all day for anything...spike, noveske, RRA, etc. No names probably for around $300. I got raped on two lowers, but we are too late in the game. If you see one for less, pounce immediately...they usually last hours, IF that.

tailo 01-12-2013 06:30 PM

Just keep looking for deals. I bought a cheapo AR for under 1k and traded it plus $300 cash for a LNIB colt 6920...

sfcjetjr 01-12-2013 06:52 PM

You get what you pay for in an AR. If your looking for cheap, get a slingshot and river rocks!

Pretty much what I was thinking. I don't mind paying the premium, but wanted to get some opinions

Yup. I bought a Noveske Gen1 lower for $399 and a Spike Punisher for $380. I also got in on a 5000 unit preorder (look at my "help with my AR thread") for $150 a pop, but no guarantee that they will actually make it in time.

Here you go....they just upgraded them to billet without raising the price....

Judging from their other models...they seem to be of pretty nice quality, but what do I know, I'm a noob.

These seem nice for $200 and are in stock....I might think about picking some up.
