Stripped lowers are like the first you posted. They are literally just the shell that begins a build.

A complete lower contains all the parts necessary to attach and upper receiver and open fire. It contains a lower parts kit, fire control group, grip, buffer tube, buffer, and spring. Cost goes up, but its ready to go basically.

Do you have a budget in mind?
Honestly, I don't. I thought about $1000-$1500 without optics. I know I will be paying a premium now. My main thought is since the lower is the "firearm", I wanted to get one ASAP before they ban them so I at least have it, and can build later on.
