I would look at a spikes tactical lower. You can get a stripped one for just under a hundred bucks and a parts kit for about 60-80 bucks. Then you just gotta pick the buffer kit and stock

I chose and ordered Spikes Tactical complete lower 2 weeks ago. Specially the Spider logo.. looks so awesome! Paid and they debited my money already. Im excited and looking forward to it. It will marry it to Daniel SBR which i ordered it too. Only God knows when these lower & upper will be shipped. Lol

I went with this lower:



Mega Machine billet. ^



I went with the RRA single stage LPK w/Ergo grip.









Assembly of the lower is a cake walk. We can help you build your own.

So it would cheaper to build my own lower? And I like the spikes lower.. I'm just afraid of screwing up my lower... And I already have a mil-spec moe stock od green in color and a zombie defense grip... Just need buffer tube and springs and trigger group

Okay I think I made my choice on the lower... Spikes tactical zombie lower with the standard parts kit and let them install it costs around 180 not including the buffer tube yet
