He's got some PSA lowers for 70. Stripped lowers. How do they comparing? I'm familiar with PSA. Have one of their uppers. Just wondering if there was much of a difference in quality.

Both are fine. I've seen each for like $50 at PSA recently, but that's no better than $75 when you factor in shipping and transfer.

If you like the roll mark, either is a square deal.

I was gonna go spikes, then mega, then Noveske but I came back to earth and now will probably just get the PSA unless I can find a Spikes at a dealer.

Absolutely grab it, if you want to build. They apply a proprietary treatment to all parts. It reduces friction to the point you never have to lube the rifle. It was the cleanest running AR I've had, because no oil was there to pick up the residue. I'd still have it if I hadn't traded it for something special.

I read on their website that the parts sold individually were not treated. It's only treated if you buy the whole rifle.

I wouldn't put my life on it but that's the impression I got reading the fine print.

I spoke to them on the phone before buying my rifle, to verify what I had read. They are a small business in Hebron, KY. They seemed straightforward, no bull.

I recently built with one of their lowers. It was perfect, no issues.
