Default Careful...

This is just me, but I'm distrustful of anybody (or comapny..) that might be taking advantage of a panic... and that is all the last year has been!!
Especially at $300 for a mold only. You know you can get a complete poly lower for half that; http://www.classicfirearms.com/long-guns/omegae3reccomplete and a stripped alloy lower for less than $100; http://www.classicfirearms.com/long-guns/deltonarlowerstripped
...and while I admittedly don't know the ammo situation in your particular area.. We've had plenty of .223 and 5.56 (and shotgun galore) for the past 3 months at the local retailers.

I think it is a great idea.
Shows some though and motivation by some enterprising folks.

Cost may come down if there is volume or competition.

Anything like this is a plus in my book.

Now, I'll temper my enthusiasm until I can read some reviews.

If this results in safe usable and affordable (after a run of 3 or more) receivers I'll keep my thumb up.

Interesting idea. Keep us all posted about how it works if you try it.

I'm assuming you'll still need to drill pin holes and do a little finish work before it usable. Couldn't be any worse than the new frontier lowers were...

I'm not trying it. For $300 I'll pick up 3 spikes or another Noveske gen2 lower. I do like the idea because I live in NY and they're banning everything. From what I've read the mold has all the pin holes and everything in place. I was wondering if anyone had any reviews on it?

If I was wanting to stock up on rifles, I'd probably just buy aluminum lowers.

No FFL required?
That is true until you try to sell one.

For you own use, there is not FFL required. So how many are you going to make?
Blemished lowers can be had for $55 today, so to get the savings, you have to pour at least 5 (which you cannot sell without an FFL).

And because you are manufacturing, the Type 7 FFL license would be required.

If you live in ny then how are you going to get a hold of new lowers? I heard a while ago that the state didn't know how to classify a lower since it is possible now to build one up safe act compliant.. Lmk if you have new details

Not only is the mold and plastic expensive you can only use the silicone mold 3 times. If one knew enough about polymers to do their own quality control they wouldn't need the mold. They would just contact a tool and die maker to build a durable product.

Because the geniuses who drafted our wonderful new regulations aka the safe act, better known as the Unsafe act only attacked "evil" features like that devilish pistol grip. You can still get a stripped lower because it is by definition stripped- no pistol grip, no problem man. You can also still get unconverted saiga AK pattern rifles as long as its got the old school rifle stock. My advise? Buy what you can before the libturds figure out a way to ban any and all versions of semi autos. Your profile says bellmore, I was in south shore sportsman the other day they had stripped stag lowers for $165.

Now can someone explain to me why the top one is fine but the bottom is not? Both are 762x39 ... Cuomo can suck my ****
