I guess they are not discontinued. DPMS still offers SS lowers. Shoulda checked before shooting off my mouth, err, fingers.

The lower receiver takes almost no pressure, so a more durable but heavier metal is pointless.
I've fired a milled steel AK47 and found them to be light and not that heavy at all. another example is if you guys are familar with the VZ 58 that's a milled Czech assault rifle that weighs only 6 pounds.
