Default Dti vs Dpms lowers

Is one better than the other? is there a difference? are they inferior to lets say a stag or s&w?

I have five lowers...two CMMG, M&P 15, R-Guns and a Rogio Arms...The only difference is the finish (The CMMG and the SW are great) and the nifty little logo on the Magwell. They all fit all of my uppers with no fitment problems.

I vote for the one who has the logo you like...just my .02

I have both and as JD says, with today’s technology one forged lower receiver is as good as another. And I agree 100% they both are good receivers.

If you lined up a handful of forged lowers today, without seeing the rollmark (brand), about the only difference you might see is in coloration. Do some research and you'll find that there are about 4 major manufacturers of receivers, and a handful of smaller operations.

LMT = Lewis Machine and Tool = LMT, Lauer(old), DS Arms, PWA, Eagle, Knights Armament, Barrett, Bushmaster
Lewis Machine & Tool Company :: www.lewismachine.net

CMT= Continental Machine and Tool = Stag, RRA, High Standard, Noveske (old), Century (current), Global Tactical, CLE, S&W, MGI (1st batch), Wilson Tactical, (some?) Colt, Ratworx
Continental Machine Tool Company, Inc.
Stag Arms - Worldwide Leader In AR Manufacturing (an individual corporation that was started by CMT)

LAR = some combination of the original owner's last initials = Grizzly, Bushmaster (L Prefix), Ameetech, (?)DPMS, CMMG, Double Star, Fulton, Spike's Tactical, Noveske (new)
larmanufacturing.com - Home
largrizzly.com - Home

MMS=Mega Machine Shop = Mega, Gunsmoke, Dalphon, POF (forged), Alexander Arms, Stinger, Spike's Tactical(old)
Mega Machine Shop :: Tumwater Washington (new)

Plus several more proprietary and smaller operations.

(borrowed from another site)

There are a few minor differences between the brands, but nothing major. Most will be cosmetic, with a few brands doing a bit more machining than others. There will also be brands that tend to fit better with matching uppers from the same brand than with others.

But for the most part, any of them will work well for building a complete SUR.

A big plus one on the two previous posts.

Those two receivers are probably much closer to being twins then they are of being polar opposites.

If I held them behind my back, switched them around and gave you a view of each, you probably couldn't tell which was which.

Find the one you like the price on best and go with that one. Both are fine for a build purpose.

Pretty good prices for good products. If you have the money, I would look into a piston driven upper. They are clean, cool and smooth.
I will tell you this though, when it comes to AR's one is never enough.
