I've read some reviews on them but don't have any personal experience with that company....
But what I did read sounded pretty good!

Looks good and seems machined nicely. Don't know anything specific about them though. If too expensive, lots of lowers from IL, ArmaLite and RRA for starters.

The owners (Bill & Al) of Ratworx are personal friends of mine.

You will not find better gentlemen to deal with in the firearms trade...period.

Don't quote me, but I think Sonju Industries manufactures their lowers.
They are great quality lowers.

Here is a page with the latest AR related news from them.

It wasnt terrible expensive $135 . I did call to see if I could get a break on 10 of them and they offered me free shipping on them , which was better than a swift kick in the balls I guess . I was just looking for a different lower than you dont see a whole lot of that I think has a unique roll mark . I think Im going to go ahead and pick on up and sit on it for a while . They seemed like pretty straight up people but they really werent interested in telling me who was machining their lowers, I cant say I blame them. I just wanted to make sure it was from a quality manufacturer thats all.

Not saying it effects quality of the lower but the rollmark is not all that unique...actually it borders on a trademark infringement on Springfield Armory's centuries old logo...just sayin.
