Default Franklin Armory?

I am looking to buy a lower and the LGS has mentioned Franklin Armory. I like that they are located here in CA, but I have not seen them mentioned anywhere. Does anyone out there have any opinions on Franklin Armory?

Never heard of them but later some CA members may chime in.

Forged aluminum, 7075-T6? If so it's probably all right. Got specs or links?

Anyone else notice how many lower manufactures are coming out of the woodwork?

Life is good in the firearms world!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

BTW, with a handle of Vikingdad, you might want to look at the Valkyrie Arms lower out of Milpitas, CA!
