Default just bought lower parts kit!

Well after months of think about how much i want an ar i finally decided to take my first step towards building one. i purchased a CMMG lower parts kit for 80$ total. Next step is to buy a lower! What do you guys think of this parts kit and what stripped lowers do you guys recommend for under 120$? I was looking at some aluminum lowers and the cav15 lowers.

I bought the same lower parts kit. I swapped out the grip and trigger guard for Magpul MOE Grip and Aluminum Enhanced trigger guard.

Check out this lower great price and a quality 7075 T6 Aluminum.

Hope you bought it from PSA otherwise you probably overpaid and its junk. Because we all know by now PSA is the greatest thing since boloney on wheat with mayo and mustard.

Nope, I need to buy one. Im kind of pissed, the store I bought this kit from had a cav 15 lower for 125$ out the door. I didn't have that much on plus I live in California with my dad.
Has anyone had experience with the ATI omni polymer lower?

Save a little longer and get an aluminum lower. Don't be in a big hurry and buy crap. In the long run you'll be happier.
