I know you said no chainsaw but here's noveske lowers in stock. I imagine they would fetch a good price if built and resold. Would they fetch as much as a colt? No idea, depends on the buyer I suppose.

Good question. Like it's been said, you're paying for the name/roll mark.

From what you guys have posted, it looks like unless KAC sells stripped lowers at a reasonable cost, my best bet is to part out a 6920. Any other suggestions?

You never know what a buyer will want and what he'll pay but it's likely a Colt lower will draw interest. S&W, too. Heck, even Bushamster. Name brands, familiar names.

I do think it's smart to pay a bit more for a lower you like. You'll forget the extra $50 or so and smile each time you look at the rollmark. Whether that translates into a higher price if you sell the build, well that's a gamble. I'd expect an AR with a S&W lower would draw a higher price than Aero Precision, but it just depends on the buyer.

So true , no matter what roll mark is on it , its only worth what the buyer is willing to pay . Some more, some less.
I had to go down this road with my AK . I over paid but it was what I wanted

I build some to keep and some to sell. The rifles I built on Noveskes sold faster than anything else, and I more than made up the extra $50-100 initial investment. So for me, I like a Noveske lower in your situation. I've found them for $160 or so, but that can be closer to $200 after shipping, xfer, bgc, etc.

I've also built quite a bit on PSA. They're about $100 each and equal to Noveske in function. You're paying for the name, but sometimes there's value in doing so.

You experts are great! This is the info I'm looking for. I realize as far as function, most lowers are the same. I don't want to sell my build, but if I have too most buyers would just look at the roll mark. Most folks aren't as savy as us regarding the internals. Please keep the knowledge coming.
