Default Lower Help

Guys, I have decided to start my build and I was planning on purchasing RRA lower however finding a RRA lower available is almost impossible! So, after searching online for what is available, I have narrowed some lowers down: Spike, Noveske, or S&W? Which would you recommend? Other suggestions are welcomed but please post a link to the seller/website. Thanks guys for the help!

I'd choose if i were you:
Low budget: Spike's
High budget: Noveske

I have both and both are awesome!

You didn't look too hard...lol sorry I have one in the classifieds but it's pending sale right now. If you want an RRA I know someone who has them in stock. PM if interested.

Any of those three would be fine. I also like the S&W. Noveske will come at a premium price but does draw attention.

Thanks guys for your suggestions, I am just amazed at how difficult it is to find a lower. I assume it has to do with all the negative media and previous election outcome.

I ordered (as a dealer) the RRA lower for another member of the forum in Aug and was able to pick it up in Dec. So needless to say there is a slight backlog. I just placed another order and won't expect it until May.
