My S&W M&P-15 lower (and yours too) is forged. Nice lower but definitely not billet.

Thanks! Good to know, but like I said my wife gave it to me and said have fun! Not bad for a 90$ lower!

It's a great lower and a steal at $90. If I'd seen that sale at Impact I would have gotten another.

I agree, it's a nice lower and I'm sure we are all looking forward to seeing everything as it comes together.

Funds are a little short, will be a while and I won't settle for crap part just to shoot. Gives me time to stockpile a lot of ammo ! Gimme 3 months. I'm super excited to sot an AR. Still never shot one.

Quality is always worth the wait and funds are always short.

I get excited to shoot every time.

Ask Quentin to post some pictures of his ARs. They are very nice and of high quality. Check out his Daniel Defense, almost perfect.
