I just ordered some PSA goodness a few minutes ago. I like the idea of cheap blemished lowers. I love internal (metal) perfection; scratches and superficial concerns I leave to those who worry about that kind of thing.

What is the deal with some stripped lowers having complete trigger guards and others do not? I assume that the ones without just cost less due to mfg? Is that an area of the lower thats prone to break with heavy use and as a result the mfgrs choose to leave it open? Just wondering.

Second, I am actively looking for a multi-cal lower to purchase ASAP. What are the top 3 or 4 lowers available that are reasonable in price? For example, is the PSA lower for $99 a good deal, or is it a good deal for a "average" lower? I am kicking myself for not getting a couple blemished PSA lowers when they were like $50.... The LGS I called today has a couple of lowers for .308 (mfg CMMG) but they were around $250 and up in price...

Thanks guys!
The PSA blems are still only $69, and from the reviews I read most can't find anything wrong. They had them on Friday night, but were out of stock by Saturday when I went to order.

It was $59 till the election day. Yes true, i can't find any blemished marks till now. I think they purposedly sell as blemished price. And yet PSA also sell them with full price for desperate ones. Nice marketing! Just saying..

An extra $10 to keep out off the hands of a bureaucrat and show demand? I'm in!
