Nothing wrong with Spikes, they have a great reputation. Plus, if you can score one from AIM surplus when they come back in stock, the price is right!

The only difference between the forging and the CNC Billet is that with the forging, the tolerances from the very first unit, to the 500 unit will vary.

Not a lot, but it can, has & will happen from time to time.

As this is not a .0001" tolerance weapon to begin with, there is no danger with a forged receiver as long as the company in question is doing it correctly.

There is nothing wrong with Spike's if you don't mind the spider on the side. I personally don't care for the look, but the unit will work just fine and do everything it is supposed to do for the price.

You're in CA, right mach? Keep in mind that .50 weapons are strictly verbotten! CA DOJ has no sense of humor

Biggest thing: Detachable magazine
If you have a detachable magazine, you may NOT have a flash hider, pistol grip, thumbhole stock, foregrip, bayonet lug etc.
According to the courts, if your rifle requires a "tool" to remove the magazine, it isn't "detachable", hence the bullet buttons and prince 50s and what have yous. IMHO, getting a bullet button is the way to go. Slows down mag exchanges, yeah, but at least you can have a halfway normal rifle configuration.
Also, some brands are verbotten. "off list lower" means a lower receiver not stamped with the name Colt, DPMS, Bushmaster, Armalite etc.
A CA FFL won't sell these to you, so that makes it a little easier to comply
Also, no mags capable of accepting more than 10rds, no barrels under 16" (NFA items illegal here, regardless of tax stamps), and so forth...

I am not a lawyer, I'm not even handsome enough to play one on TV. Consult the CA DOJ website if you have any doubts!

Also, I should mention that a stripped lower in CA is identical to a stripped lower anywhere else, you just hafta add crap you wouldn't have to add if you lived in the real USA
