Default Thoughts on lower

Never heard of this company and couldn't find any reviews. They surely like the phrase "mil spec" though. Thoughts?

Well going through the few pics they have of their lowers, they look decent.
I'm a bit leary about the fact that I've never heard of them and there are no reviews.
Also the webpage was setup in 2013.

That's what I was thinking. Also, they never say exactly what material was used. Great price, though.

It's a safe assumption they're aluminum.
The question is how well they are manufactured (in spec?) And whether you'll actually ever receive it.
The price is also a bit scary with the fact Most places are charging alot more now.

Spend a few more $ and buy a lower with a known name. I can't say those might, or might not be good enough to work, by why risk it not being good enough ?
