Default Unique lower...?

Hey y'all...
Going to start my second build and I'll be starting with a stripped lower and going from there...
Instead of heading to a local LGS and picking something up, I was hoping to get some ideas.
Is there such thing a unique lower?
I want a 5.56/multi lower, but I want it to stand out from the rest.
I not sure if that sort of thing exists, but if it does, please send links or pics.

The idea is to get a milspec lower so you can rob parts from any other milspec AR you find. If it is unique you are stuck with that one company that will go out of business when the current market slows down.

A billet lower will have a unique look but will retain mil - spec for parts assembly and interchagability. A truly unique lower would be a one of a kind, custom build by a master gunsmith.

And who makes these (does anyone know)?

The first one is the Seekins Precision SP223 billet lower. The second is the AXTS ADAC billet lower. It is fully ambidextrous on the controls as is the SP223 I believe. I think the third one is the Hellbreaker lower from Sharp bros. not sure what the fourth is. I'd go for either the seekins or axts. Don't have any experience with either but heard they are both top tier billets. Hope that helps

I really like #1 and #2 but neither of them really tickle my pickle...
So please keep posting if you can.,
If not, I think I'll just go with a Noveske lower. That iron cross turns me on, and that's the upper I'll be going with..

I like the Franklin Armory billet lower. I've built with 2 of these. Flared mag well and a Q/D mount built into it. They come in OD green, black, and FDE
