I have prototypes for some 80%s I'm going to release soon, just wanted to get some input on what features you all are looking for for an 80% lower
Here's what we have plans to make so far:

Looks good. I really like it! Just don't have the tools to finish machining one myself....

A good flare on the magwell, and some kind of texture to the front of the magwell. No sharp edges, I've seen to many that have been left razor sharp (Ares Arm)

Thanks! There are no machine shops near your location? They are pretty easy to mill out!

Yeah I've seen quite a few different ones, a lot of places don't deburr or tumble their parts, and we made the dimensions to the magwell based of the pmag, I noticed a lot of lower out there are tight when it comes to pmag and especially tapco

Here in SoCal there are a crap load of companies Making 80% lowers. Some are just epic fails and some are nice. I've seen them as low as $80 and as high as $275. My LGS caries 4 different brands. What price point are you at?

Easy:
Flared magwell
Tensioner screw (to remove upper and lower play)
Captured takedown spring
Cool rollmark
Integrated triggerguard
Using a screw instead of a roll pin for the bolt release lever



Not so ez
Ambi controls
Lightweight
Provisions to accept 308 type larger uppers or standard 223 type uppers
Ability to accept 7.62x39 or 7.62x51 mags.

Yeah I've seen the good and bad, and actually worked for a company that made the bad and it was a nightmare!

and for these we were going to price point them at 150$
