Default 80% lowers

I have been wanting to build an ar from a 80% lower. Does anyone have recommendations on where to buy or have any reviews on 80% lowers?

Thanks

I ordered mine from
gun parts plus.com
You can pick couple different options.
Also they have the least expensive jig that I could find

I looked into them earlier, the website didn't seem that great, so I was a little sketched out. How well did your finished product turn out?

Look at American spirit arms 95% lower.

Came out great I chose the black anodized one.
And they answer the phones shipping took about 10 days though.

Is it any different than any other 80% or is the 95% thing a gimmick? I'm not extremely familiar with 80% lowers but it doesn't look any different than any otherone to me.

A 90 percent lower has a pocket drilled right in front of the threading of the butt stock already done for you.
It's really not that much of a difference

I was wondering that too. It looks like an 80%, doesn't really matter I guess. The price is about the same.

I'd stay away from buying an EP Armory poly from Ares right about now.

Other than that are you looking for forged or billet.
