Tom Sawyer Mfg. I'm not sure if they made the whole receiver or just do the engraving. But ether way I don't think there in business any more.


If you need an inexpensive AR lower receiver try here

And I think it says on the peace sign "Peace Through Superior Firepower" it is a logo of life liberty, etc.com

Thanks for the info. Is there a difference in lowers? The aimsurplus price is a lot lower than the ones I've seen while shopping around..........markerdown

If you want a general purpose plinker some are better than others, but if you want a sniper or sharpshooter type then say with the higher priced lowers. What Iím saying is they all shoot, but the higher priced lowers have a little bit better fit & finish.
The ones aimsurplus sells are good; everyone that Iíve talked to that bought one has not had any trouble out of them.

A lower is a lower is a lower to quote my brother from the PNW. 7.62 shares the opinion (informed opinion that is) of most on here. As long as she is forged and not cast, and from a reputable manufacturer...it will be good to go. Couple of lessons learned though:

Finish "color" is not always the same. If you have an upper in mind, and you dont want an unintentional "two tone"...make sure they match.

Now there are LPKs and then there are LPKs (lower parts kits). Some appear they have been forged in Cane's garage, some are high quality. Use caution if building your own, good quality springs/ components are a must. An AR lower is essentially a spring wound bullet launcher wrapped in an aluminum housing that holds it all together. Good luck!

I just ordered the lower from Aimsurplus. I'm just gonna build a basic plinker for my first one, see how it turns out and go from there. :D .........markerdown
