Tell me what you think. Any suggestions or other comments would be appreciated. I will be buying the lower on friday, starting my first foray into AR-15 building.

It could be cheaper if you grab PSA's deal of STR lower kit for $150 shipped.
But hey.. congrats! And have fun shooting it.
I'm sure you will be having 2nd, 3rd builds soon.

Why did you choose Aero Precision? Is it the price?

I did mine over the weekend. I still have to clean the junk out of the chamber area before I can shoot it.

Hopefully this coming weekend.

I was also looking at a Doublestar or Spikes Lower. However, I heard that there isn't much of a difference when it comes to lowers, as long as it is produced my a well known company. So, yes the price of the Aero was a factor. However I am under budget so I could pay the extra money for a Spikes.

Thank you very much. I did not see that.

Do you think there will be a drop off in quality in the LPK from the Stag to the PSA?

I never used Stag but LPK is just bunch of springs, detents and pins. So you should be ok.

Sweeeeet, good luck with it.

PSA has the STR kit on special. You might want to get it for your future build :)
