Just bought a dpms oracle .223. Now I just need a lower to go with it
so you bought a complete upper. now buying the lower.. generally people build it the other way but thats fine. lol
Well we found the upper and it was a good price so we couldn't turn it down
Palmetto State Armory makes a good lower. So does Spikes Tactical, and S&W. (I am talking about stripped lowers, but their complete lowers are probably good too. Look into some reviews for them).
Thanks I'm looking for the best so I don't have any problems
If you are looking for the best,
I highly suggest AXTS
Seekins Precision makes a nice one too.
My personal favorite is a Magpul lower, if you can find it.
Maybe consider getting a Colt 901 so you can use that upper on a 7.62x51 based convertible lower.........That'd probably be the ultimate lower.
I was looking on joe bob outfitters and the have good price polymer. But I what do you all think about have a polymer lower for a 223
These days, if you want to hurry up and shoot, go for the plastic lower. Spend some time shopping, learning, saving...and shooting...until you find the lower package (metal) that works for you. Personally, I don't like plastic (aka polymer) lowers. I dislike the idea of having a nice upper and no way to make it go bang even more!!!! Demand for AR goodies is crazy right now, supplies are normal+ ( going or gone) and demand++++++++ is off the charts. Thus, shortages and higher prices. Congrats on your upper. Ride out the wave.
IMHO, take a look at this:
If you are going to buy a lower I personally wouldn't go with a polymer one. Are they OK sure, but if youa re going to buy why not get a decent one Not some idiot magnet $430 lower like posted above. There is ZERO reason for a lower to cost that much as all it does is hold the buffer and the trigger.
Spikes has plenty of stripped lowers for $115.
Shoot here is a stripped lower for $99. http://www.rguns.net/rifles/rifles-semiauto-ar15-lowers-556rguns-stripped.shtml
If you can get a group together to buy in a batch sometimes you can get them as low as $75 or $80.
I ordered 15 one time from my guy and he got them to me for $70 each with just 1 $50 transfer fee. My guy ROCKS and I don't tell anyone who he is.
lucky lucky dog you!
Don't forget some good night optics too.
What sights do you recommend? I know a lot of people like EOTECHS and some people like the traditional sights but shorter. I do like the tactical look though.
