For those of you in SoCal, if your looking for lowers, , found a bunch at the Shootist in Murrieta. They got billet Franklin Armory and Adcor lowers in. Don't think they sell on the Internet.

The Franklins are billet and have oversized magwell and Q/D mounts on the receiver for $279, the Adcor is $399. Not sure why it's a standard plain stripped lower. The New Frontier polymer are $100, the Omni polymers are $69

Then they have complete lowers in the New Frontier for $279. I noticed the entire LPK is polymer too. Don't know that I would want a plastic trigger and hammer.

I built on one of these complete NFAs. To my surprise, the trigger actually felt really good.

I would consider building a "keeper" super-lightweight gun on an NFA. But I would neither pay north of $200 for the complete lower setup, nor would I put a ton of money into the rest of the gun. And I'd swap out the rickety stock for an MOE immediately.

A poly lower can work out pretty well for many shooters in my opinion. Just don't go trying to build a $1500 rifle around one, because that's bound to be a losing venture.

The point- whether you're buying Hi-Point or Nighthawk, Noveske or DPMS...almost everything has its place. Just do your homework and figure out how your needs, budget, and the products in question add up. And know what alternatives are available at similar prices.
