    I would like to know if anyone has any input on Franklin Armory. I am looking to buy a lower and this company is located near me here in CA but other than that I have no knowledge of them.

    It just does not seem right to use California an AR in the same sentence or paragraph for that matter.:rolleyes:

    Thanks for the link. I would be getting a lower for an AR build. The fact that Franklin Armory is located just 30 minutes away makes it enticing.

    No problem. I'm still really new to ARs, but it looks like they make a quality gun. That gun in the review is really odd though.

    I'm seeing a lot of those guns in the stores around here. While I personally wouldn't want one I understand the reasoning behind building them which is to skirt the law. Its the old "Improvise, adapt and overcome" tactics. I'm all for that, but I can't afford to indulge in it myself, especially for a gun that doesn't shoot very well.

    I am looking for a stripped lower with the LPK as I have pretty much all of the rest of the parts I need. http://www.franklinarmory.com/PRODUCTS_Stripped-Lower.html

    Another interesting and new product that Franklin Armory is making is this one (introduced at the 2012 SHOT Show) http://www.franklinarmory.com/PRODUCTS_CSW.html

    This CSW is another "IAO" (Improvise, adapt and overcome) product. I hope they are successful in their efforts.

    I am very happy with my Franklin Armory SBR, but not its lack of online info. There seems to be much excitement about the tangents FA takes on guns including the CSW and their pistols(?).

    I love the form factor of my Franklin. Its like a piece of art that shoots But since there is so little available online about their carbines, especially the M4-SBR-L, I posted some pics of the rifle in its own blog. Enjoy.

    Franklin Armory

    Jury is out for me. Plunked down big cash for a matched .308 set. Gathered all my parts and first issue we run into is the hole for the charging handle tabs is too small. Two different handles by diff. manufacturers and neither would fit. Going through their RMA process now. Parts ship to NV for evaluation.
