    Been wanting to build my 4th. And i want the lower to be special this time. I got Spike's Spider and Pirate for my AR pistols (Form 1s pending). So i want to have something else.
    I got 2 stripper lowers in mind which i wanted to get. Either the Noveske Gen2 Chainsaw $210 or the Quentin Defense US Army Billet $180. Both prices are shipped prices. This time build will be pricey but what the heck. Maybe this will be my last build. :)
    Is Billet receiver is better than Forged one? I kinda like the Quentin rollmark. Also not much people have the Quentin. We all know Noveske is more popular.
    Most probably i will get a BCM upper with Daniel Defense rail. As i don't have any BCM expect their BCG. And i will use DD LPK which i ordered from Aimsurplus yesterday.
    So help me decide guys.. thx.

    personally if I was building my forth AR to keep if I didn't have one already I would build a Pre-ban colt. I would make it all Vietnam era 20" barrel tri prong muzzle flash. tri hand guards and all originals bayonet, sling , etc.
    I've made one for someone and it was the funniest and most educational build I've ever done. just finding the stuff at gun shows and talking to old vets. It was really a satisfying build and one of my cleanest shooting ARs built to date.

    I would go with the Noveske. But thats only because I've always wanted one.

    Alright that's it. Finally made up my mind. No more shopping in 2012 :).
    Ordered 3 lowers. They are Noveske Gen2 Chainsaw, Quentin Defense US Army Billet & PSA Blemished.

    Nice...

    "I've made up my mind...I'll buy 3 lowers!" :D

    I like the way you think sir!

    I love the Noveske and Quentin Defense. Noveske will probably be my next build.

    Well i spend a whole day during work and at home thinking which one should i get. And after last night's Obama & Romney debate, i was thinking what would happen IF both of them going to ban AR? So told to myself what the heck, just get the lowers first.

    Yup- same reason I'll probably buy a Noveske lower sooner, than later.

    I also ordered the New Frontier Armory's new billet lower. NFA is my fav local and nearest FFL. It's $125 plus tax.

    I got 10 80% lowers about a year ago in a really good deal, and never got around to finishing them. If Obama gets re-elected, I probably will work on them.
