    They should be good to go. Surplus ammo and arms lowers are made by Aero precision, same company that makes Spike's Tactical and some others. Don't have experience with Surplus personally but I do with Spike's.

    I ordered mine painted. But I am sure someone on here could tell you what type of paint to use. I believe the paint used for model airplanes and such.

    I actually had my local gunshop buy it and I bought it from them, I think it was $130 to $135 out the door. This was last spring.

    The best I have ever done was two stripped PSA lowers for $49.95 each + $9.95 shipping +$25.00 transfer fee. Two lowers for about $135.

    I have one of their lowers. No complaints. Works just fine. I would recommend it.

    Sorry about the crappy pictures but cell phone camera is all I got. SA&A lower. I only have 200 rounds through the rifle, but there have been no problems yet. Spike's upper mates perfectly with it.

    Someone on the Oly forum said the SA&A lower were Aero precision and good to go. Mine will become a pistol build soon.
