Anybody have a list of who gets their lowers from what manufacturers? I keep reading that brand X is the same as brand Y, just stamped with a different logo. This is my first AR build so I am just trying to figure out what I can do to save a few bucks.
Continental Machine Tool
Rock River Arms
Mega Machine Shop
Sun Devil forged billet receivers
The above list contains the machine companies that machine the raw forgings into usable receivers. Each individual company applies their own finishing standards. "
If you want to save $$$$$$, buy the lower and upper separate. There's a manufactoring tax you have to pay when buying a complete rifle. They apply to everything from washing machines to DVD players but you save bout 100 bucks if you buy the two separately check on that seriously
