" WILL NOT SHIP TO WASHINGTON DC, WASHINGTON, RHODE ISLAND, DELAWARE, NEW YORK, MASSACHUSETTS, CONNECTICUT, NEW JERSEY, HAWAII "


Well, seeing this has already been discussed, I wonder if they would ship to an FFL in Mass.

It’s a 5 pack. $50 each is a good deal.

5 pack of "blemished" forged lowers, that is cool.

But I think just to be different I would lean toward their Black Friday deal on billet lowers, buy three get one free, works out to $67.50 per.


I used one of their billet .308 lowers and it was GTG.

Attempted or order the 4 pack (buy three get one free) and they cannot charge my card. Confirmed card is 100% good, but they can't go to it. So F them. I liked the look of their 80% AR15 lower too. They also fail to mention (at least where I could see) which alloy the lower is made from. Are they 6061 or 7075? Not that it matters too much for the civilian market mind you.

What's the deal with "billet" lowers? Isn't forged better? Don't they take a billet, and then forge it? From what I remember about machining and industrial stuff, forging takes metal, and forms it; and makes it stronger while doing so. Why stop half-way?

Here is a good explanation of forged vs billet: FORGED VS. BILLET LOWER RECEIVERS

Cabelas/bass pro make money on people that come in for sales and grab the over priced crap on the way out

I went in to Cabelas Friday AM on my way home. Grabbed a carriage went to the gun section. Nothing. Zip. Up and down the isles. Just a lot of cheap China crap. Returned my empty carriage and left without spending a dime. I miss the old Cabelas.

Yeah, a millionth of an inch is probably marketing hype. More like +/- 0.01 mm which would be closer to 4 ten-thousandths of an inch, not quite a millionth.

micron maybe.

but still. Hate all this marketing hype.

.000001” is something I’d never spec on a drawing.
