You can get "Eagle Arms" (Armalite) forged lowers for $100 from http://www.quanticoarms.com/
www.sableco.net offers Rock River Arms stripped lowers for $95
And if you want something "cool" stamped on your lower, there's always the RRA "US Property" marked forged lowers from Legal Transfers.(Pete in NH FFL/Dealer
Legal Transfers 603-770-2281
PO BOX 172
PLAISTOW NH 03865)
Your "friend" is probably trying to sell this lower because he spent $295 for it and realized it wasn't worth the extra $195 it cost him, so he's trying to recoup some losses...
I've never had any of the problems out of my Bushmaster that this high priced lower "solves" , nor have I heard of any from friends Bushys or RRA's.

Thanks for the info folks. I sort of figured it was mostly "Gee-Whiz" factor but I do know a bit about machine work so the CNC and billet factors caught my eye. I had no idea as what the stresses would on an AR lower and if it was worth the extra $$$ for all of that WOW factor. Guess I'll pass.
