You can get Essential Arms lowers for $82 without being part of a group buy and they don't have a stupid-ass looking dragon on them.

IF you don't want in on it thats fine, 78 is the absolute max you will pay for one, with the number of them on the order it will go down further. I don't know what the final price will be per lower. Thought THR would like a heads up.

I have a DS lower and it works great. The little dragon logo doesn't seem to impact the function of the thing, but it looks unobtrusive, and even attractive, on the rifle.

Sorry, I guess I am just more of a minimalist in that I would rather have nothing but letters and numbers on my weapons. I can do without the pictures of mythical creatures. To me, not having illustrations on my lower is worth the extra $4.

I believe there is some negative feedback about the seller on this forum. Might want to be careful.

On who? The guys who do the lower? Or the guy putting the buy together?

the guy putting it together. Cue7467. Some good feedback, but a lot of unhappy people.

Care to share? I'm not seeing a way he can screw up a group buy short of taking the money and running...

I am going in on it but there is going to be a big delay. This thing got bigger than he ever thought it would. I think they are up to 2000 or so lowers.

It certainly wouldn't be the first time someone has done that either...

Even if you get the product you pay for doesn't mean the experience was good. I've seen people running a group buy tell people that their products would ship in June and the majority of the people didn't see their stuff until January-March (and that even required LOTS of emails/phone calls/threats etc.

IMO if its only a few extra bucks to buy something outright, its better than having to wait for everyone in the GB to pay, wait for the whole order to be processed and shipped.

Just my $.02

for the few $ saved, I would just buy one or more outright rather than wait for a GB to get everything together. Right now, time is not your friend.

Even if the guy handling the money had a spotless record, I wouldn't expect to get those lowers anytime soon, if at all.

Already like 1200+ ordered, gonna take a while to crank those out, after filling distributor orders, then reg. cust. orders.

ya i was considering it, but that group buy outgrew its britches.
1,200+ ( still counting!) and double star has 0 till the end of the month from my understanding

i feel sorry for the guy running it. noble effort, but its coming back to bite him now i think
