Good company or not? I am new to the AR scene, so forgive my ignorance. A lower is a lower is a lower from what I understand. It is the upper assembly you need to send the money on, correct?

Looks like the lower is based on DPMS parts. For sure the stock, andLPK are DPMS.

Anywho, Tactical Machining. What good/bad things do u know? I can get a complete lower NIB for $205 + FFL.

Thoughts?

No need to by a no name lower. Look through these LMT complete lowers:

$330 gets you a top of the line lower. I bet you can do better pricewise also shopping around.

it ist nescessarily a no name lowe. DPMS makes good produtcs. I am just not 100% sure what the lower receiver is. (i would obviously find out before purchasing). The LMT stuff is good to, but I amtrying to be as economical as possible, an my upper assembly is going to be like $500 or so.

Anyone else?

Why pay that much, when for a little bit more searching you can find a "name brand" lower for a ton cheaper?

I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to say after building four rifles with their lowers Tactical Machining is far superior to any of the name brand stuff I have work with. I have not had any lower that fit tighter from the box.
