    Anyone know if this is actually available as a product, or if it's a custom thing some guy made for himself?

    I dunno, but looking at the grip mounting tang, that appears to be a cast receiver. No thank you!

    Hmm. Even with you mentioning it I can't tell. Are mil spec receivers forged?

    The grip tang must be machined to final dimensions on a forging. There are no tool marks and what appears to be a casting line on that one. But it could be a billet lower that was tumbled in some kind of media to take out tool marks. Does actually look like a New Frontier Armory billet lower.

    Yes.

    Neat, thanks. Never really considered the 80% route.

    What the heck is with the screw holes at the top of the magwell?

    I was just thinking the same thing.

    Love the "snek" though, and the "pew pew pew". This is almost a good as the Honey Badger lower...

    My guess it is a way to semi-permanently attach the magazine. There is no magazine release either.

    Looks like an 80% Billet that someone finished out
