    Anybody have any experience with the brand?

    Very cool looking lowers. I want to build an AR-10 with one.

    Inspired by a P40 aircraft.

    Check em out if you have not already done so. For those of you who have, please tell me about them.

    That's pretty darn cool. I am surprised there aren't more things like it. $300 for the amount of time it costs to make it isn't too bad. I would like them to come out with some other designs. They could really carve out a niche for themselves. (I would dig a gargoyle looking one.)

    Definitely different looking but a bit up there in price for my budget.

    Pretty hideous to me. Even if they're cheaper than a standard lower I won't be getting one any time soon.

    Haha, charging $300 for a lower that should cost no more than any other lower to produce....... Yeah, I think I'll pass.

    It should cost more for the idea and machine time if billet. I still wouldn't pay it.

    Sharp looking lower with the teeth.

    To me 'AR-10' equates to 52MM case length (7.62/.308 or .243...). The lower referred to is not long enough for a 52MM case length. It/they are AR-15 lowers.

    With the absence of anything that has anything to do with a 'scary looking gun', maybe the steep pricing is one way to maintain stock.

    Still look neat :)

    Just a variation of the Seekins lower that's been around for some time now. I'd spend the money on ammo myself.

    Not my cup of tea. I'm sure guys on arfcom are color-filling as we speak...

    Not my thing either. Give me one that looked like the Statue of Liberty and then we're talking. Let freedom ring. :)

    That is really cool. Trying to decide if it's cooler than the Umbrella Corp lowers...

    As a Resident Evil fan, I'd love one of those Umbrella setups, but that's only if I strike it rich. I wouldn't actually shoot that gun, it would stay behind a glass case. :)

    We put a mouth full of sharp teeth, or a skull, or some other sort of menacing-looking engravings or moldings on a gun, then wonder why people think we're dangerous?

    To each his own, I suppose.

    I really hope the majority of society is not this judgemental about tatoos and piercings.

    Are you serious? You don't believe that the majority of people judge you by how you look?

    Those teeth don't look properly staked to me, and therefore are unfit for a battle rifle.

    Not my thing, wouldnt want it if it was half that price. Id rather have the same thing for cheaper from aimsurplus, without the face, and if I could have them drop the purely cosmetic finger cuts, I would.

    It just seems strange to me that people would object to their ar-15 being called an "evil black gun" or an "assault weapon"
    then go and get an ar-15 with a purely cosmetic snarling demon face on it that was originally designed to intimidate the enemy during assaults. I agree that it shouldnt be an issue, and in a perfect world such things would not matter..... but they do.

    Edit: Im not really into zombies, rollmarks of historical documents, or other cosmetics on my gun either though. to each their own

    I think they did a fine job on it.
    But it just seems kinda child-like or something.
    I don't know.

    I think its awesome! I've been judged by my tattoos, my obnoxiously loud Harley and by my gun collection. If judgmental busybodies bothered me I suppose I'd wear only slacks and dress shirts while driving my prius to my next round of golf. People judge. It's the nature of the beast. It takes all kinds. Even the scumdogs have their place ;)

    On the Curtis P40 Warhawk teeth look good, on those rifles? Not so much. Hey, just my opinion.

    Anyone have a source for gold caps? For the guy who has everything, that lower might be one more thing, or not. I don't find it particularly inspiring or distasteful and no doubt if I owned one there would be paint. $300...another pass for price.
