lower

There was some buzz on the internet about this Photoshop I posted in back in 2009:

I don’t remember any company jumping on the bandwagon and actually getting them made in 2009.  Looks like Palmetto State Armory thought it would be a good idea to capitalize on this year’s upcoming November election so they are making some up like the mock-up pictured below:

I’m assuming it’s supposed to be Anti-Obama by the “NOBO12” part of it… but that’s the only giveaway that it isn’t meant to support Obama.  Kind of a fail if you ask me.  The original Photoshop got the point across better.

I really couldn’t care less about “custom” AR-15 lowers with dumb markings on them.  Seems like i’m in the minority on that opinion though, because every time someone says they are going to run a batch anything but “SAFE” and “FIRE” on it, people go nuts.

Thoughts?  Are you a sucker for custom/different fire selector lower receiver engravings?

A classy 3D video animation from CMMG shows us how it’s done:

Do it asap and secure your membership in the AR-15 Builders Club.

The video makes some of the steps look easy as pie… when in reality it’s going to take you a few tries unless you’re a seasoned pro.

CMMG makes a lot of AR-15 related items.  You can check out their website – HERE

Lower receivers CNC machined from certified 7075 aluminum forgings and anodized per Mil-A-8625. Lower receivers are marked with “multi-use” for use of different calibers.

I had never heard of SI Defense until now.  I’m sure after this deal they will be a lot more well known, especially if the lowers are quality.

$500 for a custom logo though? LOL that seems a touch excessive!

$10 extra for clear anodizing, or $40 for colors is definitely reasonable though.

Too bad I already have more lowers than uppers :(  I’m sure they will have enough orders to keep them busy, without one from me.

This is an awesome idea.

Whoever engraved that really needs to proof read though, because “California” and “Contains” are spelled incorrectly.

Thanks to Kevin for the picture.

Either this is a mistake, the lowers are out of spec, or it’s the best deal EVER!
