    Default Best AR lower for the money?

    Best deals I'm finding (dollar wise) at the moment are a DPMS striped lower for $115, DTI for $120, or YHM for $120? Any recommendations? I'd keep shopping around but I'm chasing myself in circles and getting impatient...

    My most recent AR-15 was built on an LRB Arms lower receiver from Widener's (linked here). It's a top-notch receiver (especially for $79) and I like the crossed cannon logo and "U.S. RIFLE" marking. My total cost with shipping and transfer fees was about $110.

    Any idea if LRB is truly mil-spec or only advertised as such? Otherwise this seems tough to pass up...

    By the way, just got off the phone with Brownells. The Spikes stripped lower is expected to be back in stock at Brownells at the end of Feb.

    No one should be waiting for AR lowers to come back in-stock in this market unless it's something super cheap or super rare. Good sub-$100 lowers are plentiful.

    I know DSA (known for FALS) were recently selling lowers for $55. They are from a batch where the finish got screwed up, so you'd most likely want to refinish it.

    You can pick up a stag lower for around $100 most places.
