Ready to build

Recommended Posts

Hello, first topic, hope to discuss!

I am specifying a new build based on a DPMS upper. The exact model I am basing off of is:

?id=4852

This will be a California rifle, and I am seeking a great lower that's OLL.

See you later in the build!

TM is a great company with a great product line, and A+ on customer service. this lower should be off list but not being from Cali, I don't know, good luck.

Thanks! I have them bookmarked, and will be calling them next week. Hopefully they sell to John Q, from the looks of their finished pieces, looks like great quality.

Do you have a thread on how you went about preparing the lower? (Finishing).

They already have finished, annodized .308 lowers.  Last time I checked, they were only $200 before shipping - that's one hell of a deal for a stripped .308 lower.  Did you check into that, possibly going that route?  Assembling a stripped lower with LPK is pretty simple to do, regardless of experience level.

Well, I figured on having a 'set up' piece when done, hence going with the complete rifle.

While waiting, I'll check into what you said here, what is LPK?

Yep, my fault - lower parts kit.  Brownells has some videos on the 'net on the installation process, and there are many very good guides posted on different message boards.  It's a job that about anyone can do with a few basic (talking VERY basic) tools.  If anything were to go seemingly wrong, you've got tons of help right here on this board, too.  There's alot of us here that would chime in on guidance, written assistance, tips/tricks, whatever.
