Ares Armor 80% lowers $95

Recommended Posts

Just got it in the mail. Looks pretty good. a few machining marks to polish out on the exterior. Matches up nicely to my DPMS upper. Can't wait to start working on finishing it. Will upload pics later when I get some free time

For me in KommieFornia it's worth it to do an 80% lower. DROS fees, tax and all the other crap makes lowers not cheaper. Also being able to build it myself so Gov. Moonbeam can't take it is an added bonus! I would love to "Escape CA" but my career makes that very dificult. Until I escape 80% lowers are the way to go. I've done 6 AR15's on 80%ers and am milling my 1st LR308 lower from Ares Armor as soon as I receive my Fulton Armory LPK!

Now, see - for some reason, I thought you were from the El Paso, Texas area.  I had no idea you were from kalifornia.

 

I have NO IDEA why I thought that...   <lmao>

I never understood.... why pay more for an 80%? You can get a finished aero precision lower for less than $80.

Late to the party again -- the few FFL's around here that will handle a transfer generally want about $40. That pushes the price up to $120 (plus shipping?)  A QD308 (DPMS compatible) 80% from Quentin Defense runs $99 (plus shipping), and the box comes with an abbreviated blueprint showing just the work that remains to be done.  If one has adequate tooling (I have an MD30 "bench" mill) then no jig is required.

There's also something to be said for the satisfaction of DIY and getting exactly what one wants.
