    Well, it's a keyhole forged marked lower, so it's a good quality forging.
    It is a fairly well know brand, lot of builds on em, probably some complaints but no more than others I don't think.

    I've transferred a lot of them. Speaking from a manufacturer's prospective, the machine work is acceptable but they cut corners on finishing. There is a rather large difference between knocking the chunks off and anodizing, sandblasting and anodizing, and blasting/shot peening/anodizing. Then there is anodizing, type II anodizing, type III anodizing...

    For $69 they are a hell of a deal. I know how much it costs me to machine lowers and then finish them properly, and that is a very good retail price point for a functional product.

    But then, I think the plastic lowers are neat too :)

    And none of it matters if you Duracoat or Cerakote it.
