DPMS lower receiver
What is a fair price for a stripped forged DPMS lower receiver (for an AR15 if there is any doubt)?
I know they are good by reputation but any comments are welcome.

It depends on if you want Stainless or carbon steel or Aluminum.
I think DMPS also makes receivers machined from Titanium. They are probably priced decently steep.
MSRP for a plain ol lower is right around $160.00 (I think)
You can get one from Impact for $109.
You might be able to do better than that if you're willing to shop around. Not much better though - I don't think.

Street on a major-maker save Colt AR lower ranges from $90 to $145 depending on who did it generally. I buy based on finish match to the upper I want.
Driver carries less than $45 worth of remorse.

Thanks guys... I poked around a little bit and apparently the only time people have trouble with DPMS products is when they purchase a complete rifle or an upper, but the happy customers seem to greatly outweigh the unhappy ones.
That's all right because if I do this crazy project I'd most likely use this lower and a DPMS lower parts kit, and then whatever quality M4gery upper I come across at a reasonable price.
I'm going to go see if I can talk the seller down just a little bit.
Sigh, I really shouldn't start a project rifle.
But then again it looks like if you just follow the instructions on AR15.com and piece your own lower together, and then get a preassembled upper, you save some money and a lot of headache because the head spacing etc. is done for you.

It's an easy build , fun too. Ya may run into a few snags, but AR15.com has lots of help / advice to get you thru. When in doubt , check before trying to make it fit.

Model1sales.com has all kinds of parts kits, uppers and pretty much everything else you could want.
They who give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
