The front take down pin detent is the hardest part.

Get some pliers, and some electrical tape. Wrap the "teeth" of the pliers with the tape so you don't scratch things up.

And yes, a stripped lower for $80 is a good deal, just depends on the manufacturing tolerances they were machined to, which for that price, will probably be pretty sloppy. Precision = money.

WI Go Bucky!!!!!!!
does the "why not spikes" question have to be asked in EVERY goddamn thread? They're a shit company who fucking jacked their prices up right before the election.

plus with a lower, you get what you pay for. Nobody on WMD believes it, so don't take our advice and just go buy your fucking $80 lower.

I haven't noticed there prices to be anything high. If anything they have great deals on most of their stuff.

Sounds like forum-induced bandwagon hate.

Don't buy Spike's.

Otherwise, it's easy to assemble a stripped lower. Shouldn't take more than 30-45min the first time follow directions. Once you know how to do it, it takes about 5min.

More Spike's hate. Not trying to get in Spike's asshole but I'm just curious as to why all the hate...

For the 5,000th time in this forum and the roughly 2.3 billionth time on Google;

Spike's Tactical doubled their prices when Obama got elected to try and cash in on people buying up lowers. And when they got called on it, they tried to say all the other retailers had done the same thing and they were "forced" to, when in fact, every other retailer who had anything in stock had not raised their prices significantly.

They claim their guns are to spec but don't provide documentation they actually met any specifications.

It's super easy, I can't do much and I put mine together with no problems. There are a million online tutorials and vids to help you. Also you can get a pre put together lower like the LMT Defender that's top quality, buy a complete upper, put two pins together and you've "build" your first AR

:bowrofl: you are one DUMB motherfucker
he isn't the one that said there's only one manufacturer of lower receivers and then proceeded to tell us we all don't know what we're talking about just because you're uninformed.

Mega, CMT, LMT, LAR, Sun Devil, Superior Arms, Olympic, and any other manufacturers will be upset to learn that they don't make their own shit.
