I'm almost certain they're the same thing (Aero makes PSA's lowers). Watch the anodizing on them if that's the case.

Aero makes the pictogram versions, no one knows who makes the others.

They seem decent to me but I think the anodizing did come off when lightly hammering in the trigger guard pin, with tape over the hammer. I'll look later tonight but it wasn't a huge concern to me at the time.


Product Name: PSA AR15 Lower - Bullet Pictogram
Item#:
Unit Price: $79.95

Yeah I'm not sure how I feel about that yet, I don't feel ripped off though. I mainly bought it because my -obscure- billet lower doesn't match my bcm upper

I have a mega billet lower on deck, spr time :noes:

Billet lowers typically don't match, aesthetically speaking, forged uppers. The Mega M0500 does match forged uppers though.

Not a true Type III milspec anodizing. When done right, anodizing will penetrate the aluminum and add a few thousandths thickness to the piece being anodized. If it's just on top of the aluminum, it scratches/flakes off alot easier.

Aero does the machining but at what point is the anodizing done? My bet would be each of those guys has their own anodizing, either in-house or subcontracted, setup.
