First, I ordered my Stag lower from Bud\'s, & as usual the price was more than fair and it was shipped promptly.
Second, this lower however does not look like the Stag lowers from the past as the magazine well of the receiver has more of a roundish look to it, & to be perfectly honest, it looks like this lower would qualify as a blemish, or at least a semi-blemished product.
The workmanship on the front has clearly seen buff marks & abrasions as if they turned a blemished lower receiver into a grade A receiver.
However, the engravings are very good & crisp.
I love Stag products, but at least the one that i got, looks just like a lower receiver made by a well known lower receiver manufacturer in the Pacific Northwest.
