I'm a big fan of AR-57 uppers and have several of thier lowers. I had one lower purchased back at the height of the AR demand craze that had improper machining of the bolt hold button slots. AR-57 customer service was great and they more that took care of my issue. I would recommend them anyone.

This a great lower and a solid foundation to your AR build. I purchased my lower last February during the height of the gun buying frenzy and although this brand was relatively new it has proven to me to be a winner! I am aware of some issues with this lower around the time of my purchase but mine is perfect, and from what I have heard the company stood by the defective lowers and the customers that purchased them. I am extremely happy with my lower it has a beautiful finish, the pictograms are out standing; as are the roll marks as a whole. The lower parts kit installed without a hitch and the description doesn't mention it but it comes with a pre drilled upper tensioning screw feature. The screw itself doesn't come with it I had to purchase that separately, but it is nice that you have that option. I would defiantly recommend this lower to my friends and others.

The receiver is out of spec in the bolt catch area. You will have to buy a 9mm colt catch and modify it yourself. These receivers should not be sold or at least have a disclaimer about the bolt catch since not everyone is a novice smith.

I bought 3 of these lowers. I find them to be great. The only thing I had to do was drill the buffer pin hole a little. I bought the cheapest lower parts kit I could find. The parts kit went in so easy. I bought an Bushmaster AR-15 Moe M4. I compared the bushmaster lower to the one I built and seen no difference. I put the lower I just built on my new bushmaster and it fit just fine. Now I'm looking to build an upper as cheep as I can using all good parts. I still have 730.00 to spend to catch up to what I paid for the bushmaster. Remember your building a gun and you will run into a few problems that you will have to take care of. If you don't feel you can do that. You should just buy one that someone else put together.

I bought this lower receiver a couple weeks ago to build a Palmetto upper. I waited until I was done to do this review and I wish others would also. This receiver is junk. The bolt hold open area is off and will not catch magazine follower to hold bolt open. I thought maybe I had a short or bad bolt catch so I bought several different brands including a Colt. None of them worked the receiver is off about a 1/6 of an inch. The tang will not catch the follower on any brand of magazines. Please look at buying a different lower receiver this one is junk. I am out 100 bucks plus a transfer fee. I hope this will help someone out before they make the same mistake I did. If I could post pictures here I would. Buds was great as always and I will continue to buy from them.
