I wouldn't buy a POF upper but I do like the lowers. Too pricey for my taste though.

Personally, I'd rather buy a Tactical Innovations lower receiver if I was going to spending my money on a "better" lower.

I have a POF 415 lower on one of my AR-15 builds that I really like. The fit, finish and quality are some of the best I have seen on an AR-15 lower. While the price wasn't too bad on mine and while they certainly aren't the cheapest on the market, they are one of the best!

As for the tactical innovations lowers, while they are very nice and also rank up there as a high quality product, I would spend the extra $25 on the POF and not think twice. If you are interested, talk to Tom Mooney over at Mooney's Firearms. The were running a special on stripped POF 415 lowers for $200 shipped.

There is a Tactical Innovations T15 stripped lower on Gunbroker right now for like $112 with 2 days to go.

I have the Bushmaster Upper, which is - i think - made by POF. outstanding work.

not nickel coated like theirs, but the mechanics and parts look identical.

i'd buy their parts in a heartbeat - if it didn't cost more than a mechanical or pig's heart to buy one. :S

If you want a piston upper, LWRC is the way to go imo.

The one in the shop is a Gen II I have found out after a little checking. I may pick it up still, also it is a semi reciever but it has the FA marking on it too.

LWRC looks alright, but they're as expensive, according to their dealer forum, as POF.

I wonder if they require special handguard upper-halves, as the POF ones do, for the larger piston space required...?

mine has a half-inch piston and housing, so it requires a special upper, or like i did, machine the whole center out of the upper rail to accommodate it.

The LWRC piston system is low profile. The rails are proprietary though.
