    Has anyone ordered any of the Colt lowers Brownell’s has on sale?

    Colt Lowers

    Sounds like they are blem 6290 lowers. I’m wondering what the deal is on these lowers. These may be worth a look. I started reading a thread on barfcom about these but got sick of the BS. First Sarge?

    I love Arfcom came for The tech forums and stayed for GD but dammed if they can’t screw up a thread quickly.

    A fully finished lower for 250 isint terrible. The Colt name is just that, a name. Between shipping and an FFL fee you might be able to put one together yourself if you’re even a little mechanically inclined for a comparable amount.

    Yeah I have successfully built lowers in the past. I’m looking to get top tier(Colt, BCM, DD etc) factory built rifles set up for my two kids. I wanted to know if anyone had experience with this particular run of lowers that Brownell’s is discounting.

    Do Colt lowers still have the block?

    You are going to see more and more of this due to the AR market being saturated.

    From what I know, these are standard 6920 lowers.

    What that means is that they are going to be in spec and work.

    @ffhounddog that’s interesting about the block. Per the Q and A section on the Brownell’s link these do not have the block. The person who answered the question goes on to state Colt has not put the block in place for sometime. I guess whoever is answering the questions has some bad info.

    From what I have been told if it says Colt M4, it may not have the Block, if it says Law Enforcement it probably will because they have runs of lowers finished for certain agencies and governments. Mine is a made for Mexico one.

    Where did you get it?

    What is the roll mark?

    I can’t remember the last time I saw one with the block in it.
