    If you were part of the old forum and were part of any of the ESEE Lower purchases, where are they now..?

    My ESEE Lower is currently a spare training rifle. I mostly use my SBR, but this is one of my back-ups. BCM Upper with Midwest Industries rail, Primary Arms Red Dot (Which impressively have had zero issues). Weighs in at 7lbs 3.7oz last I checked.

    That's Original Original...lol

    I fell away from the old forum in 2012/13 time frame... that I knew of, there was the ones like yours engraved in the right side, then an order of maybe 120 forged lowers, then possibly a billet version.

    I got a forged one. RAT-095

    I have three of the forged and two of the billet. I am just finishing one of them up for my wife. As soon as her other goodies show up i will see about posting a few pics. maybe I'll even post a pic of mine.

    that's a uw gear minuteman. really cool tab system to keep the flaps closed. quiet and secure, and doesn't wear out or clog with dirt like velcro or snaps.

    thanks, it came out better than expected. i only did the one mag, but i saved my ripped up packing paper stencils, and numbered the spray cans as i went, so if i ever get around to it, maybe i'll be able to duplicate the look...

    Now is the time to watch for sales on parts, they have not been this low in a long time.

    I have numbers 72 and 73 from the forged group buy. I have never started building them into anything until yesterday when my son and I began installing a LPK in one I gave him for Christmas. After we were finished, we noticed that both lowers are too tight in the magazine well with both pmags, and aluminum mags as well. My other lowers of other brands have no issues with the same mags at all, so I'm wondering if anyone else had this issue, and if there is an easy fix for it? Were they out of spec?

    No sir, they are bone stock as the day I received them. They've only been stored in the safe until yesterday but both are tight. The mags do not insert easily at all nor do the drop free.
