    Buy Em Cheap and Stack em Deep

    This is even more important for those about to have a ban go into effect later this year.

    PSA has Built Lowers for $199. You cannot even build them this cheap using decent parts.

    No one can bitch durring the next ban/runup that they didn't have a chance to buy a few more.

    What if I want an actual mil-spec receiver extension and an H buffer?

    Does PSA ever let you pay a little bit more for an upgrade instead of paying for parts I don't want and then replacing them later?

    "Milspec diameter" IS NOT milspec. It is simply the same diameter as milspec.

    That's why they don't simply call it milspec, and that is why they don't list what it is made from. Because I guarantee it's 6061 or similar, and not the 7075 that is milspec.

    Please read more carefully.

    It says mil spec diameter receiver extension, that would only leave you having to replace the buffer and spring. To me that seems like a pretty good deal. Even if it came with a h buffer, many would still replace it with heavier weight buffers. Ymmv though!

    this would be perfect for a 22LR build.

    "mil spec diameter" is not milspec.

    That is why they say "milspec diameter" and not simply milspec.

    That is why they don't tell you what it is made of.

    Because I guarantee it's 6061, or similar, and not 7075-T6.

    That is why I asked if PSA, for people who choose to have the part be the stronger milspec material, allows for an upgrade instead of buying an entirely new part.

    This is why marketing departments exist. To knowingly and intentionally mislead people into believing they are buying something they are not, without ever actually lying. It's all about what you say, and what you don't say.
