Description:

Not familiar with this manufacturer. But it is the only metal lower I know of in stock, and I haven't seen one for 4 days, since the polymers. I'd appreciate if people could comment if this is a quality manufacturer that justifies the price or just gouging.

I ordered three of these from

I ordered three of these from AIM Surplus just a few weeks ago for $75 each. Mine also have milling problems. The milling for "FIFTEEN" was too wide so that the raised area in the middle of the letters was almost gone, which makes it look a little odd. Also, the serial numbers were milled much deeper than the "S/N". These are mostlly cosmetic problems that should have made these seconds. As far as the forging and other aspects: I installed a Hogue trigger in one of them and the Hogue pins stick out a littler further than other receivers that I have used. Also, these receivers leave a larger gap between the lower and upper receivers. The gap is normal at the pivot pin put increases back to the take-down pin. Mine have rather low serial numbers so the milling might have been corrected. I purchased AeroPrecision lowers for about the same price that are better quality, but have less flare in the mag well opening.

I'm not a big fan of J&G. They like to price gouge the hell out of their customers. Go back order from Brownells and not feed into the craze.

I do have 3 of these from Aim pre scare that WERE $74.99 each. They're just as good as any other "mil spec" lower I have to include spikes and dpms.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Thanks for all the feedback. Sadly I bought two, and they are now sold out. Oh, the times we live in. I figure the $100 premium is peanuts vs the alternative we may face. I agree they have the right to charge what they can, you would.

AR FiveSeven makes the 5.7x28mm AR15 uppers that take PS90 mags. I thought they were quality products having owned one of those uppers. However, be careful of these lowers. I found this comment from someone who ordered 3 from AIM Surplus:

Price-wise, it's ridiculously higher than "normal", but given the market right now, it's not unreasonable...if they are indeed mil-spec.

If someone told you that your job might be obsolete in a couple of months don't you think you would try to make as much money as possible before the deadline it? It's not gouging its supply/demand

I have a few of these and they are good lowers (meet all the Mil-spec requirements). Based on the current supply/demand curve 199.95 actually seems decent (350-400 on gun broker all day). You can wait for the demand to calm down and and supply to pick back up and buy them for 80-90 but that will all depend on what happens with the new "assault" weapons ban.

The reason is supply and

The reason is supply and demand. When demand is high and supply is low (or in the case of lowers, non-existent) prices can and will soar. Price gouging is a crime in the US and refers to prices of commodities soaring higher in spot areas after natural disasters or other effects when national supply of the item is not limited. Lowers are at an all time, nation wide low inventory level. If you have one today, I'll bet no one would sell it for $80 when someone is willing to pay $199.

Don't accuse these guys of a crime. People will pay for their goods at their asking price.

He/she asked if they were price gouging or if they were of a higher quality to justify the cost... They are not of higher quality. Perhaps I should have used the phrase "wildly inflated due to recent spike in demand".

Supply and demand. Funny how

Supply and demand. Funny how all us "Capitalist" turn Commie when Capitalism works against us, I would say the term to be used is inflated but try finding a lower instock at most places then look on gunbroker and armslist then you will see realitively $200 ain't bad right now.

so called "price gouging"

so called "price gouging" provides important indicators to the market. Some worthwhile reads for the inquistive, much more succinctly stated than I can muster:

http://mises.org/daily/1593

http://lewrockwell.com/paul/paul828.html

and one from he who many of us would say is among the best current day spokesmen combatting gun-grabber non-sense John Lott:
http://www.lewrockwell.com/lott/lott45.html

Though we still may be several years off, at some point in the near future, this same conversation is going to be had about many everyday necessities, commodities, and sundries, not just firearms. I must admit the knee-jerk emotional response, myself included, is to disdain those who "price gouge". If you can remove the emotion and examine from a logical perspective, you will reach the same conclusion.

Sorry I know this is a price watch board for firearm related products and hate to go on a tangent but the amount of posts castigating "price gougers" in the last 2 weeks has been disheartening.

In a normal, non-freaked out

In a normal, non-freaked out environment, these receivers are at the lower end of the aluminum receivers price spectrum. The individual that posted this deal was asking if there was a reason they were more expensive or if they are just gouging. The answer is the latter.
