Beats me then. Mine worked flawlessly.
What was it that we paid for those anyway? Was it $115 each?
Beats me anymore. It was a few sleeps ago. I just remember at the time it was cheap compared to others. Nowadays a lower is as low as 30$.
Id imagine you could sell them in a few days on here. I think there was someone selling or looking for one not too long ago. Not sure if it went well or not.
Well I'd never really planned to sell them, but was saving them for a special build like for my son. But, if there's no way to resolve the magwell issue, I will have no use for them. Too much money tied up in them to use them for cool looking esee paperweights. Other lowers are crazy cheap nowadays so I guess I'd probably trade them for another brand, or sell them. I have two BCM uppers and would like to have a BCM lower to match.
Is there a firearms/parts trade thread now?
Just the same thread down below. Might try and work those mags in and out a bit and see if it can be serviceable. But im not there to see whats up.
Mine were snug, but have gotten better. Take a paint stick and put sandpaper on it with double sided tape or staples.
Take the lower and run the sandpaper on each side of the inner mag well. Its aluminum so even if you remove annodizing it wont really hurt anything
They look perfect and it's probably just me being anal, but they are a bit snug. I'm sure with use they'd be fine.
I would like to do some trading for a BCM lower to match my two uppers though. Like I said, I'm anal.
I'd say that'd take care of it but being that they are new and unused, I'll prob hold off for now. But I appreciate the suggestion!
Best of luck with your sale and new builds!
Two of mine were very tight and after some interweb perusing and some measurements , comparing them to a half a dozen other lowers I took a file to mine they now work just fine.
After some head to head comparisons today with my other bushmaster lower, there is little if any difference. At least none that a few hundred rounds wouldnt sort out nicely.
Yeah the problem I had was mine would not drop empty mags reliably so i made a few clearance passes with a file and am now GTG.
What type of file did you use?
Well that escalated quickly.
May as well get right to the point!
I've got two still in the wrappers.....just waiting for inspiration to over take me!!
An ESEE lower and 3 bucks will now get you a cup of coffee at a lot of places.
I think if it's one of the billet lowers you only need 2 bucks with it.
