Finally started to see AR lowers drop back into the 120-150$ range, about damn time. Definitely cool to make something custom from an 80% - even buying a stripped lower and building it up from there gave me a lot of satisfaction after seeing the finished product a month or so later. Be sure to post pics of your progress. Are you going to have it coated in a specific color or pattern or go with black? A buddy of mine got a dip kit for around 100$ and dipped a shotgun of his in a camo pattern, turned out really cool.
