Anyone ever use this lower receiver?

I am looking into building my first AR-15 and I am wondering if anyone has used this lower receiver. I know that the lower is a good place to save money but I don't want one that is junk either so would love to hear what you guys think of this.

I've never used on or seen one up close, but people talk about that brand, Spikes, as if it is very good.

Wideners has one for a few dollars less that I have seen up close, and it seems very good - and has favorable reviews on another forum (M4Carbine.net) - the URL is http://wideners.com/itemdetail.cfm?i...13&dir=700|863 - note I do not work for any of these companies, just want help you get your lower.

I have seen one before. I haven't used it but I checked out the stripped lower. Looked like good quality to me.

Spikes is GOOD TO GO.

I have built 5 AR's on Spike's Lowers. They've all been good to go. I really like the spider logo, and the newer ones (They call them GEN 2) have nice deep engraving that makes it much easier to "color fill."

Do you want me to post pictures of some of my bulids?
