Anderson Lowers

Went and picked up 3 stripped lowers for $99. Now I need to plan what to do with them. I'm thinking a 9mm PCC first. I want to shoot PCC class in speed steel and USPSA. After that no solid plans. Maybe a pistol and a 300 blackout or something bigger than .223. 6.5 creedmore maybe. Ideas?

    Creed won't fit in an AR15. Grendel will.

    Or 6.8 SPC.

    Don't know if they've changed it of not, but the standard 1" grip screws wouldn't fit Andersons in the past, they only threaded for 3/4" screws

    I don't know if that's still the case or not

    All I use for my builds are Anderson lowers. Made to mil-spec, finish is good as well as quality and they are cheap. Get them dirt cheap if you find blemished receivers too.

    No problems with them that I have found....

    I’ve built two guns on Anderson lowers. No issues at all. I have one stripped lower remaining at the moment. When I get a 6x45 barrel for my current AR, that lower will be used with the replaced 223 barrel and spare parts to build a budget home defense AR.

    I have a Colt lower that looks very suspiciously similar to an Anderson.

    Most lower receivers are made by the same handful of manufacturers. I have a list at work of which lowers are made by who. They just have different roll stamps on them.

    Finally got around to putting this up. Here's the list as I have it right now. This is something that changes on a pretty regular basis, but this is as up to date as I have right now. Underlined is the manufacturer and under that the brands they brands they make. I believe Anderson is their own manufacturer.

    ETA - you'll also notice a few of the brands listed under different manufacturers. That's not a mistake. Some of them have different manufacturers making their receivers for them.

    Well, now I know who made the two Palmettos I have assembled. I might not have bought them if I had known they were Olympic, but I did, and they have tested out just fine.

    isn't Olympic out of business now?

    As of the armorers recertification course I went through 3 months ago, this is as up to date as I have.
