    Had Southwest Engravers do a lower today. She did an outstanding job and it was $15. She may have some strange hours, but that is where I am going from here on out.

    FYI, you will need to remove your pistol grip and bad-lever or similar due to the way it goes in the machine. I left the buffer tube on and the rest of the lower was complete.

    Had a good experience with Southwest Engravers yesterday. Highly recommended. She did it in about 5 minutes while I waited, it looks good, and it was only $15. Be aware though she can't do it on the front of mag wells or on the underside next to the trigger slot due to the way the machine is set up. I went next to the safety markings on the right side.

    Cool, I heard he does good work. Looking forward to seeing your finished setup with that fancy lower. I am boring -- I just used a regular forged mil spec one. I just put my first SBR together yesterday.

    Got a YHM suppressor awaiting approval as well that will fit under the handguard. It's a .300 Blackout.

    10.5" barrel
    Battle Arms Development billet upper and lower
    Rainier Evolution handguard
    Fortis Shift short front grip
    Primary arms 1-4 on PEPR
    Billet Seekins mag release and bolt drop
    Billet 60-degree ambi safety from BAD (if I remember right)
    Burnt Bronze Cerakote

    <edit> Oh, and the drop in trigger form FBT, I think

    Damn nice setup! I am doing a .300 AAC upper to go on my SBR lower very soon myself. I have the barrel and gas tube on my Amazon wish list, so I'm waiting to see if anybody gets it for me for Xmas. If not, it's getting bought the next day. I'm going super short with an 8" barrel. I'm waiting on a Silencerco Omega myself. Slick setup with the muzzle device/can partially under the handguard. I thought about doing that, but it would prevent me from using the can with a QD setup, and I plan on switching it out a lot between rifles, so I'm just going with a 7" free float over the 8" barrel. It should come right up to the threads.
