Anderson isn't bad but the extra 20 to get a 17 designs billet is 100 percent worth it. This has been going a few days now.
FWIW I have a lot of Andersons and have never had issues with them, but the fit/feel of the 17 is just absolutely worth the upgrade. The one thing I wish is that it wasn't an integrated trigger guard as I'd like a Strike Fang on there for that, but the bolt catch being the screw type rather than that @(@)_$*[email protected])@*&$*#@)[email protected])@*(@* pin absolutely makes up for that. I hate that rollpin.

Those 17 design billet lowers are definitely good looking. I have a modest set of tools for working on ARs. The bolt catch pin can be a beach but I just so happen to have a jig and a couple of special punches just for that process that make it easy.

On my last order of 17 design lowers from Primary I got one of the lake roll pin install tools for 8 bucks. I might never use it but for 8 bucks I'd rather have it and not need it.
