Quarter Circle 10 dedicated lower I hear are nice. I've never handled one though.

QC10 makes the nicest pistol lower I've found. If you have 9mm Glocks they have one that accepts Glock mags.

All other parts are standard as far as LPK, buffer, etc. they also sell uppers as well. I've never used one of them. I had my 10mm upper built by RMW Extreme.

I used quarter circle 10 upper/lower receiver and barrels, JP trigger,bolt/carrier and silent captured spring/buffer. Runs like a champ. I even built up a 16" upper because I knew it would take awhile for the form 1. Now I'm just waiting on the Octane 45 can and my SBR upper will be complete(I went with a tucked can design)



100 yard group with a red dot and 16" upper

I'd jump on it if that is what you are wanting. I had to wait for the barrels to come back in stock. I was lucky to find the receiver set the first time I looked.

I did a new frontier dedicated lower with 7" PSA upper. Rugged Obsidian can. The QC10
Is nice if they were in stock when I purchased I would have gone that route.

Bumping this back to the top as I never went through with it.

Seeing if QC10 is still the way to go? About to buy a lower or a Receiver set. Looking at the these:

I have a question-- with what's available these days in the "pistol" classification, why would you opt to buy a $200 federal tax stamp for an SBR (specifically in the AR platform)?

Given the history of the ATF flip-flopping on legal vs illegal on a whim is enough for me; I.e. bump stocks....

Theyíve already been wishy-washy on pistol braces also.

My answer is just because pistol braces suck as rifle stocks. A legit rifle stock is much much nicer to shoot shouldered.

I've built two on PSA dedicated 9mm lowers. Shooting both suppressed with Omega 9K cans. If I were going to use one for competition I would spend the money on the JP, but just to play with...PSA has worked fine.

you could build a nice one for that budget. armaspec makes some cool buffers, cheap version of the jp silent. stern defense makes some good uppers, sometimes on sale on opticsplanet
the new SBA3 braces are adjustable, check it
