    Very nice. Ordered mine yesterday...apparently lead times are around 2 weeks now. Looking forward to another AR build.

    Does your's have the tension screw? hows the fit to your upper?

    Upper to lower fit on mine is good. Yes it does have the tension screw. I just barely have it set to touch the rear lug. A firm push on the take down pin is how I have it set.

    Might be picking one up here pretty soon for my MRP. QD lower, ALG ACT trigger, Ti-7 stock, ergo grip. Rest milspec parts.

    I am not 100 percent sure but in the high 90s that they are sun devil lowers with Qd roll mark on them. Sun devil makes just about all the billet lowers for local az guys. I use Arizona armory's as they tend to be cheaper vs other resellers for the same lower just different rollmark.

    The easiest way to tell generally speaking is the tension screw that gets rid of the slop between the upper and lower.

    You got that backwards there mobilecommand :wavey:

    It's the other way around, Sun Devil does not make them, Quentin Defense does.

    One of the finest platforms around is the QD. I am NOT prejudiced because they are an Arizona company...they flat make GOOD stuff.

    Here is my QD upper/lower build.
