Welcome! I did not see that but I do see they still haven't drilled out the bolt catch detent hole. I don't know what their deal is on that.

You're serious they don't drill out the BC detent hole? Wow. I guess you get what you pay for. Doesn't sound like that big of a hassle for them to mill it out.

The one I got didn't and I have heard several others say that as well. I really think neglected to do that when they sent in their sample to ATF for a determination letter and haven't sent in a new one with the hole drilled. They really should state that in their description. It wasn't that big of a deal to drill out but it's somewhat critical on placement and depth so I prefer not to do it. I'd have to get a really good sale price to make up for that oversight. Especially when Tactical Machining has their anodized lowers on sale for $54.

Thank you Jefe for notifying me of TM's lower sale!

I bought two Anderson lowers recently and the holes were drilled out.
