Anybody had any issues with any of them that I should steer clear of? Are all billet lowers pretty much the same in terms of functionality?

Get the ARFCOM billet lower, of course.

Whichever has the best lines and appeals to you. I have a BRO set that is gorgeous. Sexy rollmarks, and it came with a CH and dust cover.

I am building my 11.5" SBR on a Black Rain Ordnance upper and lower. That receiver set got me hooked as soon as I saw them. Yeah, it's way more expensive than a regular one, but seeing how I'm dropping $200 more anyway, I want one that looks as good as it functions. Billet.....regular...?? They are all about the same. The arguements over which is stronger is silly, they both work great for what they were designed to do. In the end it comes down to asthetics, what do you want yours to look like? POF....still don't know if its Pakastani Ordnance Factory or not. If I was doing it over, I'd look at the Spikes "Biohazard" billet. Looks great and the features seem to be endless. Maybe next time.....

+1 for Spikes Biohazard
There are also a few other options to consider,Seekins, Mega, AXTS just to name a few. I have experience with POF, Spikes BIO, Seekins, and Mega they are all top quality lowers and functionality is the same.

Thanks for all of the good info./ suggestions, fellas. Those Biohazard and AR15.com lowers look pretty tough. I ended up going with the Black Rain lower. I don't know if I over paid at $255 shipped but it looks like a pretty good piece. It'll be going into a build with a PWS Diablo upper.

Thanks guys-will do. It is probably more of an 'assembly' vs. a true build since I am just throwing the parts together but pics will get posted.

I bought a POF a couple of years back to go with my Bushmaster upper.

Even though very satisfied with the combo, today's billets are giving POF a run for their money !!
