Are these any good?  I've heard that these have a spotty reputation, but I've alos heard that last few years they've gotten quite a bit better?  Apparently there is some sort of a loophole that would allow me to build an AR in California.  However, the only brand available to me right now is Vulcan.  Is it worth my time?

Thanks.
Ilya

Check out AR15.com.

I've seen them talked about from time to time, but I don't know a Vulcan from a Klingon....

I ran a search on AR15...Looks like the Vulcan is not very popular.

Thanks cheaptrick.

 

I saw those and also looked around the web some more.  I saw a lot of people with problems with uppers and some with problems with lowers.  They make both aluminum and carbon fiber lowers and I found absolutely zero information on aluminum lowers.  The catch is that here in Commifornia I may be able to utilize a loophole to build a real AR out of one of these.  Unfortunately, better brand lower receivers are not available to me, and I am thinking of perhaps buying three or four of these receivers to see if I might get lucky with one or two.

Nope.  Only ARs with a fixed non-detachable 10 round magazine are legal, which means that every time you reload you have to pull out the pin, tilt forward the upper receiver assembly and manually reload.

 

However, it looks like for manufacturers who are not yet on the assault weapon list I can get a stripped receiver.  Then if they get added to the list, I can go to the authorities and register the receiver as an assault weapon.  Then I can build it up into anything I want.  Since Vulcan is not yet on the list, I may be able to pull it off.

It is a fixed mag AR.  There are several of this type available here, but I am not especially interested in them.  I think I've got a way to build a detachable mag AR in California.  I'll let you know how it pans out.
