3D Printable Stocks and Grips

3D Printable Stocks and Grips
One of my goals with the Super Lower is to provide a comprehensive lower package. And this should include the furniture needed to complete the rifle. Why buy a stock when you can print a much better one? That was my thought when I designed the stocks and pistol grips.

V3.0 Super AR-15 Lower

V3.0 Super AR-15 Lower
Besides the normal refinements to the fit and finish of the lower. V3.0 boasts a redesigned right side. Resembling the right side of the later forty five degree lowers, V3.0 has a much stronger neck then the older Super Lowers did. V3.0 is currently the recommend version of the Super Lower.
