deal or no deal price of Ar lower

Quick question, found a AR lower sat that I assume us in the .223 category for 175.00$ NIB what you guys thunk . I forgot brand of lower, but was curious if lowers fall into category of you get what you pay for. Is 175 to low indicating cheap reciever? New to Ar's just curious and thinking of possibilities. Thanks for any info. If I get over to where I seen it I will post brand this weekend.

    Aluminum or polymer? Fully machined I am assuming. Is it complete? Or stripped? Depending on brand/manufacturer the price may be just about right to a little high. I recently picked up 2 stripped lowers for under $200 direct from manufacturer

    My New Frontier Arms Polymer cost 120. It has a State of the Art Arms upper in 300 whisper and the fit and function is excellent. My only complaint is that the pins and hammer are polymer too...knowing the brand is the only way of getting a good estimate on a fair price.

    $175 for a stripped upper is over priced for ANYTHING other than billet.

    If it's complete, that's probably about on par...but I'd much rather pick my own grip, stock, trigger and trigger pins on my own.

    Depending on the brand that price can be right on for a stripped lower. They range from 80.00 to over 300.00 depending on quality and the company who makes it, and of course where you buy it. So without knowing brand etc it could be a good price.
