The other day I ran across these new lowers from Vorn USA. They are a forged lower receiver called the Lima 1 which features some sweet milling on the surface for weight reduction which looks really cool. I like that they did not machine all the way through which will help them maintain their strength and also keep dirt and dust out of the internals.
I couldn’t find a weight anywhere but as you can see in the photos below, they remove a decent amount of material. Not like an ounce or two is gonna break anyone’s back but ounces can add up. The lowers look pretty stinking sexy and for just $99 with your choice of Black Anodized or a number of different cerakote colors its not a bad deal either. They are also available in raw aluminum for those who want to do their own custom finish.
Get the look of billet, but with the strength of a forging.
These receivers have been strategically milled to reduce weight and give a custom look.
– USA Cerro Forged 7075 T6 Aluminum (keyhole forge mark)

– Mil spec finish with smooth clean anodize coat
Also available in raw aluminum
Now to be 100% up front, until this weekend I had never heard of Vorn USA and I have never handled their product but they are working with some other legit firearms industry companies and seem to be good to go. If you’re interested in the new Lima 1 lowers from Vorn USA, head on over to their website and check them out. I may have to pick up a few of these myself.
**Edit: Looks like they are back in-stock.**
