The remaining steps to be completed include the fire control group, trigger pin, hammer pin, trigger slot, and safety selector hole all need to be machined out of the 80% lower receiver. All of Vision Defense’s 80% lower receivers are either cerakoted in house or left raw. All Vision Defense 80% lower receivers have the rear takedown pin lug already removed.

    Well finished 80 lower. I’ll need to do very little prep prior to cerakoting.

    Very high quality was pleased to see a safe and fire stamped. Very good customer service. Only issue was when I ordered it did not show they were temporary out of stock. Took an extra week. Worker was very polite and friendly when I call to ask about the time delay.

    Beautiful 80% tungsten lower. Was worrying if this site was legit. But so glad I ordered from them. It came a little later than expected, but worth the wait. Will be ordering from them again!!!

    Product was on back order and I had to change the mailing address. When I called up vision defence, I was supprised by a person answering and not an automated message. They had no problem with the change and updated me regularly via email about the status of my order. The product is flawless.

    The lower looks great, it is on the less expensive end for cerakote lowers which is a plus. It got to me a little slow but I think that’s because they cerakote to order. I am very happy 10/10 will buy from them again.

    Excellent product. Armor black looks like an extremely dark grey. Color does not quite match my upper. Not an issue with me however.

    I purchased 3 lowers. All 3 different color. One had a spot where the cerakot was lite. But they quickly sent me a return shipping label. The 2 I finished are excellent will purchase from them again

    Got Color? Cerakote is great for that two tone look or special build. I frog tape before milling to protect but you just wipe clean after shooting. No cleaners needed. Perfect Lower! I have milled several of these over the years and never had any issues when using new bits. Fit is perfect and when on sale, price is unbeatable. Always quick shipping when no political scare. I got a few extra just to have around.

    The holes all line up well but when paired with a Vision Defense lower, it doesn’t mate up flush on the sides. It has a slight overlap to the side and isn’t nice and strait. It could be the upper or the 80% lower, I’m not sure. The weapon will still function but it looks a bit off.

    Couldn’t ask for a better built lower! The shipping was remarkably fast as well!
