I've got this crazy idea going about collecting a lower w/ roll marks from each State in this Union. I've got 5 down already. WV, IL, CT, MA, FL
I need help finding manufacturers/companies for certain states. Anyone care to help?

Here's my list so far. I know that a lot of states, like FL, CT, MA, IL, TX, have MANY, MANY manufacturers to offer. I just sort of threw the first one that came to mind (or that I was able to find) onto the list.

First, I just want to get one for each. So if you are aware of one from an unlisted state, suggest it, please. After they are all listed, I'll add all of them.


POST PICTURES OF THE STATE ROLL MARKS IF YOU HAVE THEM!

Stag Arms is pretty much CMTs retail outlet. They share facilities. Mark Malowski's (Stag president) father owns CMT.

I think you will be having a hard time with Alaska. I am not sure if a manufacturer exists up here. Good luck with the project.

Not sure. Either way I need both of those states, although I have one for VA.
Do they sell lowers?

Thanks, that helped a bit, but I don't think all of those companies make lowers, or ones available for purchase.

Kimber, for example - do they make lowers?

Also, the pictures I've seen have LRWC in MO? SEE

Colt=CT
actually CT has a few others as well.
There is a guy in Seymor, CT that makes lowers with his name on them and also will make them for other companies. I have to look for his name, I can't recall off the top of my head.

CT has a bunch I've come across.
Does Colt sell lowers though?
For my project I'll have to buy the lowers so if Colt doesn't sell stripped lowers it's a no-go.
However, I'll probably add them all to the list in the end - for informational purposes.

FWIW, I'm trying to stick with options that are currently made or recently manufactured.

I think you're referring to JV Precision, which makes LRBs lowers for them.
