80% lower comparison chart

 

The following table compares various brands of 80% lowers in terms of material, price and features. The chart will grow as more lowers are reviewed. Click on the brand name in the chart to see the complete review for that lower. If you are a manufacturer and would like to have your lower reviewed please send us an email using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page. Sorry this chart runs off the screen on mobile devices. I haven't found a good alternative to using an actual table for the data. I've added some blank lines before the table so the ad doesn't cover the table on mobile devices.
