A couple people have commented the Cross Machine & Tool lower/
stock is expensive, with a full MSRP of $659. That isn’t cheap, but
when was the last time you saw cheap gutter trash leftovers on this
The CMT UHP15PDW will no doubt have a lower street price, but let us
take a look at what we get here. First, we are getting a complete ambi
lower. Next we are getting a stock built into the receiver, which is
giving us the most solid and low profile option available. In addition
to that, we are getting an actual system, meaning it is designed to work
together with our existing uppers. The design change here is to the
buffer, and CMT has implemented a shortened buffer that has been tested
to work with a variety of ammo. Similar systems have run $300-400 just
for the stock, and they have still needed to be tweaked to run properly.
Cheap? No. Quality? Yes. CDI factor? The only reason I
give this a 9 instead of a 10 is because everyone is able to buy one and
it isn’t a limited piece.
