Default Best cheap AR lower?

Contemplating an AR-15 build project, and I'm looking at lower receivers- Panther, Yankee Hill, and others come in around $100-150. Any thoughts on which to choose?

Thanks!

Is there any brand that is basically "junk" and should be avoided?

You can easily get a Rock River in your target price range and they are one of the best.

Cool Do it right the first time.

Thats like whats the best fat thin girl !!!

Give us a break here, just pay the extra 30 bucks and build something that has a solid receiver for a life time of service.

Just do it right from the start. No offense meant but taking advice from others who went cheap instead of quality is hardly the way to start building a weapon.

Its a weapon, not a screw driver.

I would get the cheapest one I could find but make sure it uses a mil spec receiver tube rather than the commercial size. As long as the parts fit up when you build it out, price is not really indicative of quality. There are a few extra features that you can pay for, like checkering forward of the mag well or a cool design on the mag well but I would rather have almost any cheap brand off the shelf than some RRA or DPMS lowers...overpriced and overrated.
