    Well, it looks like 375 other people didn't care as much. I was planning to pick one up too for my wife but was too slow to make up my mind.

    If you knew it would cost you more than 170$ lol

    If you are picky about the name on the side of your budget ban scare lower, just walk away. I guess you should have been more aware of your surroundings and made this purchase earlier when you had the ability to be picky. I know people who were panic buying last year! I've been spending every spare penny on gun stuff since December, just because of C-71.

    People should be thanking TNA for this opportunity.

    I bought a tna mystery box. Ended up with a 11in 223 wylde ar. Pretty happy with the parts and their value to the cost of the box.

    It was an Andersen upper and lower

    Thanks TNA! I grabbed one of these. I already have an AR but was on the fence about another. When I saw this deal I jumped on it. For what it's worth I used a NEA upper and lower for my first AR build with no previous experience. I had zero issues with them. Can't wait to see what is in the box!

    BTW, love the funny emails from these guys.......

    I'd like to say I'm surprised that some guys actually gave them a hard time about the mystery box, but I'm not surprised at all. I just paid like $130 for an Anderson lower, which is about right for what it is. For a few extra dollars, anybody who wanted a complete stripped set could get one through TNA. Obviously it's not going to be a Colt set or some other top end manufacturer, but it's a freaking dirt cheap upper and lower in your hands before (maybe) you can't get them anymore. I know TNA is in it to make money, but I think they deserve props for making an extra effort to get as many lower receivers out the door as possible. Be grateful for this opportunity.

    Yes, people need to chill a bit. Most wouldn't know the difference between lowers if they were not marked lol.
    I got a mystery box for a complete 300 BLK and it has an AM lower. Awesome deal.

    Beggars can’t be choosers, be lucky if you got one. Not like we didn’t get warning ahead of time.

    I got 6 lowers a year ago, and transferred them all to people that didn’t have a registered AR

    First, thank you TNA!

    For those who are possibly unhappy with their purchase, maybe this could change your mind.

    In the event these receiver sets ended up being NEA/BLC :

    1. Cheap insurance! You're getting grandfathered for 170$! From there, you could just skip reading #2,3,4 and be happy.
    2. 170$ for a receiver set is pretty cheap even for NEA/BCL.
    3. NEA/BLC stuff may not be top shelf, but it's definitely decent. I own 3 of these and never had an issue.
    4. NEA/BLC stuff is cerakoted. TNA advertised "Mil-spec hard black anodized" sets so the Mystery Box is either not NEA/BLC or it's NEA/BCL raw sets that were anodized (better than the usual cerakoted stuff if you ask me).

    Once again, thank you TNA!

    If thats the case i will grab a set!
    NEA uppers work, just expect to do some hand fitting with a dremel, lol. Also don't use any type of non gun solvent to clean them...I made the mistake of using brake cleaner to degrease a really dirty AR and it stripped the finish right off my NEA upper, down to the bare aluminium.
    When I die, don't let my girlfriend sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them.
