Fit and finish are solid. It's a clean look without a bunch of text printed everywhere on it, good piece for engraving. The tolerances are all good, but the magwell is a little on the tight side, felt best with my lancer mags.

Bought this stripped lower for a budget build. I am seriously considering making this my primary go too. Highly recommend this lower. Fit and finish was superb. And not a single flaw in the geometry of this.

This is only a first impression, as I’m waiting on a few more parts, but This is a solid lower. Markings are very subtle which is hard to find. I would have picked up more when they were on sale but I wanted to see it in person before I ordered more.
<br>Will buy again assuming build goes smooth.
Good lower, but the magwell tolerances seem to be off. It is very noticeable with aluminum/steel mags as you have to literally pull them out. When it comes to polymer mags like PMAGs (Gen M2 MOE's to be exact), the magwell does not have any problems. Another review stated Lancer Mags worked best for them, but for me they were also a little tight (not as tight as complete bodied aluminum/steel mags). Giving three stars because 90% of my mags are GEN M2 PMAGs so its not too much of an issue, but be weary of this product before purchasing. Not a good look at all having to yank your mag out under possible extreme conditions.
A new standard!
I'm several lowers deep with Orchid and am happy to have another company out there who likes it tight! Other than my KAC lowers, these are an absolute go to!!! Hats off to this little Vegas company, that's kicking ass where it counts and Primary for offering them! You will not be disappointed with this lower!!
DO NOT BUY

The fit and finish on the lower is great, the issue is the magwell is out of spec. The magwell measures 0.015 tighter than any of my other lowers with a set of calibers. None of my metal magazines will fit in this lower. Most brands of polymer magazines are a tight fit and do not drop free. I emailed the listed address on the Orchid Defense website regarding the issue, and have yet to get a response in the past three weeks. The great fit and finish is worthless with the out of spec magwell. Buy any other lower.
<br>Thank you for getting back to us on this. Please ley us know if we may help you with anything else.
Was skeptical about magwell tightness, not anymore

I read another review about the tight mag well, didn't want to purchase it at first. Price was too low to pass out. I ended up getting three and are very satisfied with my purchase. I have all different types of magazines. From Magpul M2 and M3, aluminum, steel. They all drop freely.

For the money, you can't beat this lower receiver. Money well spent.
