a high end upper on a cheap lower?

I don't build AR's but a guy at work and me had a conversation today about him doing a build..he wants a high end upper like DD or bravo and wants to put it on a PSA..i guess his thoughts are that since most of the important moveing parts are in the upper that he can save money this way..

he just wants this as a range toy so having a flared magwell isn't important as he doesn't plan for tacticool quick reloads..so is his thinking flawed.????

The low end and high end stuff is exactly the same for all practical purposes and probably comes from the same factory. Most of the "AR guys" couldn't tell you the difference. I use low end uppers and lower. No difference.

PSA lowers are made by Aero Precision, so unless they do any funky finishing on them they should be dimensionally similar to Aero and also Surplus Arms and Ammo receivers.

I have a DDM4 V5 upper on an NFA billet lower with a Giessele SSA-E trigger. So high end upper, mid end lower, high end trigger.
