For cosmetic reason only, I am one of those that like upper and lower brands to match.. Would forged upper blend with a billet lower? Brand in question is a Seekins

Dang! I sure hope so!

I was gonna go as cheap as I could find but ended up finding a good deal on a Midwest billet upper for my plane, Jane yhm forged lower. I assumed it would mate up.

The finish will proabably be a little off. Can always get it painted.

Even if it's forged upper and lower from different brands it will be slightly mismatched, same goes for milled. Colors won't be perfect either

If you're gonna build, at least build a matched set. Billet sets match up perfectly.

Well some of us like our weapons like we like our women and chicken, with just a little bit of fat on the end.

I would mix two forged together but not with milled and I would not mix 2 milled together. If you are going to spend the money on milled you might as well get a matched set.
