If you want the US made version of the 6.5" it's the Yost 865-DI and nearly $200.

Is the bv-4 worth double the price of the lv-4?
I need a vice to work on AR lowers and uppers and I can't risk the jaws letting loose or breaking. Can anyone suggest the lowest price vice that I should reasonably consider? TIA

When I put AR lowers together I have my brother hold the lower with his hand. I doubt the grip on the this is weaker than my brother's grip. We should be fine using these vises.

The one for $16.83 is showing an extra 15% off coupon on my end. That's a really good deal if you ask me, no??

The 445 model is showing a $15 coupon additional off. $32.32 after coupon. Not bad.

So you think I should be good with the $16 one? I am more concerned about putting uppers together and having that long weight and tightening the barrel nut than I am concerned about it being able to handle holding a lower while I assemble it. I have a Magpul Bev block for doing my uppers.

If all you'll be doing is putting lowers together yes the$16 should be fine. If you're going to start hammering other heavy duty things down the road, remember it's only $16.

No joke, I put a lower together this Saturday and my brother held the lower while I hammered the bolt release. Remember to buy grips as well so the finish on your guns don't get scratched.

I guess it is only 16 bones and if it ends up not working out on the uppers for me I can just use it for the lowers and other light duty stuff. Thanks for the responses and the heads up on the covers, 'preciate it.

edit: I am thinking there's no use getting the bv-4 at double the price of the lv-4. The lv-4 should be able to accommodate a lower vice block and the BEV block, eh?

As a small time AR manufacturer, I've used several vices when putting my ARs together for customers. This will work just fine, even when you're torquing past 75ft/lb for the barrel nut which is the highest end needed. I do most of mine on a harbor freight 3" vice and it's no problem. This will work fine, especially if you're using an upper vice block.

So I should be G2G with the $16 one in your opinion?

Yes. You should definitely break your upper vice made of plastic before you break the teeth of this metal vice.
