Hmmm. Can you provide a link? If I could bag one for that price I would go for it. It would be sort of cool to have one from my home town.

This makes me tempted to list my complete Noveske lower for somewhere north of a grand and see what happens. I'm thinking I have a 50/50 shot of a ban, either way a year ago I wasn't even thinking of an AR, maybe I could triple my money??? What do you guys think, gen 1 Noveske lower, DD LPK, CTR stock and stock kit from Bravo Company, it's gotta be worth at least $1500..... to a sucker....

All I gotta say is that if things go the way the Frankenstein is proposing it is going to open up one Hell of a black market in black guns! At that point it would hardly make sense for anyone to follow any of the 20,000 gun laws on the books!

Have a buddy searching for a lower, that's not 10mil. Best a luck.

Yeah, that is an 80% lower, the ones I looked at today were machined and complete except for the anodizing.

BTW, what was an 80% lower going for a month ago?

All my local shops (Northern AZ) are out of anything interesting. Looks like all of the employees are selling their own personal firearms on consignment as well.

I ended up with a few gift cards for Cabelas (Peoria (Phoenix)) and call them every morning to see if they have any AR's in. They keep telling me no, but they are expecting their next shipment (12ea) any day now. However, a salesman told me this morning, that even if they came in, and I called to check, that by the time I made the 1.5 hr drive down to the valley, he doubts that anything would be left on the shelf. That's how fast they are selling.

I can agree with Mike. I was at Wally world today in Derby and their shelves were pretty empty. Did pick up a box of .40.
