Default Any good ar lower in stock?

Hey guys

I am looking for a good quality AR 15 lower around retail price. Been trying like crazy to get a Mega forged or billet lower but no luck. Called the dealers on their site and them directly. Finally I placed an order but likely too late.

Thx
Mike

Stripped lower? I would call every LGS in the phone book to see what's local and how much. Online you have to compete with everyone, locally you just might trip over something in stock.

Thanks Quentin!

Yeah, I called all of the mega dealers today but looks like I have to broaden my search. Heading to a gun show this weekend in palmetto to try my luck there.

Thx
Mike

I got lucky a couple weeks ago watching the deals deals deals thread and scored a complete lower for about $200 after shipping and FFL fees. You just have to be constantly on the watch.
