Yikes sounds like that's trouble waiting to happen...ill talk to them on Monday about putting on an upper for me. Only problem is they don't sell uppers there so ill have to order one which just means more time that I don't have this rifle....what a mess.

so a no go on them slapping an upper on it? Chalk it up ... go find another LGS, walk through step by step what is required for an AR purchase. It may be that you will have to wait to do a build until you turn 21.

But there is nothing preventing you from buying a complete rifle and adapting the ****e out of it to suit your needs for now

They charged a storage fee of $10 per day and no stores around me sell them, so I would have to wait for shipping which would get expensive quick. I probably will buy a complete rifle and definitely not get it shipped to those bastards!!
Thanks for all the help dog

You have to be 21.
