I've only bought a PSA LBK since December, during their 12 Days of Christmas sale. It arrived within 21 days so I was lucky.

From what I've seen BCGs are the toughest major part to find though there are shortages everywhere. Very bad time to be doing a build unless you settle for lesser parts. I'm glad I finished two builds last year before the madness began.

15" handguards are really hard to find right now. Samson, MI, Troy, Geissele, Noveske etc. etc.

Been looking for over a month, just found one last nite.

Now that is scary!

Can you imagine having to wait three+ months for an AR and have it end up a Vulcan! Ugh.

I have a buddy that has picked up 60 new BCGs in the last 4 weeks , He is a sponsored shooter and this yr for his sponsorship he requested BCGs instead of them picking up hotel tabs , meals etc. , saved them money and is making him money . too bad I cant get one for less than $250 from him . but they are beauties for sure , they look just like the deep black BCM BCGs without the BCM engraving on them .
