Feel better. or they seem to be nice folks has nothing to do with proper business practice. I would call and cancel the order. Contact your credit card company and tell them you do not want your card charged. Tell them the facts. This is BS!

Yup. Mike is the guy that refunded my order. If I ever end up doing an 80% lower, though, I will be using a milling machine at work.....NOT a drill press.

Guys, here is the scoop. My best friend lives in Utah and ordered 5 of then in December. They have been telling him soon, soon,soon, oh we're waiting on jigs....ect...ect. I live 45 minutes away from them. My friend is down for the week and we went in the store. They had shelves full of 80%ers. They were billet for $160, and not the forgings. We made them trade out the 5 forged for three billets and a $95 in gear off of the shelves. They claim they have 17,000 lowers coming in. I don't buy that! But I you want you lowers, call them and tell the to upgrade you to the billets.

And while we were in there dealing with our back order , 4 customers came in to complain , and one canceled his order due to lack of communication alone. The kid working there was good guy but I think the entire company is lost in the sauce.

Why would anyone expect a small shop to have any lowers in stock in the current political situation ? Even Cabalas and Gander Mountain were totally out of AR-15's for weeks on end, and they still have no ammunition.

Ares is probably at the mercy of their suppliers backorder list for un-machined raw lower forgings.

Exchange 80% lower for AR-15 magazine of any type, or AR-15 Bolt Carrier Group, and you find the exact same issues. I waited nearly 3 months for GI AR magazines from Brownell's, and for Pmags from Ruger and neither of them can be described as small shops.

The difference is that Ares takes your money up front, and does not communicate with you for months.They know the damn climate! Why would they continue to take orders knowing that they are clueless about when hey will get it. Then their operation of selling jigs and having a shop for people to come mill gets shut down for being shady.... again! Their business practices are not ethical and I know of at least 10 people canceling their orders due to how they have been bent over and lied to. I get the climate when it comes to anything to do with weapons, but at least the reputable companies are not ignoring you for 6 months after they have taken your money!

^^^EXACTLY.

Now, currently, I know where to get AR's, & ammo and mags for them. LGS has AR"s coming in by the pallet. They also as of last Sunday had unlimited 5.56, albeit at 60 cents a round. I have also gotten AR mags at something like $15, at some point after this whole thing started.
That is also part of the reason I cancelled. I bought an AR, so no need to build one, at least right now.....
