I got my barrel from BCM a few days ago. They only had 2 types in stock though. A 14.5" LW (which is what I got) and a 14.5" Govt profile or something. $240 bucks. I also got my flash hider and gas block from them as well

Yeah I just made my own stripped lower, and all I have is a hand guard and a pistol grip

Gentleman,

I have managed to build my AR pistol with parts I've found over the last 3 weeks. Some online and some locally. If you looking for a upper and a few other parts try Mooneysfirearms. I just got a Scorpion Tactical stripped upper for $130. AR Depot had parts kits, barrels. If you need to get a barrel, you can also try Rohg Industries. I've become a master at digging stuff up. I did 4 builds in the last 9 weeks this way. All the parts are US made and milspec. It seems like I spent 2-3 hours a day digging. This what I've found for now. I just picked CMMG LPK's for $89 at Faith Armory. The stuff is hard to find, but it's still out there. There are a few companies that are still not trying to rape us or keep us on back order until our next birthdays.

I'll check them out but I really want either a Noveske or VLTOR upper.

Wild thought, get onto the Noveske website and check out the dealers list page. Then get out your cellphone and start dialing, there are tons of mom and pop shops that don't list their inventories online. At least that's my best WAG....

The only dealer in MA is in a town that I have never heard of.

I think I'll wait a little while and take the chances and hopefully the buying craze will go down a little, and in worse case scenario- ban hits I still have the lower.

As long as you have the lower you're in good shape, hopefully.
