If desperate I'd take Spikes over Del-Ton. Off the rack you're more likely with Spikes to get a milspec rifle. Though DTI says they can build you a milspec version I wonder what ends up in the LGS.

Unfortunately, some see these as desparate times. Get what you can, and you can add or change what you want later.

The largest retailer in the world also sells sporting goods, Wal-Mart.

Yes, many Wal-Mart's sell evil black guns.

Most Wal-Mart's sell a 6920 Colt M4 about twice a month as of late. Few are coming in, because so many of us are buying them, the distributors are sold out. But because of their buying power, more are squeaking through their doors, than anywhere else.

Want a Colt? Make friends with the sporting goods manager at Wal-Mart, and be in his department as he opens the gun locker in the back, and stocks shelves. This is typically at 7am. If you don't piss him off (not an easy task, being under feet daily), in a couple weeks, you will have a new Colt for $1097.97 in most stores. Great deal in this turmoil.

Is a mil spec AR really better as a semi auto? Most people would never know the difference. However, when a mil spec is the only riffles you can find anyway, stamped Colt, and the price is great, all indicators point to getting one.

If you want to get going on an AR right now (rather than hoping things settle down in a few months), you're going to have a hard time beating the cost and quality of a PSA build.

They're putting new stuff up everyday, and it's the sort of situation where you just have to check the website's front page a few times a day. But they've been consistently listing barreled uppers for $375-500, lower build kits(with various stock assemblies) for $129-199, etc.

I was already a PSA fan and customer before the recent hysteria. But the fact that they've done their part to keep pushing all the products out that they can, without jacking all the prices has made an impression. They'll be my #1 option going forward. And they've always offered tremendous quality for the $.
