Regardless, they don't manufacturer them in-house just like us, and BCM, and Palmetto, and (insert most AR15 companies name here). Their hands are tied based on the machining companies manufacturing schedule. That's not to say they are always the best at supply chain management, but much of it is out of their hands. Our machining "timelines" we get from manufacturers sometimes vary from 2-16 weeks, even buying directly from the manufacturer who machines the product.

BCG shortgages:

DEMAND is high, people are building MORE AR15's, and some people like to have a spare as well.

There has been a recent move in recent years to sell complete uppers without BCG's (Palmetto, for instance) to offer customers a lower price point. However, then customers need to source a BCG in a crazy market to complete a build. Most of the BCG buyers I don't think are building them from a stripped upper, but I could be mistaken. Bolts are parts that wear out and fail eventually. It doesn't hurt to have an extra around.

The Supply of BCGs is always a constant curve. Manufacturers are not delaying shipments to hose customers. What they ARE doing is whording BCG's, LPK's, etc to continue to be able to build rifles and complete uppers. They won't want to release hard to get $100 parts and be stuck not able to build a $600 or $1000 assembly. That's understandable, right? However, that can cause builders to have a harder time to find parts.

Machine shops making bolts have (X) hours of machine time in a day. That's a fixed number. They're not going to spend upwards of a million dollars buying a brand new high dollar machine (which can take months to receive anyways) to make more bolts and hire new staffing for a temporary surge in demand. Otherwise, they'll be left holding the bag in a tight economy. Until the demand curve levels out, the supply is going to be tight.

We have thousands of bolts on order at any given time...and still can barely keep them in stock. It's ridiculous, but it is what it is right now. Consumers are driving the prices up, and availability so scarce.
I agree completely, the reason i started building when I did was I was afraid something like this might happen.

We are only hurting ourselves with this buying frenzy, heck a $375 AK costs $600 now and we did it.

With or without logo? I never heard anyone selling DD BCGs (with logo) for so long. So if those BCGs are without logo, i will ask them questions if i were you. Cos all i know the ones without logo are old productions.

EDIT: I meant $169, not 179.

It's the one with the 'DD' logo, part #9300. Full auto, shot peened bolt,
extractor booster, HPT, MPI, chrome lined carrier and key

They have, and I quote: "A gazillion of 'em in stock", they had 6 there in plain view in the case. Place is well known for it's love of Daniel defense.

I purchased a Vortex Strikefire recently and it included extra-high 30mm ring to put the scope's bore center at 37 mm above the base height was wondering what mount would i need for a Primary Arms 3x Magnifier?

My point was that there is absolutely no logical reason why someone can't buy one without an obscene amount of effort and the luck to be in the right place at the right time.
Call classic arms and archery in Lexington ky, then call Evans firearms and archery in Lexington ky. Last week both had them in stock. Not sure of the brand.

And here is the perfect compliment to the UCWRG lower...




My next shipment of UCWRG grips should be here by Wednesday, so the above combo should be available by then as well! They have a lot of products in the pipeline, so if you have not checked out their Facebook page yet, give them a visit...http://www.facebook.com/UCWRG
