    Bad time to try to find bargains on anything AR related.

    I know, I picked the worst time to build a lower receiver and not have the parts to finish the gun:(

    I was going to order a lpk from RRA as they are still taking orders and the price isn't horrible but they stopped giving any lead times on orders so that tells me that if I put in the order I will be waiting awhile to receive the parts

    I think the hardest parts to get will be the bolt carrier and upper

    Looked on their website, I'm looking for something more tactical, I may just wait till the buying craze comes down a little and check back online

    I'm in the same boat. I got a complete lower sitting around and there isn't anything to be had to complete it right now, at least not at a pricepoint i'd pay

    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

    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.
