    Ok so I bought a upper from them and they sent a tracking number. A few hours later I got another for a different number the first weighted at 5.9 lbs the next weighted 1.5 lbs does any one know what the other could be? And I didn't order anything else.

    I order stuff from them pretty often. I usually get a tracking number within the hour before my order is even shipped. Then I get another email once Fedex picks up the package from them. Regarding the weight, I have no clue. Give them a call, their customer service has always been great for me.

    As a guess, I'd wager you get the upper in the first package, and the BCG and Charging Handle in the other.

    That's what I was thinking. Wonder why they would do it like that.

    A barrel is useless without a BCG and charging handle. Likewise, the opposite is true. You don't lose both at once.

    You paid for it, so they don't care.

    CTD sometimes orders direct from their distributors or the manufacturers and it's possible that the upper they ordered didn't have the BCG/Handle so it was necessary to order those from another source.

    If someone is willing to pony up the overnight fees, it can be done, but I'm just not willing to pay them 50 or so extra dollars just to get it tomorrow.

    CTD is one of the major drop-shippers, so your order may have come from different distributors that they use.
