    this always happens to me, i just ordered the $465 mid length kit from del ton before seeing this....

    all the reading i've done on these builds here, couldn't help myself and i had to just dive in.......

    those are cheaper lowers than the $125 ones at rguns tho.

    Mack, If you would have bought the $275 upper listed above and then got the bolt, carrier, charging handle and lower parts kit from Delton you would have only saved about 8 bucks. So I'd say you still done pretty good.

    ah... that is true, tho i thought that $275 included a chrome barrel, where my kit had the chrome barrel option for an extra $45...

    my thoughts were to get the cheapest basic kit i could, since i could always add a chrome barrel later....or make it part of a next project.

    but that $60 lower...even with shipping and a lets say $50 ffl transfer fee...is under the $125 plus tax, transfer fee n shipping on the other lower i was looking at...(@ Rguns, they're in IL so I was looking to see if they can sell to me direct and avoid the additional FFL tranfer fee for a mail order)

    definitely appreciate how the FTF crew here is like a bucket brigade of know how:D

    I picked up one of their nitride uppers for $275 a while back and it was a great deal I thought. :D

    Got the mid-length fluted upper last week. Super fit & finish with the PWA lower I'll use it on. Too darn cold to shoot it yet, but man does it look GOOD!!
