Been a member for a little while now but never introduced myself. Happy to be a part of such a great community. My names Ted. Active outdoorsman and avid shooter. Hope to learn a lot from you all!
With my introduction I have a question for all you regulars. I have been wanting to build my own AR for some time now except I waited to long and due to the panic stocks are diminished, prices are high, and selection is gone. Considering when I first had the idea to build I could have purchased a Spikes lower for under $200 and now they are around $500 the question I have is should I wait? Do you feel it will settle down and go back to how it was 2 months ago?

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I'm loving the topics and discussions on here. I wont riddle the introduction forum with questions regarding my AR build. I was just curious of your quick thoughts whether to wait or start buying atleast the smaller parts now and wait for the larger parts (i.e. lower/upper receiver and barrel) to drop in price.
Thanks again all. OH, and a Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone!

Wait.

If you can't wait, buy a stripped lower. Once you have the receiver, you have the gun and can take the time to build it out.

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING other than the S/N'd receiver (lower) can be shipped directly to your door. If you care to speculate, buy two!
