    Probably a bit too late, but I just came into some money and I want to build my own AR.

    I know there were a lot of good deals on the web but they all seem to be sold out and the only stripped lowers I found were somewhere along the lines of $300....

    any help as to where I can find some decent deals?

    Fear of a possible AWB coming have people buying up everything and in a hurry. Every time I see something available it's gone before I can act.

    I have a stripped stag lower I may consider selling if the price is right.

    well, considering this will be a piecemeal type of build, the most I was looking to spend on the lower was ~$150

    I know if I wait I can get decent lowers for $90-120....so I'm hesitant to buy anything during the AWB scare...

    Or you may be screwed. If the ban does pass, chances are you won't be able to get one through a FFL. I have two lowers and I thought about selling one but I don't want to gouge somebody, but at the same time I deserve a profit for getting ahead of the curve. Good luck. I hope you find one for a decent price.

    Panic buying has made the prices go from $80-$150(depending on manufacturer) to $250-$500 depending on the person you're buying from. A local guys has two RRA's for $275 each, you could get em' for around $125 before all this crap started. It's really sad to see firearms owners taking advantage of each other like this but I guess they're selling at what the market will bare.

    I bought a lower for $99 a month before the shooting. I got a second lower for $109 two days before the shooting and the gun shop had 12 left. I scrounged and bought another $109 lower the day after the shooting and the shop had 4 left. I doubt they have any left now.
    I have now sold them all for a tidy profit. Yep, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Here's one from the gun show today. They got an ear full from me when I saw it. Along with the people selling PMags for 75-100 depending on if they're 20 rounds or 30..
