    There's an Armalite lower at my local gun store for like $105 that I've been eyeballing.

    I have no use for an AR though.

    you'll have no use for an AR until they ban them. buy it, if only to resell at a later date.

    for 100 bucks I'd go with this (they've been on sale for 100 for months and months)

    http://www.anvilarms.com/pc-36-19-stripped-lower-receiver.aspx

    free laser engraving and if you send them an image if a format they can use they will do custom as well as what they have in stock as well. Try getting a quote as to what custom laser engraving will cost from spike.

    I already have an AK, and 5.56 is too expensive anyway. Besides, I need a decent sidearm.

    You have a bad experience with them?

    I can't say it was a perfect transaction for me, Jon seems a good bit disorganized, they seem to have a QC problem with their supplier and UPS lost my lower for like a week and a half.

    However once I got it, everything is in spec works properly and the laser engraving looks good.

    I noticed they have several FFL's listed near me. Probably charge $25 or so. I guess I could just wait until the next gun show and try and get an LMT. Knowing my luck they won't even carry lowers. :wtc:

    ANy way to find out when a gun show will be in my area?

    I did, perhaps I'll write it up in a while. There's another guy on THR who had a similar experience. I think the lower is fine but their service is the suck + a billionty.

    Can an out of state resident purchase long guns in FL? I know here in TN they can, but just checking... My girlfriends grandparents live like 30 minutes from spikes, so if I'm down there this summer I'm going to pick a few more up :o

    I have a spikes bullet marked lower now that I fucking love. I want to build my next rifle on one as well (SBR).
