    And more available. I was pleasantly surprised to see stripped lowers on sale for $120ish and full built ARs starting around $750 NIB. Hopefully this trend will continue onto ammo. :hs:

    For some perspective, last time I was at this particular gun show, maybe February - stripped lowers were all $250+ (and I laughed - this was at the time EA got a bunch in and was selling them cheap, IIRC) and you couldn't get a new AR out of there for less than $1000. Even the used ARs were $800+.

    AIM has a bunch of lowers in stock now too, prices range depending on manufacturer. Double Star's are $109, not bad. Now the ammo supply needs to come back, I hit Walmart today....still nothing. :wtc:

    That would be fine with me. Once they reach $60, I'll probably pick one up just for the hell of it.

    Out of my mind, brb never.
    You think thats bad? At the local fun show that I went to a few weeks back, I saw some no name stripped lowers for $475. And when I say stripped, I mean STRIPPED to the bone. :ugh:

    I don't think there's anyone here who doesn't know what a stripped lower is.

    I just saw them in stock (online) for $89 - like I said, I'll wait til they hit $60 online and then buy one.
