    Fuckers claimed that there was an increase in materials or some shit and jacked up prices by $50 or so.

    I guess demand has significantly lowered and they're stuck with excess inventory. :rofl: motherfuckers

    $89.95 for a fucking stripped lower.

    I wonder if they're still THUG serial numbers.

    I'd rather have a FAG walther.

    Fuck them Fuck Them FUCK THEM.

    Remember when they were selling delux wooden crates so you could buy 10 of their overpriced stripped lowers at once? What a bunch of douche nozzles!!!

    Unfortunately, they have a strong following at Arfcom because they make gimmicky retarded bullshit. Dumb products by mall ninjas for mall ninjas.

    If people were tactical-elite-fighter mall ninjas like me, they'd only buy from either value brands (Stag/CMT, RRA) or proven brands (BCM, LMT, Colt, Noveske etc). Of course, when the people on Arfcom with fucking brains chime in to speak the truth that Spike's Tactical SUCKS, a bunch of assholes who've bought nothing but generic "anyone can make this" bullshit from them come rushing to their defense.

    I really, really, really don't see the value proposition offered by Spikes in their unique products. They should go back to being "just another" retailer instead of trying to become a manufacturer, because their business ethos is balls, and their products are cocks.

    ETA: A lower is a lower is a lower. I wouldn't judge someone for buying one of their lowers, but i'm voting with my wallet. I don't forget when people have tried to fuck over the community, and as a member of the community, i believe in supporting businesses that don't actively try to fuck the consumer.

    $10 for a stock image, $20 for customer supplied image.

    Still WAY worth the cost.

    The funny thing is this kind of shit happens all the time in every industry. It's kind of sad that some sandy vagina has to air his dirty laundry on a public forum.
