    But I'm gonna attempt to do it anyways. :noes:

    Something tells me I'm going to really get raped.
     
  2. You just have to look around for parts. I ordered a spare M16 bolt carrier group from CMMG last week, and they just charged my card. Hopefully that means they're shipping it soon.

    As with most anything gun-related at the moment, it's extremely up in the air.

    Just find someone that is selling a set-up similar to what you want and piece it together exactly how you want it. If you're going to build your own you are going to be waiting forever to get parts and probably get raped w/ over priced shit.

    You're looking at a minimum 20 week wait though from Stag. I was told 8 weeks when I ordered back in november and still no word from them and it's been like 10-11 weeks now. I PMed the guy that set up the deal and he said they were still working on early november orders.

    incorrect. The wrong time would be AFTER the ban.

    My order went into Stag on 11/13 by Pete. I got it a few weeks into Jan. I was told 5 to 7 weeks then.

    Found the deal in the EE.. title says everything less stripped lower for $609/shipped.. then I read down through it and get to the part about the LPK and it looks like its $788/shipped if you want the LPK too.

    Anyone have a clue?

    My sentiments exactly. I'm hoping I overlooked something and that price includes some type of extra that I'm not immediately seeing.

    $609/shipped for everything minus a stripped lower is a deal.

    It isn't too bad if you frequent local forums and watch some of the major retailers. I've been able to pick up another upper and piece together three complete lowers over the last two months.

    no, the LPK is included for the $609, the $788 is for a 2ht upper which has a samson rail.

    it is not $180 for a LPK.
