    So I have the following ordered from ar15-kits.com

    Overview
    22 Jan 09 - 19:56 Purchase price: US$628.00
    Shipping : US$20.00
    Total: US$648.00Options
    Barrel Options: Chrome Lined (US$51.00)
    Upper Receiver Config: A-3 Flat top w/ Detatchable Carry Handle, Catalog
    number: AR783b (US$81.50)
    Front Sight / Gas Blocks:
    AR-15 A-2 Standard Front Sight post
    Pistol Grip Options: Standard A-2 Pistol Grip
    Trigger Group Options: Standard Trigger

    Flash hider / Muzzle brake: A-2 standard
    Charging Handle: Standard handle with Latch
    Rear sight options: A-2 Upper with sights or No rear sight on Flat top A-3


    Now I realize there is a large amount of people buying Ar's now, but through emails I haven't gotten a straight response about the wait time for the delivery. They say they will bill me when they get the order in so they can ship it. I realize it's not even a month yet, but without any estimation of when this will happen, what would you do (if you can't get any kind of estimation)? I'd be fine with an 8 week total wait time, but yeah no response like that so far.

    Simply cancel, and order from another website
    or
    Cancel and look at picking things up at a local gunshow (at a higher price most likely, this is CA :wtc:)
    or
    Wait for the order

    I have my lower already, it's just killing me waiting :noes::noes::noes::noes:

    the only people that know their ship times are the companies that have stuff in stock or make their own products. M&A had the m4 kit i wanted in stock so i'm good there. for my 9mm upper i'm just going to go with ar15.com ee.

    I see lots of uppers come and go at the 3 gun matches. Might be more money but better upper of course.

    Several Saber defense 18" uppers fresh off prize tables. Seems going price is around $800-$900. Another guy has 2 built up 16" rifle lenght gas system uppers which is kind of on the unusual side. they both had trijicon accupoints on them. Think he wanted $1600 each.

    Most of you guys are on the frugal side so ibtoomuch$$$

    .


    Buddy just ordered a complete M4 kit from them ... they said two weeks for delivery. That's not bad at all when the Stag kits from Pete on arfcom are still months away.

    M&A apparently does have most stuff in stock. I ordered a complete barrel assembly on Tues... received a notification from UPS that it will be delivered today :cool:
