I just got an email from Delton on a query I sent about complete AR with stripped lowers. They said that Delton does not ship lowers to CA unless its ordered by an FFL dealer.

Does anyone know if any of our local vendor sponsors would do this on behalf of a calguns member?

yeah but are they in stock?
I ordered my upper from them and it didn't ship out for 3 weeks
and that was long before any surge in sales

And who's going to transfer it at a cost that will keep the price below what you'd pay for a lower in stock at the CA FFL?

This is also what I'm thinking about.

Good rule of thumb for times like these, if you must have a lower now.....go to the store, if there is actually a lower for sale that you can touch and see with your own eyes, buy it.

My experiences with DelTon have been awesome. Their Shipping has been slow lately, from what i was told they don't stock complete uppers/rifle kits. They build them as they are fulfilling the orders. This is why their prices are so affordable, but also explains why their shipping is so backed up right now. As for the issue of them not shipping to California, I was not aware of this and that definitely puts a damper on my plans because I was about ready to order about 3-5 of these lowers... Let me know how this works out, if you find an affordable way to get them into California I would definitely be interested.
