Don't think they'll be sending any of these directly to California given the 30 round PMAGs and such...

Given I've seen local dealers asking $3200 for N4 Light Basic's, this almost seems like a steal.

Specs:

16.1" Cold Hammer Forged Barrel, 1 in 7" twist, 5.56mm
末Made of Mil Spec M249 Machine Gun barrel steel, with heavy M249 Chrome Lining,
(appx. 2 times as thick as an M4 or M16)
末Extended Feed Ramps
末Mil Spec Phosphate finish
末MP HP tested
末Mid-Length gas system, no M203 notch
末Shot peened and MP tested bolt
末Properly staked carrier key
末Auto carrier
末H Buffer
末MAGPUL UBR buttstock
末MAGPUL MIAD grip
末Ambi magazine catch
末Ambi bolt release
末Forged Vltor MUR upper receiver featuring an anti-rotation interface with the handguard
末11" free floated handguard w/ 1913 rails
末Low-profile gas block pinned to barrel
末Flip-up front and rear sights
末AAC Blackout non-mount flash suppressor
末Four MAGPUL P-MAG 30rd mags included, black non-window
末V-TAC padded black sling
末QD Sling Swivels
末MAGPUL XTM rail panels, 5 packages
末Eagle LE Discreet Soft Case

Thoughts?

See this thread.

I e-mailed Noveske to see if they will ship to CA. I'll post if and when they respond.

You could always send it to Freakshow as a middleman FFL, and he could install a BB.

It took them over 2 weeks to respond to my email last month about N6 uppers. They are running way behind.

Good Advice....

The whole package seems off.

*No VIS
*rail length choice
*UBR choice
*Trigger
*Non-mountable Blackout
It looks like between the two vendors they took whatever parts they had in stock and threw them together.


Not for me....It takes more than an lower made of unobtanium to get me excited.

You have to admit though that the lower is mighty awesome looking!

This is going fast. The count went from 20 to 16 in 20 minutes. I tried to call if they will ship to Cal and phone was tied up. Not that I have 3k with me right now but I would rather spend my money on SCAR or ACR next year.

Got a reply from Sheri @ Noveske.

My e-mail: SUBJECT: MPL Light Recce "Will you ship this package to CA if I have an FFL that will recieve it?"

Sheri's Response: "We do not ship to CA for anyone except for L/E with a department letterhead."

Sounds cut & dried to me.

If panic buying has taught anyone anything its...

If an item availability is updated in real-time, forget calling.

If they have an issue with a Cal resident buying this, Noveske will either call you or not ship it. Find an FFL later.

But at least you have a place in line...

ETA: Freakshow come in! Freakshow this is Calguns over!

If you're in CA, they wouldn't sell to you anyway. You would have to go through a 3rd party out of state.

Indeed, I was going to call LANWorld or FreakShow to see what we could do. I just really thought I'd have a day or three. Wrrrrroooonnnng...

Lets say you had someone acquire one of these for you out-of-state...

Aside from the obvious inability to transfer in the 30 round mags, do I simply need to replace the magazine release feature in some way? With the ambi release on the magpull, what would be the best thing to use? The b-16's look like they could be nice, assuming I can put them on both sides.

Disassemble the mag catch and button, replace with a standard catch and your choice of lock.

it's great how noveske passed up people who have had that upper on backorder for a long while so they can make a quick buck from team gucchi.

i would never buy a noveske as they are way over priced but i will put them on my never deal with list anyway.

nice to see companies like BCM who don't screw their customers.

Manufactures....includes all STAG/RRA...will always build rifles first and than fill uppers...etc.

BCM isn't a FFL/SOT...they just sell parts.....

Noveske had no issues shipping the rifle to CA....As long as the FFl accepted the rifle per Noveske mfg.
