kind of curious to see how much people have been buying? just picked up my 5th one on sat. and well i just started stocking up right before christmas but i think im done. so far i've picked up:

2-sun devil
1-kaiser defense
1-spikes
1-noveske n4

and at the begining of 2008 i had picked up a JP complete lower off another member which is my only complete rifle at the moment. the spikes will go bye bye in a few weeks, i picked it up cause my friend is broke and im hanging on to it till he has the funds and am going to sell it for exactly what im in to it for.

just was curious because i had another member tell me he had an offer to trade his rifle for 9 lowers or something ridiculous and got to thinking WOW some people have REALLY stocked up!

Surprisingly, only one.

I have an 20" A4 build on a lower with an A1 stock that I use for long range shooting and marksmanship.

A long time ago I considered having at least three different AR configurations. The aforementioned 20", a 223 carbine for run and gun, and a 6.8 because it was "the thing" to have at the time.

I've completely lost interest in the 6.8SPC and 7.62x39 now. But I'm still considering the M4 clone for carbine competitions.

Hey Impactco, do you own the entire POF 308 rifle or just the lower? and sorry to hijack thread, but if you do have entire POF, how do you like it, is it as accurate as they say. . I have one ordered and suppose to come this month.. Just curious if it was worth the $$$$

Only received 3 though and it looks like the Doublestars aren't going to be arriving anytime soon.

Guess I need to buy a couple more in case some of my ordered uppers actually ship.

Bought 2 stripped Ameetecs in 02/2005.

Sold stripped Grizzly late 2007.
Sold stripped Ameetec before election.
Sold Ameetec complete build with BB before election.

Bought and built Noveske N6 before election.

I picked these up at J&J's last sale, I remember them having a few cases of lowers. I saw guys getting 4,6 even 10, What they didnt have in store the next shipment was a week away!

Damn I am kicking myself!

3 lowers. Actually 2 of the lower are complete rifles and 1 is a chunk of aluminum. Both are post '94 ban without bayo lugs and flash hiders. I don't need a bayo, it you need to stick somebody, you're doing it wrong!! First is a 20" Armalite, 2nd is a 16" Bushmaster. Yes they are registered, both can take all of the grandfathered fully loaded 30 rounders I have, no bullet button needed. The 3rd is a raw forging but I also have a book that shows how to make a functional lower using hand tools including a belt sander!

I was at J&R Sports yesterday picking up my Grizzly lower and they mentioned that they have 20 lowers left. I'm pretty sure that they are Double Star.

I picked up 3 Kaiser Defense stripped lowers on election day, three more about a week later, and a Noveske N6 .308 lower about a month after the election at a gun show. I paid through the nose (bend over and... price!) for the Noveske, but I'm glad it's in the safe.

I also got 4 AR-15 style uppers 2 right before and 2 right after the election, and five AR-15 LPKs, one Armalite and 4 RRAs. I'm sure glad I got what I got, it's just crazy out there. It hurt to spend that kind of money in such a short period of time, but folks, I think things are going to get really bad.

Our Country's new Attorney General is openly anti-gun.

I'm thinking about picking up a few more KD lowers for spares and for trading later on down the road when everything gets banned again.

Buy now if you can, that's my thinking... 'cause this is what our new administration wants to do to our gun rights:

4 since election day ...

1 LMT (lower half)
1 Kaiser Defense (stripped)
2 LAR Grizzly (stripped)

All were purchased at "grab-yer-ankles" prices, which does not even include FFL transfer and DROS Fees.

p.s. Almost forgot about the NoDakSpud AKM receiver I bought from a fellow Calguns.net member.

My first was a Sun Devil that got a Stag 2H kit put on it.
I just got a call that one I ordered at Gun exchange is in (will likely get sold for....)
Buying an N6 tomorrow.
I'd like to find a Stag lower to move the kit over to, so I can continue the original plan of doing a varmint type build with the Sun Devil.
what's next? Who knows, but I have the fever.

1 Fulton FAR-15 and 2 LAR Grizzlies, and that'll be it for a good long while, as it's going to take me months to build up the LARs.

Oh, and J&R is in Livermore. Check the Commercial sales section for their thread.
