Who has them? Lower $200, LPK $80, BB $20, Stock w/buffer tube $99. Looks like a $150 assembly charge.

If it makes you happy, it is/was a good deal. It wouldn't make me happy though.

IIRC....Sonoma Firearms. As of a few weeks ago.


Another interesting point.
High Standard in the early years consisted of a lot of guys that came from Colt. Ever notice the similarity in some of their firearms....

I think Bay Area Gun Vault also has some, and some of them are already built up and ready to go.

Maybe that is why SoCal here in SD gun was telling people their High Standard uppers were "Colt"???

Ehhh....maybe it is just because they use the same uppers w/ the same forge marking. For the most part* Colt is easily recognizable. They have the "C" stamp on the upper as well and often on the FSB. Colt barrels are also usually marked, BCG too

Standard as far as I know only offers uppers in 1:9. Colt has 1:9 and 1:7 in Carbine style uppers.

It is often confusing if you are shopping for an upper to distinguish who made what you are buying if you don't know your forge marks or aren't familiar with who does what on their Barrels, FSB, BCG and so on.

I guess that is one plus side to companies these days "laser engraving" their logo all over everything...

$550 is NO deal!

That's full retail MSRP on everything plus a $150 fee. Not way...
