yeah never mind I was gonna tell you all about a cool new ar15 with piston upper, but CMMG screwed me, wont ship even the upper to me in cali and wont ship it to LAN world to do the conversion that my FFL could do himself. But I can buy it through Lanworld and pay crap loads extra and instead of seeing it next weekend see it sometime in 2011.

Basically they sold out of them and are canceling my order because it's easier, sweet.

I wonder why the went to a 1/9 twist ratio - I thought they only did 1/7 - at least that's what my DI upper is. Good stuff - thanks for posting!

we'll see. I just got an email telling me they cancelled my order and can't ship to cali and I'm trying to work out the details.

999 for the upper itself, or the whole rifle? Also I'm a bit confused since I can't find it on their site, plus I was told last I called that they were like 6 months out on all orders.

the whole rifle is 999 and it's under rifles. They told me that they had a batch ready for delivery..... M4-LEP

K found it.

if you order it I would say send it to lanworld first - he can convert it to cali-legal (bullet button whatever) since I don't think CMMG does.

:dupe:

Except I thought it was just an upper.

If it is a whole rifle, it costs less than their DI guns.

we'll see. brightspot pawn will accept delivery if no mag is included but if they tell me they will accept lanworld modification ect I'll just do that.

I've been told some things by local dealers but I'll wait to hear back from them on this.

Anyone other than Lanworld as our middleman. I don't have a specific problem with them though their rep is not as good as it once was. I will give Chris a call tomorrow and see how things are going.

Carbine Piston Conversion

CMMG carbine piston conversion replaces front sight base, handguard cap, handguards and bolt carrier on your stock AR15 style upper. Gunsmithing required, instructions included. Piston systems are cleaner on the operating systems due to hot gasses being diverted at the gas block instead of the upper receiver. Piston is hard chrome plated and is removable from the front of the gas block. Bolt carrier has impingement key built in for maximum strength. For use only on semi automatic firearms with barrels 14.5" or longer.
SKU Number:K7-PC
Price: $450.00


They also sell the piston unit as a conversion kit for carbines.

If its upper only why wont they ship to cali, they have in the past. What does Lanworld charge to convert evil these days?

nice, so you'll sell half the gun for all the price.

Considering the upper only msrp will be 675, you'll be making about 100 % profit.

the worst profit margin I ever ran across was 22% less than retail.

If hes getting that much he's alreay making over 140 bux on a 530 dollar sale, at 999 he's making over 470 on a 530 dollar sale.

wow how insulting have you guys even looked at CMMG's web site I suggest you two were not the smartest in your class in reading CMMG is selling their uppers for the piston model at $999 go to their site and look under new product. And not to sound like a jack *** but didn't your mom teach you think before you speak this way you don't sound like a jack @$$
Perhaps you should check CMMG's website again. They seem to say it's a complete rifle plus it comes with a 30 round mag. The product id is M4-LEP under New Products. You can also find it under their Firearms tab and then under Piston System Firearms also with the M4-LEP product ID and the $999.95 price.

This will be the last thing i will post about this subject i never said i was going to sell the upper at that price i stated if they needed help getting the upper i can help

that does appear to be correct. Your original statement was "i can help get these, [and by the way, i believe] the price listed is for uppers only"

I read it like you were informing the board you believe the 999.99 price listed on cmmg's site was for a upper not a complete rifle.

Some of you are WAY to sensitive. He said "if you guys want just to upper i can get them for you and the above listed price is upper only", not "my price is for the upper only." I thought the meaning was clear. Either way, using terms like dick and jack @ss were not necessary.

Back on topic. $999 is a great deal, just wish they would finish the 308 G3 mag compatable lowers and also a piston upper for it. Did you see the pics on ARF of the G3 lower with piston upper?

You should have just kept quiet about being a Kalifornian and just processed via an Intermediary FFL.

$999.99 for a complete AR w/ a gas piston upper? Have I misread something here? Is there a typo on their website? Could this be the AR deal of the decade? At that price one cannot afford to not buy it.

I bought one.

Lanworld told me they don't do transfers anymore like this. I think I will have Freakshow do it for me.
