A NIB or barely used(less than 100 rounds or just not too much more) stag 2h complete upper for $500 or less on ar15.com or somewhere?

It's looking like this is going to be my budget, and I am still leaning back and forth between this option, which is either impossible or incredibly rare, or just buying from ar15sales and waiting like a patient little boy...

It's not impossible...

Lol. Not exactly a promising prediction... You think I should just go for a delayed upper? I mean, if I got it I would have a month to shoot the gun, and then I would be living in dorms and not be able to bring any guns, so either way I would be waiting a long time without any guns.

Think I should go with pete and save myself the trouble?

Unheard of? No. I picked up a 2HT from pete last year for 650 shipped which was my first AR build. Good guy to buy from if you are willing to wait. I got lucky I bought before the panic and got my upper in about a week.

Yea but now that option falls into the second one I mentioned, where I would have to wait. I don't think pete has any ready to ship in a week at the moment.

One of the best deal ever was on ar15, early 2008.... $595, group buy of full Stag kits.... EVERYTHING but the lower receiver... ie. stag upper, stag LPK, stag 6pos stock, even comes with a magazine...

Now.... fast forward to today..... yes, $500 or less is unrealistic...

Thats why I said if you were willing to wait. ;)

Search around the marketplace if you can't wait. The other day I was pondering all afternoon about a Noveske n4 light upper for 850 complete which I thought was a very good deal. I managed to hold off because it was exactly what I was looking for.

Look around, you can always find something if you try hard enough.

Well, we are talking about the same guy anyway, and seeing as how the upper I want is going for a lot more than I can pay on the forums, based on what I have seen and what you guys have told me, I think I'll go with pete for the upper...

Go order from someone else who WILL NOT CHARGE until they are shipping your upper.

I think you can just go order from RRA.... rock river arms...

How does del-ton sound? I like the price, and the less than 20 week wait haha. They don't charge until they ship.

I picked up a NIB similar style upper for $400 a few weeks ago on gunbroker. You have to check often and score a "BUY it now" No Reserve type deal.

It can be done.

I sold a very nice flat top LH upper with a four rail for $500 just recently. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=174646

You can certainly get an upper for that - though you will have to be quick - mine was gone in 10 hours.
