View Full Version : Getting an AR Upper Shipped to CA - MidwayUSA

06-22-2010, 8:46 PM
I found a few problems when I was looking to buy an upper via the internet and found that, companies I thought for sure would oblige, like :confused:Cheaperthandirt and :confused:Sportsmanguide and :confused:Cabela's refusing to ship UPPER Assemblies to CA...and low and behold a company that I have bought stuff from before but never thought they'd ship AR upper's to me but did so with NO HASSLE, :43:MIDWAYUSA.com . They have some great deals too if anyone is wanting to spend less than $500 for a quality AR 5.56/.223 upper assembly with charging handle and complete bolts, it's the place to get one complete...

Now get Midway to get their range bag in stock and I'll be happy!

screw cheaper than dirt. they wont even send an ar pistol grip. They also said that when the new ammo law goes into effect they will stop shipping all ammo to CA, not just handgun. I'm not supporting companies that dont support us anymore...

I gave up on Sportsmans Guide a while ago. They would not ship an M1 Carbine sling because it had the M1 designation! MidwayUSA is a great company for mail order.

Cabela's is usually pretty good about sending things behind California lines. Did you ask them what prevented them from sending an non-regulated part?

Midway USA is hands down the best large retailer in the market, and if you get your 03 FFL you will see a nice discount on their products too.

I got my DPMS 16" SS Bull Barrel upper from Midwayusa for $475 shipped. They have since raised the price on that product, but I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

My only problem with Midway USA is the fact that they wouldn't ship me ammo at all, because I live in Oakland. I had to have my boss order for me.

I order my ammo from NatchezSS.com now.

Probably won't shop at CTD any more.

+1 for Midway!

With the C&R discount you can see savings like $4 off an $18 item. :)

They also send you the "dream book" - their enormous catalog.

CTD and SG are well known as frightened little girls who make their own CYA rules.

MidwayUSA should be considered a godsend to those of us suffering the draconian nature of life under liberal/leftist rule in CA. I always thank the phone people for their support of Wednesday Nights on the Range and always ask them to thank good ol' Larry for helping support CA recreational shooters.
