Ok, these polls used to be a regular feature on this forum. However, some folks have been selling off "extra" lowers (as if there is such a thing!), and other folks have bought more, since the last time.

In your responses, try and post:

1. Your brands
2. How many you've actually built, and how many are stripped. Throw in config if you like.
3. Also, let us know if you think WE'RE ALL GOING TO JAIL!!! :)

I'll start a second one for AK-pattern receivers.

Just stay in Honor and even if you get arrested you will prevail.

In order to know how to stay in honor you must take a course.

Ill get the name and order info asap.

Also studing the UCC wouldn't hurt. As that is what its based on.

Dang Gram 10-14 and you haven't bought even 1 of my kits ?

*grin* Actually, the "WE'RE ALL GOING TO JAIL!!!" is a December '05 joke. I told one of my friends right away, and he told his then-gf all about it. He was full of excitement, and must've gone on for 5-10 minutes. She listened, then asked in this cutesy voice, "Are we gonna go to jail?"

It's since become a running Calguns OLL joke of sorts.

Brands:
1x CMMG
1x Mega Gator
1x Tom Sawyer (Navy SEALs logo)
2x Lauer (consecutive)
5x Stag (3 consecutive)

Built:
Armalite 20" A2 upper on CMMG; LMT 2-stage trigger, A2 buttstock, MM grip, buttstock weight - 11.5lbs overall weight, nicely balanced. Drop-mag config.
Stag limited M4gery (14.5" 1:7, Phantom FH) on Gator, collapsible buttstock, LMT rear sights, Magpul MIAD PG. Pinned via Sporting Conversions kit.
V-22 upper (22LR) on the SEALs lower, PG + collapsible stock + cheapo-Chinese-optics. Drop-mag, as it's 22LR and I feel safe enough because it won't come off the lower without considerable hammering.
Stag lower, built with Stag LPK, PG, collapsible buttstock. No upper; it's sitting around as a spare. Pinned via Sporting Conversions kit.

Jail:
Won't happen. :)

WTH how are you going to turn a fab 10 into a 50BMG ?

There are 50BMG bolt action uppers out there. You just can't install one on a non-50BMG-registered receiver without committing a felony.

If you own a multi caliber receiver, such as the FAB-10, and did so BEFORE the deadline to buy your 50BMG receiver, then you could register it as a 50BMG.

Now running away before the angry mob jumped me. ;)

One Double Star with 20" flat top varmint kit from Model 1 Sales, Ace stock with Versa-Pod. 4X16X40 Illuminated mil-dot BSA scope. 2000 rounds

One Lauer with standard 20" A-2 kit, also from Model 1 Sales; only upgrade was to "national match" sights. 600 rounds

We are not going to jail but I bet we all have an express ticket to HELL! LOL

1 Lauer built up to M4gery... shoots great.
1 manufacturer unknown but has a Budweiser embossed on it, unbuilt as yet.

If the current proposals are enacted and signed into law, these will go out of state immediately, before the effective date. I'll be gone, too, along with the investments, the cats, and the jobs I create and the state income taxes, etc. I pay.

1 X Stag
1 X Stag marked 6.8

2 X Superior

2.
One RRA build with 20" RRA Varmint Upper, scope and larue mount, gripless
One Superior built with 16" Bushmaster A2 Upper
One RRA built with CMT upper / Denny's Guns Recon Barrell & a butt-load of goodies

3.
I aint goin back!

Also note, I like my CMMG lower's fit & finish the best, and the double star's the least. The Superior and Stags are very close in the middle. My safe has never looked so badass on the inside.

I've got my registered Bushmaster (with mid-length 16" RRA upper) and (5) stripped Rock River Arms LAR-15 lower receivers. I haven't built anything because:

1.) I can't make up my mind.
2.) My money finds it's way to other projects
3.) No room in current safe
4.) I don't have time to shoot, let alone time to build

Yep, that pretty much covers it. If I have my way, I would add a couple Noveske's too. Oh well, I think I have time.

If the DOJ didn't already know I had lowers, I would have to wonder.

What they don't know is I have already planned for this. Do they really want back my kiestered OLL? I carry it everywhere with me so they can't raid my home while I am at work and take it from me.

Just bought 5 more because I had the chance. 3 Spikes and 2 RRA's that came home today. Already have a BM Carbon 15, 2 Sabre Defence and 2 Doublestars. 10 is a nice round number. 5 are built up:
24" varminter (the Beast)
16" car
16" railed
and 2 A1 style 20" with old A1 (no trapdoor) stocks and triangle handguards.
Have an 18" cmmg barrel on it's way for #6-and have painted the furnature, upper and lower OD green. The other 4 are for future builds. I think it's enough.

Try ColdWarShooters.com even though I work at a gun shop, I had a number of transfers through them, and bought a number of receivers personally. Can't beat their service, and they probably know a FFL near you.

None built, all stripped. The stag makes a great spacer for my filing cabinet! I tried using the bushmaster carbon for a paperweight, but it blew off my desk along with the papers. ;)

I didn't see Eagle Arms AR-10's on the list of banned AW's, would their AR-10 lowers be considered an OLL even though all of their *15's are on the list?

Eagle Arms AR-10 lowers are manufactured by Armalite and are marked as such. Armalites are listed as banned. Until they decide to omit the "by Armalite" rollmark on the receiver or change the model number, they are listed.

Just this past Saturday I had a talk with a local FFL who told me that Armalite sales has been bugging him to buy a batch of Eagle Arms AR-10 receivers, but he declined because they say "Armalite" on them. He told them he would start selling them if they omit the "by Armalite" rollmark, or change the model number, but Armalite refused saying it would be too costly.
