Picked up my first OLL today from Bright Spot in Riverside. It's a Double Star. Also have a lower parts kit and a bolt on mag conversion, now I just need an upper!

Since I'm planning a lefty I want a Stag 3HL; the Del Mar Crossroads gunshow is this weekend -- think I'll have any luck finding a Stag 3HL at the show? I see 10% has them for $470 and that's where I'd buy from if I wasn't so anxious!!!!

Also, what would be a recommended buttstock while I wait for MagPul to release the UBR?

Thanks,

Mark

Have you ever fired an AR?
Personally I dont find it any different shooting a Left v. Right and im a lefty.
Its more of a preference. The triangle guard for the most part will prevent brass from hitting you in the face. Then again theres always the factor of being different. Too bad you didnt go to Costa Mesa, Hector had 3H's for $380

Im sure you wont have any problems finding a 3HL, its just a matter of how much you are willing to pay for it :P

Congratulations Mfortie! My first OLL was a double star, I wasn't really sure of that brand, cause I never heard of it but it turned out to be an exellent lower, nice finish, fit and function. I'm sure you'll be happy with it, just be careful installing the front pivot pin detent and spring!!~!!!! It might shoot itself into the twilight zone with all the other lost detents and springs.:D

i just ordered my 2HT stag upper from LAN World too.

http://www.lanworldinc.com/2ht.gif

Can't wait to get it. Even with shipping, i saved $75+. my local dealer had it for $699 plus tax (8.25%). Damn, $625 is a deal if you ask me. No tax and shipping was $20 with 2 lowers kits.

Careful at Crossroads, i went to the Orange Country Faregrounds and it wasn't all that good. Mostly cuz everything was more expensive than you could find online. Maybe they like haggling, i'm not much for that so i go straight for the straight shooters.

Almost forgot, congrats on the OLL. Good luck on the upper. This whole AR thing is a little adicting cuz soo many guys on this site have such awesome setups. makes me want to copy all of them.

I bet you can call up CWS and pay for it online, then pick it up at the show... that would guarantee you get it if we've got it in stock.

If you want a simple stock that you are just going to replace with a UBR when they are available then just buy a used A2-style stock on eBay. I bought a bare A2 for under $10. I also have a bare original A1 stock (no trap door) that I could let go for cheap. PM me if interested.
