Let's have a contest, whoever guess the right day my upper gets delivered I will send a box of 223 herters ammo.

Let the games begin. I will PM the winner and provide updates.

I guess first. January 15th. Right before the Cow Palace show which would be nice.

I'm bored, raining no range, save ammo.

It's been 3 days now. Nothing but the initial email confirmation. I'm not holding my breathe. Good thing there is a drought on ammo and the weather sucks since I have no upper. I have time to put my lower which is in jail for 3 more days. I bought it the day at aaa sport in vallejo before stuff went crazy.

This is what I spent so far:

165. Lower
70. LPK RRA
35. Upper build kit
40. Moe stock
45. Rear mbus
45. Buffer tube, spring and st2 buffer
165. Bcm bcg
365. This psa upper
20.00. Pro mag
45. Gunfighter CH

Total - $995.00.

I was trying to keep it under 800 like others suggested, but I want the forward assist and extraction plate etc. Hopefully I can drop it for $3k when I'm done. Just kidding.

You wont hear from PSA now until they ship order..
I ordered my upper on 11/27 and it will be shipped to me today...
And now with PSA being closed till the 26th.. I say it will be 20 working days till you get yours. so I think the week on 1/21-1/25

Start hitting walmart for some ammo.. if you catch it right you can get some ..

Updated. Now we have two for 2/7...interesting...good thing I have another AR and an AK to play with. Bad thing is AMMO is too friggin out of control. I would not mind taking my time building the lower and wait for the Upper since AMMO is so high. I can only afford to take four shots at the range right now!

I just emailed them to ask if they can put on the FDE handguard and not the black one. What do you all think?

Any chance of that happening?

I got one of the uppers with the vortex scope for 360.00 and free shipping.. got it today ... the scope alone is a 150.00 scope.. when all said and done ill have about 750 or less in this AR.... not a bad deal for an AR..

but all the whinners that are saying prices are too high in 4sale say the prices willl come down & ARs are only worth $700



Guess none have built an AR before $bare bones price without sites is going to run ya $700-800.at $$s 2 weeks ago
$750 is doing very well;)

Wow, this is crazy! So I was at my LGS yesterday and I was checking out another grip for my NFA lower and this guy came in and offered to buy my lower. Now, I did not like the polymer NFA lower so I figure this was an opportunity for me to ditch it so I did. I gave him an outrageous price of (north of 3) and he took it. Paid me cash right there and did the FFL at the LGS.

Now the bad thing is I can't find another lower. I'm holding a BCM BCG waiting for this upper to come in lord knows when and I don't have a lower.

Now I wonder if I will be able to get another lower before my upper!

I'm thinking about selling the BCM BCG now too if I can get another lower.

Was going to sell off a brand new "middy" pencil barrel PSA upper received in late fall. After seeing that feckless "enemies domestic" douche bag diane Feinstink on TV rallying againt the AR15, I decided to keep the thing.

Ended up slapping on the upper to a spare lower and there is now another excellent "Defensive Tool" resting safely in the arms locker stash here at the forward firebase.

I am currently here in the mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania with the temp outside hovering at about 7-degrees Fahrenheit. An ice storm is blowing in overnight and the electric generator is fueled and ready for another impending power failure.

You good people in California . . . Do not worry! This latest big anti-gun push is going nowhere. Instead . . . Relax! Enjoy the marvelous climate there in California.

I really miss driving up northbound on the 101 along the Pacific shore through the foggy Eucalyptus groves in the middle of the night. My gawd is was sweet! The native CA hot brunette girlfriend and me would drive up in her new Mercedes roadster to wine country. We'd hangout there for half-a-week as devotees' of the grape. She happened to own an exotic car dealership so rolling around in high end iron was commonplace. That kind of thing never happened to me at any time in my life in New England.

Unless some rag head psycho vermin detonates a thermo-nuke device in Solvang, California will always be climatically and topographically great. On the best days, the northeast United States will still mostly suck.

As that third-world character sings in his little song . . ." Don't Worry . . . Be Happy!"
