I found it to be a great upper for the price we paid. I am very happy with mine. I sure miss the old days of group buys.

Mud is the man! Couldn't be more satisfied with his communication, the transaction, and of course, the product.

So if someone wanted to start up a group buy again, that wouldn't be ok under the new Calguns "no sales" rules?

I was thinking of doing a purchase of lower receiver parts from DPMS. Sure, there are mixed reviews, but I've had good luck with the set I've already got. I wanted to buy a couple more, maybe 2 to 4 sets.

If a group buy is out of the question, then so be it.

Well there is no sale section here, but I did put up the group buy on the yahoo sale section, and on the "other" forums - so long as we are not doing it here, should be fine.

Sure thing. The yahoo sale section is pretty much dead. The other forums though, have a better back and forth for sales - PM sent

Sent you guys the link to the GB on the gunscal site. It always seems funky to refer people to the "other" forums, but what choice do we have.

Jump in on this upper guys, if all 3 of you are interested, we will only need 8 more people.

CHUGGA CHUGGA CHUGGA CHUGGA, CHOOOO CHOOOOO

I purchased two in the last group buy, and let me say that you won't be dissapointed.
I decided on a 1-7, and a 1-9.
Fit finish, and function are fabuloius.
The price was the main reason I went in on the buy.

Right now we still need 9 more people to close out this group buy. I threw the GB up on the FALFILES in hopes that the last 9 will be found a little quicker - they have AR-15 items over there, so you can bet it will at least be seen . AR15 has too many guidlines for a GB, so no luck there
