View Full Version : Anyone tried to build an AR lately?

Dang, it is getting hard to find parts like uppers, BCG's barrels etc...

Seems like all my old haunts like AIM, Midway, PSA, etc are out of stock or only have 1 thing I need and not two...

I have a Spikes ST 15 lower for this build and just found out I can't buy a Spikes stripped upper as they are using all production for building complete uppers and rifles due to demand.

I just finally found a Lothar/Walter 18 inch barrel tonite for a decent price and sure enough after my purchase, they had no more...

I realize i'm on kind of a rant, but the build I did a couple of years ago went as fast as I could spend my money~

I always go to M&A parts.

Yep, parts are drying up again. Some of it us due to the number of first-time buyers, and some of it is due to all the Chicken Littles buying guns before Obama bans everything by Executive Order as soon as he wins reelection.

Oh, wait, he can't actually do that...
