AR Upper Market???

Have the manufactures caught up on producing uppers? I honestly thought I would have sold my upper in a matter of minutes as its priced fairly under what model 1 sales has them for, and I thought they still had a multi-month wait. I have seen a number of others not sell uppers either and thats why I was able to replace mine.

Del-ton is still advertising a 12-16 week backorder for complete uppers and rifle kits, but their parts orders have only 2 weeks processing time?

I ordered my kit from them the end of November and got it in May...It ended up at 5 1/2 months. Based only on my timeline, if you ordered the beginning of April, you should see yours any day now.

I feel ya, but they will come through as usual. Don't call them to change the order. I did see them post on AR15.com that if anyone called and changed the order, they would be pushed to the back of the line.

I've heard that Model1Sales has a 2 month wait now, not sure if I believe it, last time I talked to them (1.5 months ago) they told me 26 weeks.

I would say the OP is asking a fair price, but 350.00 would move that thing alot quicker.

I just figured this up just going off gunbroker; Spikes lower, buttstock w/buffer spring, bolt carrier/charging handle, and a dpms LPK $660.00 with the above upper.

The DTI kits ive been building 600.00 out the door. Includes everything.

Looks fairly priced, I think people may just be holding on to their money right now.
