RRA and CMMG are both quality AR mfgs and suppliers etc.

However, Im not up on pricing in the AR game.

Any local shops around here to pick up a lower?

Im planning on building an AR in the next few weeks, looking for an Armalite, Bushmaster, or maybe a Rock River...

Found some good prices here, but he doesnt have a storefront, you have to order it and get it shipped to a local FFL... :rolleyes: :(

Robbie is at all the gun shows.

CTD! sometimes has complete lowers, but you will be paying more.

Yeah, but im assuming because he makes you ship it to a FFL you still cant just pick it up from him at the gunshow? Or can you? (Is it a problem of him doing background checks, or ?)
I just didnt really want to mess with doing that because by the time I pay the $16 shipping, plus $25 FFL transfer, and state tax, I wouldnt really be saving much over just messing with a mail order lower from out of state... :eek:

I have ordered from this guy many times scott-

http://www.ar15sales.com/rracomp.htm

His name is pete and he has 100% feedback on ar15.com. His prices are so low that the other sellers got mad at him for posting them, so you have to call him up. Nice guy, and the best prices I have seen by far on quality Rock River parts.


And never buy a complete rifle or even a "half" at that. Its so much cheaper, and VERY easy to start with a stripped lower reciever and assemble the rifle to your liking. I didnt use any specialty tools for the entire lower either, albeit the upper will require a barrel vice (30 bucks).

As far as brands go, Rock River has the tightest tolerances and just good awarded a 5 year contract with the DEA, FBI, and CIA. I figure if its got enough for them, it ought to be good enough for me!

If your going to be in DFW over the break scott, your more than welcome to shoot it, or after the break I can bring it down. LMK

I ordered a High Standard lower over the phone from them and picked it up at the next gun in FW. Just did the standard background check and I was out the door. He also had a bunch of them on the table. Looks like he will be at Market Hall Jan 5-6.

1)You walk in to the show
2) Find Robbies table.
3)Pic the lower you want
4) Fill out the form 4473
5) They call NICS
6) you go home with a new lower. :D

He is just like every other dealer at the shows. They have credit card machines and phones lines.

Sweet, good deal! I was just unsure if he did the paperwork or not, his website kinda makes it sound like you need to have your paperwork done at the FFL youre picking it up at...(even if youre local)
Sure wish he was going to another gun show besides the 5/6th, I wont be here...:(

So far, hes the best deal ive found on complete lowers...(Ill probably just order an Armalite/M4 stock) complete for $240 aint bad....

does that include everything but mags?
If you buy the two "parts" complete, yes...
You will need a stock with your lower, but thats no biggie...

Mags(30rnd) are in the $10 range right now I believe, but sometimes go up and down in price...
