I want to buy a few stripped lowers. I remember when regal/royal range was selling them for 39.99$. I should have bought more.  Nothing high end or super nice. Nashville Armory has the Anderson ones for 69.99$ I think.   Anyone seen them cheaper in a store?  PSA?  What is a reasonable FFL  for the transfers if I order them.  

Thanks.

I guess it is different for me, not having to pay for TICS, but I tend to go to Buds when they have them on sale and grab them at the ~$50 range by the handful. I have several full builds and quite a few lowers still laying around that I don't know what to do with.

My experience has been that if a local shop has Spikes Tactical lowers in stock for $100 I just grab them. Not only am I supporting a local gun shop, it works out about the same money as an online order without the wait. Most transfers I’ve done were $15 or $20 plus background check. But those prices are hard to find nowadays. Here in my area anyway. If you get a lower that you’re not tickled with for $59 or $69 and then get charged shipping (some do, some don’t), then add $25-50 transfer fee, the it’s worth it to me to buy and walk out with a lower I like more. The flip side to that is you’re limited to what the store has in stock unless they will order something. Then you’re back to the wait time for shipping but won’t have the transfer fee on top of it. Hope that helps and makes sense.

I can't remember the last time I bought a finished lower.  I keep a couple of 80% ones around.  Half an hour at the drill press and I'm ready to put on a finish.  

No muss, no fuss.  All done for under $50 including shipping.

Have they come down on the price? The last time that I looked at them they were more expensive than a finished lower.

I bought a couple about 6 months ago on GB for $35 each.  I haven't looked lately.

Face to face private sale? Or shipped to FFL?

 

Edit, you mean 80% lowers? So no FFL required?

80% ….correct no FFL required...really the only reason to get one unless you just like tinkering...now with these glock kits coming out at 80%...im sure there will be some rules changes the first time some POS uses one in a publicized crime....but for now if avoiding govt scrutiny is your thing or you just like to "build" they are the way to go....also if you have a Rural King nearby they usually have Anderson lowers for 49

I've gotten some Anderson lowers at Outpost Armory for $40, wish I bought more, last I saw they were $49-59. Nashville Gun and Knife has closed trigger guard Anderson lowers for $60, which isn't a terrible deal, if you like the closed trigger guard. Royal Range has Spikes lowers for less than $100, Noreen lowers for $70, and I think I saw Aero lowers for $60-70. I would prefer cheap Anderson lowers, but their prices are creeping up to that of higher quality brands.

Only issue I have is each then has a $25 transfer fee plus the BGC per transaction. Sometime I see them locally for $50 out the door at places (not often though).  Used to be one place local did it for $20 plus 5 for each additional transfer. The have gone to $25 per too.

      Alright, going through a real first-world problem here folks! I am looking at purchasing my first 308 chambered AR rifle in the near future. I am looking to spend around the $1k mark, which obviously limits my choices some. The rifle will be used for hunting and the occasional range session. So far I have looked at these options: PSA Gen 2 build (the cheapest option, so room in the budget for an optic), a Savage MSR 10 Hunter (really like the way this rifle looks), a S&W M&P 10 or M&P 10 Sport, and the Springfield Saint Victor. So far the Springfield I think has the narrow lead over the Savage.
      Just looking for input, let's talk! Any other rifles I should be considering that I haven't listed besides Diamondback?

      Hello to all... I'm new here and have come for a little advice. I'm looking to purchase my first ar15. Probably gonna go the used route. Been looking at a couple different ones, trying to keep it under $550 or so since it's my first and don't want to break the bank starting out. Been looking at a Smith & Wesson M+P 15 sport II, or an ATI AR-15 or Savage MSR-15 Patrol. Any help or advice is appreciated.

      It pains me to say this, but I need some help in finding a lever action rifle. I shot my friends marlin 30-30 and for all the #### I have given him over the years for having a "cowboy gun", it sure was a blast. What are some good brands and models and what to stay away from. This is will be a range toy, so .357 or .44 would be cool. .45-70 would be way out there, but looks to be the most fun.
