Need help finding the lowers. They seem to have gone missing... at least at BCM, Spike's Tactical, etc.
Got a couple buddies looking to get a stripped one to SBR, so they are looking for somewhat of a brand name (I know, I know, they are all made by 3 manufacturers then stamped), and I don't blame them for not wanting some no-name lower they'll have probably for a long ass time.
However, BCM is not accepting orders, all the ones on the Spike's website say 4-6 week backorder, etc. I'm sure the Larue is worth the cash (duh...) but somewhat out of budget, at least for now.
The plan is to get the stripped lower and then start the SBR paperwork, and assemble the rest of the package while waiting on the BATFE (except the upper, again, duh. That's another backorder issue also... BCM.....).
So who knows where to find the $99-$130ish stripped uppers from reputable sources, that can have them in the mail soon? Really if any of the backordered companies could say "yeah, you'll be getting serial number xxx", they could start the paperwork, but I think that's crystal ballin' a little too far out, in case that serial number isn't actually the one that shows, after the paperwork is sent.
