Call them? That is what I did, talked with an actual LaRue and placed my order. I'm kind of upset at DJL2 for originally bringing this sale to our attention. Thanks to his efforts I'm out 1200.00 and still have to buy a scope, not to mention getting a sufficient supply of 6.5G brass by converting factory ammo to brass, then getting the RL550 set up to load 6.5. I'm in pain here.
"I keep trying to order my lower...getting an error...must. get. lower. It'll complete my super cool color scheme where none of the colors match at all...heh." Make sure you are not logged in when you add it to the cart - log in after and you should have no problems.
I did manage to get it ordered...still not exactly sure what the technical difficulties were. FFL holders go one of two ways: 1. Here, take a copy in case you need something transferred 2. Have them get in touch with us, you cannot have a copy under any circumstances Sadly, all my local options are option 2. I think the folks at LaRue might be more user friendly, so I'll make a call to them when I get a chance to address that side of it. If it makes you guys feel better, my ~$1000 LaRue...
Called LaRue today to check on my lower. I was concerned because my order was still marked 'Compliance Call Julie.' The guy I got a hold of told me that Julie had gone for the day (it was 4:45 Texas time). He told me that she had a huge stack of FFL facs on her desk to work through and that what was time consuming was that many of them didn't reference the order# or even person that the FFL was providing the info for. After I checked I realized that the instructions weren't very clear:...
I did some follow-up with my LGS - I'm confident they'll get it sorted. I'm waiting on some backordered ammo right now, so I've a little time. It shoots just fine with the CMT lower anyway...might just leave it and hang onto the lower.
My 6.5mm Grendel upper is now inbound. According to the website, they ship with a carbine weight buffer. Is that true? Do they function well with it? I am considering getting a vltor or BCM A5 extension to go with it but I cannot find anyone who has used an a5 with a larue upper.
My 6.5 Grendel has a carbine buffer. Works fine. I really enjoy shooting this rifle. Sub MOA easy. Rounds 4-6 on my sighting in target clover leafed at 100. Dinging metal at 200 results in a black smear in the middle of the plate to paint after 5 or 6 rounds. Did I mention I like shooting this thing? Hopefully they'll get my lower shipped soon.
thanks for that info, I thought carbine was light, but now I realize that Larue knows what they are doing and I should just use what they send. I had a wacky Idea about swapping back and forth between a 6.5mm and 5.56mm upper with no buffer change. FYI My brother is waiting on a Larue lower as well. He called them the other day and got told they were waiting for a new batch to come in. Apparently, a lot of people jumped on the lower offer.
Is this any cause for concern? The blue/grey area between the rails is also on the right and left side of the upper. It acts like oxidization. Oil and a shop towel will remove it but it turns the towel the same bluish color. Did anyone else get an upper like this? I don't care what it looks like, but if it's a bad anodizing job I'm mildly concerned about it.
Well my lower arrived today and I swapped the MBT out of the receiver I had been using and installed it in the LaRue lower, also swapped the RE, stock and grip. Very pleased with the o'all finish and color match (yeah, I know) also how solidly the upper and lower mesh together - no play whatsoever. The lower receiver exchange shouldn't impact how it shoots, so color me happy with my complete LaRue in 6.5 Grendel.
My lower that was ordered on 9/19 finally arrived on 11/27. Haven't built it yet, but even the FFL commented on the quality. I'm sorely tempted to also get one in 6.5CM or .308, but I'm the po-lice and therefore poor. These things are just such a bargain, relatively speaking.
Anybody see the suppressor sale price along with the upper kit? I just called to confirm Julie received an updated copy of my LGS' FFL and Dan at Larue mentioned sub $400 308 Tranquilo. I just got a SF Ryder 9mm and Sig 556 can out of ATF purgatory, that's a screaming price to have another stamp
I ordered 9/12 and my CC was charged ~ 5 days later. I sent my FFL info while I was on the phone and verified 3 times they had it, it was correct, and they didn’t need anything else. I emailed them about 2 months out and got “Everything is in order, you just need patience” as a response. Now that I think of it, I also never got my LaRue 2017 Christmas ornament this year....
This was the 2nd AR I painted. It's not creative or pretty, but I think it works. It also didn't take very long. I like this paint because it blends in almost year round but if necessary I can hit it with a couple of shots of dark forest green. This was before I transitioned completely to Aervoe paints. I find Aervoe to be more durable than what I used here (Krylon, Rustoleum). I guess it's not invisible, but also I'm about 4 feet away. Next time I'm out training, I'll take some longer...
Thanks Wyatt. I find when using a TLR type light, running it on my top rail in front of my front sight works really well for me. I use a "C" clamp grip of sorts on my rail and my thumb is in a natural position to work the light. I have an carbines with a tape switches, but I don't always think they are necessary. I lose a little sight radius, but I'm already at 10.3 on the barrel. a few inches isn't going to be the end of the world.
