Austin-to-Waco, TX area source for receivers needed!

I am looking for a drive-to source for receivers for the following:
1. AR (lowers)
2. AK
Ones that are not dedicated rifle receivers, of course. Those are the main ones, but I also am wantin’ receivers for:
3. Ruger 10/22
4. Mauser 98-style
And way further down the list but still desireable are:
5. SP89, and
6. FAL (upper)
I can of course pay the transfer fee from afar, but my local FFL has such a huge stock (of complete firearms) that he charges 25 bucks PLUS 10% of the value of the transferred item. I guess he just doesn’t like to do it. At his prices, neither do I!
So I am looking for a local source- closest to my location (Fort Hood/Killeen area) is best and I can easily drive up to Waco or down to Austin. I’d go farther if I had to for a guy who has a lot of them!
Anyone know any vendors for these?
Thanks!

Are you looking for an FFL to do the transfers or are you looking for someone who has these receivers in stock?

Ask Karl at www.krtraining.com, he probably knows the Austin scene.

Heritage Firearms on 183 N. in Austin has AR and AK recievers in stock most of the time lately.

Geojap-
In stock would be way better since i can just pick them up.
But if the in-stock price is too high relative to the internet best price plus transfer fee. Well, not always but sometimes money talks.

And thanks all for the links! I'll check them out.

Since we are kinda close, maybe a group shoot is something to look into?
Be great to meet some of you.

Any of you all going to be at the Saxet show Oct 15-16 at the Crockett convention center?

Can you ccw there?

p.s. also, I am going to the cathedral afterwards, is the cathedral one of the churches where you CAN or CANNOT carry? I know it varies.

I second Heritage Firearms and I might go the Collectors show in Austin. We need another gun show rant thread.

You'll see me: the guy managing 2 toddlers; carrying one and the other strapped into a baby bjorn, or one walking and either way saying 'don't touch' or something similar and trying to get my son to name all the firearms, at least by type.
Might be another guy, with his kids similarly in tow, along with me.

It'll be fun!

BTW: I called Saxet and you can bring your carry piece in with you, but they will have you unload it at the door. At least we wont have to leave it in the trunk in downtown Austin!
I emailed but still dunno about carry in the Cathedral- I bet the person who got that email freaked out!
