    So I picked up a lower from a friend a few weeks before "the panic" happened, but I havent had the time until know to start building it up. Does anybody know where I can get a parts kit? NOBODY has anything online anymore.

    Maybe one of you guys has an extra one you could sell me? Haha

    Thanks

    Palmetto State Armory has a couple in stock that come with nicer triggers and one in stock that does not come with any trigger. PSA has good stuff and I have used two of their standard lower parts kits before without any problems. I know that FN makes a lot of their barrels, but am unsure who makes the rest of the parts.

    I just built an AR using a PSA MIAD lower kit. Worked fine for me in a Delton lower.

    JT Distributors, sub group of Doublestar here in Kentucky. They have military contracts and are great. Great customer service and will do custom stuff also. Most kits start at 400, $50 more for chrome line, only problem back order.

    WIN, the page showing the Stag LPKs may not show out of stock, but you didn't look elsewhere on their site. According to this, customers can expect up to a six week delay for small parts.

    I also ordered from DSA. DSA has already charged me, which hopefully means I won't have to wait 6 weeks for LPKs from them!

    OK - Thanks for the correction. I didn't mean to mislead anyone.

    No, it wasn't immediately obvious. I just thought, "This is too good to be true," and looked around.

    I think a lot of places websites couldnt keep up with the demand... I ordered a lot of parts that showed in stock when I ordered only, to go back to check on my order or get an email that its been backordered.

    Now I cannot find a BCG anywhere..

    BCG's were very hard to find before the insanity hit.

    Yep, and now you get to pay 3-4 times what they normaly cost if you can find them.

    Everyone keeps asking me what they should do, I tell them to be patient and start putting some money away now. In a short time the crazies will run out of money and the manufacturers will catch up. The market will be back to normal and those companies that didnt hike their prices up will be rewarded with loyal customers from here on out.

    Those that over paid for what they have will learn a hard lesson and be stuck with a $650 rifle that they paid over $2k for. That keeps them broke and out of the loop for a while so the normies can go about business as usual.

    Patience will pay off, if you didnt need this stuff a week or two ago you probably dont need it now.

    Unless, of course, there is a gun ban. Then you'll be stuck with a bunch of parts...
