    Non-mainstream stripped lowers - how much is a fair value in February 2009?

    I've found some for $130 and $150 and am wondering if they are a good value.

    Also, how hard are parts kits to find?

    That seems fair not a "deal" but fair. LPKs are getting a little easier to find. www.model1sales.com still has some. I got an email with a manufacture site that still has some in stock also. If I didn't erase it I'll post it on this thread.

    I paid $130 out the door for a stripped DPMS lower back in August. I'd be quite happy if I could find another one for that price.

    still $100 from essential arms.

    if you really want a YHM lower for around $160 or so, i know where you can buy them

    Figure $100, if in stock, plus $ shipping, plus FFL transfer, background... I think you're right there at about $140-ish.

    yeah, you're right. i usually buy them 2 or 3 at a time which splits the $12 shipping 2 or 3 ways, and my FFL doesn't charge me to do transfers, and the NICS is $10 here. So I usually get away under $110 or so. even if it's in stock (which i think it is), it'd be a week or so to ship, so if you're in a hurry, $140 is prob not a bad deal.

    However, if I bought a $140 lower here with 10% TN sales tax, it'd be $164 after the background check


    out of curiosity, what brand is 130 and which is 160?
