    All striped lowers will be transferred as a firearm, not a rifle or pistol, similar to say, a mossberg shockwave

    Do not get a lower marked pistol. There are no benefits. I don't even get why they make these things.

    Another myth is that you have to use one of those weird round buffer tubes, but that is also made up.

    Sorry for the consternation I may have caused, with the "lower" comment.
    Heck I just learned if I weld on a long flash hider then the hider become part of the barrel for length. I could have bought a SBR upper and added the XB177 grenade launcher hider to it and had a more real looking build. Oh well, live and learn. Its why I still get up in the morning. Still can't wait to get my first AR since 1977. Come on PSA.

    At the time, I'm less than 2 hours away from two PSA stores. They have some unadvertised in store specials that are crazy. A couple of months ago they had a bunch of odds and ends complete uppers on clearance, rifle and pistol. Some were priced as low as $89.* They always have some good ammo specials in their stores.

    * I did not buy any of these uppers, because I'd have to buy another lower, and here we go again. PSA is the devil, they have made me buy parts and pieces and assemble AR's. I unsubscribed from their daily emails because they always had a killer deal on something and I'm weak.

    Its like living close to Primary Arms. Especially when you need something small, but the mail is the smarter way to get it.

    I agree it is a novelty. I wouldn't spend much on one either. PSA is a great company to build through.
