    Yes i have to admit im falling into a little panic buying myself .. what can i say.

    ANYWAY I was hoping to find a local houston shop that would have some lowers in stock. If you know of any stores please point me in the right direction.

    Have you contacted forum sponsor Talon Arms? If they don't have any, they may be able to point you in the right direction.

    You could always try to get in on this group buy IT'S HERE AR Lower group buy - 1919a4 forums but they already have over 1,000 ordered and I doubt they can guarantee a delivery date.


    No disrespect to Talon Arms but their prices are really high compared to other places. The GSG5 for example is about 35.00 more than i have seen it elsewhere

    I don't see any lowers for sale on their website. My point was that if you called them, they should either be able to help or point you to someone that may be able to help.

    You're about a month too late if your worried about getting the best price on an AR lower that is in stock somewhere.

    You will see them online for $80 - $130 and they are all sold out. So I would expect to pay either on the high end of that or more for one that someone actually has in stock. Buds had the double star lower for $119 delivered (doesn't include your ffl fees) up until this past weekend.

    Lowers are tough

    We have seen our wholesale prices rise to near retail on most semi autos over the last week. We have lowers but only sell them with the complete lower parts kit at this time. You will find our prices for the lower and whichever parts kit you choose will be less than retail.

    these last couple weeks have been crazy.

    Great news, 2 questions

    1. can people just come by and pick up orders as you are local?
    2. im looking for the CMMG complete lower that AIM has on order for $185.00. do you have something that comes close to that.

    Im on a blackberry so its hard to look at your site
    Thank you for your time.

    Talon pricing on lowers is competitive. Once you add in shipping and FFL to your internet order, you'll find that you may as well have given your biz to Talon and kept your $$ in state. I picked up two from them on election day and am pleased with their pricing and service.

    I did find one heck of a deal on C Products magazines from an individual on another gun board I frequent. 30 rd mag for $9.75 including shipping, I picked up a few of those.

    Give Rob a ring at the shop since you are on your blackberry today. His number is 713-529-2910.

    ya im just im meetings all day so i kill time on the site and others. for some reason your site will not load on my berry.

    iratollah its true when you add in the shipping + FFl fees it does get a little higher. i usually only save a few bucks. My big thing is i hate to wait. Ammo is no problem. But when it comes to rifles.. etc.. i want it yesterday

    Have you tried Tomball Pawn? They had Rock River and one other brand in stock as of a couple of weeks ago.

    I hear what you are saying, but Tomball Pawn has been re-stocking pretty quickly. I talked to RR directly about three weeks ago, and the lady there said there was only a three day wait on stripped lowers.

    The show this weekend will be a waste of time. With the price of parking and to get in. I seriously doubt there will be any deals unless you looking for anything but a black rifle.
    Sounds like the thrill is already gone after going to only your first Houston gun show.
