    My lgs has this for $430 otd, its a dpms, 5.56, 1:9 twist. I haven't seen it in person, my buddy texted me this. Still on a 30 day hold, and sounds like this is my price, not the price. Used, but good condition.

    What do you guys think? IMG_1265.jpg

    It's their bare bones model. It probably has the semi BCG not the full auto BCG which is what you want. The semi BCG is to light and can cause issues with feeding. It's also over priced. I would pass on it.

    Go look at it, turn on the charm and beat them down.
    NIB for $400 is probably online plus shipping plus FFL fees.
    Go in, blink those widow makers and start at $325.

    Yeah, I am leaning toward building. He had called me on this one because it just came in the door half hour after I had just talked to him about ar15's. Sounds like they are flying out his door and he can't keep them in stock, lots of 20 year olds coming in and buying. Ill have him do the transfer on a lower though.

    Well he likes me, that was his price for me and if I don't take it he's going to put $550 on it and someone will probably buy it quick.

    Yepper!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am doing that and same with lower receivers. Sub $00 can be done easily now at the present time.

    If you buy the receivers "complete" your build will consist of throwing two take down pins in place and calling it a day.

    Well, you can bet he don't like you very much Kitty. Nor would I buy his story. He may just be trying to sell some thing, any thing.

    ^^^Yeah, your buddy is full of pooples. My buddy picked up a DPMS Oracle 16" 1:7 with a Vortex Strike Fire for $400 from our LGS.

    Hmm. Good to know.

    I got decent deals from him the last 2 guns I bought.

    OK, what do you want the stock to be? The adjustable type of or a solid stock?

    I really need to decide exactly what I want.

    I just heard it has never been fired.

    I'm currently building an Aero Precision upper, 20" 1:7 .223 wylde barrel, rifle gas system, A2 birdcage, ultralight 15" full length rail key mod hand guard with two 6" detachable pic rails, A2 stock, and a premium LPK for under $400.

    If you are patient, you might find a complete firearm for no more than the cost of building one or a used one. My Adams Arms was a cosmetic blemish; never could find the blem. The entire gun was little more than just the upper.
