I was looking for bits and pieces, and suddenly realized....308 and 9 mm bolts are everywhere, but .223./5.56 are either Out Of Stock, or over $200 after shipping. And many of the OOS $125 stuff says no backorders, meaning they stopped making them, or they are setting up for the "new normal" pricing.

That's right, I can buy a .308 BCG for $120, but you can't find a 5.56 BCG for less than $175, as far as I can see.

Better have or buy all the spare parts you need, because if things go south, I think that may be the only way to stay in the game while retaining both kidneys.

Have you tried AIM surplus?

Or say, local gun shops? Sure these might be higher dollar than PSA and similar but... I can find MPI and Nickel Boron bolt carrier groups at 3 local gun shops last I went into them during the last week.

At least I can acquire spare bolts and parts for the bolt carrier groups for my two ARs.
Or...
"AX MOLEY" :rotfl:

@ajole

Semi-auto, no more M16 stuff unless u wanna pay

I have been buying spares like crazy. Yes, I have 4 complete 223 bcg, 3 charging handles, bunch of lower & upper parts kits, blah blah (can't say everything :p).

On the AK spare parts train atm - this week was gas pistons, rivets and front recoil spring guide rods. Last week picked up a CETME kit also from Sarco.

I am kinda expecting the worse. If the worse never comes then great - I just have a few more spare parts than before!!!

Prolly gonna get some AK mag base plates, springs and followers for my mags also, 10 rounders of course!!!

I have bolts, and BCG's I forgot about. I found 3 a couple of days ago in their PSA tubes. A friend who is an FFL had some BCG's for $99.99 the other day I piped up and said "I'll take 2!" I never did order them I was expecting contact from him that they were in. I don't know if I can get one now.

I got some Nitrided bolts for $15 right before the plandemic started. I have 3-4 Young MFR x39 bolts as spares plus some standard thin wall x39's.

I want a .308 BCG. Where is that $125 one at ajole?

I found one for $110, the Aim Surplus is a decent deal, but one is sold out, and
TNT: it went up a few dollars. They both include a charging handle.

$140

Glad to hear you guys are ahead of the game. My "spares" are basically in "spare" uppers, with "spare" built lowers attached. Like my .22s, I only have one....and about 60 spares.

I'll have to get one ordered next week if they still have them. My FFL buddy still has 2 BCG's for me. He has been out all week with the Wuhan.
