  • Well all of you motivated me.

    Started ordering parts for my ar pistol. Have the lower and upper stripped versions. Just ordered a ballistic advantage 10.5 m4 profile barrel still looking for the rest of the parts. At the pace I get things done it will be done sometime about 2031 lol!

    With the availability of parts, you may well be 2031 completing it! LOL!😃!
    'dawg, this is the craziest mess I've ever seen.
    I ordered a stock screw from Numrich Arms on 6-20-2020.
    I finally got it 7-25-2020!

              If I don’t have what I need by the end of august I will cancel the order.

                What chambering did you pick for the AR? I've enjoyed using the .300 Blackout and it's been over a year since the 5.56 upper has left the safe.

                  'dawg- I have ordered from Midsouth and Midway USA since then, and both orders came in only slightly delayed. I suspect Optics Planet thought they could get something from a supplier and just let their mouth get overloaded. I won't be doing business with them again.

                    'dawg, don't give up amigo. I do have a few bits and pieces laying around. Let us know what you need.

                      5.56 chamber. I figure it’s the most available and I’ve been running up the discover card lol!

                        I'm not a big 5.56/.223 aficionado, even though my last two builds were both 5.56/.223. Well, one is a .223 Wylde and the other 5.56mm.
                        Because of the availability of 5.56/.223 ammo, I will always have one. It just makes sense(?)!

                        5.56/.223 is just a wise choice, regardless of the cartridge's shortcomings.

                        Same with the Communist 7.62×39. Buttloads of ammo available and it's AR platform friendly. (semi auto .30-30 anybody?)
                        I'm not so sure that I won't eventually build a 7.62×39 just because of the "ammo factor".

                          I had orders in with Red Hawk Rifles and Midway as well as sending an email request in to B&C for some replacement action screws. All three went in on a Sunday and were in hand by the following Saturday.

                            The AR "parts" market is currently overwhelmed. The delay in getting my stock screw was due to COVID-19, not availability.

                              No doubt about that, just a little drift as to Optics Planet’s shipping compared to others in general I guess. Definitely need some patience in general these days.
