Yeah Phil, that link is even a few bucks cheaper...I didn't really shop around for the "best" price. I've not bought anything from Primary Arms that I can remember.

I've purchased quite a bit from PA over the years, from AR uppers to optics and parts. Never bought ammo from them. They are quite good to do business with and they'll price match other sellers on the Net for in stock items.

This new site Phil posted Primary Arms May save you a few bucks over PSA. I checked both sights by placing two adapters in each sites carts. Parts, Tax, Shipping, the Primary Arms was $13.00 cheaper than PSA.

I guess it鈥檚 really a blessing that I didn鈥檛 embrace and jump on the AR platform bandwagon like most other shooters. It鈥檚 not been that many years ago that for Christmas I purchased my first AR a simple Bushmaster from Acadamy Sports for the sum of $700 bucks. Inventory of AR rifles at every gun shop was over flowing, ammo was cheap (compared to now) talks of banning the evil rifle was picking up steam. Didn鈥檛 really want one but didn鈥檛 want to be told couldn鈥檛 own one!
HA, unless I forgot one now I have 6. Who would have thought?

The dreaded Black Rifle Disease can be as bad as Kimber-itis.
Every free American should own at least one AR.

When our special needs governor Jay inslee decided he was going to make black rifles banned I told the old lady to look and see if they had any lowers at our LGS one day when she was going in to pick up her Glock. Once she came home she was caring two bags full of lowers, she bought every single one they had left. I think we now have 16 or 17 AR platform rifles and pistols. All his ban did was make us spend a bunch of money. 馃ぃ

Our Governor ran campaign ads with a shotgun on his lap, and a pickup truck for hauling illegals back to Mexico.

He's still a swampy [email protected]鈧琫r, but he knows his base.

Back in the late 70's and early 80's, if you had an AR and around $80, you could buy the six needed parts to convert that little critter to F/A for some real fun out in the desert. The AR shortie (M4) was the usual starting point. Of course you needed an auto-sear, but many of the machine shops that were staffed with 'gunny-guys' here had the print to make the elusive little thing in-house. The only needed part you couldn't make was the tiny spring, which of course was very easy to obtain. (Of course, our shop never made any.......)

Gunning for running desert jackwabbits dodging through the sage was great fun with a 30-round mag, out of hearing range from anyone. We would go through about 1,000 rounds a day each back then when you could buy arsenal ammo for cheap in the military 840-round .50 cal cans, reload it even cheaper. Alas, the joy of F/A now is both expensive and a real hassle, but I sure remember that period with great glee.

It's no wonder the AR platform is the most used in the USA still today. If I need a lower, I sure know who to contact should they become scarce (go ninja, go!)

You can buy the entire fire control group from Delta Team Tactical for about $100 including the auto sear.
Sear is twenty bucks.
However, if you drill the third hole in the lower for the FA retaining pin, you are a felon, and will get loved tenderly by the FATF.馃榿

You guys don't be fooled by Arland's modesty. Within minutes he was installing aftermarket triggers in his ARs like a pro!
