I was so smart. After obama's re-election, I knew that there would be a run on black guns, so I bought an AR lower. Smart huh?
Well... Not so smart. In my ignorance, I failed to understand that there would be a run on lower parts kits also. Now I am having trouble finding a quality parts kit.
Does anyone know where I can find a quality AR-15 lower parts kit at a reasonable price? ty

Good luck. Try the DMPS, it'll work just fine, and if they have an internet waiting list you'll be in line.

Checked out DPMS site and they have california kits only. Why, I don't know. Good prices on complete lowers though. Nothing for me. Shucks. Any other suggestions?

Can you believe I found these on ebay! Not that I would buy there, but knowing how unfriendly to guns they are, I was surprised.

I don't know if these are "reasonable" or not, but there's a bunch of them.

poppalee,

Here is one complete kit from DPMS:

http://www.amazon.com/DPMS-AR-15-Lower-Parts-LPK/dp/B00A723AQC/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&m=A3DWC57Y3CLBF3&qid=1357510848&s=generic&sr=1-4

Bushmaster has the individual parts but they are sold out of the kits.

You can also buy a re-build kit with most of the parts then buy the rest of the parts individually from Bushmaster.

Best.

For my .458 SOCOM build I used CMMG. Which was like $50 or so and it's pretty good. Fresh out of the box trigger pull is 5.5 pounds and we figure she'll settle about pound lighter after the break in. Now the price might've gone up but I like them.

Ordered a complete two stage Bushmaster build trigger for $205 (with shipping) so they can be had. Since not too many folks are going to drop that much coin for a trigger for a regular AR.

I reckon the Bushy two stage number cost more than the AR receiver .

Not these days, I have seen stripped lowers at $400.00 plus on the auction side, with bids.

Best

Take a look at these auctions on the otherside...

I saw DPMS LPK at the gun show for $100. "Reasonable " for me would be under $60 which isn't going to happen anytime soon. I may have bought the last ones Midway had @$58.

The only difference between a standard kit and a California kit is the magazine release. Instead of the standard button, they have a bullet button magazine release. It shouldn't be too hard to find a replacement for a standard button because many in CA have an extra magazine release buttons when we had to switch it out to a bullet button release when doing our builds.
