JSE has about 50 DPMS LPK's in stock for $60 each.
they also have some rock river bolt carrier/bolt groups for $130. sort of the going rate--but at least their in stock. last time i checked they had about 30 for the ar-15.
i thought there might be a few gunco members that might need some of the hard to locate stuff to finish up a build.
i think the parts shortage may be fadeing a little bit. i got a retail barrel the other day and a bolt carrier bolt and now there are a few retail LPK's. so it is getting a little better to finish a build without getting raped over some little bitty part.
barrels are still OOS at all the less expensive places thre are a few around above retail though.
not exactly the good old days. but at least it ain't hi-jack price city.
