    Unhappy CDNN has a few lowers--

    CDNN has a few stripped para lowers --


    i wouldn't buy one though

    $499 plus shipping FOR A STRIPPED LOWER!

    this gets CDNN on my shit list for gouging ---

    i can understand a 30% mark up--hell even 50%

    but this is about a $400 overcharge for a $100 lower--

    Look closer, they are single digit serial numbers. Below, they also had the first serial numbered PTR rifles. I'm guessing the boss grabbed these out of the first shipments they got back in the day and held onto them. While a collector might be interested, the sad thing is some yahoo wanting to make a run of the mill rifle will snap them up.

    being a low serial #-- WOW --where do i send the money!--

    in all seriousness that low SN makes them worth a whole $20 more than a regular para lower.

    and that is a hell of a long way from $499

    the Para AR lowers are serial numbers #2 to #9. The PTR's are the first 50 produced. Not sure how this is gouging. As the kernel said - it would be nice if a collector got these, but in this market......

    Well - if they sell - then they were worth that to somebody.

    IIRC, somehow the first Winchester model 70 got out of the plant. Decades later some rancher with a beat up model 70 in his rear window rack noticed it was serial number 1. Winchester paid him his asking price of 5 figures without hesitation. At auction today, 6 figures easy. The first guns produced are often retained by the maker to be made up as presentation pieces to Presidents and other VIPs. Low numbers matter to collectors. A lot.

    Now, whether or not an AR15 or HK variant can command a premium price from a collector depends on whether or not someone wants one bad enough. They sure aren't a 1936 vintage Winchester! However, in today's panic buying spree, I bet the lowers are already sold.

    Us folks who can machine stuff like this one just don't see paying that kind of dollar for these. But, if you have money to just burn, knock yourself out.

    But then again, many of us have various ones from alternate suppliers which we picked up years back. It is freaky thinking of the individual sitting there wanting to assemble their first AR15 in this kind of TIGHT market.

    A $500 stripped lower might look real sweet to them now?

    yea -- there might be a collector that will think it is worth $500.

    that being the case i think i'll make a lower give it a negative number --like

    -000 000 001 and ask about $15, 000 for it --LOL!

    hell i got this dope addict cousin that thinks he can sell one of his coon dogs for $15k --so far he ain't sole the first one--LOL!
