Of ALL the AR receivers out there, I would not build on an Anderson. Sell them, and get something better (which would be about any other one out there except polys).

And yes, PSA has the best deals on AR parts and ammo.

Thanks from Snyper762

Learning from past experience... I have enough of pretty much everything to get me by. Have been working on reloading components the past year leading up to the election... having lived through the bullet and powder shortage 4 years ago.

Thanks from hardheaded

80Percent Arms makes a nice lower if my measurements are correct it's Milspec by the blueprints I have found on the internet. In conjunction with the jig I believe it can be finished in a couple hours.

Well, I have enough guns too but....I've been wanting to build a .308 based AR for some time now. Ran into a deal on a new Aero M5 complete lower, the seller had it priced the same as Aero, so I did it. Now to acquire the parts to build the upper I want. Also bought some ammo from SG but that's it.

I'd rather have more ammo then guns. I don't understand why people buy a bunch of guns but no ammo for them or they wait until a panic to start buying over priced ammo.

Buy it cheap stack it deep. Hey don't buy that Hirtenberger it's crusty old surplus save it for me!

Thanks from hurryinhoosier and hardheaded

No AR purchase, but I did finally get off my butt and resupply my primers, powder, and projectiles. And while I was at it added some more magazines across the board.

The first thing that will be unable to buy is the 30 rounder.
Get mags.

I was trying to panic a month and a half ago and get a PTR-32. Oh well. I think I'll try to gin up some panic during the lame duck session. Trying to sell one of my motorcycles too.

I just can seem to make myself want to buy a AR when i don't need it. I have lots of 308 and a m1a. I would rather collect WWII/Cold War era firearms.

I will continue to buy ammo though.

Thanks from MuppetMeat4Me

Got more guns than I can shoot now, I'm up to 6 ARs alone because I got the building bug, and would like to sell a couple, but they're boat anchors now Trump got elected (lol).

I was concerned about ammo though, and bought 4 cases of 7.62mm ball a week prior, then I noticed a few days before elections SG upped their prices by .03 cents over what I paid a week ago. I'm not worried it'll get used....

The days of the $2000 ARs are gone... for now.

I picked up 2 Anderson stripped lowers, 2 complete Anderson Lowers and one case of ammo a day before the price went up. Plan was to sell the lowers and shoot the ammo. Now it look like a couple of builds will be happening.

I bought a couple lowers back when all the candidates first came out. That gave me plenty of time to buy all the parts and assemble them prior to possible craziness.
I have four years to buy a couple of rifles and pump out as much ammo as I can.

No panic here. I had a though or two about selling the VEPR K, but I think I will keep it as a hog hunting rifle.
