Complete?
If so, that's probably not horrible at current panic pricing.

I just called a guy I know that has some stripped lowers stashed and asked him to hold two of them, good thing I called him, he sold 40 in the last two days and only had 5 left.
Nobody has stripped lowers, so if you are planning a build, I'd say get it if it's complete, if you just want to sit on it "in case", well, that's your call.

I had already started picking up parts for a pistol and rifle so I just didn't want to get stuck with no lowers in Feb when I was ready to build them.
Some people need to read this book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1936976021/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_bs5jwbZH1GAZF

Figure that when more lowers become available at the retailers, I'm expecting to see at least a $20 jump, so that puts you at $100 or a little over for a stripped lower, add your parts kit and furniture and you'd be close to that anyway.

I think that's a bit high by about $45, but if you want to build later and can't find one, you have to decide if the $45 is worth it to have it now versus trying to find one later.

So, right now, if you could find the stuff, a lower would run you about $80 and a Palmetto special lower build kit would run you about $75, if you could get it. You need to decide if you want to wait it out or pay the premium now I suppose.
Sorry to muddy the waters with longwinded replies.

Honestly, I hate this panic buying, but I don't see it subsiding anytime soon even if by some miracle Boehner would come out tomorrow and flat out say the repubs are not going to allow any sort of ban, the buying would go on IMO.

Well, from my first build, I have about 3 sets of trigger groups, 2 pistol grips, 2 hand guards and about 3 sets of irons ( kept trying them out till I found a set I like).

Id really like an upper, but everyone looks sold out now. The guys at the store had heard that uppers will be hard to get as vendors are trying to drop their inventory before any ban occurs, but that if I wanted, he was getting sets of lowers. Im hoping that uppers and accessories will still be available. Id hate if they make us go the NFA route as I would then be paying the stamp on three ARs.

Im not so sure it would be panic buying this time out as much as it is facing the grim reality of OhBlowMe's Amerika.

There are tons of lowers for sale...question is how much do you want to spend on those lowers?

I saw people on sniper hide selling stripped lowers for $200 per lower.
