    Notice how many "extra lowers that I just don't need" and ARs "I just built and don't need" and "extra PMags" ads there are? I don't remember seeing any "extra" anything before December:) Just an observation. It's nice to see that the guys with all of their "extra" stuff are "just trying to help" those that are looking for something by asking way more than this stuff is worth. I'm not looking for any of this stuff by the way and I know everything you know about capitalism and I care less. I have what I need. I just like reading all of the funny "reasons" for having to scalp this stuff to try and sucker some poor fool into paying big money:)

    For me, a "spare" lower would be the same as "spare" change. I just don't have any spare of either. That's also like saying I have "spare" ammo. Just a funny concept

    Still, I'd be happy to buy just one more stripped lower for $80.

    Things have changed in a hurry. All of the gun shops around my house have several ARs in stock for around $800 with no buyers. Other forums have many Pmags for $20 including shipping- sometimes less.

    Ammo and reloading stuff is still non-existent though.

    This repeats every four years, at least when the libs are in office.

    I used to work part time at a gun shop. The day after the Socialist in Chief was elected the first time, people swarmed the shop for ammo and guns. Prices have never really stabilized since he's been holding the Country hostage.

    BTW, if anybody has some "spare" .45ACP ammo at a reasonable price, please let me know.

    If anyone wants to sell a lower, I would even pay $90-$100. Otherwise, I will just wait until I can buy one online for that again. I don't care either way. Those are on the nice to have list not have to have.

    Exactly. I have payed $125 for a Spike's Tactical lower and would pay that again, but not much more.

    Sadly I think you guys will wait forever.

    With Obama for almost four more years, and inflation I think that those $90-$100 lowers will go for $120ish and those $125 ones will be $135ish or more.

    I hope I am wrong but that is my guess.

    Then I'll wait. I don't need another AR. I only wanted 1 more to SBR it.

    I have an AR15 but bought a Stripped Noveske Gen 2 lower last year for $200. I thought it was overpriced but want it for a future build. I could not imagine people spending 500-600 for one on GB. Maybe I am wrong, but th e old prices should be a back. There must be a glut of rifles and pistols that will all be for sale soon for folsk who thought this was the end of buying. Ammo, that could be a different story I guess, dont need any more though!

    Is there's such a thing as a "spare" gun? If I have a stripped lower then I have an unfinished project.

    At least now we can combine these "extra lowers that I bought a long time ago" and "I bought 5 too many lowers by mistake" with the "ammo I thought I needed and no longer need", the "willing to sell my extra ammo", and the "just bought and no longer need ammo for guns I don't own"
    I started this thread as sort of a jab at everyone trying to take advantage of everyone else. Sadly. I thought we were all in this together. We COULD be helping each other out; having each others back.

    I have one built-up 6.8SPC marked lower (with seven 25-rnd mags) awaiting my decision on a stock and a 6.8SPC upper to complete it, and another stripped lower with a LPK ready to install that I want to make into pistol then eventually into a SBR.

    I paid $75 each (shipped) about 3yrs. ago and just haven't gotten around to them yet... and NO, they're not for sale at even $275 a piece. ;)
