pretty much said what I wanted to in the title, looking for places online to order a few armalite bolt catches without paying $11+ for shipping on a $11 dollar part. its a stupid little OCD thing I have and I want to run these on two of my matching builds cause they look more "billet." I thought I had ordered one through a small online store called delta 3 tactical, but I got a standard one that isn't like the one pictured and didn't want to bother with a refund or a return since it took over a week to process my order and longer to ship.

Looks like that's a pay-to-play part.
They're either out of stock or in stock with high shipping rates as you found out.
Best I could find was at 762 SASS....$11+ $11 + $9 S&H

That's as good as it gets.
They were out of stock this AM.

They sure are a good looking catch. Best thing to do is pile up some orders so paying the shipping doesn't hurt as much. Another little part I really like is Spikes billet mag release button. Not fancy, but just like the Armalite bolt catch, it looks a damn sight better.

thanks for the leads guys. I checked DGS before and they were out of stock and shipping was up to $10 a while ago through them if I recall correctly, but this was back in January. glad to see its a little more reasonable now, just put the order in for two of them & one is back ordered. hopefully it won't take too long to get the other one in, glad I have overtime on this paycheck lol. damn near $30 for bolt catches I don't even really need.....I love and hate this obsession sometimes. devinsdad, I too have a penchant for the spikes mag buttons. I am glad aim has them in stock regularly and has free shipping. ive got them on most of my builds.
