I'm getting set to build my first AR. The kit's in the mail, but I can't find anyone locally to sell me a lower receiver. They all say something like 'we don't carry those, and we won't deal with them so we won't order one in for you.' The only guy I found around here wanted to sell me a DPMS for 180, and wouldn't even look for a RRA or even a Bushy lower.

So, can anyone either give me some other types of places I may check out, or a link to a transfer agent list or something similar?

I live in N. Idaho and am willing to travel to eastern WA, eastern OR, west to central MT, and northern UT to pick one up (areas I normally travel) so if any of you know a good dealer who can take care of me in this area, it would be much appreciated.

Check the Equipment Exchange link at the top of the page. I've seen RRA stripped lowers as low as $85. Check with [url]www.gunbroker.com[/url] or [url]www.auctionarms.com[/url] for a list of FFL's in your area that will do a transfer.

Yeah, I'd seen them for that low too, so his $180 was a bit much. I could pick up 2 RRAs at that price for as much as he wants for that one stripped lower. Thanks for the links, they were very helpful, exactly what I was looking for. J

Some of the vendors have some FFL transfer dealers lined up, there are also other sources for information.

Quantico Arms has stripped Eagle Arms lowers for $85 still. Great quality and good people to deal with. There website also has a list of FFL's. It shows 3 in Idaho. Sorry, haven't looked at a map of Idaho in a long time so I don't know if these are close to you or not. The one's listed are in Boise, Idaho Falls and Meridian. Good luck finding a dealer. Scott

Thanks for looking those up for me, but the closest is a 6 hour (one way) drive. I could get to the Mega Machine Shop faster than that. I've been wanting to head over to the coast for a while now, maybe I should just make the trip. J
