You could get two lowers for the price of one Spikes lower.

If you are ordering it from spike's and that cost included shipping and transfer fees then you are in the range there since they sell for $99 on their site, but if it is a dealer with them in stock, not really.  

The deal from AIM surplus is sick, sucks they are out.

all the shops here charge $30 for a transfer, so if i get the sold out one from aim it would cost me $110. so depends how much your local shops charge for a trasfer. i dont think $130 is bad considering there sold out everywhere.

Hell no! AIM $80 shipped + FFL fee ($15 for me) + 0 tax. AIM gets Spike's stuff back in stock regularly, so wait a week or two and you'll likely see more uppers and lowers.

No; it is not a good price; walk away and get it from somewhere else, cheaper.

I picked up a Spike's lower with the LPK installed at a gun show for less than that –– $130 is too much.

The ones i get from my local shop are that price. He orders straight from spike's and just adds his transfer fee. I don't think it's too bad of a deal. Plus i don't have to wait on shipping. There are cheaper options out there but i'll continue to support my local guy after what he did for me yesterday.

Yep.

depends on shipping, FFL, and tax if applicable.



$130 OTD is on the high side of the acceptable range for a standard stripped post-ban lower around here.  If this is the case for you, Spike's is a known commodity so it may not be worth the time and gas to drive all over to save $20-$30 on a lower.




If that is the price before shipping, FFL, and tax, it's a bit steep.
