I'm need some parts to finish up two builds. A 10.5" 300 BLK pistol for me and a 16" 5.56 rifle for my wife. Im excited to get these finished and use them but dont want to find out I could have saved if I waited. I dont remember what sales were like last year. Im needing the parts below.

2 - YHM BCG $116 each
1 - Rainier arms select 16" barrel $260
1 - YHM 5160 rail $195
1 - mid length gas tube $13

Will I be able to get good deals on these or should I just go ahead and order now?

I say if you are set on specific items then it is gonna be a longshot. If you are more flexible in the makers of the parts you have a better shot at getting a deal.

I usually look at the big holiday sales as a way of starting a new build rather than finish one as you are more likely to score deals with a open mind.

If you just buy the parts now you can spend black Friday shooting them instead of being on the computer.

Yep, in the grand scheme of things what's $20 bucks? Buy what you think you want and go shoot those things!

Second thought is order now and get it while its still in stock, after Black Friday who knows about backlogs?

Than when ads come out order something else

Buy what you need now. Buy what you may or may not need, but want, during the Black Friday sales...

If you aren't set on the YHM BCGs you'll definitely get a better deal on other BCGs for black friday, hell you could probably find a better deal on them now at some places

Not really set on anything. These are my first two builds and I want quality parts. YHM BCG matches my price point and they are a quality company I've heard of. I have got most of my parts from PA. Not always the cheapest but I will pay an extra $10 when I order and its to my door 3 days later.

Anyone have the radical firearms 16" match barrel? Would it be similar to rainiers select? Its $60 cheaper and will ship faster.

IMHO you could do much better in the handguard/rail dept....

Prices are pretty low at the moment, not sure if you're going to see much difference on Black Friday this year.

NIB BCG: $79

Only a few hundred left.

have you checked out the Midwest Industries G2 rails? great for the price. it's nice and small, if that's what you like. I prefer the G1 stuff due to my ham hands/sausage link fingers LOL. my wife really digs the G2's though.
Link Posted: 10/16/2014 10:28:52 AM EDT
I like the midwest industries rails you suggested. Will have to run in by the wife and see what she likes better. She is concerned with it being to big and heavy so thats why I was looking at the lighter, slimmer designs. Thanks for the help.

Apparently they raised the price to $99. I still got one last night for $79. So it just happened.

how can we tell you if your finances can handle the current pricing or if you need to wait until a historically great sale price?

Its not whether I can afford it, I could place the order to finish them both up right now. I would rather not go ahead and order it and then see I could have saved $50 - $100 or whatever if I would have waited. I know it wont be a huge difference but still thats some more money to go towards ammo, optics, beer, or whatever.
Link Posted: 10/16/2014 3:17:03 PM EDT
Would you shoot a lot between now and black friday? If not, then I guess you save up and wait.

Otherwise, $50 here or $100 there is nothing compared to the cost of having fun shooting. Besides, if I remember correctly the deals last year really didn't help me any.

that was the point I was trying to make.

if that is a lot of money to you, then wait, but in the big scheme of things.. I spend at least $100 every time I step up to the firing line. (that's only 8 - 30 round mags of 5.56)

12" G2 T series is 14.4 Oz. with barrel nut. I paired it with a spikes 14.5 LW barrel (22 Oz.), and my wife loves it---light as hell.

if my math is correct, that's about 1.5 pounds for the barrel and handguard.

I just ordered a bunch of parts for a lower price build and went with the ALG Defense EMR which was only $105 from joebob's. Haven't received it yet but seems like it would be a good bang for your buck.
Link Posted: 10/16/2014 6:46:44 PM EDT
FWIW, I put the ALG 13'' rail on my girlfriends gun. For $140, they are pretty damn nice rails. Check out AIM Surplus for the BCG, the 16" Radical Arms barrel is fine for now. I think that's what I got for my BIL on his birthday. Buy some parts now, wait for Black Friday, order more then, use spare parts you don't want to use on your build for trade fodder or let them multiply into another gun.
