We are a mere three weeks or so from the demise of the Assault Weapons Ban. Yipeeee!!!
Unfortunately, there are a few shooters who reside in states with permanent state AWBs, and NY is one of them. While the rest of the country will revert to 'preban' status and will again be able to buy new 'preban' type AR's at real prices, this option will not be available to New Yorkers.
I would like to purchase a decent verifiable preban lower. I know a ton of scalpers are going to want to respond, willing to do me the favor of selling be their pre-ban for the lowly sum of $500 to $1000. Please do not bother responding.
However, if there is anyone interested in sticking it to the gun control crowd, I have a proposition. Sell me your decent verifiable preban forged lower on September 15 and I'll buy you a new forged lower.
The EE lists a whole bunch of various lowers for sale: Stags, Megas, Ameetec's, Rock Rivers, etc etc at decent prices. RB Precision carries RRA stripped lowers for $95. So call it $125 for a lower, and kick in another $50 for shipping/FFL. I figure anyone should be able to buy a new lower for $175... I kick in another $25 for the pain in the ass factor and call it $200 even.
I know some are going to gripe about me being a cheapskate. You are right. I am a cheapskate. No one is going to "make money" on this deal. It's about sticking it to Schummer and Hillary and the rest of the demoncrats in NYC. I get a decent used lower at a decent price and you get a new lower.
There is an additional motivation: I already have a Colt H-Bar and a RRA Mid-length. Both do everything I want them to do. However, I want to build a lightweight with a collapsable stock for my daughter, now seven, to learn on. I figure the collapsable can be extended as she grows. I need a Preban to do this in NY, but I cannot and willnot spend $700.
