I just got back from Camp Perry. Armalite has a box full of "2nds"

Lots of AR10 stripped lowers take down pin hole "oversized" $130 something
I tried one of these with a flatop upper, not a problem, not sloppy by any means!

box of cosmetic defects upper receivers flat tops and A2's $100 something (cheap!)
(I found a small nick on the brass deflector of some)

A box of "DEA takeoffs"(I think) stainless steel barrels .308 (need crowned) $150 each

A box of $50 carbine freefloat tubes with rails on the end

They also had some AR10 carriers cheap also (some cosmetic thing)

If you have been wanting to build/get an AR10 this is the way to go. I bought a AR15 stripped lower last week for $77(had to hand fit a hammer and trigger in it [cavity was a thousandth or two narrow] but it is good to go now. You can get some of the more expensive parts(lower, upper receiver & barrel, and bolt carrier for a few hundred dollars) It is definately worth a look!

Also DPMS has 30 and 20 rd magazines for $10 each new
RRA & Springfied Arms weren't open. I think they open tomorrow.
(Someone was looking for M1 bayonets ($18each or 2/$30)

Check it out guys!

Hessian, you are killing me...

Thanks for the heads up. I'm leaving for Camp Perry in less than 2 hours.

Just got back from Perry. They had plenty of the AR-10 lower blems for sale. The price today was $123 each but I bought three and they applied the 10% off coupon even though it wasn't for sale items, so the cost came out to $110.70 apiece. I tried a bunch of takedown pins and none seemed sloppy. I've seen worse slop on some AR-15 receivers that I have. Overall a great price - get 'em while you can!

I need to make the trip.

Dammit!

Does anyone know? Is Commercial Row open tomorrow, Sunday? I cannot pass up the opportunity to put a couple of AR10s together. I can't...

Yep. Take your credit card.

Brilliant marketing strategy if you ask me. Get more AR10s out there to sell parts for!
(I do like the way mine shoots!)

Well, my trip to Camp Perry yesterday was successful...



There are my two sequentially numbered AR10 lowers, Armalite hat and water, and my M15A2 NM with green furniture.

I may be heading back up there. I got to fondle an AR10B... it may be calling me...

ETA - they are out of the $77 AR15 blem lowers... you snooze, you lose, I guess.

Looks nice. Now that we all have a bunch of lowers, does anybody know what a complete upper sells for (just your basic 16 or 20" flat top)?

Do you know what was wrong with the AR-15 blem lowers? Just curious as the takedown holes really did not seem too bad with these blem AR-10 lowers.

Eddie,

I think the AR15 lowers were blemishes in finish only. I was looking to pick up 3 or 4 of those, had they not been sold out of them.

Did you see the AR10 blem uppers they had? They were not complete uppers, just the forgings. I am also trying to figure out what I need to put one of these together.

Up for another road trip? I may take an afternoon off this week and head back up there.

To complete the upper you need a barrel, gas block/front sight, gas tube, barrel nut, handguards/FF tube, and ejection port cover assembly. Using a dedicated bolt is a bood idea, but not mandatory.

To build an AR10 lower, you just need an AR10 lower parts kit ($95 from ArmaLite). All of the lower receiver parts are interchangeable except for the bolt catch and pivot/takedown pins.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks Slash.

I've not ever put an upper together. I buy them pre-assembled. It always looked intimidating.

Looks like a trip back up to Perry for parts kits is in order.

Piece of cake. I just assembled an upper in the time it took for the pizza guy to deliver my supper.

I have all the tools needed, it your close to Findlay and need some help I'd be glad to lend a hand.


Don't forget - The blem AR10 lowers are a steal at $123.

If anyone wants to part with one of your ar-10 lowers just send me an IM.

So how long does this devil-created-to-make-me-spend-more-money-that-I-dont-havefest go on? Any chance I could get up there next Sat,Sun, or Mon?

This weekend would be a great time to go. High power will be in full swing, and all of the EBR purveyors will be open.
ArmaLite is there thru 8/15. A lot of the other vendors will be leaving after this weekend.
