Looks nice... makes me wanna give in and get a a kali AR
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 6:30:29 AM EDT
that looks great!

Now, where the hell do you guys get your vulcan lowers from? I have a friend who wants one but every dealer he talked to either said they won't order it or that they have to check with the CA DOJ on whether it's "truely" legal.

One dealer hold him "We're not sure if the DOJ approved AR15s are legal in CA"

I have a friend that is an FFL he ordered them for me. I think there are dealers in Fremont and Placerville that carry them.

If you are from the bay area try Irvington Arms in Fremont off of Grimmer Blvd. He usually has them for $265 for the stripped lower.

You can try Sonoma Firearms too. That's where I got mine from. Paid $250 plus taxes and DROS.

Looks surprisingly good.

I still need to get off of my ass and build mine
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 8:08:12 PM EDT
Looks about 1000 times cooler than any FAB-10 I have ever seen.

Looks really nice..

I need more disposable income!
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 6:25:58 PM EDT
Damn I really need to get one. I got a FAB10 but i would love that one. Where did you get it? Does your FFL friend have a shop? if he does, do you think it's possible for him to order me one?
Link Posted: 8/31/2005 12:04:49 AM EDT
Nice looking gun. I have a buddy who just finished building his AR-15 with a Vulcan lower. Every time we go to the range he gets harassed by the range master, because of the fixed magazine even when the rifle is broken open. I like the look of the Vulcan but don't necessarily like the crappy follower in the magazine. I personally have a Fab-10 and my next build will be with a Vulcan with some modifications to the magazine.
Link Posted: 8/31/2005 10:39:56 AM EDT
So I have seen plenty of people here posting that Vulcan=Hesse=crap, but then, some people swear that Wolf ammo will tear up your AR but others have had no problem. I won't spend the money on a FAB, but am interested in checking out the Vulcans. Can someone point me in the right direction? (web site or other info?)

TIA.

Thanks, but I want to get some more info on these before even considering buying one. From what I have been reading, they are not too great but have not heard specifics on what makes them substandard.

Could you help me find one? I've called Irvington Arms and they're all out and don't know when more will be in. Thanks

Wow I wonder what's up they normally have like 15 in stock.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 11:57:43 AM EDT
He said he had 6 on order, but the company was dragging their feet and they didn't come in when he expected them to. Any other places around the SF bay area that have them in stock? I think I'll try calling Trader Sports later today to see if they have any.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 3:26:07 PM EDT
Well I have an update now for the SF Bay Area. Irvington is out, expecting more any day. Traders is out, expecting some next week, and Tabors doesn't carry them. Hope that helps!

Hey guys, FNG here. Hey Jack, do you have the phone number to Traders by any chance? I live in Marin and don't have a Sonoma phone book handy. And one more thing, do you know what they're charging for the Vulcans? Thanks!!

What's FNG? Trader Sports is in San Leandro near Oakland, right on the border. You can reach them at 510-569-0555. They quoted me $395 for the lower which makes me think it's a completed lower not stripped. Irvington quoted me $265 + fees for the stripped lower.

For some reason I though you meant the "Traders" in Sonoma (at least that's what I've heard guys call it). Thanks for the heads up though, and San Leandro isn't too far away. But $395! Ouch. Seems like a big mark up even the lower is complete. Besides I already have the internal parts.

And I hate to be a PITA (pain in the a--), but do any Bay Area guys here know where Sonoma Firearms that USMCCPL is talking about is, or what their contact info is? If not no biggy, I can just call information tomorrow when I have a some time. Thanks again yall. And that's a sweet looking weapon you got there Pieeater. hug.gif

I think Sonoma firearms is in Placerville. Also I would get a stripped lower.I'm going to change the mag out in mine to the 10 rd bushmaster. Dealer price on the stripped lower is 163. I've heard Vulcan does not make the lower that they are buying them.[Dont know if this is true or not]
Link Posted: 9/3/2005 8:12:57 AM EDT
Sonoma Firearms is in....Sacramento Really. Here is their number 1-916-761-0209. It is not a store front. About 45 min up the road is Newtown Firearms in Placerville. It is a storefront and normally has a great selection. I highly recommend them. Their number is 530-626-9945.

Yep. That turned me off from them. When I called I thought it was a store, but really run from his house, and he was all about ordering things. I kinda wanted to see what I was buying first.

Why would rangemasters harass him for having a rifle that looks like an AR-15? I guess I'm not understanding what they could be looking down on.

Most ranges during a cease fire require you to drop the mag and lock open the action. The problem with the Vulcan is that it's fixed so you can't drop the mag and rangemasters think you're an idiot that can't follow directions.

If it's a real issue (one that cannot be explained to the rangemaster within a few seconds) then just pull the rear pin and open the reciever during a cease fire.
