Forget Wade's... I called Adventure Sports and they wanted MSRP for a Bushy lower also ($260 for complete lower minus stock). Is anybody going to be able to beat that price? I don't want to save money by getting a worse quality piece either but if there is something else as good that I can get locally for a good price let me know. Thanks guys.

ETA: Closest to Seattle Eastside area is best

Yeah, go to the funshow and buy a Mega from Iblis for 89 or so bucks.

See this thread..... with 57,005 hits!!!!


Great lowers, great guy, great price.

As to go from the eastside to Adventure, you may as well go to Puyallup and get a brand new one (or 4).

ETA: That 89 is shipped, so I *think* the funshow price is a few bucks off. Email him to see actual price.

Why not get a stripped lower from Mega Machine in the Olympia area. By a parts kit from Brownells and your good to go. I got my lower from Ameetec Arms in AZ $94.00 shipped, $20.00 for the transfer, $69 for the parts kit shipped, and $5.99 for the roll pin punches from Sears. I got the reciever assembly instructions from the forums here, and about an hour later I was done. All told I'm out $189.00 and I learned how to put it together myself. BTW this was my first AR-15 Reciever that I built.

Just an Idea.

I just bought two Rock River Arms lowers (complete) for $250 each at Discount Guns. They've been a regular at the WAC shows for years and just opened a shop in Totem Lake. They're awesome to work with and were willing to get me anything I wanted.

BTW - What was your experience with Wade's? Just curious.

Shoot him some mail....

I think if you do a search of the Mega's reputation, you will find they meet the above criteria.


One thread

Another one....

Puyallup gun show is the way to go. I got my MEGA lower from Iblis and I can say both the lower and Iblis are first rate. Buying face to face will save you the $20 or so transfer fee if were looking to order from out of state. Put that money to good use and buy some ammo.

PS. Next Puyallup fun show is Oct 9, you must be a member to purchase any firearm at the show (lowers included) but if you sign up at the show they will apply your entrance fee to the cost of your membership.

Yeah, I've seen a lot about the Megas... they have that funky kurling thing on the front of the mag well though!

Haha numerous things... I usually post here when they piss me off. Price is an issue too. I was in there recently and asked for price quotes on some Bushmaster stuff... he gives me the Bushmaster catalog and says the prices are all in there. I ask so, you charge Bushmaster retail price for everything you sell? He says yes. I think their MSRP prices are a bit inflated.

East Valley Pawn in Carnation is pretty good. I ordered a stripped BFI lower from him a couple of years ago. He charged me the dealer cost plus a $20 transfer fee.

Another vote for Iblis, and that Belial character, he is a good guy as well. Between the two of them, they are able to cover about everything I need.

Good prices, good service, good people, what more could you ask for?

I think you can order them without it if I remember right ? (that is a rare thing these days)

What about us North Sound types? My local shop (Kesselrings) doesn't have them, and the Monroe show is kinda lacking, if you ask me. Puyallup is ways away for this inquisitive squid to drive. Any love?

Kinda??? Have you been drinking again???

Wait....that was dumb question...

Where are you at?
Whidbey?
Everett?

Greenes Gun Shop will do transfers, but he is one of those fucks that will charge you either $25 for a transfer or 10% of the price of the gun if he has them in stock or if he is an "authorized" dealer.

There are a couple of FFL guys in the North Whidbey Sportsmans Club who will do transfers.
The gun counter at Ace Hardware will also do transfers.

Well, I was kinda looking to walk into a place that has them "on the shelf", as it were. No big deal, I guess. *shrugs*

I'm headed down to AZ on Thursday for 2 weeks, so I'll look into a transfer at Kesselrings when I get back. I will need to pick some ammo anyway.
Link Posted: 9/1/2004 1:18:48 AM EST
Ya gotta go south or to a gun show if you want that.
Avoid Kesselrings, they also do the 10% of retail for transfers.
Ammo is cheaper on line or at the gun show.
