Anyone know where I can find some stripped RRA or Stag lowers in MD. I'd prefer RRA but I hear good things about Stag.

The only places I know that stock stripped lowers is Atlantic and The Gun Rack. Last time I checked Atlantics were DPMS and Gun Racks were Bushmaster. Thoguh it's been a while since I checked.

Of course you can always get Fulton Armory lowers from Fulton Armory.

Best option is to find a FFL that will order one for you (remember you are limted to 1 a month unless you're a registered collector).

I don't think they do that.

"Trust me, I'm going to build an hbar with this"

Just get a stripped lower from Fulton Armory. They're as good as RRA,BM or Colt. Check the Gunshow in Frederick on 1&2 April. I'm sure that Fulton will be there and you can comparison shop too.

Not legal. The HBAR rule only applies to full rifles and they have to marked 'HBAR'.

3R can order RRA(got a A2 lower from them), I belive they run about $115 + shiping/state pd fee/taxes.
Link Posted: 4/3/2006 11:09:54 AM EST
Who is 3R and where are they located? If I can get a RRA stripped lower for $115 out the door, I'll buy three of them today. (collector)

Forest may or may not be correct! As I understand it...in order to comply with the MD law, the "GUN" need only have HBAR stamped on it somewhere. So in theory, if someone stamped HBAR on a lower receiver, that lower would comply with the law and be considered cash and carry.

Of course, no one does that because HBAR is a barrle designation. But we can always hope and pray that some manufacturer get wise to this and starts doing it.

Dont the Colt HBARs alread come with the lower stamped HBAR as well as the barrel? I seem to recall seeing them in pictures like that. So that would be cash and carry correct?

Can you buy a stripped lower from Colt?!? I think not since they only sell to military and law enforcemet! Sounds good in theory, but you and I can only buy colts as used guns and even then we pay a premium. @#$% That!!!

I don't about from Colt - but I have seen a stripped lower for sale in a Pawn shop over in Glen Burnie (off of Richie highway) Though that was many years ago. Surprisingly they also had a Colt match trigger for sale (in new packaging meant for store display sales).

A&D Pawn... They are a Class III dealer and usually have a few things in stock. No RRA's though, because I already checked.

I would like a RRA because M&A Parts are selling RRA mid-length kits for $425. This would make for a nice easy fit since the whole gun would be a RRA. Plus, I could have it for right around $600.

That's cheap stuff right there! Fantastic price for a shooter gun.

buying guns in maryland is all about knowing the right people. There are ways to legalaly do things that the public does not know. As long as you know the laws and regs, then I wouldnt worry.

I bought three of those Fulton Armory lowers mentioned above during the group buys and I have assembled them with Rock River Arms lower parts kits (one with the match trigger) and they all assembled perfectly, and they all work fine with any upper I plug in.

Some of my upper halves are Bushy, Colt and a couple upper halves I had put together from parts, I have no f'n idea who made the upper itself. They all work fine. Most I do with any of them is to drop in an AccuWedge, but even a factory Colt I have rattles without it . . . .

If you want to see "Rock River Arms" on the side of your lower receiver, that's one thing no one can argue with. If you want a shooter, you're not stuck with any certain manufacturer to match up to anything to achieve an "easy fit". You can find a decent price on any reputable lower and go for it with no problems as long as that particular lower is in spec and not defective.

Here's the thing with Fulton... They wanted $159 for a stripped lower at the gun show this past weekend. RRA's can be had for that price and everyone in the country knows who they are. Fulton Armory is a local outfit and there is no way in hell that I am going to pay them the same money that I would for a Rock River. For that matter, I wouldn't pay them as much as I would for a Stag, Olympic or a DPMS which could all be had for less than $150.

I'm sure they make a nice product, but the bottom line is that they haven't earned the right to charge that much for a lower yet. They are way over priced for a no name outfit!!!
Link Posted: 4/5/2006 11:27:19 AM EST
I've got a Fulton Lower. I'd pay that for a Fulton lower over a RRA lower any day (though frankly any lower at $159 is overpriced IMHO when I can order Stag lowers for about $100).

Two cool things going for the Fulton Lowers is they are roll stamped Savage MD, and the "US Rifle" is kinda cool IMHO. I'll have to double check but IIRC the Fulton's have a low shelf (like Bushmaster) so if I decide to get into NFA stuff it's going to be eaiser than with a high shelf RRA (this may or many not be important to you - if you're not into NFA toys then it's meaningless).
Link Posted: 4/5/2006 12:35:57 PM EST
Fulton has a good reputation. At the same price, I'd have gotten a Fulton.

Online pricing can be rather deceptive. The $100 Stag lower is probably $110 after S&H. Unless you have a FFL, you'll need maybe $30 or more for the transfer. Comes rather close to what you'd spend buying from a local gunshop.

I KNOW what I paid at my FFL for my Stag lower and I can assure you it wasn't $159...

(oh and if your FFL charges more than $20 for an under $200 item - find a new FFL).

3R is in Frederick on Grove Road. They are in the back of a gunsafe store. Did a transfer last year for me of a couple of RRA lowers at a good price. Great to deal with though only open Wednesday evenings and on Saturdays. Phone is (240) 529-4936.

1) Nobody here is a bitch. Try to leave the ghetto at home when you enter, I, for one, would appreciate that.

2) That's a pretty disrespectful and offensive "thanks" to a bunch of guys that just took a few minutes of their time and tried to help you, whether you agree with the suggestions or not.

eshell,

1) I didn't realize that my mother was a member of this forum!
2) I didn't think anyone else's mother was a member either!
3) Did you have a suggestion about where to find RRA lowers in MD since that was the post topic.
4) "Bitche's" was ment as an endearing term (watch Chappell much?!?)... If I was trying to insult ANYONE, I would be much more ruthless!!!
