I was wondering about your AR kits. I see on the website that you only offer Post-Ban kits... I was wondering if the company has an offer for an M-4 Style Pre-Ban Kit?
Do your kits come with pre-assembled upper assemblies, or is it all just a bunch of parts?
I know I could build an M-4 Pre-Ban style carbine by ordering the necessary parts and a completed upper, but it'd get VERY expensive because I'd have to order:
1.) Lower Reciever Parts Kit $59.00www.dpmsinc.com/10Expand.asp?ProductCode=LRPK-1
2.) AP/M4 Telescoping Carbine Stock $99.95www.dpmsinc.com/10Expand.asp?ProductCode=CS-AP4
3.) AP/M4 Upper Reciever/Barrel Assembly $499.00www.dpmsinc.com/10Expand.asp?ProductCode=BA-AP416
4.) Removable Carry Handle $89.95www.dpmsinc.com/10Expand.asp?ProductCode=FT-DCH
That's $747.90 WITHOUT the lower reciever. AND the barrel isn't Chromelined?
My friend bought a DPMS lower from you guys for $154.00, so the rifle would come to $901.90.
Is there an option to get a barrel chrome-lined?
This friend will be ordering parts to finish his stripped lower within the next 3 days. He is using a DPMS lower, but preferred finishing it with DPMS parts for uniformity if he can get them for a decent price. He was just saddened when I told him the price it'd likely cost him to get the DPMS parts, and that it wouldn't have a Chrome-Lined barrel.
Is there any way to get a kit like this with Chrome Lined barrel for cheaper than the price of building it from parts?
