They are probably sold out because they were selling them for ~$80 a month ago. I purchased a one-piece carbine length and after I tried to install it myself and realized I couldn't get it tight enough, I had Paul torque it down. He is one EXCELLENT person to deal with. I received a phone call from him on a Saturday morning regarding my first order and whether I really needed to spend money on an item he didn't think I needed and after I ordered my FF tube, he called again to see how I liked it. As soon as I told him I still couldn't get it locked down (after he sent me a replacement ring because I scratched the first one) he insisted I ship it to him. Well, I did and I forgot to include return postage. I hadn't heard from him and 6 days later I received my upper, with the work done AND an extra 'goody' that you'd spend a small chunk of change on. I do NOT recommend purposely trying to forget to include postage like I honestly forgot to do. Paul is super cool, super professional, and he OBVIOUSLY IS NOT OUT TO JUST MAKE A QUICK BUCK !!!!
By the way- I made my first order over the internet on their site. To him, I could have just been any old schmuck. He actually took the time to call ME on a Saturday morning to see if he could be of any help. I can't believe he's such a great guy- I'm not sure, but I'd have to say he's the owner- I have never seen ANY employee anywhere try so hard to please the customer.
