My 3 RRA lower receivers for 1 Colt pre ban lower. I traded it to B & J guns as per Hiram Rangers post a few weeks back. They are a site sponser, & for 10 bucks shiping on my end, & a $25 fee to my gun range for the transfer I now have 3 for 1.

If you didn't trade because you were waiting for a report, now ya'll have no excuse.

Nice! I got 2 Bushmaster lowers for 1 Oly preban lower right after the ban ended.

Nice work! Talk about a win-win. I think it would be hilarious to flood the NY market with "pre-bans" from the rest of the country! Then they might even be inclined to change the law...you never know...

I think it's a great way to help everyone involved. truly a win, win, win situation.

Flooding the market is a good idea. Now how do we get folks to do it?

Well I ordered the parts for 2.5 lowers on Tuesday. At least the parts I needed to put them togeather.

Pins, sprinds ect. $87.00. By the way I ended up calling in my order as RRA web site sucks big time for ordering all the tiny stuff. I told them that as well when I called in my order.

I wonder if it (my order) will come.

I was nice. I traded 2 lowers of old and bastard pedigree for just enough money to buy 2 new DPMS lowers.

[Rant on]
Allright, so I ordered my lower receiver parts from RRA about 2 weeks before Christmas. I tried to do it via their web site link on ARFcom.

If you have ever tried to do the same, order all the parts for the lower off their site, you will understand my frustration. The long list of parts wouldn't let me add everything at once. Oh no, it kicked me out to the main page after each part was added to the shopping cart. This really was stupid as I was ordering springs, pins & many small parts all numbered off a scematic drawing. I gave up after a while as I couldn't keep track of where I was with my order.

I ended up calling my order in, & I told the salesman their web site sucked for ordering. I asked what my total was so I could subtract it from my checking account & the guy couldn't tell me. I ended up calling back a few days later to find out what the total was.

Fast forward to yesterday morning, I called to check as to why I hadn't gotten my order yet. I talked to a female sales person, who couldn't tell me, just that it was probably that they were out of the parts I ordered, & there was probably a back order on some of my parts. She said she would call back within 24 hrs.

It was about 31 hrs since then so I just called back to re-check what the hold up was. I talked to her again, & she asked me for my ph# again so she could get back to me. I told her I gave her my # yesterday, & she said it was with my question & had gone to someone else to see why I hadn't got my order.

Then she checked real quick & told me they didn't have my ph#, & the credit card # they got from me was wrong when I made my order.

I have thought all along I got dropped because I told the salesman his web pg sucks, & I told the sales lady I was thinking of doing a post about it.

It really chaps my hide that this kind of stuff goes on, & I will in all likely hood order from Bush Master from now on, or even DPMS.

I realize it wasn't the worlds biggest order, but I still feel let down by their service, & will do my best to avoid them for all future orders. If I can get "it" somewhere else I will.

[Rant off]

I'm not trying to be rude, but the fact that you are gloating about purposefully being disrespectful doesn't make your side of the story look to bad.

Many companies choose not to work their employees over the holidays, and this is a more than likely reason the parts you ordered have been delayed.

Just my two cents.

I wasn't rude or disrespectful, I told him matter of factly that the web site sucks for ordering parts. I would think it would be something they would like feedback on in order to better serve the customer. I still placed my order with them, & like is said it was 2 weeks before Christmas. Not Christmas morning.

Order from Legal Transfers (Pete) on the EE and never look back.

Who orders RRA parts straight from RRA?

But, if you insist, then you need this pn AR0120X under the topic "Lower receivers and parts kits" not under the topic "Lower half parts".

You were trying to get them one item at a time.

Where else would I order them? I just thought it would be the simplest way to order them.

I was mostly concerned with the FCG pins. I wanted to make sure & get their's since I have 3 of their receivers.

Go here, and save yourself some money in the process. That's where I got mine.

Again the problem is, I don't need all the parts so I had to order indivual parts so I wouldn't end up spending more than I needed, or having parts i didn't really want.
