Does anyone sell lower parts kits without the pistol grip and screw. I need a lower parts kit, but already have an extra grip.

None as far as I know, but you aren't going to be saving a whole lot if you could, probably only $5 or $10...

Yes, [url=www.olyarms.com]Olympic Arms[/url] does but like AK_Mike said, it will only save you $6.

It isn't the money. Yeah right, I'm a tight-wad, penny pinching bargain hunter. [:D] Of course it the money. I was raised by very thrifty (read: cheap) grandparents who showed me how to strech a doolar. I don't expect to save a lot of money. I just don't see the need to pay extra money (in any amount) for something that I already have, and haven't used in years. That's $6 towards the $84 RRA lower I'm going to buy. [:D] Thanks for the info

I can appreciate that attitude, az-gunner, after all that's money that could be used elsewhere. I personally ended up with a BAG full of spare grips, but I just sold them off. Problem is, at $5/grip, minus shipping, there is not a whole lot of return. Rather than determine who's kit you are going to use based on grip option, you may just want to sell the spare grip off. The price difference between kits from different mfg's is usually a LOT more than $6. Rock on! (and don't forget pictures after you get it built)

m&a sells lower parts kits w/o grip but i dont think they sell complete kits minus the grip. ive got a couple of spare grips too but like mike said its not really worth it to sell because of shipping.

I recently bought an ASA lower parts kit on fleabay sealed in the bag with no grip. (I don't know about a complete kit) I already had a spare. Steve

I edited the initial post to specify a lower parts kit. I was sooooo focused on saving my $6, that I over looked the availability of a rife parts kit. I went through my misc parts bag today, and found that I have a few of the parts I need. I may just buy the missing components. Of course, I'll compile a parts and price list. Then I'll compare it to the price of a lower parts kit, to determine true value/savings. Man, I need a supplemental income. Then maybe I won't be so cheap.[:D]

dont bother trying to pick and choose somponents of a low parts kit it'll come out WAY more expensive. ive already thought about that one. just accept the fact that you have lots of "spare" parts should something go wrong.
