I have some stripped lowers and would like to buy a flattop kit to complete a rifle in 5.56 or 223. Any recommendations on where I might look for good pricing on this?

Try Model 1 Sales for starter. Rock River arms also sell a kit like you want. There are actually too many that do to list them all.

Del-ton sells kits that include everything except the stripped lower. And you can customize it from the factory...

Re: Best pricing on AR15 kit

Your best bet is to get with RRA (Rock River Arms) or one of their many stocking dealers about a complete kit. RRA makes good quality products and stands behind them. You can try direct from RRA, but you may run into a long wait-time due to backorders. If not RRA direct, the try one of the following:

http://www.ar15sales.com/ - Legal Transfers, LLC (in addition to RRA, they alos sell Stag Arms complete kits minus a stripped lower for great prices)

http://www.rbprecision.com/ - RB Precision (they used to carry complete CAR A4 kits for $650 with a chrome-lined barrel)!


Also, if you can stand the environment, check out the Equipment Exchange on AR15.com. You'll be able to pick up everything you need over there for a good price.

Good luck!!

Del-Ton is GTG. They always promptly answer to question, and are honest about shipping times and stock information.
I'd steer clear of Model-1 Sales, as they don't even answer to email, <span style="text-decoration: underline">when you are trying to buy something</span>. Think about when/if you need post sale support.
PK-Firearms is another one GTG. Fast shipping and good prices.
ADCO is another very good place to shop (Steve is a great guy to talk with), although it has a narrower selection as far as simple parts.
Rainier Arms is another one which I was pleased to deal with.
There might be many others, but the above are the ones I had a direct experience with.

Re: Best pricing on AR15 kit

Ive had good luck with my Black Thorn kit. the trigger sux but i figure for the price i could buy a rock river nation match trigger group and the gun would still be less than a model 1 kit.

as far as im concerned all of the cheap rifle kits out there are all the same, Their not perfect and ur gunnna have to spend a little money getting them the way you want them. Might as well buy the cheapest one you can find and make it run.
