Wasn't really sure where to post this. Black Rifle, For Sale, or Longarms. I picked longarms because if your not in the market to buy something you prob won't check the items for sale section. This deal is once every two years so I wanted everyone to know. If it's wrong lesson learned.

Got a call from DPMS today saying they had a ton of scratch and ding 5.56mm lowers that didn't pass quality control. If you want one let us know and we will order it. The man we talked to today said they were not bad but not good enough to leave the floor. The price is $75 plus $15 transfer. We will DuraCoat them to cover any scratches for $25 which is much cheaper than our normal price.

Thats the problem....Its like a bargin bin...You dont get to pick. They just send what they grab. Thats why is so cheap. I wish we could pick them out. Its just a ar-15 stripped lower with DPMS name on it. I already have nine people that want them. When I get them in I'm going to do first come first serve to pick out the pile.

We use Zinc Phosphate which gives a grey finish. The turn around depends on a couple of things.

1. How busy we are and where you sit in line.
2. Do we have to disassemble/ reassemble.

If you bring it to us broken down it only takes a couple of days. If we have to give it to our gunsmith it may be as long as two weeks for return.

Right now we couldn't even touch it until the first week of Jan. Hope that helps.
