CORE15 Lower Parts Kits

I have two CORE15 Lower Parts Kits available. I figured I'd offer them here before I put them up on Gun Broker. $145 each, $5 to ship if you don't want to pick it up.

If you are part of the Quentin Defense group buy and buy these, I can install the kits for you if you'd like.

....how cheap are you getting your LPKs for??? that's 80-90$ minimum above (inc shipping).
Plus the extra cost is paying him to sacrifice what he has on hand that will be unreplenishable for the next 4-5 months! components are going to be scarce to nill because manufacturers have kibashed individual sales so all parts can go to their factory builds. If he said 200+ like on gunbroker that's a diff story. Price is reasonable for him sacrificing his place in line to someone who needs it more than he does and wants to pay for it. "Something is only worth as much as those willing to pay for it."

You have no idea what I paid to get these. I grabbed 3 at an inflated price, just to get at least *one* for myself. If you don't like it, don't buy it. They will simply be posted up at Gun Broker where people are still (unfortunately) paying more than this for them.

Sheesh, and this coming from a person who was salivating at $4k for his rifle...then, as usual, failed to follow through.

the difference is im a private seller, youre running a business. if you paid more than $100 for them I apologize otherwise i dont. there are still ethical shops out there allowing you to backorder at a reasonable price

backorder is great... with a reasonable lead time, no one is offering anything reasonable for lead times

you want something now youre gonna pay more, plain and simple.
and youre right he is running a business, and is in it to make money so he marks up stuff above what he paid, thats how you make money

at least if i were to make a deal to buy a kit from him i know he'd sell it to me when i got there...

Actually what happened that pissed off peeps with CTD was they cancelled guys orders who bought at 13$ then jacked the price to 60.


That's what got my panties in a twist was that being such a dick move.

Actually, I paid for these out of my own pocket. Nowhere do you see Rick's tactical white logo plastered all over this post, nor did I mention Firespeed.

Actually, they first posted all PMAGs at $99, then dropped to $60, and I believe down to $40 after all the backlash, *and* they capitulated and pulled all guns for sale. So it's even worse then canceling orders and jerking people around. They won't get any more of my money.

sounds like you had a deal and backed out but whatever, LR set his selling price, agree to it and buy it or dont agree and dont buy, its pretty straight forward.

this is all simple supply and demand, you want something thats scarce its going to cost you, NO ONE can deliver on anything right now and likely wornt for some time to come. do i like everything getting more expensive, no i dont, i have 2 choices though sit and wait for prices to come down as supply catches up or pay more to get what i want now. setting a price taking an order then retroactively changing the price isnt right but thats now whats happening

so if someone makes you an offer, and you tell them "give me the weekend to think about it" you consider that a done deal? strange way of doing business. The buyer didnt have an issue with it and asked to keep him in mind in case I changed my mind.

I dont know about your "side sales" i just assumed as a consumer you guys operated firespeed together. As a businessman maybe you should have clarified. I'm done with this thread anyways this is retarded.

Still wondering about the "as usual" comment too but you can go fuck yourself in the mean time.
