Weird! Hard to tell where they're coming from. I'll pass on the lower and its inspiration. :p

Can you imagine in 50 yrs someone getting on a firearms forum and asking the value of one of these. "all I know is it was my great uncle's not sure where or how he got it"

Honestly I'm surprised they're not sold out already...

Stupid CT and their AWB no hope and change lower for me!

I'd order a dozen just for good measure if I could. Funny and fantastic marketing on their part!!!!

Do you need to do the FFL stuff for a stripped out lower?

Yes. The lower is the item with the serial number, so that makes it the gun.

I don't even own an AR and I'm tempted.

I had been comtemating building an AR for myself, but I keep going back and forth on what features I want and don't want. I had just taken a casual glance a the different lowers out there, but this is seriously tempting. I just love the hope and change on the selector.

They wont sell out for now. As they are just now making them.
They will make enough to fill all the pre-orders then sell a few after that.
The "might" start shipping on the 15th of Aug or before. Ya never know.

I saw this thread the other day and dragged my feet to place an order. I guess after clicking on the link and not seeing it any longer they're not taking orders anymore.

I'll have to call them. Wife wants one....:)

Sure she does ;)

In all seriousness, I just went over there and talked to them on Monday. The manager said they intentionally only put 3 digits in the serial number because they wanted to keep it a limited production run (only 1,000 minus the ones they use for testing). He also said serial numbers will be sent randomly so if you were the 1st to order you won't necessarily get a low serial number and vice versa.
