PSA AR for under $600 currently

Just passing this along since it's been a while since you could get a quality AR for under $600 but PSA has some crazy deals going on right now. Here's an example:

The 16" m4 upper for 270 (there are other options at this price)
Bolt carrier group for 130
Charging handle for 18
Blem lower receiver for 60
Classic lower build kit for 80

Tough to beat...

Yup, quite a deal. I ordered a middy 6.8 upper for $279 plus CH $18 with shipping - $325. I should have ordered mags too and ammo. Still looking for a BCG.

Same here, I ordered a pencil barrel 16" midlength upper during the $279 Labor Day Sale. I think the sale still is good and that upper is in stock. Alas the 5.56 BCG also was out of stock but I'll find one later.

That's a screamin deal for sure. Figures the deals would come when I'm retired and broke. Live and learn.

Makes me wonder

Why at a time when the public has gone wild buying AR-15s and other assault weapons would the GOOD FOLKS at PSA put on this great of a sale? I have bought from them before and the are good to work with and it sounds like I am going to their site now to order more. Man, my wife is going to be mad in the morning when I tell her what I did tonight. lol.

I feel your pain, and I'm not even retired - just broke

I was going to build my own upper, but after adding the cost of barrel, upper receiver, and miscellaneous parts, it's a win-win situation. Saved over $150.

Just checked again - prices are back up. I think there are one or two that are $299-$319. The one I ordered (6.8 SPC 18" SS barrel) is sold out and the CMV one is back up to $369.

Yeah the upper I bought went back up too. Yesterday it was $280, today it's $310. Nice deals while they lasted.
