    3 Aero gen 2 stripped AR lowers to go with the various orphan uppers I have purchased over the last year. Managed to scrape up an LPK and a half from parts laying around.

    Brownell's is blowing these out at $48 a piece. Use $2 fillers (I got MTM ammo boxes) and use code NCS for $15 off 150 and free shipping.

    The integral set-screw and "MORE FLAIR!" are definitely improvements over any other $50 lower on the market.

    3 boxes of Win 38spl fmj 50 rds $9 each and 3 boxes Win 38 spl +P jhp $11 at Garner Walmart,
    the man said I could buy as much as I wanted.
    On my way out the woman in yellow vest asked me where I got the ammo from,
    told him the older gent took care of me, he opened the glass case, she thanked me.
    I wonder if he was to limit to four boxes.

    Prices are now on clearance yellow tag, so ask them to price check the ammo you like.

    Ammo. On clearance. Walmart.

    But I have no idea how much. Bought some from three different stores, but two separate trips (on the way to work, and again on the way home) to the same one.

    Some combination of:
    9
    45
    40
    38
    300

    Always! It's fine for a few hundred rounds then has a few issues, then is fine again. Not a big deal, I'll probably just get the gun replaced soon.

    Or maybe just the barrel. Or the upper part....as you can see I have decisions to make. lol. I'm having a hard time letting it go, because when it's good, it's SO good! LOL.

    As Button Pusher said, you paid good $ for the damn thing, make them fix it!

    There is no reason any reputable manufacturer would allow a product that does not work!

    If you got it for $60.00, that might be one thing, but I will bet you paid at least $75.00.
