Picked up a couple of AR parts kits on GB
« on: November 27, 2020, 12:13:12 AM »
So, while browsing for SKS stuff on Gunbroker and searching one of my go to parts kits sellers I ran across 2 AR parts kits that were sitting there fairly cheap. I haven't been into ARs for a while, but threw them onto my watchlist anyway and continued my search. I get down to the final hour and the prices were still good so I went ahead and bid, subsequently winning both parts kits. Funny thing was I didn't win any of the SKS stuff he had listed.
After paying for the items I went on the search for a couple of cheap stripped lowers and ended up with 2 ATI OMNI Hybrids from Classic arms for $70 OTD each($15 less than Anderson lowers) Only thing I need to buy to have both complete is a roll pin for the bolt catch, which I can get from my local hardware store.
First one is a PSA mid-length HG w/16" 1:7 5.56NATO HBAR barrel, The second is an AFCOM upper w/16" 1:9 5.56NATO fluted stainless barrel. Not sure I like the green Charging handle on the second one and thinking I need a Magpul grip to go with the buttstock on it as well. Also, I have a PEPR mounted tactical scope I may put on the second one in lieu of the irons then add a micro halo red-dot on top.
Anyway, here are a couple before and after pics of each one, I am pretty pleased with both of them;

A can of matte black spray paint will fix that charger.

Or... Toss it out and ask for a two for one trade. Somebody with a green machine will go for it.

Yeah, I'm not diggin' the A2 grip either. A local guy has a Spikes Tactical grip(Magpul clone, but with weird scrolling in the grip for the "non-slip" part) and a black CH for $15 that I could buy, but I have since dropped the irons and installed the 30mm Tactical scope(1.5x4x36) so looking at a UTG Ambi Sniper's grip Extreem Tactical has on sale for $13.95 with free shipping. One thing though, the scope makes the green CH not look so bad, kind of like a "pull here" type thing. chuckles1 chuckles1

You got all that, barreled uppers, for $70? I giving you money to shop for me like P32 if so. Jeezus, where am I when this goes on.

Great find if so.

It's always good to have at least one AR hanging around  thumb1

LOL, I wish I was only into those for $70 each. Just the Lowers were $70 each after shipping and FFL transfer, which is still cheap. Over all, let's just say I'm into them for pre-COVID prices.

Aw, c'mon Bob, I WANT to spend your money. I'm running out of my own! rofl rofl

Neat part is, I had communicated with the seller that I was trying to buy multiple items he had listed(he had 3 SKS parts kits as well). I ended up losing out on the SKS items, so when I got back to him for payment on the 2 AR kits, we got to chatting and he not only waved the 3% CC fee, but gave me free shipping as well. He is now in my favorite seller's list.
