    Haven't been to a gun show in 4-5 years. I'm looking to stock up on 3 or more lowers. Are there deals to be had or no?

    Have you not shopped online? Plenty of $25-$30 lowers, for years now

    I heard Macy’s gives them as a gift with purchase of an Old Spice limited edition assortment.

    After shipping and transfer fees these $40 lowers become $70 real quick.

    I am not but I’ve bought plenty of lowers that ended up being free, or $20 in them. After a fee.

    psa sells 3 lowers with a pistol for what just the pistol is worth all the time. Buy it, sell the pistol and have $50 tied up in 3 lowers.

    half the lowers in my safe, didn’t cost me anything .

    I am not an ffl. I am the gun couponer

    I should not have inserted myself into this discussion. AR lowers don’t interest me. I am a failed gun store owner who is still a little bitter, apparently.

    Since this is supposed to be a Salisbury Gun Show thread, I will probably be attending the Salisbury Gun Show on Sunday morning. I will have a 1978-vintage, pre-safety Marlin 1894 in 44 mag for sale. $550

    Went by the show first thing this morning. PSA stripped lowers for $60. Repent Arms was selling complete ARs for $375. Pretty dead this morning, but I was able to sell both Colts in the 45 minutes I was there. Pretty groovy. I’d wondered why Cubrock hadn’t posted in this thread. He didn’t set up at this show, thus time.

    Yeah, it was dead. The dealers I spoke with said they did little to no business yesterday to speak of and none today. More lookers than buyers, including myself. I DID see a stainless Marlin 45-70 new in box on a table in the back and seems it had $1100 on it and some older guy bought it. I had just said that won't sell...WRONG. Other than that, not much was moving. In other news, we got some good rain.
