MidwayUSA has Black Hills Blue Box 68gr BTHP on clearance for $23.88/50 (down from $36.49/50). That’s about the same price as Prvi Partizan match ammunition. I’ve used this stuff with great results.
Yes, it’s Botach. But I’ve had fairly good luck with them, and the holsters are only $25. If you see something you want, you should probably act fast.
The Citizens Armory has dropped their shipping prices – shipping is now as low as 70 cents for parts such as springs, detents, etc. They have low item prices, too – Glock 19 mags are just $20, for example.
I know, I know. Only a fraction of the people who read this blog live in Arizona. Still, given the current political climate, a lot of people are supporting Arizona. A quick-thinking entrepreneur has begun selling subdued Arizona flag patches, and I couldn’t resist buying one. They’re $8 shipped and available here. They have a velcro “hook” backing and also include a “loop” backing just in case you don’t have anything to stick the patch on.
Bravo Company has dropped the price of its upper receiver groups ($385 standard/$475 BFH/SS410), bolt carrier groups ($135), and is now offering cosmetic blem lower receiver groups ($250-300 depending on stock options. This means that you could build a complete BCM rifle, minus a rear sight, for somewhere around $830 plus shipping – $850 or so if you used the excellent BCM Gunfighter charging handle.
Worried about the blem being too “blemmy”? Well, although the ones currently for sale are marked with a “C” on the front of the magwell, the lower you see here is actually a cosmetic blem. That said, BCM weapons are made to function properly, and all other concerns are secondary. If you’re more concerned with cosmetics, you should probably opt for the more expensive, non-blemished lower group (or, frankly, a different company’s rifle).
I can only hope that blemished upper receiver groups will become available.
Separately, a new firearm-related company has just opened its virtual doors – The Citizens Armory offers small AR parts, and soon small Glock parts, with very low shipping rates. Tired of paying $8 shipping for a 75 cent spring that you lost during assembly? They offer small part shipping starting at $1.75. I’m told that they will soon offer other parts as well, but for the time being, I think they’re off to a good start in filling a hole in the market that hasn’t really been filled before. I’ve seen plenty of people complain about high shipping costs on tiny items recently.
Due to the introduction of the IMod, Bravo Company is clearing out the “old” Vltor Modstocks for $50 apiece. Considering that you normally see used versions for $75, that’s a very good deal. At this price, it’s cheaper than the Magpul MOE, but has storage for batteries and also has a QD socket for a sling swivel. They’re available in FDE and Black here.
