However, as luck would have it, selling my Nintendo Wii and this seasons gun show at the New York State Fair Expo building coincided. So, I had about $300 to stretch over millions of dollars of possible purchases.
$100 - Double Star AR-15 lower receiver. (Double Star - it was the cheapest stripped lower at the show, AND it has my last name in it. Cool.)
$45 - ATI Strike Force stock for my Ak-47 rifle. The stock is folding and adjustable, so it needs to be drilled and pinned to be neither before I can mount it, but it was cooler and cheaper than other AK stocks I have been looking at.
$54 - DPMS Panther Arms AR-15 Lower Receiver Parts Kit. The trigger, hammer, and parts for the stripped lower I bought. Once this is installed, I need a butt-stock and an upper receiver for my rifle, and I will have a full gun. I'm excited to be building it from parts rather than buying it complete. (And also, this will save me about a grand.)
$30 - 2 AR-15 polymer,30 round, pre-ban magazines. Some nice, light, high-capacity magazines for my future AR-15 rifle.
$18.75 - 1 British, pre-ban, 30 round magazine. This one is made from steel and is quite a bit heavier than the polymer mags. I bought it instead of another polymer because variety is good, and because with 2 different types I have a better chance of one type working well in the rifle.
$15 - 2 - 50 round boxes of Wolf 9mm Luger ammunition for my 9mm carbine. (My other project rifle that is almost complete, it just needs a barrel shroud.)
So, less than $275 spent, and I'm well on my way to completing some new guns. Yay! Today was a good day.
