All Lower Receivers will only be shipped to approved FFL holders. Please enter the name and phone number of your local dealer so that we can obtain their FFL.� Please do not enter your FFL's shipping address when checking out.� We will obtain that information from the FFL. •To expedite your order, please have your dealer fax or email their FFL to us at: 253-272-1168 or email@example.com
There will be a 30% restocking fee on all lower receivers returned because of failed background checks. Federal law requires that you be 21 years or age or older to purchase a stripped receiver or frame. If a frame or receiver can only be made into a long gun (rifle or shotgun), it is still a frame or receiver not a handgun or long gun. However, they still are "firearms" by definition, and subject to the same GCA limitations as any other firearms. See Section 921(a)(3)(b). 18 U.S.C. Section 922(b)(1) makes it unlawful for a licensee to sell any firearm other than a shotgun or rifle to any person under the age of 21.

FYI, I received a lower from the last batch @$200ea and I wish I would have looked at it more closely before my FFL did the transfer because I would have sent it back. There are several machining blemishes. I would say just be advised they may be rushing to get lowers done... I also received an upper and it was good.
Dudes...you guys need to follow AeroPrecision on Facebook. Their posts show them working around the clock to pump out AR-15 parts. They've added new staff and equipment to do so. They regret the prices on these, but sadly not everyone has taken Econ 101. Stop hating and realize we're in a f'ed up market right now.
Two quotes directly from their fb page for those without it: 1)
The issues our industry is facing right now are making things more uncertain than ever before. But, even with all of that going on, our goal is still to keep our prices as fair as possible for our customers.
After ramping up both our equipment and staffing, we unfortunately listed a price that was still not going to allow us to sustainably meet the demand from our retail customers, distributors and OEM contracts. And yes, you’re right, we did say that we weren’t going to raise prices. That unfortunately is just not possible for us to continue doing given the uncertainty in the market and the immediate demand.
We are working on a way to make things right for those who got stuck in the checkout function. We will keep you posted on what that will be as we work out the details. Thank you again for your patience and understanding!
2) Due to our rising costs from hiring more staff,working longer hours, having material expedited, and purchasing new equipment we had to raise our prices. We are sorry for inconvenience.
One more..seriously fellas, get with the program here. You can down vote me all you want, but you need to face reality:
Hi everybody, the Aeroprecision team here. Thank you to everyone for your patience as we work to get things back on line. We knew that there would be an increase in demand, but unfortunately didn’t realize just how big of an increase it would be. We’re working around the clock to make sure that we can still get you guys the products you ordered and at a fair price.
Our commitment to delivering the highest quality components is unwavering. To be able to adequately meet the unprecedented demand, and maintain the same standard of quality we hold ourselves to, we needed to invest both in increased staffing and more, higher-volume equipment. We are keeping the price of our lowers at $200 to help us meet both the demand of the consumer market as well as that of our OEM contracts. Even at this price point, we are still less expensive than the majority of high-quality lowers on the market today.
We are doing everything we can to ensure that you will receive the best product possible, and we greatly appreciate your patience and support as we get there. We hope you understand and can bear with us temporarily.
Please check back to the website throughout the day as stock gets updated. Thank you!
dafish said: Green for availability. Wonder if we'll ever see those $50 PSA lowers again.
Barring an outright ban. Choose one of the following: Excess capacity, shift in demand curve to the left, new entrants into the market (supply chain), excess profits, bumper crop, etc. Patience grasshoppers, patience.
Cashman said: This is also the company that is refusing to fill $80 dollar lower orders from Brownells that was posted last year. Good deal for a lower that's in stock, but I'll wait for another deal.
Still waiting on my Brownells order to be filled, but they seem to keep making more and selling themselves for higher amounts. Really pissed at this company. They should fill the back-orders then sell themselves for whatever price they wish.
a) Charge for shipping and do not disclose a shipping fee until you provide your contact details and continue to checkout. Why just not offer a free shipping for an item that they are selling directly from own webstore (bypassing dealers/middlemen like Brownells ) @ 3x price. And no free shipping and even no clear guidance how much it is going to be. So cheap...
b) Restocking fee for failed background check is 30% of amount of your order. So instead of charging for return shipping they take $70 for an item that they have no problem to resell. A guy is going to be already frustrated about the failed background check and on top of it they are going to hammer him with a $70 fine. Nice!
c) No clear date when item will be shipped. Site does not even claim that items are currently in stock. Just buy it now, and there is a fat chance that their "no-customer-service" will somehow explain you 1 month later that there is a back-order and a global industry shortage and they are giving you a favor for keeping you in the waiting list.
So here are our rules: 1) Your card will immediately be charged for the order to become part of the program. If you want your money back and want to back out at anytime, you will be allowed a FULL 100% REFUND without any penalty. If you back out though, you can't come back in and you don't get the "Deal Coin".
2) First ordered, first received. If you ordered first you receive your order first.
3) If we can't make it in time, then you get a full refund of your purchase price.
4) We will not ask for your custom EPS logo until your generic lower has been made. The lower can be laser engraved on both sides. DO NOT SEND US YOUR LOGO UNTIL WE ASK FOR IT !!! You will receive detailed instructions on how we need to have your logo sent to us with very specific requirements.
5) DO NOT HAVE A COPY OF THE FFL SENT TO US UNTIL WE CONTACT YOU AFTER WE HAVE MADE YOUR LOWER.
6) YOU NEED TO HAVE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING PATIENCE WITH US. We will be absolutely overwhelmed with responding to this offer.
Those can be very good guys, with very good intentions but it is hard to believe that if they can mill lower receivers by this time nobody else will be able do the same thing and sell stuff for about the same price w/out putting a pre-order.
The whole thing sucks, but Aero will send you one the next day for $210 shipped, I couldn't find any other decent forged lower for that price. You could turn around and sell it on gunbroker or armslist for $275 so it's still a 'deal'
vpr80 said: Ahhhh no. Unless you are an FFL or your FFL does not charge you anything, you will not make any money reselling these. My FFL charges $50 for the transfer so $260 to just get it to me.
I paid $20 for the transfer and $10 for the background check which made it $241 shipped for me, still $35-$60 cheaper than I could find a comparable lower for from the usual sources. The same FFL that I used was trying to sell billet lowers for $285 . I agree that the business practices here seem really shady, they should fulfill the outstanding orders first, but They were still the cheapest option for me at the end of the day.
$50 is actually GOOD in NJ. That covers the NICs, certified letters to the cops and the dealer's take. Most of the guys are $75 to $100. Now that is a ripoff. Can't say that I am happy about $50, but not much I can do.

Move to a state where they won't treat you like a criminal.
A friend and I bought 10 of these from Brownells in January for $79.00 each. Our FFL charges $10 for one firearm and $15 for multiple firearms in the same order/checkout. I saw the lowers were in stock and and selling online so I called Brownells and Aero. Brownells says they are getting lowers for orders made December 20th. I started asking on the Aero Facebook page where my lowers were since they have stock and are selling them online. I received a private email and I now I am assured they will be in by next week.
Hypnosis4u2nv said: I picked up a Spike's Tactical lower back in January for $170.. Considering how hard it is to get a lower, and a Spike's Tactical one at that, $200 for an AP is $50 more than I would pay in this climate.. In the end, who am I to say what it should cost if people are willing to pay that price or more for it.. It just keeps the prices high.
I also ordered several AP receivers (group of us) from Brownells back in December when they were $80. They can sell their receivers for $200 to help with their expenses as long as they keep sending a steady supply of receivers to Brownells for fulfilling orders..
Spikes seems to have many distributors back ordered and can't fill their orders right now. Palmetto has lowers in stock at least 2-3 times a week for nearly half the price of AP's or any other for the matter.
