Local stores with AR part ?

Recommended Posts

Can ya let me know of local NJ shops, specially in  eastern/central or PA area, that sell lots of AR15 parts. Need to find ar barrel and gas system for a good price and don't want to wait for it to be shipped plus I love buying local but I don't have too many choice where I live.

That's a common problem. I've all but given up trying to get lgs to carry even basic parts that could be needed due to a failure. Spring kits, bolts LPKs etc. Only stocks seem to be around. 

From their perspective however, it's an almost infinite number of combos, choices, that's a lot of money tied up on castle nuts, fore grips  and gas tubes. Throw in Pic, keymod or M-lok and you're up to your neck in inventory.

Look at it this way, most LGS do not have evening hours but one day a week.  I ordered parts last Monday online, shipped Wednesday arrived Friday.  Cabelas order on the weekend, processed Monday, ship Tuesday, here Thursday if coming from Triadelphia, WV distribution Center.

It's not exactly local to you, but at least it's a straight shot across 195.  Howell Gun Works has a respectable inventory of AR parts.  HGW is about 30 minutes from me and it's always worth the trip.

Not too far from me either I'll check them out thanks

Depends on what you need. For AR accessories, HGW has a nice selection. Lower parts kits, they've usually got a few in stock. Individual parts...I needed a roll pin for my trigger guard a few months back. Wound up going online. I don't blame them, of course. Stocking every little part for an AR takes money and space, and individual parts are probably not something that will turn over quickly. It certainly isn't profitable for them.

    • I dont think anyone needs Trumps coat tails, they just need a strong message people believe in.... like Trump.  Too often these people just expect a vote becuase a D or R, or because they're not the "other guy". Im done voting that way.  Besides Murphy is a much better politician than Jack, the guy never ran for office before and won too...  no one ever heard of the guy before he showed up here. Murphy made this state his bitch with zero politcal experience.   
    • To help buyers and sellers alike, I've gone to AmmoSeek and looked up the current pricing for the most popular pistol, rifle and rimfire cartridges.  All ammo (unless otherwise noted) is grade A factory new (no reman)  brass case re-loadable with a full metal jacket.  This list does NOT reflect the lowest prices, nor the highest.  The sky is the limit for the greedy exploiters, and lower prices can be found on grade B and remanufactured ammo.  This guide is intended to show the current low/high average bracket price ammo may be obtained.  It does not mean it will be in stock.  Your best bet for finding and obtaining the lowest prices is to create an account at several on-line resellers and put yourself on notify lists.

    • The above is why Ciatterelli needs Trumps coattails so to speak.  It may not gain him many republican votes but its going to cost him quite few IMO.
    • I won't be voting for him.    As odd it sounds, Murphy has helped me financially in this state. I can't stand Murphy, I hate the guy with a passion... yet I have zero reason to vote for Ciatterelli... not a single reason.    Which means I probably just sit out on this one.
