The Lantac straight-pull AR15 upper shown below is on consignment with Howell Gun Works, so the sale would be done directly through them (you can find it on their Facebook page); however, I can help answer any questions that you may have here.
Lantac Straight Pull AR15 Upper: $500
Lantac 18 inch 1:8 barrel chambered in .223 Wylde:
chambering allows you to shoot either .223 or 5.56
specifically designed for manually cycled straight-pull rifles (no gas port)
Lantac SPADA-M 15" forend (M-LOK)
Lantac side charging upper receiver
Lantac Dragon muzzle brake
the brake is not pinned since this is not a semi-auto upper
Lantac Enhanced straight pull side-charging BCG
you manually cycle the action - similar to a bolt action but much faster because there is no vertical movement required - just pull the side charging handle back to extract and rechamber)
the BCG is specifically designed for manual cycling - there is not gas key on the carrier
Lantac Raptor charging handle
provides the option to cycle the action like a "normal" AR if desired (it's much easier and efficient to use the side charger)
The cleaning out of my workbench continues with a bunch of various AR parts that I'd like to find new homes for. Please let me know if you'd like any additional pictures or info on anything (everything comes as shown - I don't have any of the original packaging for this stuff).
All prices are for a face-to-face sale but we can work out shipping cost if needed (I'll ship in a flat rate small or medium box). I'll take 5% off the total price for anyone that takes 5 or more items from the list. I’m located in the Princeton/Hillsborough area:

PayPal F&F preferred or add the appropriate percentage if you choose G&S (net $80 to me)
The item is cross-posted so the first unconditional "I'll take it" wins
Well, It would also be the distributors who are willing to pass on the prices to PSA...
PSA is big... but they are not huge by any means, they just know how to market well.
Smith & Wesson does have the package deals but let's be honest... if they are willing to buy 1,000 or more guns... shouldn't they get a better price than a dealer who can barely buy one or two?
Best thing for the brick and mortars are to concentrate on what PSA can't do... local transfers, unique offerings for their clients.
Then they just need to wait until the gun fears spike up again.
You mention that you are going deer hunting in PA...... but it seems more like you are fishing in NJ.
If you really have a legitimate question, I recommend rather than asking a bunch of strangers online, you should call the NJ State Police Firearms unit and ask your question.
