    I've been thinking more about this and I think I have talked myself into just getting some forged lowers. How many depends on how much cash I can scrape up by March 15th.

    My wife and I are going for 2 or 3, she wants a forged to put pink parts on and I want a bill it to set up for hunting, still debating getting that folder. Just not sure if I "need" 1.

    I don't need a folder, I just want it :)
    Already got parts trickling in for a pistol build.

    I have two folders coming in and someone could pretty easily convince me to trade one of them for a billet lower+other stuff to even out the deal.

    Good luck on everyone’s builds. I starting shopping around and it’s rough out there. 2 years ago I ordered a toolcraft bcg for 65 now it’s 145. Most stuff you can’t find in stock at all, had to do some digging and found some LPKs on Brownells, but can’t find any decent other parts like charging handle, uppers, barrels...

    Guess I have been spoiled, I was already set on ARs and spare parts so haven’t shopped forever but now I’m seeing the state of things trying to get parts for these builds.

    If I decide to get in, it would be one folder.
    I travel a lot with firearms and something like this would fit my style.
    Big thanks to @17 design for doing this.

    Haven't decided yet. Probably at least 1 folder, maybe 2? Probably a billet or two as well.
