$89.99. These are the SAA brand, that is the online company.

We will have ours again (the Tacoma and Lakewood physical stores) once the ATF approves the variance for manufacturing... eventually.

We bought a 3 pack during their "holiday" sale and feel as if we got a a 3 pack of "blems". The machining is the worst I've ever seen especially in the "web" area between the pistol grip and stock screw down. Usually you'll get a slighty raised strip with edges on both sides. These 3 lowers have a single edge (smooth on one side) that is quite prominent. When SAA called us back, the acted like we were on crack and told us they had sold 1000's just like this. This edge is sharp enough to cut your hand when you shoot. This is the last order the business will ever place with SAA. Lousy attitudes, excessive price gouging, sketchy quality... no thanks.

Well, it won't get deleted here, but I will say this.

Try contacting Aero Precision in Tacoma, as they are the ones who make the SAA lowers I believe.

Are you a dealer then? Reselling stripped lowers? Not assembling them into rifles right... unless you're an 07 FFL.

A person has the right to buy these and then change their mind and sell it. This doesn't bode well when a company won't stand behind their branded product... bad form

Who said they aren't? A reply from Unicorn, who works at SA&A with questions pertinent to the transaction would seem they are at least talking. We only have one side of the story.

He stated that it will be the last purchase his "business" will be making. If he works for an 01/02 and is just re-selling them stripped fine. If he's working for an 07 and assembling then, then fine. But if his "business" is an 01/02 and assembling rifles, then I'd like to know to avoid any legal issues for our sister company or parent company. Perhaps the name of this business?

As to gouging... let's go look at a dictionary for a minute, then realize that nobody forced him to buy from SAA... he could have bought any of the hundreds of other lowers that were around at the time, at half the price, with absolutely no waiting, backorders, or availability issues...
Unfortunately, while those lowers might not have been perfect, and I know what he's talking about... the line wasn't even, though I don't know about actually being able to cut skin.... it was the norm for that time period, not just from us, but from many of the machine shops making lowers for the industry.
