    Seriously, We are approaching about a year of time and most retailers are out of AR-15 upper receivers (stripped/complete) and most do not have any complete bolt and carrier assemblies either. Anyone have any info other that "it's supply and demand?" I refuse to believe at this point in time supply and demand is the only limiting factor in the availability of these parts. It's either hoarding due to fear of an Obama second term, a problem at the forgeries, increased government sales, etc etc. Most likely a combination of things perhaps. As time goes on I'm doubting supply and demand is the only issue. The forgeries and machinists should have been able to make a dent in the tremendous back log for these parts. Any info anyone has would be appreciated. Thanks.
