I did just to confirm the listed timeframe and that's when the owner told me how long the real wait was.

I managed to find a NIB OEM tube, so I have that and springs/follower from CC on the way. Along with the sling, it feels good to be done building this. Stranger, I'm taking your advice and NOT adding

Mikey D - I have the speed bar from Dave's Metal Works.  I actually bought it from Redneck Tactical which still cracks me up today.  It's a "precision" bent piece of metal that is redneck genius.

Does anyone have a lead on where I can get a seven round tube these days? I have a CarrierComp on order, but I really don't to wait three months.

You might just call to verify the lead time (if you haven't already). Mine shipped a lot faster than I was expecting. Also, their website only shows a 20-45 day lead time. Not sure if you're ordering something special for a 3 month wait

Sometimes the Carriercomp tubes pop up for sale on the equipment exchange on AR15.com. Or sold on gunbroker. 

Good call. I check it everyday but things move fast over there. If you happen to see one, can you ping me?

Yep. I’ll keep an eye out. 

Appreciate that!

Heck, if you're willing to- if it's under $200 and is in good shape and I can't get there in time, just buy it then I'll PayPal you the money. lol

I ordered last week and was told the same thing. While not what I wanted to hear, I appreciate them not overpromising in delivery speed. The time will go quickly and I have a feeling it’s worth the wait.

@ClackClackBAM I have a 7 round tube on order too. LOL it kinda sucks knowing that you confirmed a 3 month turn away, but I'm going to wait as well.  Now I'm thinking the 20-45 days didn't sound that bad! I ordered the DG finished version.

Has anyone used the speed bar for the bolt release? 

Mikey D -

I have the speed bar from Dave's Metal Works.  I actually bought it from Redneck Tactical which still cracks me up today.  It's a "precision" bent piece of metal that is redneck genius.  Kind'a like your wife using your trolling motor to dice-up a bucket full of crawdads to make gumbo!  It works.... .  The biggest draaawback is it is held in place by the right forearm piece and will fall free when you begin to disassemble the gun.  In other words, it's easy to lose.  I tried to lose it many times but the metal clang when it fell on the floor alerted me to go looking for it.

Having said that, it worked and served me very well for years before recently swapping it out for a GG&G assembly with oversized bolt release pad/button.  I did that after my OEM shellstop/bolt release broke. 

It works.

Question- would it be worth keeping the OEM tube once my CC is ready, or should I just sell it?

I'm a little adverse to selling my OEM parts because I consider them spares for the chance I may need 'em.  It is a good way to recoup some funds as you upgrade your M4, but OEM 7 round tubes seem pretty plentiful on GB and ebay.  I guess it can't hurt to post it and see if you get any bites.

Based on the market's desire for aftermarket mag tubes, and not factory tubes, I wouldn't count on getting much for it. My plan is to keep all my take-off parts in the event that I ever decide to part ways with the M4.  That way, I can make a factory spec m4, hopefully getting near retail for it, while parting out the aftermarket goodies. IDK how the market's supply usually is with 922r USA parts, but I know it's dry right now. Collapsible stocks are MAD expensive right now. Trigger kits are basically unobtainable...
