Mega Arms Production

We here at MEGA understand everyone’s frustration with the high demand and low supply of our products. Please let us explain what is causing the current situation.

We are currently running 24/7 at our facility. Unfortunately we do not have any more floor space within the facility we occupy, so it’s not as easy as buying machines and “hitting go”. In the few weeks before the recent tragedy we were just weeks away from acquiring a new facility and more machinery. This would be a financial commitment that would take years to recoup. The machines we use range in cost from 400k-1million dollars, not including tooling, operators and training.

We have determined that due to the attitude of the current administration, it would not be fiscally responsible or in the best interests of our valued employees to take the risk of adding a new facility. We value our employees and do not want open a new facility, and hire a new crew to then turn around and lay them off if there is new legislation passed.

We hope that all of our customers and fans understand. We will continue to do our best to get parts out to you guys. We also encourage anyone who comes across one of our “authorized dealers” (on our website) price gouging to contact us via email @

Thanks for your support!

    It’s impossible to find any mega products that aren’t being price gouged!

  2. David Exley says:

    Completely understandable, thank you for being one of the companies to let us know!

    Hello ,

    I am trying to locate somewhere that i can back order one of your forged AR-15 lowers for a build i want to do in the future.

    I live in the everett , washington area and am having a hard time finding somewhere local’ish that i can back order one of your lowers from.

    If you can point me in a direction that would be great.


  4. Andrew Piepho says:

    I’m also having problems trying to find or back order products. No local dealers as I live in Arkansas. Only online and everything is oos. I’ve tried to preorder mkm with no luck either…. Thanks for making gret products at great prices. I’m sad I might have to go with a DPMS build because I literally can’t find MEGA products anywhere. I’m on every “notify me” I can find. I’ve spent over 20 hours trying to find a MATEN that is close to Retail. :0(. I’m frustrated but I know you are doing your bet so Thank You.

  5. Brian says:

    I understand and sympathize with your business decision not to expand. I also appreciate how you look out for your employees. For those of us lucky enough to have your AR-15 and Maten lowers, do you plan to continue to make uppers so we can complete our builds…despite what may come from the AWB?

  6. Mark says:

    Thanks for the update guys!

    I’m patiently waiting to get my hands on a MKM upper for a MATEN build. Until then, let us know how we can help preserve our 2nd amendment rights and stand tougher against this administration!

  7. Timothy Salzman says:

    Thank you for being responsible and thinking of the futures of not just yourselves, but your employees. I wish for the best for all of you.

  8. Mike Sudak says:

    Two months into my wait for my next Mega forged lower. Ordered in November, after the elections. Felt a bit silly, but don’t any more. Love my Mega lower. Can’t wait to build the next one. Wish the current climate was more positive formyou. Great company, even better products.

  9. rob oconell says:

    it is a shame how the lies of the media has ruined our inds.thank you for being honest

  10. Nick Merryman says:

    I had a chance to tour your facility a couple years back and was very impressed with the work you do. I hope as we all do that our current administration doesn’t make the unfortunate mis-step of banning a class of firearms out of pure ignorance. I do feel you at Mega Arms made the responsible decision given the uncertain political climate we are in currently. Thank you again for the tour and I hope I still have the opportunity in the future to purchase AR parts from you since you are not only a part of my local economy, but also machine beautiful receivers. Take care in these rough times.

  11. Michael Yager says:

    Trying to locate or backorder a Mega Arms trigger. I had one on backorder just to receive word that it was canceled. Currently serving in Afghanistan and can not wait until i return due to the possibility of legislation. Any Help on where I can get one of these? Thanks

  12. Chris Bowers says:

    I back ordered a pair of forged ar 15 lowers through one of the distributors listed on the site it took about 3 weeks but I got them. Thanks for building as many as you can. it is awful that your business plans are so impacted by the attitudes of politicians.

  13. John Public says:

    No online dealers have anything AR related for sale. Mags, barrels, BCGs, uppers/lowers, even buffers are on back order. It’s as if all the AR manufacturers are producing NOTHING and instead are waiting to see which way the wind blows. In the meantime you are all missing the boat because WE got money burning a hole in our pocket, but YOU won’t see it unless you start producing. So, what’s the hold up?

    • Mega Arms says:

      We are running almost 24/7. Right now the indusrty is inundated with orders. We have thousands upon thousands of product on backorder and are filling orders as quickly as we can.

      • John Public says:

        At least you replied. You can’t get a reply to an email from an FFL let alone a MEGA distributor. Forget talking to them on the phone. It just rolls over to a filled voice mailbox. This is a BAD situation for consumers.

        • Mega Arms says:

          The industry in inundated with orders right now. The backorders are huge. I can recommend a few of our current dealers that are taking backorders. You might have to leave a message, but they will call you back. Thanks for your understanding in such a frustrating situation.

  14. Jeremy says:

    Looking to build my first AR-15 and was wondering who to contact in Minnesota? Looking for a Mega forged lower for a start…no luck so far.

  15. Dustin says:

    I would like to preorder a maten upper or mkm upper. Do you have any suggestions of a distributor that would help me with that?

  16. Rick says:

    I have a midlength monolithic mega upper. Where can I purchase a mega billet lower? And I am having a very difficult time locating an Adams arms mts piston system.

    • Mega Arms says:

      You are going to need to get on a backorder list with one of our current dealers for the lower. We have the carbine and rifle length piston kits in stock. If you call our office, I can recommend a dealer to place the order with. Our office number is 360-918-0054. Thanks.

  17. Keith says:

    Great lower and upper! did a back order with your recommended supplier and had a set in less then 3 weeks!
    Thank you.

  18. Peter King says:

    I would like to preorder a maten upper or mkm upper. Do you have any suggestions of a distributor that would help me with that?

  19. Christopher Harper says:

    You guys rock and keep up the hard work! I keep reading these posts saying I cant get this or that but they are just not willing to put any effort into it, yet expect you to drop what your doing to pander to their every whim. Awesome product I’ve been able to purchase the new Billet GTR3S and a nice Forged Pistol upper in the last two days!!! I am now a Mega Fan Boy so keep it pumping……..

  20. M. R. Valiente says:

    Just read your MKM-MATEN featured in the Marine Corps Times. Impressive! Please let me know if I can order one or where in San Antonio, Texas. Might be a long line or list though. One suggestion about your move to a new facility to increase production: Move to Texas! We will welcome you with open arms! Thank you for the outstanding product!

  21. Michael says:

    Hello all ! I second the move to TEXAS ;0) I’ve also had trouble with ordering parts in Texas ? Called many dealers & left countless messages with not 1 phone call returned ! This includes Texas and other states as well.

    CHRIS BOWERS who did you order from? No secrets !

    Christopher Harper .. Easy I have to wonder ..I might just start a call list @ this point as I stated no callbacks here! Countless hours on the phone with a very nice calm understanding attitude towards all and everything firearms related to the person on the other line. No luck. Don’t take this wrong but you sound like a dealer? But wait I might be about to do the same thing!

    I know many companies are working their families near divorce or for the lucky ones ..a new 2013 whip ;0) !
    Firearms sales staff have to be tired of the same questions. Maybe not tired but its ..Do you have…? Do you know when..? Do you know where I can ? “Not sure and sorry NO not at this time” Most of us don’t like 2 tell people no, and I’m sure they don’t either.
    What are companies like these to do ? Cutting out loyal dealers doesn’t make good business sense. Mega Arms seems to have made a wise choice with regards to employees and dealers. It sure hasn’t made my life any easier I’d prefer to click “add to cart ” and be done and gone , but I would’ve done the same! So should we post on here that “this dealer” in our area has made no response? That’s why I mentioned a call log. I would only do that if I knew the company would even give a flip. Looks like this one does but I don’t plan on posting them. It might help Mega to make some undercover like calls to their dealers to see how far they get on ordering (no caller id )? I hope the dealers are actually selling the new stock instead of gouging at the gun shows. Or is there any stock ?

    Sorry about the long reply. Thanks for the responses as its more that many have done!

    Btw..Mega Arms ..I need me some of them uppers , lowers and downers etc . ;0) . Can ya hook a guy up? I think I know what’s coming? Mega Arms says “please call us at 360-918-0054 ” you can bet on it and I hope 2 get some results ! Make sure in the next meeting that a THANKS goes out to all the staff at Mega Arms !!

    Ps..I need me some of that stuff !!

    • Mega Arms says:

      We totally understand your frustration with getting calls answered. The industry is so inundated with orders right now, it is just crazy. You would not believe the amonunt of times we get cussed at, hung up on and just feel our customers frustrations coming through on the phone. We are running almost 24/7 and shipping product out twice a week. I could at times have someone answer the phone and the answer would be either “we are backordered over a year right now” or “I am unsure what the government is going to do”. We want to help everyone as much as we can and are trying our best to take care of everyone. We have a couple of dealers that are taking backorders still and they either answer the phone or call you back as soon as they can.

      Just know we appreciate all our customers. Thank you to all of you who support us!

      (PS You are correct, please call us at 360-918-0054 and we will help you out the best we can!)

  22. Anthony Salvatore says:

    When will the MKM rail and upper rcvr combo be avail.? I have been watching Rainier Arms closely and have not seen them ever post any of the new Maten MKM rails and upper rcvrs. I am lucky enough to have a Maten Lower and just need the Rcvr and Rail before sending off to be multicamed. Also when will you guys begin making barrels? Who do you know is taking back orders for these parts?

    Thanks and keep making great products,
    Anthony S.

    • Mega Arms says:

      MKM has been shipping out this week and will be next week too. The barrels will hopefully be shipping out in March. Please call in if you would like a recommendation on who to backorder with. 360-918-0054.

      Thank you!

  23. Brett Kuenzi says:

    I am trying to get a GTR-3S stripped lower receiver and cant find any for back order through your dealers. I dont want to spend an arm and a leg on gunbroker so I was wondering if you have any suggestions? Thank You.

  24. John Public says:

    I don’t know how someone claims to have received a billet upper/lower set within TWO days of ordering it when I ordered a billet upper/lower set in the first week of JANUARY with a vendor recommended by Mega Arms. What’s up with that? At this rate, Congress will outlaw ARs before I receive mine.

    • Mega Arms says:

      Some of our dealers are selling their product lotto style, so when our dealer receives product from us, they send out a mass email to all who have hit the notify me on their website and whoever calls in first gets the product. There are other dealers that do business as we do and make a backorder list and go down the list and sell the product that way.

  25. John Public says:

    That backorder list must be a mile long then.

  26. Trevor Robbins says:

    I Would Just Like To Find A Trigger “Chrome” I Can Find Tons Of Timney Triggers Out There On The Web, I Dont Even Care About Price, I Cant Find One Anywhere. Are The Backordered Over A Year Out?
    If So I Will Have To Get A Different Brand.

  27. Aaron B. says:

    Do you have an ETA for the new key mod style 5.56 upper/lower combo? Can I get on a list to order one?

    • Mega Arms says:

      Our estimated release date is late spring/early summer. It isn’t available for sale, so there won’t be any lists you can get on. If you sign up for our newsletter, you will be notified once it has been released for sale.


  28. Dale DeAngelo says:

    Don’t get worked up about the backorder list.
    I ordered from JSE on 2/26/2013 and received shipment to my FFL today on 3?27/2013.
    Great experience with the dealer also.
    Don’t pay a premium. Just go the backorder route.
    MAny who backorder drop out and that benefits the rest of us. If you really want the best quality AR receiver set on the market Just order and be patient.
    BTW, I actually paid slightly below MSRP plus shipping. :-).

  29. SL says:

    Are you still producing the M0903 sets? And if so, are you producing less of them than the Ambi sets?

    • Mega Arms says:

      We still manufacture the M0903-HA. The way production works, we produce one part and then another and do it in cycles. We just did a run of M0910-HA and are gearing up to do the M0903-HA. My recommendation is to get on a backorder list with one of our dealers. If you would like a recommendation, please call in and we’d be happy to help you with that 360-918-0054.

      Please let us know if we can answer any other questions.


      • SL says:

        Thank you for your quick reply. I have been on backorder with three of your dealers since the end of last year. I just thought that there was probably more demand for the ambi combos, and that you were probably producing them in a 3 to 1, or 2 to 1 ratio. Keep up the good/hard work and we’ll be waiting patiently!

        • Mega Arms says:

          Thanks for your understanding and patience. We are doing our best to fill orders as timely as we can! Please let us know if we can help with anything else.

  30. John says:

    I need a stripped upper!!! LoL

    I have 4 of your lowers and they are top notch! Thanks for producing a high quality product!

  31. Ben says:

    I put in an order at JSE for the upper/lower ambi and I got a call in one day that it was shipping. My buddy the same. Don’t sweat it folks. Plus forged is just as strong as billet. Mega makes the nicest looking billet, hands down. Just got a trigger at Parallax in San Diego today. 76$.

  32. Marcus says:

    I did a backorder thru per Mega’s recommendation. I placed my order on March 8th (Billet Lower 3G-H) and received a phone call yesterday at noon. Sent the FFL and the product shipped out and is due to arrive today. Pumped!

  33. Adam G says:

    Hi Mega,
    Are you guys producing the nickle boron receiver sets?

  34. Josh Kirkendall says:


    I have a Maten upper and lower,(I was gouged hehe) and am looking for a ejection port cover do you guys make one? If not any suggestion

  35. Luke G says:

    Any ETA on the new Standard Billet Uppers (W/ Anti rotation slots)? I backordered through JSE as I was suggested but I cant wait, I’m so excited. I have all my parts ready to build with and my GTR-3H Ambi lower will ship later this week.

  36. Bryan G says:

    Do you happen to have an estimate on production times for the Mega Triggers? I certainly understand and appreciate your stance in regards to expansion and employee retention. Thank you for your time and efforts!

    • Mega Arms says:

      We manufacture our triggers on the same machine we make our billet lowers. It has been so busy that we have not been able to break in and make triggers. The schedule goal for manufacturing them again is in the next 4-6 weeks which will put them to our dealers in the next 6-8 weeks. Thank you!

  37. William C says:

    I can appreciate the situation. How is it looking for MATEN uppers and lower, MKM preferably, but I would settle for either right now.
    Thanks for your time and commitment.

  38. Sean job says:

    im a Mega Dealer in Bellingham ,Wa id be happy to let anyone place a back order with me and ill do my best to help anyone else out as well
