    So I did an Effen90 SBR build, it was about $150 more using a used bolt carrier. Here was my analysis: The stock was sending the barrel to the vendor on the forum everyone uses.

    Effen90 Stock
    Effen90 Rec. 399 374+25 transfer 1325
    Stock and Butt 290 FN Forum
    Bolt/Charging Handle and Spring 455 Used GB
    Trigger Pack 179 MWG
    Man Kave Hammer 75 75
    Springs/Rod 48 MWG
    Barrel 260 192
    CMMG Thread Adapter 34
    1740 1592
    Tax Stamp 200 200
    Tax Stamp Service 50 50
    Engrave 50 50
    2040 1892

    Thanks for the really good breakdown. Since I already have a lot of the parts and don't want to sell those, I am going to piece one together too. I just ordered the rest of the parts except the moving parts group. Hopefully my LGS gets the receiver in a few days and I can mail in my form 1 by Friday. Then I get to wait. No rush getting the moving parts group since it will be about 6 months. I have time to look around. If not MGW has them too.

    Thank you all!

    No worries... but considering getting the moving parts group while its available, as things go out of stock for long periods of time because of the niche market for the ps90...

    Progress so far. I did call and talk to FN about the moving parts group and they told me the parts were the same, so I ordered the semi auto one just in case they sell out. I also mailed in my Form 1 last Wednesday and got a notification from my bank that the ATF cashed the check this morning. I'm crossing my fingers that this one comes back sooner than 6 months. I'm still not sure which optic to go with, but hopefully there are some good sales before Christmas. Now the real wait begins.

    I just tried the new EFile system with the ATF on a couple of ps90's that I've been intending to shorten to their natural length. We will see how long it takes them to get back with me. I think a lot of people started putting requests in through the efile system this month. I am not sure, but think I will probably have TROS cut both of those barrels as it is 100 cheaper to use your own barrel. I took my Effen90 SBR our last week for the first time and it ran great. It was my first time to use my AAC 30 cal suppressor and it did a great job as well. Fun little guns.

    They always cash the check immediately, the current wait is running around 6 months.

    Nice! I have a Energetic Armament NYX Mod2 that I put on my PS90 SBR and love it. I keep thinking about getting a 30 cal suppressor, but decided to build the new rifle instead.
