This question is so frequent that we added it to our FAQ’s, but we decided to do a stand alone blog post to help answer your question more directly.
Q: Isn’t it cheaper to just buy complete uppers?
A: We’ll begin by making the assumption that you are not getting parts and components at a wholesale/distributor price. We know that if people take the time to look around, they will notice a couple things.
First, the selection of complete uppers available is nowhere near the 60+ that we are working on bringing to market. Second, as people start pricing complete uppers for specialty calibers (.450 Bushmaster, .458 SOCOM, .50 Beowulf, etc), they see where the extreme $$$ savings comes in.
As consumers get outside the common 5.56 NATO, .300 Blackout, 7.62x39mm, etc. complete uppers, their sources tend to run out of choices. So the person that assumes they can get all of their uppers in different calibers for the same price as a BASIC level 5.56 NATO (their price they usually base all the math on), they quickly find out our system pays itself off very, very early.
Doing our own market research we found that comparative builds using standard “complete uppers” vs. the War Lock™ Multiple Caliber System resulted in savings starting at the second caliber. Your “mileage may vary” based on the numbers and figures you use.
We have included the following comparison to show the cost differences we found:
