Arrow IMBEL Parts Kits $89.99

That's right. You can still buy 2 or more kits for only $89.99 each.
If you just need one, the price is still $99.99.

Click here for more details on this great deal...

I've got one Para kit in stock. It does not include the Imbel parts kit. It is brand new and available to ship. The price is $499.99.
Thanks for the question and let me know if I can lock that one down for you.

$89 dollar kits were nice but I don't miss everything about the "old days".

TAPCO didn't pull the trick. Every year on 1Apr someone dredges up old ads from the archives,........usually the $89 Imbel kits, but sometimes unfired, matching StG kits for $150,........or $129 Izzy HB kits,...........or the $200 L2A1 kits. There's no end to April Fool fodder in old postings.

Moral of the story is,.........get them while you can.

Can I get a discount for 100 kits? Price is kind of steep don't you think? I mean it's not like they are in demand or anything. Maybe they'll go up next year, could be a good investment, maybe.

I found one of their catalogs from 03' in amongst my piles of shotgun news; so much FAL stuff and neat milsurp stuff at great prices...They still send me their catalogs (I dont know why, I havent bought anything from them for over a year), just chock full of over priced plastic trash mags and stocks (sorry, Bill, but a spades a spade); how sad... Whats funny is that they are selling the same stuff listed in their catalog to jobbers at major wholesale who are then undercutting their prices ( their= nameles firearm accessory corporate entity the we at the files know "oh so well") and selling the stuff on GB, AA and Ebay at about 25% less thatn their catalog list price... ( oh , Gee, just what I always wanted for my Yugo sks, an AR style telescoping stock set, or AK plastic side folding stocks that break w/ normal use)--- I wonder how much longer "they" will continue on in the black having changed their product line so radically; albeit gradually...I remember when I used to eagerly await the arrival of their monthly catalog; now it just goes in the trash w/ the rest of the junk mail...

Got two used but nice Imbels, degreased by TAPCO. Built one, stashed one.

Friend of mine and I were just onna phone when he saw this thread. We got to reminiscing. WAY back when, I was all wound up with Enfields, Garands and such. Another bud kept hammering at me for us to get into the FAL biz. he would drag out the latest SGN and there would be all these kits. Fuggin 79 bux for onesies, IIRC ten or more and they would almost PAY YOU to take them. My bud said he remembered these days, but no receivers were around. Back then I told my other bud to STFU about FNFAL shit and get back to cleaning cosmo off the No 4 Enfields we bought.

I missed the boat on No 4' s AND FALS. ALL you mugs would be paying me dearly now.

Stoopid bird.



PS- holler me up about 2013 or 2017 and I will cut you a deal on some real nice Imbel kits and CAI uppers.

I first typed in $189, then I remember a little before the receiver import ban they were filling back orders with the $249 price, it may have been +or- 10 bucks on that price though.


DAMMIT!!!!!

I'm holding out for a price drop.

I think they should include a free build or something with kit prices like that.

I used to walk about two blocks to get gas for the mower. Gallon metal can. DAMN heavy for an 8-year-old to drag back. I gave the can to Dad... and change back for the QUARTER he gave me to buy the gas.

Ah Yes, the thread that never dies. You guys should really quit messing with the new guys. They can't even fathom those kind of prices. Kind of cruel,,,,,
