WTB Caspian Lower for Nelson Conversion (FOUND/ORDERED)

Post by Dcforman on 5/31/2018, 12:38 pm

Hey all!

Thought I'd ask if anyone has a new or lightly used Caspian frame they'd part with. Looking for a 5" basic model, prefer stainless, awesome if it has an integral tube, front strap checkering, and grip bushings installed. Wait time for a new one is 15 weeks. I'd prefer not to be that patient!

PM me with what you've got!

Thanks!

Dave

Aren't Fosters just Caspian with blemishes? Why would availability be different?

My Nelson conversion is already on order. I would feel bad calling up Frerking for a lower...

Yes, I guess Caspian messes up so many products they had to create an avenue to sell them.

The Foster receiver is identical to the Caspian with the exception of something slightly off cosmetically or dimensionally. I wouldn’t hesitate to use one. My Marvel is on a Foster and works perfectly.

use a ton of foster frames.. most you can't find the "flaw"..


they have SS frames for 160 and you can add Checkering .. I think the longest wait time I've ever had was 4-5 weeks

Awesome. Thanks, guys. I'll inquire as to a Foster frame.

Ugh. Brownell's is telling me that Caspian says 15 weeks on either a Caspian or Foster frame. Might just have to bite the bullet.

You can order the Foster frame directly from Caspian.

If you want, I can take some pictures of mine. There are some cosmetic flaws, but I don't notice them very often. I didn't want to take the risk of trying to fix them and making them worse, so I just left them as-is.

Tbh, if I did it again, I'd use a Caspian frame, but it was my first time attempting such a project.

I tried. When you check out, they make you select a dealer from their list. No dealers in Ohio. Maybe I'll just give them a call. Can't hurt.

if you have a dealer in mind  have them fax a copy of their FFL to them.
you can do your order and simply have it wait on the FFL. paid and everything.. simply reference your order number with the FFL.

Whelp, I feel a little sheepish. Looks like you can check out and select "Dealer not Found", then email your FFL's info. My problem was trying to use their checkout system with my phone. Getting some weird errors, which I wrongly attributed to not selecting one of their dealers. Broke out the old laptop, and problem solved!

At any rate, my frame was ordered. Thanks for the suggestions!
