Is everyone who is picking these up now getting bent over on pricing?

The prices you see online (like gunbroker) and around here on armslist are a joke. People paying two to three times what stuff was worth a couple months back.

$1700.00 + tax and NICS. I put a deposit down before Sandy Hook at my local shop and they've been nice enough to hold it for me all this time. I picked it up Saturday and we all had a good laugh about putting it up on Gunbroker to see what kind of madness would occur.

Well, have a nice Windham weaponry upper receiver assembly headed my way. Anybody point me to a supplier/FFL that hasn't gone nuts with regard to stripped lower receivers? I'm in the South Carolina area.

I think the only lowers readily available are going to be the polymer ones. I think most of the big manufacturers/machinists are months behind, and if you can find one online or IRL, expect to pay several times what they were selling for two months ago.

Armalite, Mega MaTen and LMT 7.62 AR rifles were going in the $2,300-$3,200 range at the local fun show this weekend.

And they were selling.

Not sure if it fits in this thread, but I scored this little number today. I can't believe they had a Five seveN sitting on the shelf, considering how many times they have attempted to ban them. I mean the 5.7 is kind of a rifle round right?

Yes it is. A very dangerous, armor piercing, government overthrowing, bad guy rifle round.

Kind of sounds like Christmas or Valentines day, every year. Do you whine when those retailers make a profit?

Some deals still out there

Buddy of mine called me this afternoon about a rifle he had just bought. He got the Sig variant of the AR and paid a little over 800.00 for it. Tax, background fee total out the door was like 927.00. He wanted to know if he did okay. I told him oh yeah. Saturday at the range another fellow told me had a Colt Sporter Competition Hbar with 3 mags that he'd let go for 2,000.00. Right now prices are all over the place.

Big difference between those two.
