Just curious to see if anyone has attended a gun show recently and what the prices are for ARs, AKs and anything looking else ?

Went to a show last weekend.

Pmags $60-$75
GI used mags $50
Stripped lowers $350-$450
Colt LE6920 $2999

Pistol prices were OK, but mags were stupid. GLOCK 22 mags $50

Not worth going to right now.

Was my experience at the gun show this weekend as well. Also to note the price of admission went from $7.00 at the door to $10.00 and they had almost 50,000 people between Fri and Sat and it is still going on today.

The sad part is that the majority of those people are probably first time gun buyers. They're afraid that they won't be able to buy them ever again and so NOW they want one.

I bet a lot of them voted for the muslim in the White House too! Makes me ill

Saw a 23 mag today, guy wanted $40 for it. Pretty much told him he was crazy, went to local gun shop and picked one up for $25, about $10 more than a couple weeks ago.

I am one to suggest that while shows are not as good as they used to be there can still be some bargains at gun shows. The P239 that I paid 325 for proves that to me at least. That said my guess is that bargains or deals for anything that is high capacity or "black" rifle related are going to extremely unlikely for the next few months.

I sold a Bushmaster Carbon 15 (no optics, no sights flattop) for $1500 last weekend, and it didn't take long.

There was one vendor at the show who had a sign with 5.56 ammo priced at $.50/round. We asked him if he had any more in stock, and he quietly and sadly shook his head. I'm guessing his stock was wiped out in the first 15 minutes. He was probably thinking of all the profit that went out the window by not pricing higher.

This thread makes me sad. I had no idea prices had gone that high.

I don't remember the exact date but about 10 or so days before the CT school shooting I purchased a Glock 17 for $480 plus tax at a local gun store. It of course came with two mags. I went to Cabelas after this an bought one more mag for about $30 as I recall. I'm glad I bought the Glock when I did because I bought it on a whim..... I have tons of handguns, long guns and didn't really want or need an addition Glock.

Today gun prices, mag prices, ammo prices are really getting scary...... I long for the "good old days".

OMG!


A LEO friend of mine, went to the Fredericksburg GS a couple of weeks ago, and said that PMags were going for $100.00 apiece.

I had no idea that Colt ARs would go for $5,000.00!!!

For that kind of $$$, I'd sell my NIB 6721, and that is NO Bovine Scatology!!!!!
(I paid 1/5th that price.)

I'm seeing ARs at 2 G now and AKs at 1 G. PMags $45.

Hahahaha I got mine many years ago. Amazing how many people wait till water is around their knees before they decide to move.

There are three kinds of people. There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened.

Sure Obama's agenda may very well go no where. So what? Every solid citizen should have a good rifle, mags, and ammo stashed just in case they are needed. But no... so many people sit back and say, 'what happened?".

Probably way more than you can afford if you have to ask NOW.

Find a price about a year ago and TRIPLE IT! That is your answer.

Same at the Gun Show in Orlando today. Ammo is high and forget ARs. I arrived at 2pm (closed at 5pm) and the line was still 200-300 people long just to get tickets. I heard they were giving people free Sunday tickets to exit the building and come back tomorrow because the Fire Marshall had restricted people entering until others left. It was about twice as crowded as any show I attended there before, including back in October or November.

Same here in TX today, except the Colts are $3000. Also, AK's for around $1200. I did see one FEG AMD for 800 though. Couldn't bring myself to get it since they were $400 at CTD a month ago... Also saw a perfect like new gen 4 G34 for $550 private sale. I contemplated it, but don't want gen 4 so I let it go. I did find small pistol primers though...$170/5000. Snagged that
