ARs on the shelf

I was surprized at a local GS today when I seen about 10 different ARs on the shelf for about 100.00 more than the price before the scare.

I bet all the panic buyers that were stupid enough to pay up to $3,000 for a plain jane AR are starting to kick their selves right about now...

I hear ya, I was thinking about that when I seen them.
this local shop is really good and didn't raise their prices. they sell a lot of guns and when everyone was gouging they didn't. that will pay big for them over time.

I think we are the very end of this craziness, just about to start getting back to normal. I overpaid for some 5.56mm ammo but nothing else during this mess. I think ARs will be back in stock first, then ammo and mags and then individual AR parts.

I dunno. Dicks, et al, still don't have 22 lr ammo.

I didn't overpay for anything, but I went ahead and bought some competition 22 lr ammo from Midway. Because of the quality control on that ammo, it always has been more expensive.

I was at an Albq. Gunshop today looking to sell my Winchester 94 and they were packed of course. But the guy in front of me was trying to trade his AR for a $2000.00 tac job bolt action in .308. The gun shop gal told him they couldn't do cuz they believed the AR prices are going to go way down soon. It ain't gospel, but I' sure as hell glad I have what I've had since the Slick Willy sunset and cast/reload my own shootin' stuff.

No doubt, ammo is still impossible to find but it will return. Production is at full capacity I would guess and we will see it hitting the shelves within the next month or two.

ARs are starting to slowly show back up in shops around here.

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=328231373

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=328259592

Prices are dropping on the ole 6920. I don't think either of these NIB 6920s will hit $2000. A couple of weeks ago they would have hit $2200-$2300. It's a start back to pre-mess times anyways.

Screw Dicks. With how they almost immediately jumped on the gun grabber bandwagon and stopped selling ARs right after SH, they will never get a dime of my money.

Why are you sellin such a nice rifle??

I need to learn to do that, but it is nice to be sittin on lake city .223 that I paid $154/1000 years ago when I'd buy a case a payday.

Once prices get realistic, a I see a nice .308 in my future

Dicks is 5 minutes from my house and I will never step foot in that place again. Cabelas is about an hour and 30 minutes and I'll gladly make the drive.

Believe me brother, I don't want to part with it, but I simply need the cash. Still have my Marlin stainless 44mag lever gun. Invest in reloading stuff now mon. I started by just saving all my brass after each shooting session (usually in my mom's corral during weekends while in college as an undergrad), then got a single stage press, reloading book, scale, then powder thrower, then a couple of dies. Just little bits at a time. You don't need to get everything at once. Just start-startin' and you be set before you know it.

I have never though of Dick's as much of a gun store. Maybe if you need running shoes or a backpack. Dick's have always been a joke as a gun store.

It's starting to settle down. Credit card bills are starting to roll in and buyers remorse is setting in.

Bought a brand new DPMS 308 for msrp, $1199, Saturday morning. Had to wait a week, and drive a bit, for it but I think the madness is about over. Can't wait to see what hits the classifieds. Dying to offer some people just below msrp rifles they paid double or triple for a few months earlier. And never fired.

I bought a used le trade in 6721 for 1k and sold a oly to fund it And just enough extra to cover its new magpul furniture. Now I'm really thinking about selling it for what IV got in it and waiting till Wally world has new colts in stock again. lEither that or till true buyers remorse and credit card bills come in. I don't see the ban coming so I think I may go without one for a while

Could it be possible that supply will out do demand? Creating ARs for back to pre-election prices?

I think so also. I managed to sell my Keltec Sub2K last weekend for $800. I figure I wrung that particular trend just about out.

Talk about a great weekend, I picked up this beauty with the money I got from the Keltec.

Winchester Model 101 Diamond Grade (the finest grade they made) Undersingle Trap gun.

Doesn't have a single scratch or dent on it. Looks like it has lived its entire life in the safe. It is going to get used now though (I am an avid trap shooter).

Here is a link to an identical gun on gunsamerica.com Mine has prettier wood.

General Firearms Forum

http://www.gunsamerica.com/942997285...CHOKES+WCA.htm

I paid $1000 even for it (no tax or papers).

$800 for a sub2k? I am not big on selling guns once I've acquired them, but for that price I'd hand it over in a heartbeat.

That would be cool, but I doubt it.

I think most of the people who bought at inflated prices recently were doing so to get "in before the ban", and didn't already have a firearm of that type...so they are going to want to keep the one they have for the same reason they bought it.

I think people have a hard time taking that kind of loss, and would rather keep it unless they REALLY need the money.

I think a lot of people, especially the true hobbiests and professionals, knew not to buy during this and their purchaes, that were put on hold, will pick up as the market returns to normalcy. This would of course seem to effect the high end manufacturers more than the low grade stuff, so using this theory I suspect we might end up seeing inexpensive Bushmater, Olympic, and DPMS type rifles, but I don't see a flood of Colt, BCM, DD, Noveske, etc.

No doubt. I wish I kept mine instead of selling it for like $250 a couple years go.

I put a used Shrubmaster Carbon 15 on Gunbroker 1 week ago. $600 starting bid, no reserve, 1 day auction only, with a $1,399 Buy it Now. It sold via Buy It Now well before the 24 hours was up. lol


Of course, if there IS a ban, we will regret selling. Not likely though.
