21 minutes of availability one time when they hadn't been on the website, I don't think, since mid-late December...not really very available.




There are just too many email addresses signed up, I am sure.




And it's not that I am complaining about it as I have been as fortunate as anybody regarding picking up BCM stuff when it flashed into stock this year, but, well, BCM stuff from BCM just isn't something you can really count on or tell other people to count on. Unless you are looking at a ~6 month window, anyway.

Tell you what, lets bet to settle this.

If by July 4th 2013 I can find a complete AR in stock at MSRP you have to buy if for me. If I can not find one I will admit I was wrong. Deal?

I know people that found complete AR's in stock at regular prices last week, including Colts (Walmart still gets them).

I found a complete AR in stock at a regular price ($799) in mid January.

I bought two BCM BCG's in mid/late December for $159 each.

I bought a stripped Aero Precision lower for $99 shipped in December.

I bought a BCM complete upper (16" middy) for $459 less than 2 weeks ago.

I bought one of the $225 BCM BCG's on Friday.

It's hard to do and takes great timing/luck, but is certainly possible.

It is not something that can be relied on at this time or in the near future.

It's kinda like a scavenger hunt heck I don't even need anything but I keep looking for thing instock. I have not bought any when I fine them either, weird huh? I might build a AR once this mess settles down. I would like a 2nd 6.8 AR or maybe a 6.5 one. Not dead set on it though so I can wait.

A 'complete' upper. YOu may have to wait 3-4 weeks for it to ship, but it doesn't-suck (no BCM, but it no Shrubmaster either) and the price is reasonable

Still needs BCG

I would personally recommend against buying a Bushmaster.

Not trolling, just curious.

I think we are seeing things coming into stock, selling out in most cases but coming back into stock. That is exactly how the 2008/09 shortage started it's end. Also prices on the second hand market are dropping. Both signs of the end of the madness. Now we still have a LONG way to go before it's back to normal but I think it is starting to end.

I would be fine buying a Bushmaster. In fact I might pick up a ACR when this mess is over

There are higher quality AR15 type options out there, often for the exactly same price, or just a tad bit more.

Brand-New Colt LE6940P Gas Piston AR15. Never been fired, no dings, scratches, scuffs. Bought from Wade's Gun Range in Bellevue two weeks ago, realize I need the money more than the rifle. I have all the original packaging and receipts. Includes range bag, 30 round polymer clip, composite rail guards, and 2-point TacticalSling. Original packaging includes field strip manual, cleaning kit, 2x 20 round magazines, rail guards. Low model number 001572. This is about as good a gun as money will buy. I paid $5,700 for it, asking $5,000 firm. Gun is in Bellevue.

Call or text for pictures or additional information

I'll check the site for PMs but text is the best way to get a hold of me. I will meet you in Bellevue. Must be legally authorized to purchase a rifle in Washington, and I will require visual inspection of your driver's license (you must look like the picture on your license) and will provide a bill of sale.
This was posted in one of our local guns for sale website (seattleguns.net) . . .
