Any similar models suggested? Bushmaster? DMPS?



after looking online........you're too late and so am I.....any gun that might fall under a new assault weapons ban is sold out at most places. Local gun shops don't have any in stock and word is that a small local shop has taken hundreds of thousands in orders with some people dropping $10k on lists of their dream guns that will be banned

Afraid you are out of luck.....pretty much dried up everywhere. We have a local PNW based gun website and there are tons of WTB ads for ARs. Private parties and selling what was a $95 lower receiver for over $300 and getting it! I have an in with a manufacturer in FL and am getting 4 lowers soon.....I hope

Did this happen just in the last few days?

Or since Obama got re-elected?

There have been several articles about the evil gun lobby paid for by the evil gun manufacturers and to "follow the money" when it comes to "lack" of gun legislation. Another article on S&W stock being down - one fund dumped it's holdings in S&W earlier this year, and the stock market has dumped them because they think gun legislation is coming.

If anything the *threat* of gun legislation makes a bunch of people go out and buy up firearms, magazines and ammo - driving up prices.

Over the last couple of years I have noticed that ARs had come down in price - some decent full rifles in the neighborhood of $600 when you couldn't touch them for twice that years before.

I might buy an AR rifle just to have the platform because there are so many different uppers you can get for them. Not sure how compatible some of the brand names are with various uppers. I was thinking of getting the SIG piston gun (not a real fan of the DI guns). I want one with a flat-top upper so I can put a scope on it easily.

Demand/prices were up but they went into overdrive over the weekend as the anti-gun nazis went on the offensive and pro-gun advocates and politicians didn't/couldn't defend it.

It's not just ARs either, I've been listing an XD-9SC for about a month now, and sticking to my price as everyone tried to lowball me. Monday a guy said, "I'll take it." and drove all down from ATL to get it. Same with a bunch of USGI AR mags that sold in less than a day. Drove by the local gun shop (at 10 PM) and the place was still crowded.

It's good to be a seller in a panic.

But arrrggghhh.....package went AWOL for two freaking days, then showed up a few minutes ago, back in Denver. Probably some asshole coded it to RTS which means another couple weeks waiting, by which time the background check will take another 7 days, so I might shoot this thing by Feb, 2013.

FECK!!!!!FECKETY FECK FECK!!!!

Clerk said "Priority does not mean anything" "Oh" I said "you mean it expresses the hopes of the shipper and recipient only?" Clerk: "[pause]".

Visited several shops this AM, all sold out between Mon and Tues AM. All on hand stock gone within 36 hrs

Edit: not politically motivated, simply a market report

I was gonna say that all my magazines hold six shots in a circle, but I just took delivery of my new Sig and it holds 15


Hope to shoot Saturday for a bit to share some opinions.
