Crazy Low AR-15 Prices

Grabbed these Windham Weaponry SRCs from Primary Arms for $400 each(sold out). They also had $425 complete Andersons, $388 Deltons, $800 free float Aeros. They are basically paying us to buy these. Another couple of months when some of these companies probably go bankrupt, prices could go even lower.

We can't have them anyhow, they've got that infernal baby killing M4 profile grenade launcher cutout in it. And everybody knows how high the body count is from that cutout.

Colt HBARs generally sell for lower than the 6920s, so if m4 profile prices crash hopefully HBAR prices do as well.

Given the rock bottom prices for decent clones, this could possibly be the end of line for Colt; they've been on the brink for a few years now having just emerged from bankruptcy a few months ago.

The record sales of ARs during the Obozo Zone means more and more people have been exposed to them by neighbors, friends, and co-workers, and that could keep sales strong.

If prices are this cheap, the supply/demand curve would tend to suggest that demand isn't very high right now. How could demand really be high right now with Trump about to take office. I think a lot of retailers stocked up on inventory, and a lot of manufacturers produced a lot of inventory, thinking that Hillary was going to win or that they would take advantage of panic buying in October and early November.

If demand was really high, you would see a lack of availability throughout the nation akin to early 2013. It wasn't just Maryland in 2013 where things were scarce and expensive, but across the nation. A Rock River lower in February 2013 cost me $315 because demand was through the roof. Nowadays, what do they cost? $95?

I think guns in general will be very cheap over the next 4-8 years. Stack them deep!

I doubt it. I think the market is saturated, especially for entry-level ARs. I fully expect that some of the weaker makers will go under in the next year or two.

Never been a fan of stockpiling the same types of guns, but those prices almost make you wanna buy them by the gross.

I've done two now, and I'm confident that both are battlefield reliable. One of those I had to buy my own parts for, and it added up to a bit more than $395.
