I received an email today advertising an 'off brand' AR-15 for just over $500. Has the market absolutely tanked on these? Is the hype over? I thought buying a few in anticipation of at least 4 more blue years in DC might be a good thing, but now I am wondering if it is. Penny for your thoughts and comments.

Yes, the market is pretty far down. I wouldn't buy any right now that you don't have a use for or can't afford to have sit in the safe.

Market has been down for quite a while.

AR15s for close too$500 from name brands like DPMS/Bushmaster
308 caliber ones for $750

No reason to wait if you want one at these prices. If you wait too long prices will only go back up.

Supply caught up with demand as demand was diminishing.
I would say buy as many as you can and hold onto them. 30 round magazines too. I'm sitting on about 700 AR mags right now that I have bought over the last 3 years.

Dpms Oracle costs $500 at buds. If you have the money, it wouldn't be bad to buy one.

Now, where's my penny??

I look at it as an investment, if you have some disposable income, get some. Some day your kids and their kids may not be able to get em.

Great time to buy. If that socialist b!tch gets elected the prices will go up again very quickly.

The dpms? Yeah they are decent. I wouldn't take it to war with me but if I had the money sitting around and was wanting one anyhow, I would pick one up.

Five years ago, AKs were still a cheaper alternative to an AR. The gun and the ammo was about half the cost of an AR. Now the cost is close to the same. I'm surprised AKs are still selling at the current prices.

We were talking about that today setting up at the Lewisville show.The prices on ARs are about the same as the early 80s when I bought my first one. I get emails every week from various warehouses pushing "deals" on instock ARs. I think the manufacturers were building as many possible, and now demand is down. Yes I have several in stock and several "personnel" ARs.
