Sorry had a bunch of coffee this morning coffee

I'm seeing AR parts and rifles all over the place on sale and clearance.

Is the AR on the way out?? Unless your a pretend operator???

I have mine and like it, never shoot it, Id rather roll out the LR bolt guns and bang steel

it just seems like the black rifle craze is slacking off, probably just me

thoughts? should I make an oxner like poll?

Race to the bottom is catching up. During the Obama years everyone got into ar making because it was profitable. Now supply exceeds demand and pricing are going lower

Lol ARs are the top selling rifle in America. They're going no where. It always happens this way when Republicans are in charge. When Democrats are in charge the gun manufacturers ramp up production to like 1000% just in case they have a run on guns because of a potential ban. Once the craze passes they have ample surplus in inventory and the price plummets. To move inventory manufactures have to give deep discounts.

If you notice most of all the discounted rifles are plain bottom of the barrel rifles. Quality components and rifles will still cost you. Now of course if you build a top tier rifle with top tier parts you better be ready to keep it. Because John Doe AR buyer rhat doesnt know anything is going to pay $499 for a bottom of the barrel Anderson AR just to say he has one instead of paying $1500 for a top tier gun that will shoot lights out.

I sure do agree with you on that, Buzz. There has never been a better time to buy than now!

Has anyone checked AK-47 prices lately? I think AKs are more expensive than ARs now.

I liked AKs and SKSs when they were $400, the low price was the biggest part of the appeal. For $900, I'd rather have something else.

Donít forget the plentiful super cheap ammo. I havenít considered an AK in years, are they really that expensive and why?
