Just like the title says. Because of the huge price increase on black rifles in the past few days. Just a quick search on GB. Looks like pos dpms are selling for north of $2000.

I just sold a nice Colt for $1k shipped. It's garbage price gougers that make things difficult on people.

I have a few lowers I'm going to sell when they hit the $1000 mark :rofl:

Honestly, all this sh1t is going to blow over in a few weeks and there's going to be a bunch of people with high CC balances that are going to be pretty pissed.

No, never. I smash all my guns with an sladge hammer and put everything nicely in a cardboard box for them if the day should ever come where I have to turn them in, that way they can't sell them to Mexico and other countries which would be very interested in buying American rifles from civilians. But such a scenario is highly unlikely.

Not planning on selling but if someone offered an obscene amount of money for it, I might bite.

Obama has given Biden till the end of January to come up with a plan, which he then intends to pursue vigorously. I would say your weeks is probably going to be more like months, maybe even a year or two in the legislative process. The worst of the price gouging and panic buys might last only another few weeks, but prices are going to be high until there is a definitive outcome. And if that outcome is strict gun control, or any kind of ban, you ain't seen nothing yet. :wow:

I believe the bad news is that this won't blow over.

The good news is that Biden is such a moron that he'll soon lose focus and forget what Obama told him. So, it may take a little longer to enact a ban.

I think its a coin toss today about whether or not this blows over. I hope so, but guys like Joe Scarboro, Charles Krauthammer and Scott Brown are waving the white flag on assault rifles and high cap mags; that's not a good sign.

The value of our assault-style rifles will trend upward quickly if restrictions on buying new ones are imposed.

I won't sell my Colt because I bought it out of respect for the history and tradition of the M4. I bought my 1911s and Beretta 92 for the same reason. My kids might sell 'em some day, but not me.

I dont want to but the price i could get for my Windham with a red dot sight, case, 11 mag of which 10 are Pmags and 750 rounds of ammo i could probably afford to pick up the Benilli M-4 and Sig Scorpion 1911 that i have always wanted. But its my only one so its a real difficult decision.

If someone offers me 3 times what I paid for it, sure I will.

Then I'll go buy something else when all settles down.

If Obama wanted a ban to really work, he would scrap the "infrastructure stimulus" and do a fair-value buyback. With MY definition of "fair" of course........

It would increase our national debt, but he could then scrap half the BATFE and other govenment agencies....

Before this, I already had plans on selling my AR10 type rifle and my L1A1. I wanted to pick up a new ArmaLite AR-10A to update my 7.62 NATO caliber rifle. It can use a Magpul magazine that is used by other AR 10 type rifle manufactures. I thought it would make a nice addition and make it easier for me to find magazines in the future if needed.

Now after all the craziness, I am going to sit tight on my AR10 type rifle. I donít want to get myself in a situation where I will have a hard time replacing my .308 AR. However, I will be taking my L1A1 rifle to the Gun Show to attempt to sell in order to raise cash for my planned purchase.

I live in Oregon, so I'm more worried about a state level AWB and if magazines are grandfathered or not. I have one ar15 that is a scoped bench gun(that I use 10/20 rnd magazines for) and I have a stripped lower w/ parts kit for a carbine. If I can't keep my 30rounders I might sell my stripped lower, because if I can only have 10 rounds I might move to a .308. Same with my Glock 17.. I'm not going to hold on to a full size 9mm that holds 10 rounds. And yes, I have written my state/federal senators to hopefully prevent this.

Well I decided to test the waters. I listed one of my ar's on gunbroker. I figure even if a ban happens I still have 2 others plus a lot of pmags. So if I cant replace it no biggie.

I take back what I said. During the last AWB Colt's went pretty high before I finally gave in and sold. Even then I had a backup AR though. Now I would fall under the category of those that could still buy (law enforcement) so if prices went high enough I'd buy another and sell mine at a profit if it was grandfathered in like before. High to me would be 2 to 3 times what I paid for mine new.

I've had several AR's over the past few years, and finally just built one from the ground up... Do I LOVE it... not really, but I like it, and it's fun to shoot... Would I sell it.... maybe, I have no care either way, I don't need the money.

Funny thing is that I just bought a Spike's Stripped Lower a month ago for $83 shipped, now they are hundreds, IF you can get one..

BUT, if this question was "Is anyone selling their Glock?", My answer would be swift hell no.

I have/had 7 fully built ar's, 2 complete lowers, a few Stripped lowers and a few Chrome Bcgs

i sold 3 of the fully built ones, 2 of the complete lowers, still hording the BCGS lol

While i did not gouge i did make some money. They were mostly friends and we found a happy medium where i get some extra cash and they were happy.

I am now going to fund a M1 garand, A ton of 3006 and looking at a shiny new 1911 from either baer or Wilson..

I do computer work for a guy out here and get billet lowers or chrome BCGS for payment most of the time. I figured it was better then actual cash lol


So it was time for me to finally cash in for services rendered.

Yesterday on Gun Broker, I saw a stripped PSA lower that had been bid to $350. Last year PSA was selling these for $50. Caveat Emptor. :wow: Of course, PSA is out of stock on the same item and advising a minimum of 15 days to ship and more time for FFL items.

Now I am looking forward to all the people who will want to trade their classic pieces like Smith N Frames and Winchester/Marlin lever guns in for an AR.

I will happily sell a lower at an inflated price because some fool knows no better than to pay that amount.

I am selling a Socom II with 9 20 round mags to a guy making a 4 hour drive to get it. Sales price = $2300. I have decided to consolidate my semi auto's around the AR platform. Over the next few weeks I will likely sell Ak's, Mini's, ect. If a ban does go into effect at some point, simplifying parts, maintenance, ect makes sense. Not being able to simply buy new rifles really makes one focus on keeping what one has up and running.

One day at work I over heard her say "For the right price everything is for sale. Make an offer." :wow: My eye bugged out. My jaw dropped. She turned red. I am about ready to say something and she said, "we were talking about my car."

The few ARs I had from match winnings and some pieces/parts plus some rebuilt mags all got sold to friends who procrasticanted too long. Was glad to help them out.

The "public stock" of the gun companies got hammered last week, and they need to sell while they still can. Some of them that were on 2 shifts are going to 3 shifts after the first of the year. One that had been building ARs has ceasing building their own due to demand for the parts they manufacture. There will be some inventory loosening up in January, but not a lot until the debate has reached a conclusion of ban or no-ban and what that means.

One of the few times i agree with you. This is where class shows. Nothing more than profiteering stemming off a tragity. Just like some did after 911. These prices wouldn't be were they are now if it wasn't for the Sandy Hook crisis. Nothing wrong with making money but make it like a man a honest man and be proud.

The price gouging is full blast at the CalGuns for sale forum with people listing STRIPPED lowers from various makes at two bills and up with one genius trying to sell his polymer stripped lower for five hundred.

Thankfully, the mods are in full force and closing those threads, including the polymer five hundred guy who got told to take his "experiment in supply and demand" to Gunbroker.

When did you last check?

I finished my browsing late thursday afternoon. I didn't get to look at everything, but the places I visited, and called, seemed well stocked. I was suprised at how many bushmasters and other black rifles there were at academy.

There were at least a dozen AR's in boxes that I could see, and there were plenty of types of semi-auto shotguns and handguns. The AR mags and .223 were sparse, but that's how its been for the past 6 months, and no price gouging that I could discern. I'm sure it's changed now though.

Nobody was acting like the sky was falling, and when I would mention anything about an impending ban, folks would give me a dim stare and a "what?" Of course, if you've never lived anywhere else, you'd think the economy was booming and .gov had your best interests at heart. :rofl:

There is no way I would sell any of my AR's or AK's for basically any price. I have a real bad feeling they will pass another AWB. The House of Reps is our only chance. Of they cowboy up we are fine of not we are not. But we are in trouble the next time some crazy A-hole decides to go on a shooting rampage with a black gun. And it will most likely happen as bad as I hate to say it. If it does happen during all this Biden task force. Our beloved weapons are gone!!!

I gotta disagree with you on this one.

If anti-gun legislation is going to pass, it's going to happen in January or early Febuary. The anti-gunners have to move fast, before they lose their political momentum from Sandy Hook.

If I had an "extra" AR lying around, I'd take the chance and toss it up on GB.

If you get something like 3-4K for it, then sock the money away, you can be in a very good position IF there is not new anti-gun legislation passed. That way you could wait until things calmed down, and build yourself a really top-shelf AR with all the cool doo-dads.

I put up a beater SKS for an obscene price on Armslist. Funny thing is, there was some nitwit who had nothing better to do than write me nastygram about it.

Really? Are some people that pissed at the world that if someone is crazy enough to pay me a stupid volume of cash for a crappy rifle, then they feel they have to go off on me for being lucky enough to capitalize on it? Jeez.

Nope. I like what I've got and will wait for the dust to settle

Seriously? Over here on the northshore there is plenty of everything, last I checked. I just bought a 15-22 for $500 out the door at my local academy on thursday, and there were plenty of black rifles at other gun stores that I visited.

He drove down from Shreveport for it. Picked it up yesterday.

I had some people at work ask if I had one, and would be willing to sell.

I said sure.
At 3 times the price I paid.

Gun show next weekend, unfortunately, I sold my only extra AR to a dealer at a gun show months ago, when it wasn't worth crap. I wish I had the foresight to buy some lowers before the election, since something was obviously coming soon.

I agree. I would say some of the folks are happy the incident occurred so they can enjoy their monetary gains.

Believing as I do that the first impact from recent events will be an executive action affecting importation of arms and ammo, I am liquidating a rifle or two so that I have more cash to stock up on ammo. I am a firearms instructor so if there is no ammo, I am out of business. The monetary gain from the events is zero. I am simply hedging based upon what I expect to be the progression of the fallout. If the Brady bunch get their wishes, everyone in the industry is going to take a huge hit right along with Liberty. Nobody is going to see a gain without taking a hit somewhere else.

Certainly you sound like you are on the up & up but I was referring to what I am sure is a small group who would never admit it but are happy that they are making the margins they are now due to the shooting. In other words they don't look at it as a tragedy but a windfall.

Well the bottom line is if we ALL stop doing buisness with the price gougers and let them know it...maybe they would get the hint!

Im overseas at the moment, gt to love the sandpit, andwont be home for another 6 months (yeah). I have 4 striiped lowers in storage, where they will stay.

What may you ask am I planning for 4 builds? a 300B with a can., SBR/ pistol and for sure another A3 rife. If prices keep going like they are I may pass on one build to pay for the can.

I gotta disagree with you on this one.

If anti-gun legislation is going to pass, it's going to happen in January or early Febuary. The anti-gunners have to move fast, before they lose their political momentum from Sandy Hook.

You may be right, but when is the last time anything legislative has happened quickly?
