I stumbled onto a $1097 Colt LE6920 this morning at my local walmart. It came in Monday. I was surprised to hear that there has only been one other person asking for the colt since the recent uprise. They usually sell the lesser expensive guns she said. Of course I purshased it.

I was surprised of the lack of demand for this gun at this walmart.

Evidently the people spending more money on M4's are going to dedicated gun shops. The Colt I got for Christmas yesterday came from Walmart.

The Wal-Mart by me also has the same Colt carbine for sale. They must either have a lot of them in the stockroom or nobody wants to buy it. It has a price tag on it for around $960.00.

If Colt made a mid-length model and that was the model Wal-Mart carried, I would be tempted to pick it up. I just donít care for the M4 look.

Actually I didn't just stumble on to it.....I found that on Walmarts website, you can put in your email and it will notify you when an item is in stock. I did this on monday, and this morning when I checked my email, it had the notice that it was back in stock. I was shocked. I called the store, and she said she had only one come in. I got there...and it wasn't in the case. Asked an associate, and she said, yes we have it...its still in the back.

2 interesting observations.....

they will not "hold" it

and, you do not pay until you pick it up (i am in illinois)

Very good day for me.

Our Walmarts around here (Akron) are pretty anti-gun. Lousy ammo selection even on good days. No guns at all.

All the walmarts here sold out and people who are looking for one checked walmart and then moved onto other gun stores, now walmart is restocking a few but people dont seem to be rechecking. I stopped in today but they didnt have any.

Sorry for the late reply but I paid 1050 for the 2t. A tad under msrp, I figured it wasn't a bad price.

I lived in Akron for 3 years in Goodyear Hts. Not a real fan of it. However, I do still have and enjoy my Glock 30 that I bought used at Dickís Gun Room in 2001. :supergrin:

Ironically, my ex-wife called me the other evening to ask if that was a good price... she left the store with the last one they had in stock. (We haven't got along very well in the past, but one thing we do agree on is that every law abiding citizen has the RKBA.)

When I bought my Rock River in November, it was originally supposed to be a January tax return purchase. But miy wife and I both saw how difficult it was to find the national match model with removable carry handle, and NYS compliant (no flash hider or bayonet lug).

When I found one, we didn't hesitate to purchase. It actually came from Illinois. Was glad to get it.

Now today when I check their website for the heck of it, they don't have any RRA in stock, not stainless, not AWB compliant, not m4 style, not nuthin'. No Colt or Daniels left either. But I do see they have 1 AR left in stock, a DPMS 24" in .260 Rem.

Smokin762,
Grew up in Goodyear Heights, my wife and I live in Uniontown not far from Hartville, the Heights have really gone down hill since I graduated in the late eighties. My parents were smart and sold in 96 and moved to Mogadore. Didn't know Dick's gunroom was still around, been years since I been there.

I will tell you here in local Wal-Marts they are selling within 1/2 hour of coming in the back door. They arrive via UPS/FedEx so there is no set time each day nor is there any advance notice. It really is a luck thing to be at the right place right time on these right now. Mine from Wal-Mart here this past Monday came from a Wal-Mart in Virginia. They could not sell them because they came with 20 round mags so they shipped them to Wal-Marts in Texas to sell. Two came in and were both sold back to back within 10 mins of hitting the floor. Could have been sold 2 more times while I was buying mine and doing the paperwork, people were vocal about the fact the store was out of them.

Keep trying and you will get lucky I bet :)

AS RUGGLES SAID keep looking they are out there , what i did was call 15 stores with 75 miles of me . i called all of them daily .
i took notes
asked when they got them
how many shipments a week

narrowed it down to 3 stores which doing the math showed best chance of scoring 1 . in 2 days i scored 2 :supergrin:

sold both this week for 2 grand each . not to bad . i made enough to now buy me a free one :rofl::rofl:

I picked up an Windham Weaponry SRC on December 18th at my local Walmart. $799.00. Currently they having nothing, but shotguns on their racks.

The price gouging by some online retailers and local businesses is sadly unethical. I know the law of supply and demand, but if you abuse your customers they will remember and shop elsewhere in the future.

I went to my local Walmart and they no longer sell gun related magazines and periodicals. I used to pick up a Shotgun News there. So, I doubt they'll ever carry an AR15.

clint curtis
01-04-2013, 21:03
Went to the local Wallyworld today. They have a list of names of people wanting to buy an AR15 . As of today, there are over 60 names! The clerk said they haven't received any gun related stuff after the Killing.

Ruggles
01-04-2013, 21:32
Local Wal-Mart still selling everything firearm related they did before this mess began. ARs are still arriving but in much lower numbers because of the demand nationwide. Supply is the only issue with buying any of this stuff from Wal-Mart, nothing at all to do with company policy.

No list of names being collected for ARs either. I could see that being a mess, "no I don't want the DPMS you got in but don't pull me off the list, just call me when brand X arrives" Too much confusion there IMO.

Im on the email list for all of my local wal marts that carry ars. I went to two of them last week and both said they are still receiving them periodically. If i get the email and make it in time im buying all of them i can. Im really hoping for one of the sig ones. Im not betting on it happening though so im going to get that lmt lower i talked about in another thread. A buddy of mine put me on with his shop today because they had a flat top bushwhacker and a flat top m&p for $1400 each. Pass.

Just a heads up that mailing list is not entirely accurate. Wednesday emails were sent out locally that the Sig400 was in stock at the local WM. Not the case at all. None arrived at all.

Not saying it is never right but I would call before rushing down to the store to make sure :)

Yeah thats kind of what i figured but im hoping to get lucky like the op. Gun clerk at one wal mart said they are usually gone within 20 minutes. I did put my email into all wal marts within 2 hours that carr ars. I did it for the 2 sigs the windham and the colt. The sigs or the windham i would keep. The colt i would sell and then use the money to build my own. Hope i can score one!

True that. Reselling private property in onesey/twoseys is one thing, but buying and immediately re-selling is borderline dealing.

And yeah, on other gun boards you'd be pounced on SOUNDLY and mercilessly for boasting to us that you are profiteering on us as you did.

When Wallymart institutes ammo limits again and/or stops all EBRs sales, then what?

What is happening is that Wal Mart has superior buying power and has a lot of them at their warehouses. Great price. Now the guys that are paying 4 grand for the same firearm will eat crow if nothing happens with bans. :embarassed: I have found some really good prices at WalyWorld over the years. It pays to check them out.

WalMart stores receives guns from Lipseys and directly from Remington, Mossberg and a few other companies. The 5.56 mm ARs come from Lipseys. None of the guns go thru the WM warehouse, they arrive directly to the store via UPS. Which is also why the stores never know exactly when they will arrive in store. So no need to start chasing those WM 18 wheelers down the road :supergrin:

Hogwash. If i buy something and then decide its not what i want its my right to sell it. If i buy ten thats another story but less than 3 no. If some jackwagon wants to pay triple what i paid for it thats up to them. Just helps me to take the money and get exactly what i want. Furthermore by doing so we also get more grandfathered rifles onto the market before any possible ban.

Exactly. Those that say buying & selling makes you a dealer don't understand the laws pertaining to this subject. Thank god that's not the case because that's all we need is more regulation of free people. Stop spreading these false rumors because eventually if enough people believe it as fact it becomes easy to make it law.

Glad you got one :)

I think the AR supply to WM is just about over. The ones received the last few weeks were already in the supply system when this started. That has dried up now so I think it will be a while before the flow starts again.

Yeah i think youre probably right. Now i just need to start watching for ammo! Lol! I think ammo supplies will bounce back pretty quickly. Pistol ammo at least is still pretty readily available in my area. I think i have a good way to buy future ars in my area so i will probably buy a couple more and see what i like and go from there.

Sure. You can request a blood sample and drug test too but you may be waiting a while to sell your item. I know that I personally will never buy a firearm face to face from anyone who requires more than a peak at a driver's license to verify I'm a Colorado resident. It's a free country and as the seller you're free to ask for whatever you want from the buyer though.

If GOUGING a fellow gun enthusiast that didn't get a chance to hit Wallymart as often as you did makes you feel like a fine upstanding gentleman - so be it.

But don't even try to rationalize your GOUGING by saying that you've introduced another grandfatherable "EBR" into the shooting ranks; someone would have bought that from WM regardless of your GOUGING re-sale.

And we can ALL claim to "understand gun laws" all day long and twice on Sundays - it's what the cowboys at the ATF understands that counts; their rules, their game.

For every 'GOUGING' seller there's a buyer voluntarily giving up his money for the item. If buyers weren't buying sellers wouldn't be able to get the prices they are. Stop acting like people are being FORCED to buy items. #freemarket

So im the bad guy for selling a gun i dont want for the most money possible? Im not forcing anyone to buy. If they can get a better deal elsewhere they are certainly free to do so. Stop crying because you cant find one. Im going to try to get another model next time and then something different the time after that. Maybe ill keep them all maybe ill sell one or two. Ill sell for whatever they are going for on auction sites. Seems pretty fair to me. Maybe you can have your buddy obama come in and regulate our free market on rifles eh comrade?

It's never 'gouging' if it's not an essential item. Nobody 'has' to have an AR. The market determines the value.

I have Saiga 12 magazines on ebay right now, bid up to over double what I paid for them. Am I gouging people?

I was wrong, local WM got a AR in today. Windham (SP?) Weaponry. Sold in under 10 min to a "lurker" These are a group of guys who hover around each morning waiting to see what if any guns come in, I would guess for resale but who knows. So maybe there will be more ARs arriving.

I could duck out for an hour if i got the email but it would take me 20 minutes to get there. Sucks because of everything run of the mill that the big boxes carry the one i want the most would be the sig from wal mart with the prismatic scope. Oh well.

I said i want the sig. I didnt come on here crying that they are going for 2k at auction did I? To me an auction demonstrates true market value. If i was going to drop that kind of coin i would bave my builder build me something of much better quality than the sig. Give it up and go cry to obama. Your focus should be on writing your lawmakers and fighting for our rights, not running around crying about how the market values of ars is through the roof.

Just grabbed a 6920 at a Walmart while visiting my parents, small city, but got another;)

no luck at my walmart. Was told that it had to be a trade up store to carry the AR's. Nearest one is 35miles away. I'm sure guys that are local to that Walmart are waiting each day when the shipment comes in to buy it up. Not going to even bother to drive out to the store to know none are available and have to drive back home.

Don't blame you at all. With a 15 minute shelf life when they arrive it is a needle in a hay stack type deal IMO.

Looks like the pricing is leveling off at least on the secondary market.

3 ARs arrived yesterday locally. Two Colts and a DPMS, all sold instantly. Had AR lurkers back in store this morning but no ARs. Not using lurkers offensively just that is what they do, lurk around sporting goods waiting for anything to be put out.

Two more Windham (SP?) ARs coming locally from WalMarts in VA. That model comes with 30 rd mags (2) and can't be sold in that state so they are shipping them to local WM.

Brazoria county. South of Houston, along the Gulf Coast. First Capital of Texas and birthplace of Texas Independence :)

Colts are tough right now of course, the two that arrived yesterday were a surprise.

Seem store level orders are being allowed on all brands of ARs Wal-Mart carries except Sig. Now keep in mind just because a store can place an order does not mean it will be filled. Kinda like a big ol backorder system I guess. But Sig is not taking any orders at all. Unsure why.:dunno:

Also these are orders for the store not for individuals, no way for stores to do that. Just to make that clear.

Ammo...well that is just not coming into stores with regards to the popular calibers selling right now.

You bought .223 ammo today at a store? Yeah, I'd say you did good.

Yeah you should have bought ALL of the .223. Pistol ammo is still ok for the most part around me but 7.62x39 and .223 are non existant. Im not worried because the ammo supply will bounce back eventually.

Hell, it was even on sale. Is $1 a round good for 5.56? Plus I found a couple of guys that were letting P-Mags go for only $60 each. Christmas all over again.

Lmfao! I about had a cow when i was reading the first couple of lines thinking you knew where to get some ammo at a reasonable price. I did get 3 pmags and a regular 30 round ar mag for 130 off armslist today. Not bad considering the circumstances really. That way im covered if my back orders from brownells dont make it through before any sort of magazine ban. Ammo doesnt worry me as much. The supply will bounce back.
