    People are selling junk Frankenstien AR's for crazy amounts..

    And I am too blame.. I didn't even want an AR until " you know when "

    No I am thinking about selling my lower and upper for the principle of it!

    And I would too if I didn't have $100 worth of parts froM del-ton on order for the last month..


    I am so ashamed!

    I AM PART OF THE PROBLEM!

    the funny thing is I bought my lower before the election..... And I could probably build the whole thing for $600, but I still feel like kind of a jerk for falling for the hype.

    I admit, I bought an AR after the election. I really couldn't afford it, but I always wanted one and knew that it might be now or never. If anyone else is looking for an AR at a good price, I bought mine from Brightwater Ventures in Vancouver, and Mike there still hasn't raised prices in response to the recent events. I got a superior arms M4 for 780, but he also had several Bushmasters for $820 on up.

    I think if you look hard enough you can still find Bushmaster M4's for around $900 new, which is only around $50-100 more than before the election. Finding them is the hard part though ;)

    You can still find bushmasters for near pre-election prices if you look hard enough
