    has the ar-15 wave finally crested? seeing lots in AR 15's in local shops once again in the $800 range. Even buds gun shop, one of the worst gun seller\gougers of all in my opinion, has bushmasters in the 8-900 range. yesterday at Cabelas there must have been a thousand P mags for sale in a huge display and the local gun shop is advertising them for 17 bucks. Anyone else having similar experience, or just us over here in eastern Washington.

    I saw a bin of pmags at the security store in hillsboro, oregon same deal, $17.99. All the 5.56 ammo was spendy tho, .80 cents a round.. The guns and parts are reasonable, the ammo is the spendy part.

    Meh - they probably just finally figured out that a gun with no ammo isn't worth jack.

    I've been keeping an eye on the lowers and they seem to be dropping too. I'm not buying until they get back to $100 though.

    I've been in several shops in W WA and Nevada Reno/Carson in the last 2 weeks and have seen at least a couple dozen ARs and some AKs for sale at half way decent prices but not pre December. New weapons all except for some at a pawnshop they were really proud of. I hope it is over. If FT employment comes through and I'll be getting me a BCG for my birthday before July.

    :p

    Ditto. I want SBR a lower and put a 22LR upper on it with a barrel just long enough that the suppressor sticks out past the handguard an inch or 2.

    But not until I can get a lower for under $100 because all the other stuff will cost $$$.
