    Has anyone been able to tell if the run up in Cabbage Patch, i mean "assault rifle" prices are being run up across the board?

    Is the 800 dollar AR selling for 1300 today because people have a potentially higher Gouging market?

    Are the 1600 dollar AR's selling for 3k today?

    are the 2500 dollar ARs selling for 5k?

    Any way you cut it you cant get mags or ammo for them, but is now a good time to buy that 1600 dollar AR (if its still 1600 dollars) and skip getting your eyes gouged out by a fellow gunlover(or gunhater profiteering). Some of these prices make you think the next step is for the seller to ask you to get on your knees and face away from them

    I saw the rifle i bought marked up to 899 from 649 yesterday while looking for ammo. That and pmags were 29 dollars. It's pretty ridiculous how quick things have gone up in price.

    $1600 AR might be $3200 in a month. Think about it, you may have lost 100k in your house value over the past couple years. So what if an AR costs $3200 it's better to have it than not. Like it or not, this is where the market is at right now.

    The biggest jump I've seen is in already hard to find firearms and mags. Looking at FN SCAR 17 prices, I bought mine last Thursday and now I could just about double that price. Mags were $40 then, and now I could easily quadruple that. ON GB, someone sold 6 mags for $1200 or so.

    Same here! I haven't bought anything firearms related(besides ammo) in almost 2 years until I saw the Dicks $799 AR sale, which I still didn't receive! Paid Dicks and they still haven't received the shipment yet and now some dicks are pulling AR's off their selves I'm not even sure if I ever will see it :(

    I can't believe the crap semi auto's people are selling on here for an outrageous amount. I know it's not just here it's everywhere. I wish I owned a gun store.
