I just found two Colt 6920's for $1640 each. Before the Obama sale, they were $1550, which is still high. What prices have you seen lately for AR's?

I'm lucky to see that most of my vendors haven't raised prices (I buy online), but their backorder and stock is pretty much in dire straits.

as for my local gun shops... Well, I've avoided them. I bought a stripped lower for 20% more the original price on the Saturday after Obama won, then never went back in again since. I haven't been shooting in six weeks because that panic crap is out of control around me at the moment.

Where do you buy on line?

I visit the following and buy parts for my own builds:

bravocompanyusa.com
cmmginc.com
del-ton.com
cheaperthandirt.com
Copesdistributing.net
Stagarms.com

these are my favs for mags, bolt carrier groups, uppers and lowers, parts kits, ammo, and whatever else I need for ARs

del-ton is currently back-ordered for three months or more. CMMG is just as bad if not worse. Stag has yet to write me back. Most of bravo's inventory is gone. CTD is price-gouging. Cope's still had some AK and AR mags that I grabbed from them a few days ago.

This is a real bad time to be shopping for anything AK, AR, Glock, etc.-related. Good luck.

they were more like $1200 or $1250 before the panic.I think they will go back down again at least maybe to $1400 but maybe lower.I follow gunbroker constantly and can already see some have listed their guns too high to the point some aren't selling anymore.If they want them to sell they will either have to come back lower on price or write to Obama and beg that he pushes thru the ban as soon as possible so they can cash out on it.......

Dealer cost on LE 6920s went up $400 immediately following the election. Supply & Demand folks.

"dealer cost went up $400" and when they stop selling dealer cost will have to go back down again from the distributors and manufacturers.

Are the features worth it to you? Is buying one now and having it worth it; versus waiting and hoping for lower prices?

Nope they are not. I have one, but would consider something from
CMP if I did not have it

I started watching gunbroker after the election. I noticed this week that prices have started to drop. Maybe just me, but I hope everyone who wanted to buy one at any price has scored theirs, and there might be one left for me. Unfortunatly, I want one particular model (Colt) so it narrows my choices.

Well, I bought the 6920 today, and a Rock River stripped lower.
