    Colt LE6920 AR-15 whats a descent price on that now?

    Its weird it seems like the prices on AR's have dropped over $500 dollars over night on gunbroker.com; yesterday they seemed to all be going for like 22-2300 now its like 15-1600.

    The pre-panic price was around $1100, so the closer you can get to that price the better.

    If you're willing to camp out at Walmart, they're still priced at the pre-panic level, or just under $1,100

    How often do they get shipments at Walmart? Theres 3 Walmarts in Houston that carry it but theyre all sold out. I am willing to camp, when do they get shipments in? Daily? Weekly? Monthly? Will they get a new shipment a year from now? I dont know how that works.

    around here they get marked $2000 when they go on the shelf and rarely last more than a few min

    i wouldn't call that 'decent' though :)

    A guy posted on another board that he talked to S&W the other day and that they are building thousands of AR's each day and that they advised him to not overpay to those trying to take advantage of the situation and that other manufacturers are building lots also and the market will be flooded in a few weeks. Take it for what it's worth but I will bet that by late Feb to early March that prices will be back to where they were in November.

    Prices will return to normal. Just wait; no ban will pass. Buy a nice Garand, bolt-action hunting rifle, or that lever action rifle you've always wanted.

    ^good to know thanks.

    When I said 15-1600 Im referring to AR's in general. Most Colts are $500 more.

    I paid $1699.90 for a Colt LE 6920 SOCOM II at Cabela's. This rifle has the Daniel Defense RIS free float quad rail, Matech rear BUIS, and two Colt marked 30 round magazines. Also came with a sling and cleaning kit.

    Figure the DD rail is probably around $395.00 and the rear sight is probably another $100 or so more or less. That should account for the extra $500.

    The barrel contour is a bit different than the govt' profile as it is heavier under the fore end as the DD rail has an M203 hanger built in.

    Two weeks ago, at one of the busiest gun stores in the state, I stood in line behind three different individuals who were ordering Colts for $1500. They were told the wait would be around three to four months.

    $1050 at my LGS, $1100 now, though I am not sure if that's a distributor price increase. Raising it $50 is a pretty lousy attempt at gouging and I've been a long time customer. They have the lowest prices around. Guns are barely marked up.

    I think that stores are over estimating the wait times. Also, I've seen a lot of guns walking around at the gun shows in Houston for $1600-$1800, but not many selling at that price. Assuming nothing crazy happens in the next few months, guns will be available. Don't pay too high a premium now unless you just have to have one.

    OP: no one here is likely to know the wal Mart delivery schedule, and not all wal marts will get these guns in. From what I hear, the wal marts that do carry these guns have large waiting lists of people that put guns on layaway. Call around to some Walmarts and see what they have to say, and call around to some other local gun shops. Some are selling at reasonable prices, others aren't, but these guns are just hard to come by.

    Not even the WalMart associates in the store know when guns are coming in until they show up. Local WalMart sold 2 Colts and a Bushmaster (regular prices) within an hour of them coming in this week. I don't need another AR but have to admit if I'd have happened to be there at the right time, might have got a Colt, already have two flawless Bushmasters.

    Unfortunately it's only a matter of time until an evil person acts out on the craziness again. So many people have had their minds wrecked by this death obsessed culture that the likely hood of something happening again and soon is high. Just hopefully there can be a good person with a gun to meet him and stop him.

    It's good to be positive however freedom is never easy so work from the premise that we will have a ban, continue pressure on your representatives and join the NRA or other firearm organization. I also thought no one was stupid enough to pass a ridiculous health care bill that would ruin our system but here we are.

    Breakingcontact is right. I have quit watching the news for that reason. Every time someone says "there was another shooting today" ,I cringe....

    My Walmart gets it's firearm shipments on Monday and Tuesday. I am in a little Podunk town two days from everywhere though. As far as $1500-1600 for a Colt, that isn't too horrible. I seen them pre-panic at almost that price. It is totally up to you. I personally will not pay panic prices, just because I do not need anything else. I can only say that because I had stocked up on most things I needed.

    Found out my local Walmart gets their guns in before 1pm. They said they got a Colt in yesterday and it lasted only 5 minutes. That could of been me! I thought about going, I could of waited a couple hours and got it. I should probably go back today and pray they get another Colt in. Does that mean they get Colts in often? or it might be a while before they get another Colt? At least people arent waiting for them there. At Academy I heard there where a dozen people waiting before it opened, only one AR came in and the guy who was waiting since 2:30am got it.

    You could bring over a folding chair from camping and just sit at the counter
