    Well I guess it was inevitable but it seems parts for AR's and ammo has suddenly skyrocketed by 30-50%


    I'd been saving up for a while to buy a lower and parts kit for my first AR.

    Finally got the cash(I refuse to get credit cards) and wouldn't you know it everything way more expensive than last week.

    Spikes tactical lowers went from 110 to 180. Local place had dpms complete lowers for 195 now they are 250.

    I actually drove down to a place that had a lower in stock but sold it over the phone in the 5 minutes it took me to call and confirm they had it then drive there. They did have a stripped cmmg lower for 175 though.

    anybody else seeing this locally as well?

    Supply and demand. Demand is high, so prices will go up.

    I knew I should have gotten an AR-15 a year ago. Now I'll probably end up paying a couple hundred more. Of course, I'm betting that it'll always keep that value, so I can look at it as an investment. At least that's what I'll tell the wife. ;)
