    Even if demand stays somewhat high, if production catches up or in fact increases, absent any new laws, then prices should fall from their current premiums.

    Will be interesting to see how long demand stays THIS strong. Unlike the federal government...we can't keep printing money to spend.

    Just sitting on the sidelines. I don't stand to make a fortune but I didn't get myself into a panic situation either.

    Dang, I have a PSA AR I built myself about 6 months ago - the components cost $640 - I'm tempted to make myself some money.

    Of course I believe that even if the AWB doesn't happen, that prices might not drop to earlier levels for a while.

    Man oh man the stupid strikes fast nowadays.

    If this is anything like 2009, then a lot of that stuff they bought high on credit cards will turn up on Gunbroker at a discount when they can't push the plastic payoff back far enough. Let's at least look forward to that!

    My guess is the AR manufacturers will hold up on production till they know for sure what will happen. As a result prices will continue to climb.

    QoT, at least one AR manufacturer reports ramping up production with 12 hour days and working weekends. ;)

    From some discussions I have had with various distributors and sellers, it seems that there will be a concerted push to get as much product out as fast as possible in the coming months. With luck, increased supply will lower demand to allow those of us (myself included) who have ongoing projects to get them done.

    Did so many folks fail their civics lessons? Ex post facto is specifically spoken about in Article 1 Secotion 9. No way that DiFi can get our existing firearms removed from us by declairing them 'illegal'. Keep up the pressure, we can win this one. Yes, this is coming from someone that regularly votes Democrat.

    Are these buy it now, auction or a mix? Sorry. Not clicking on all the links. I think I'm starting to see actual sale prices fall a bit. But that may not be proven by the numbers if I studied it.

    1k of M855 sold for $1,200+ the other day. :rolleyes:
    It's called "penetrator" but ATF doesn't even have it listed as AP anymore.

    I have a 223 AK drum that I'm taking to the gunshow tomorrow but will probably wind up listing on GB, we'll see how it goes.

    Actually there are uncountable droves of people calling for new, stricter gun control legislation.

    Yes, and they were spurred to action by the acts of one person.

    Yup. I assumed the 'kaos' that he mentioned was the panic buying and not the knee-jerk reactions to the shooting.

    Look at the prices for 5.7 pistols, ammo and mags. Prices are too good to ignore and I'm now looking for a buyer for mine. People are actually paying $65 a box for a 50 round box. I see no other option as it's crazy to not sell it. I'm taking a hard look at what I have and deciding if I want to keep it.

    I"m happy to have found a big stack of 9mm at the local Academy this evening. Never thought I'd be happy to buy Monarch steel cased ammo. $10 a box.

    the way the new AWB is written it bans future transfer of any kind, gift, sale etc. That means that upon your death your estate must turn in the guns, you cannot pass them on to your kids or have your estate sell them.

    That's not a "new AWB". Its a proposed bill that's swinging for the fences.

    I put a Mega Arms AR-10 receiver on back order for a few hundred. Saw some (just receiver upper/lower sets) going for around 2k.

    I am selling my CZ58 and will hopefully make a hundred or two off it. Not asking anything crazy for it.

    All of the auctions / values I have quoted in this thread have been auctions with active bid activity; meaning, someone entered a bid, and bid on the item.

    I have excluded "no bid" or "buy now" auctions from the beginning.

    Nice. Thanks for your work on keeping us updated. Still looks like most entry and mid level ARs have doubled. Pmags $40-$50. 556 ammo still nuts.

    Found a bunch of 9mm in stock locally and thought I struck steel cased gold.
