Default Gun prices returning to normal

Article I was reading today about AR and other gun prices coming back down fast.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/06/24/the-reason-you-may-regret-having-bought-that-ar-15-earlier-this-year/

I still can't believe I sold a used poly lower for $400.

A coworker picked up a m&p 15, 30 round pmag, and a box of ammo at a lgs for $700.

Availability has definitely increased recently for everything except .22 bulk ammo it seems.

I agree with you Tex that we will see some amazing deals on guns in the near future, ammo is expendable though so I think prices will stabilize but there won't be an ammo bubble in my opinion.

What I see happening with the ammo is that the people who were stocking up on it to resell it are going to find themselves screwed. They're going to end up holding a ton of ammo that they can't sell for a profit. They would probably have a hard time just breaking even on it. They'll have to sell it at a loss. Good for us, bad for them.

That's great news for fans of the AR... I hope the prices dropped for other guns as well?

Well , lucky me..! I was well on my way to harmonic balance of sorts between
Ammo and just how much I shoot.! Mags , extra parts , all things needed to get through these bedazzling times..!

This whole thing did not effect me much at all ,mucky me..!

guns, yes.

ammo, not quite.

i sold a pmag and another junk mag for $60 during the madness. i regret not capitalizing on it and selling my AR....probably coulda turned it around for an M1A.
