BS!!!!!!!!! Its still stupid out there and I say if you think my price is to high. Move along someone else will or I will keep it. And guess what? Someone forked over the Ben Franklin's no haggling, nothing.
Things are just crazy right now. I've sold 5 BCGs on Ebay for a combined $1550. Probably had $650 into the batch. When I decided to drop $300 on a Noveske lower to complete a build, I sold a BCG on Ebay for $370 to cover it. And then I bought two more of the same BCG for $380 total. I actually have a good replenishing source for that part, so that's worked out well (I like to keep an extra M16 BCG or two on hand for spare parts or future builds).
I watch Bud's auction off a Colt AR with an upgraded quad rail for like $4k, while I build a very similar (but part for part, superior) gun for $1200....funded by the sale of my DPMS, a gun I was actually quite happy with, BTW. But my build is not a "factory" Colt...oh well, I suppose I can live with that $3000 shortcoming...Noveske lower, FN barrel, Cerakoted M16 BCG, etc...I'm okay with that.
Honestly, ignorance seems to be tripping over itself to pay a heavy price at the moment. Part of me wonders if that's the way the world ought to work.
