Egregious Price Gouging Thread
Submit your examples of truly appalling opportunistic Price Gouging.

Your $350 magazines & your $50 a box.223 Ammo.
If we can't do anything about it, we might as well poke fun.

$350 magazine, 60 round (originally $90ish.) h=

The $50 to $70 PMag is getting pretty common out here.

I have avoided sights that are gouging. It will calm down soon. Magpul will be in overdrive making black 30 round mags when they get back from vacation. Ammo will catch up.

I support capitalism. They have every right to ask what ever they think they can soak the suckers for.
That said, I have every right to point out the douchiness of some of it.

Stopped by my LGS yesterday- needed to pick up some 20 g buckshot to go with a Christmas present. They had every employee they had working (and asked if I could spend some time talking with 2 folks that were in need of information). Place was packed!

They are sold out of every AR/ AK type rifle they have (except one Cali compliant DPMS- which NO ONE wants to buy! :p) They have about 40-50 a few days ago. Their prices on rifles, ammo and mags did not change- if it sells, it sells. If we sell out, we sell out. We do not screw our customers.

Meanwhile, gun show 30 miles away, ridiculous prices on everything- and herds of people clutching money trying to get in the door.

And THAT is why my LGS is my LGS.

my local lgs pulled all their 30 round mags off the shelf made sure they had four for each of their ar15 to offer to people who purchased a rifle and if they didnt buy the mags they put them on the shelf. they didnt raise prices except on one idiot while i was there who was bitching about them saving mags for the folks that were buying a rifle. they told him he could buy all they had for 500$ a pop everyone else 15$

I am seeing a lot of "self inflicted wounds" on Gunbroker. $1000.00+ bid for a WASR 10? Someone is going to be heart-broken if a few months.

Arms list in ky has plenty of 1500 DPMS ARs and aks. $70 pmags. Through the roof ammo.

What comes to mind is the FN SCAR 17 that normally sells for $1500-$1800 is now selling for close to $4000

Check with CDNN. They were holding the price line last time I checked. Ebay will blow your mind. dba2 2141
