I went to my doctors appt. this morning in Alexandria,La. I stopped at the local WM just to look around. In the circular glass gun racks were (2) DPMS AR15's! The price, $596.97 each! I almost had a baby calf! What a time not to have money. :(

Damn, I have seen them on gunbroker for $1500. They are not the best in the market, but I have one, the AP4 model, and I have 5000+ rounds through it without a hiccup. I have a tick (shaking in my right arm), so I am not that good of a shooter these days, but a friend shot sub moa with it. Very accurate. And yes it is staked properly. I know the earlier ones weren't but mine is. Since I have eye and arm issues, I use a Eotech holo sight. Works good for us old guys. LOL

That's a dam good price. I paid $610 prior to all the hysteria. I think I would have put one on layaway if they still offer that

Nope, no layaway. :(
Time to apply for the WM credit card then :cool:

LOL.

By the way, I sold my DPMS tonight less than an hour after posting it for sale on armslist. The flat top rifle, 2 factory mags, 2 poly mags, 100 rounds for asking price $1200.

And truly at this time, $1200 was spot on. Bud's is selling them with just the factory mag for $1100 plus shipping and ffl fees

Man, that's crazy. It's all good though. When prices calm down and all those impulse buyers get their CC bills, the market will be flooded. That's when I will make my move!

If WM had them for 600, it had to be the sportacle. Not bad guns, but not near an AP4 or an Oracle.

But yet again, if you don't have one and want one, I would go for it. Who knows when this madness will end. And it may not end well.

You can still get custom builds, but it will be 6 to 9 months, and in the 3 grand range.

I bought my oracle locally brand new back in early Nov for $610. I can see WM selling them for 10-15 less

Hey, if I send you the cash will you send me the guns in parts via Fed-EX?

Last Time I handled a DPMS (LR-308B) was a .308 sporter flattop, without the dusk cover.

They had it for little less than $900, I had to pass on it, why? Meaning another caliber to stock up on. I already have .30-06 Mossberg and I can find those rounds compared to .308 ammo.

I own two DPMS ARs. A LR-308 with a stainless bull barrel and a 5.56 pistol.

I am quite pleased with both. The LR-308 is my favorite riffle. Also have a Colt, a PWA and an Olympic. Tossing ammo in any one of them, they all shoot well, using good ammo.

My favorite right now is the Olympic because they told NY to go pound sand!
