We all know recently since past few months, prices on firearms and ammo had gone up rapidly. Some said due to the Obama election thingy, supply & demand or maybe something else. I bought my Daniel Defense V4 for about $1300+ from my LGS last november. I could get it for $100-300 cheaper but somehow the online retailer which i ordered from had none aka backorder. And now an average brand new DD V4 is about at least $1300-1400, if you are lucky enough to get it online. The MSRP shown at DD site is about $1679. Same thing with a Spike's enhanced lower which i got it on february, i noticed Spike's increased $25-50 for the same one. My question is, excuse me for being curious, how much and when were they (any kind of firearms, guns, rifles, class 3 & etc) when you bought yours 1, 2, 3, 5 or more years ago? We see threads everyday like building this and that, this vs that, so let's talk about past prices vs present prices.
