I guess I didn't ask the question right. Why is a spike lower less then a S&W lower ? Traditionally spikes was more $ and better quality

That makes sense . I guess people aren't doing any study before they buy stuff ,unlike us we will study , contemplate, ask questions and google before we buy a part. Well Atleast my Ar collection has almost doubled in value , not that I would ever sell one .

I've got to call BS on that. Absolutely no truth to it.

Before panic buying, stripped Spikes lowers often went for $80 while S&W rarely went under $120. And nothing wrong with Spikes but what makes you think they are higher quality than S&W? You might want to pick one up and look at it.

Just saw a stripped S&W lower at my LGS reserved that had a price tag of $599 today so that doesn't surprise me at all! I had to laugh though when I overheard the owner and manager debating about what they should do because they were losing "good customers." I totally support a free market, supply and demand. But when advantage is taken and you think that will have no repercussions, you're a fool. I'll stick with the businesses that have some virtue and care about retaining clients. Not just ripping off the uniformed. Even if the AWB goes into effect that doesn't mean I'll stop buying. I'll just buy another type. But you'd better believe I won't be buying from the douchebags that have known me for years and still tried to take advantage of me.
