I went to a gun show in August and then came back to the same venue in December. There was an interesting contrast to both shows, particularly around AR-15's. I was expecting AR-15 prices to be through the roof with any reasonably priced examples being quite rare due to the election and the ongoing panic buying. In August the cheapest AR-15 I could find was $695, but the average seemed to be closer to $800 to $900. Loaded examples were going for $1500 and there were numerous AR-15's going for over $2000. I'm not counting anything not based on the standard Armalite/Colt platform. No SCAR's, no ACR's, etc. In December, the cheapest AR-15's were about $650 and $700 to $750 versions were common. The average was still in the mid $800 but the "loaded" versions were easy to find under $1,000. There were a few going up to $1500. I could have counted on one hand how man $2000 rifles I saw. This despite gun show attendance being much higher. I've been wondering when the AR-15 bubble is going to pop. Who doesn't already own one that wants one? I'm actually waiting until after Christmas to see if prices will drop further, though the AR-15 is not my top choice. Oh, good luck to the US Government trying to ban these rifles. There has got to be millions of AR-15 rifles in private hands by this point.
