    You could try calling your local store, that is if they pick up and have someone working that department.

    For some reason, their AR inventory list is a secret...online only shows a couple of AR style rifles....and getting info from an employee....REALLY???!!! Not exactly helpful is a nice way to label my experience with that. Certainly someone knows what AR's Wally has contracted for...would love to know how much they are going to undercut my beloved local retailers by...

    Q,

    The last time I was at our Walmart they had a Charles Daly and a Sig AR. Didn't see any Rock River, Smith & Wessons, DPMS, Bushmaster or others.

    You really have to go in and check their inventory, it varies all over. My nearest WM has the Colt 6920 ($1047) and Sig M400.

    Sniper03, interesting yours has Charles Daly! Good rifle... but they probably want as much as a Colt.

    None of the Wal-Marts near me even sell guns.

    You could call your local store and ask them what they have.
    You do realize that if you wish to buy one, you will have to enter the building? If Wal-Mart is that painful for you, why would you buy anything from them at all? You could buy one somewhere else and completely spare your self the trauma of shopping there.
    If you say "because they're cheaper there," you surrender all rights to ***** about them.

    I just bought a dpms sportical 556/223 from Walmart. I know they have sig556 and colt m4 partolmans rifles. I paid $597 for mine, called around and everyone else wanted atleast $720 so its a steal. Came with 2 30rnd mags. No sights though

    They carry a few accessories as well. Blackhawk slings and grips, a few blackhawk holsters. As the manager was walking me out with my rifle he said they plan on carrying american ak's. Now if they can only keep the ammo supply well stocked!

    Well unfortunately some people need to save money and buy elsewhere. If you have the extra $150 to send to him to give to his LGS you should.;). If I found a deal like that I would not hesitate and jump all over it. I've bought my guns from either the LGS or Cabelas, but if I looked around I probably could have saved money.

    As far as paying more at a LGS it depends. First off, did they go the extra mile to earn their price premium? I only have one locally that does. If Walmart has a good deal you should check it out. And don't forget there are plenty of excellent online vendors that deserve your business.

    In a free market, it's adapt or die. If Wal-Mart has the best deal, go for it.

    I don't lose any sleep over "mom n pop" after what I learned here a few years ago

    Seems most of the sporting goods/hardware/etc stores belong to a statewide "buyer's cooperatrive." They get stuff for 10-15 percent BELOW normal wholesale.

    But do they cut prices to compete???? HELL NO! They charge full MSRP, then they ***** about Wally, Big 5 etc undercutting them.

    Do you feel sorry for them???? I don't!:mad:

    I dunno if this applies to guns. But Wal-mart sells all kinds of things. Like appliences, and electronics. I have a really good friend who is an Ex for HP. I asked him if I should buy a HP laptop at wal-mart as it was less expensive, than the HP website. He said go ahead, but we make those with much less quality than the ones we sell here?

    I wonder if the gunz at wallyworld are a bit of less quality? Just my .02

    Heh. I bought one direct from him for about 1/4 retail. I guess he can do that 4 times a year, and not get an *** kicking.

    Short answer.....no.

    The guns you get at Wal-Mart are the exact same you get from the scalpers.
