    I'm seeing complete assembled lowers going for $400+

    I've got a complete DPMS lower with an assembled DPMS parts kit and a cheapy 4 position stock that I'll probably never use. I already have two complete AR-15s....

    Put it up for sale for $4-500 and see if anybody is crazy enough to buy it? :dunno:

    I think you're a little too optmistic but capitalism slaps you on the back and says go right ahead.

    I raped some people on magpuls at the gun show a couple months ago. didnt buy them with the intention to resell though, I just ended up realizing I didnt need as many. Not something I want to do alot.

    Stripped. The market has fallen out for lowers and mags. The rush is on ammo now.

    Even the last batch of BCM uppers that people snapped up for $475 aren't selling at $600. I saw one originally listed at $650 plus shipping get knocked down to $580 shipped and it STILL hasn't sold. Best part was the SN was "brokestudent" :rofl:

    Why? Wait for prices to go back to pre-election levels. Nothing is going to happen before the midterm elections. Pelosi and Reid have both said they aren't interested in reinstating the AWB. 65 Democratic congressmen have gone on the public record as against it. It's not going to happen any time soon.

    Media is already filling up with anti-gun propaganda.. the steam is there, all they need is someone to open the valve and start the locomotive.

    Ok, you take the Dems at face value.

    They have such a history (well, politicians in general) of being so honest and forthright..

    In the past six months, the gun culture of America has proven to politicians how important guns are. I would be interested to see how many of those purchases were by first-time gun owners; I'll bet it's at a record level. Congressmen aren't blind; they know we care about our guns and if they try to fuck us on them, they will lose their jobs. The 15 year old lesson of the lashing we gave them over the Clinton AWB is still in their memory. Ignoring the Democrats' statements opposing the AWB and continuing to hoard is what's keeping prices from falling to their normal levels at a faster rate. When I was at Brownell's, they mentioned that when the AWB is mentioned in the press, they get a surge of phone calls and orders. That's the kind of behavior, when rooted in irrational fear, that's fucking us.
