Good luck on those RRA uppers. Regardless what you buy from them ,its usually at least 3 months and I would guess you will be waiting at least that long now. I been watching gun sites and the buyers that were gonna jump off the cliff have already jumped and people are starting to drop the prices as a lot are relisting lower price every few days. I see these double stars priced at 2000 ,that should make my RRA pred pursuit worth about 3500. Lmao!!!!!!!

Good luck.....Ive had a RR 20"LAR-8 upper ordered for 2 months. They are giving an indefinite backorder. Oh well....


Dad, Ordered ours 2 weeks ago. May be awhile. But I can wait no problem. I didn't even know he ordered them until 2 days ago. When I was talking about buying. Might have to cancel them and then buy off gun broker like we did the lowers.

Well it all depends....

You get all these greedy SOB's out here buying up stuff left and right so as other people can't buy anything because the self is empty.... Then they are trying to sell all that horded up stuff at ridiculous prices.... reasonable profit is one thing.... double or triple is pathetic..... market or not.

Why *some* profit ok, but double is not? What exactly is "some" profit? How do you set that number? WHY do you get to set that number for two other people engaging in free trade?

Either you are for FREE market, or you are not. There is no middle ground.

Well $80 for a $20 magazine is crazy..... $2,000 for a $850 rifle is crazy.... $1,000 for $400 worth of ammo is crazy....

Now how many people were crying to boycott Cheaper Than Dirt for jacking up their prices when they did.... how are independent sales any different?


If a person has the money and wants to pay double or triple for something.... I could care less.... But when I need some ammo for hunting or target shooting and I can't find any because someone decided to hoard it up to sell to some sucker later.... well it pisses me off just a little bit.

It's going to be pretty sad in a few months when the market is back down and stores are flooded with product.... all those that bought expensive stuff with their bill/rent money now have all those guns/ammo but no money to pay their bills and they can't sell their overpriced guns......

Carry on brother....

What some are missing and here's an example: I just got mine a few days ago from a private party.... I didn't have the luxury of paying base price. My price is in line on what I have in the rifle. I don't really need to sell it and don't care if anybody wants to buy it.

If something is hard to come by than the prices will always be high. No different than buying gold or diamonds. For the guys that have stuff on back order that are getting great deals... It's not a deal if you never get it.

My 2 cents.

Gas used to be $.20, then $1, then $1.50, then $3.25, then...

Prices change. Demand changes. What someone paid for something is IRRELEVANT to what it is wort to the next guy who WANTS that something.

Ahhhh.... so what this really comes down to is *your* lack of preparedness?

I have a buddy that started hitting Wal*Mart's looking for TulAmmo .223 back in November. By the time of the shooting, he'd already picked up about 5000rds. Some of our mutual friends laughed at him at the time... asked why he was buying so much ammo.

Am I supposed to be mad at him for planning ahead? Should I also be mad at him if he chooses to sell some of that ammo if someone is willing to give him double what he paid? I guess I just don't see how I am supposed to blame him because he planned ahead and someone is willing to pay top dollar for something he has.

Carry on brother....


But when the market is flooded and there is no new legislation yet, these people will still need to pay their bills. Will they pay there mortgage and feed there kids or hold out for what they have in their overpaid items. I bet alot will pay their bills and take care of their families and may have to take less to get the money in a timely matter.

I'm saying their will be deals to be had and these prices will drop, they always do, jmo....
