    I am debating a Del-Ton upper and lower kit for $850ish all said and done, but would prefer a Bushmaster or RRA should pricing be coming back down.

    I've already got a hefty order of PMAGs pending (as that was easier to spend the $150 on) but was going to wait just a bit longer on the actual rifle.

    Your thoughts?
    My thoughts? Too many variables, what if's, etc.

    HR1022 essentially bans parts as well. So the longer the ban has been passed the more guns break and the more scarce working guns will be. Therefore the prices would continue to go up.

    But the first AWB didn't pass in its original form, so I'm not so worried about this one passing as is either. I do firmly believe an AWB will be passed though, the President Elect has never backed off that position.

    True. Im just worried about the supermajority present in the house and executive branch.

    I will no doubt be buying one just in case, just as you said, its hard to determine when/where the best pricing will hit.

    One thing we do know is that the price of metal has dropped significantly in the last month or two. However that doesn't seem to be translating into drops in Ammo or Guns with everything else going on.

    I bought a GSG-5 about 6 months ago for 465.00,I saw one in a new gun store today and my buddy asked how much,the guy said something like 750.00.I wish they would have shipped the other 2 I ordered before I could almost double my money
