Price reductions on "Black" rifles
I visited my local big box sporting goods store (Academy) after Christmas and noticed all the "black" rifles they had in stock - this included SIG's and all AR styled gun models - were reduced in price, most by several hundred dollars. Quite a change from this same time last year when an AR or AK was hard to find for almost ANY price! Guns like the SIG that sold for $1,700 in October were reduced to $1,200 and $1,200 S&W M&P 15's were going for about $900. I don't know if it's a local thing, overstocking or what, but it's nice to see prices returning to a pre-Obama level again. :hand10:
Has anyone else noticed the same thing in their neck of the woods lately?
Looks like the bubble has burst.
I've seen more "black rifles" in inventory at numerous gun shops than I have in over a year.
Prices look a bit more normal, too.
MSAR STG-556 now going for $1,000 used to be $1,700
Basic AR-15's were over $1,000 if you can find them, now in the $800 range and sitting on shelves.
I found a FN FS2000 for $1,600 plus a $250 rebate.
