    Checking gunbroker it seems Colt 6920s have gone from $850 - $900 to around $1,200 to as high as $2,500. Not as bad as after sandy hook but the price gouging is underway. At the George R Brown Houston gun show January 2 I saw a truckload of Colt 6920s for less than $900. One guy had PSA D&H...

    Hello an Welcome. I would like opinions on value for this rifle. Interested in both cash and barter value. Built for me by Olympic Arms. Has had less than 100 rounds fired. Still requires "breaking-in" of the barrel. Match Grade 2 stage trigger Match Grade Tactical Bull Barrel 1-9" Gas Block...

    Hi all, I have been following prices some on gun broker etc... looking to buy a .308 semi of some sort, M1, FAL etc...and I recently had to go on a trip for a few weeks and just got back to my PC. Am I remembering wrong or did prices start to come back down to earth?!

    Hello everyone, I've been around the forum for a while now. Looking, reading, learning in all of the different subject areas. I come across a mutual acquaintance last evening who needs some money and would like to sell his AK. I know very little about an AK as I only own handguns and shotguns...

    So, I don't do Gunbroker but I keep pretty close tabs on Armslist. It's gotten ridiculous. $1000 for a Spikes Lower? Bushmasters for $3000? Glad I picked mine up for $500 last year. Are you kidding me? I had been sending some fairly snarky messages to some of the sellers containing words...

    Ok yesterday I went Christmas shopping at the big W..... I was surprised that they had firearms, lots of them actually. I had heard about retailers pulling weapons from shelves, W-mart running out of weapons, and numerous other stories. They have two glass cases and both were full of...

    There are so many posts going on in the various sections about the lack of availability on ammo and magazines. Why the surprise? :eek: Every time there is a mass shooting the commies come out of the woodwork wanting to ban guns. This time with much more vigor because of the innocent children...

    The biggest buying blindspot right now are FALs. Everyone is so worried about their AR's and M1A's that there has been no real crazy price rise in FAL's. Receivers are still the same price, but there are not many of them. Mosins have gone up more than FAL's. Craziness. Just a heads up.

    I expect the prices and availability to go crazy on these two platforms if a ban goes through. In my opinion, when magazine capacity is limited this we be the set-up of choice. I think Garands will become non-existent from the CMP, and 1911 makers will be the new overnight AR makers. BTW, Last...

    Hey folks, Getting into my first semi-auto rifle, and I find myself in need of advice. I have the opportunity to by a '93 milled Norinco MAK-90 which has been lauded as one of the best AKs made for a very nice price compared to the online deals I've found. However, the difference in weight and...

    I know many people build a whole AR-15, but would it be best to do the same for an AK-47? Should i but a pre-built AK like an Arsenal M-7 or should I just buy a receiver and start building from there. Also, what AK's are better pre-ban or post-ban? I don't care for resale value, it's just that i...

    Does anybody know if a like new MAK 90 with 700 rounds of ammo for 450$ is a good deal? The rifle alone is 350$. I'm guessing yes.

    Hello all, Newbie here. I own quite a few firearms but nothing that could be considered a serious combat long-arm except for a few shotguns. I'm in the market for a decent, well-priced AK-47. But since there are so many variants out there, I don't know where to start. Just looking for some...

    Given 2012 and the elections, do you think there will be another shortage? If you knew that there would be a rush on guns/ammo next month and there would be a shortage for over a year, what would you buy now? I bought a lot of reloading components and ammo. Enough for two years of target...

    I have a NIB 1986 Norinco Ak47. The left side of the reciever is stamped 3-1986 Norinco AKS 47. I am assuming the "S" is for semi auto only...which the weapon is. I hear people talk about the Norinco type 56 being a pre -ban. Talking with some gun show people this weapon is "pre-ban" as well...

    Anyone noticing any price increases in the new year? Not like $5 increases (unless it's a small item, not a gun). I've noticed it I'm ammo and guns and mags, at least the glock mags. I bought an 18" barreled, full length tube 6+1 round 870 couple months back for $317 plus tax and then got a $30...

    I got myself a MAK recently. I love AK's and i especially love well built AK's. What i love even more is that i only paid $125 for it!!! That is a steal. I felt bad taking it off the guys hands, okay not really. LOL. I really want to get rid of that "dragunov" style stock. It frickin sucks...

    I have a chance to pick up a like new Norinco Ak 47 for $450 bucks. Was just wanting to get your guys opinions on them, I have read good things on the web about them. I think its a pretty good price for one, I am going to get to shoot it before I buy it. I am going to change the stock and...
