I just bought a 16" Dissipator this past week, and was also anxious to get the best deal. It was $899 plus tax in a local gun shop. Yikes! I found a local dealer who was willing to do a transfer for 10%, which I know is high. I had them call Bushmaster, and they quoted my dealer $805 over the phone. I was shocked, because you see this gun for sale by auction every day for $739 on Gunbroker.com. I told them to forget getting it from Bushie, and had them call Young's Guns in Tennesse. They wanted $699 + $20 shipping. Add the $72 fee, and I had the gun in my hands for $791. So, don't feel bad, guys. I know that BM must give certain dealers volume discounts, but I don't understand the price they quoted.
