I was just at my dealer's picking up a Colt 9MM carbine-he said Arsenal just increased prices on all of their guns due to the new import ban!!!! That didn't take long!!

Glad I got my Classic before now!!! If you guys have been waiting, you waited too long I am afraid!!!

My FFL also said Arsenal is shipping a batch of milled underfolders with the stamped stock struts and flash hiders.

Sounds like I need to get another Arsenal ! Templar what do you have in stock?? I feel bad for the guys who have been doing the home builds. The Antis are never satisfied!

Well, Arsenal, Inc. has not announced anything... you just heard from your dealer. This may or may not be true.

Anyway, I can never understand bellyaching about price increases - supply and demand WORKS. If they price their rifles too high we will stop buying them. I know when I have reached the limit of what I will pay and when I get there I simply wont pay it.

Now isn't that easy?

The bellyaching comes from the fact that the price increases are due to the artificial constraints put on the market by our dear old friends the atf.

Blame our congresscritters and Executive Orders, not the ATF. They are just the enforcement branch. We pay $12,000 for a $500 automatic rifle because of them.

In economics this is what they call "whatever the market will bear". So, as long as we are willing to pay what ever the suppliers demand, the prices will continue to go up until the market will no longer bear the increases. The AK market right now reminds me of the stock market in the 1990's when the law of the bigger fool reigned.

lets agree to blame everyone. the atf, the congress, the pres's.
they are all responsible now and have been repeatedly.
lets hope the price hike that occurs because of this isn't too big.

Price hikes at Arsenal (if true) do not trouble me, that is capitalism and I love it, I sure don't want to pay more but that is just the way it is with supply and demand. If people stop buying their rifles, they will either come down in price or perish unless of course there is a government bailout with our tax money of course. Arsenal is a business and they are there to make money. if their products are going to be limited they might as well make enough money before they are oput out of business. Would you not do the same if you were them? I would! Besides I already have three of their rifles and don't need any more...yeah right, who am I kidding...

I would like to have an AKS-74 anyone know if Arsenal plans on building these?
Link Posted: 8/2/2005 5:44:55 PM EDT
Arsenal price increases don't bother me too much.. I have allways found their products to be way over priced.. They are nice, but still way too high..
Link Posted: 8/2/2005 5:58:13 PM EDT
Glad I got mine hehe.

I got my SLR-101 for a really good price, can't complain.

There are fixes to the barrel situation being looked into, but they aren't going to be cheap ones.


I'd be willing to pay a little more if its goes towards US made steyr forged chrome lined barrels.

Too bad the price is going up. Not unexpected, they won't be able to get the less costly factory barrels. Makes sense to sell what you have for as mcuh as the market will bear.

Glad I got my milled rifles now...
