How much does it cost BM, Colt, Armalite, RR, etc... to manufacture parts and assemble a typical A2 20" AR15? What is the markup for these rifles once they leave the factory and become available to the serfs? How much is a the firearms tax (those who build their own rifles might know this answer!)

I dont know about full size rifles because FN builds them for the military but $1500 per unit for the M4 and thats complete with ras,foregrip,laser device I think its a rangefinder and a few sets of optics.Thats less than what my preban is worth and $450 more than what I originally paid for it 11 years ago,and its a bushmaster.

I understand that the factories that provide weapons for military use fall under a contract agreement. I do find this interesting, but I was more concerned what the civilian producers are doing. Karl
