I hope this is in the correct forum, I apologize if it isn't. I keep reading in the papers, on the news, etc., that gun prices (those affected by the ban) should be dropping. I've noticed on most websites and in a few gun shops that they aren't. I'm getting ready to purchase my first AR-15, but I want to get the best deal I can...any suggestions where I can find an AR with ML handguard, 16" barrel, basic standard gun for a reduced price? I haven't noticed any on any of the auction sites either...

Depending upon price, I'm leaning towards either a Bushy or RRA.

Thanks in advance.

What do you have in your budget?

Prices for "pre-bans" should go down, since for most of us they are just used rifles (unless you live in a bad place). But a new "AR-15" you could've bought a month ago (before the ban went away) shouldn't have been any more expensive than the equivalent new "AR-15" today. The only difference is a new one can come with a flash supressor and bayonet lug, and if you want to pay a little more you can legally get a collpsable stock on it now..

I guess about $750 for a bare gun. I found a RRA with a 16" barrel on Adcofirearms.com for about $732.

I guess that's about a good a deal as any, right?

Thanks for the responses, that makes sense.

coltshort14,

I post ban is fine by me as long as it is new. Where can I get one for the price you mentioned, or can I get a new pre-ban for about $750?

Thanks.
