I have 20 USGI 30rnd mags.

I have no problem with them at half price now.

I'm sure I'll be out more with telestocks. I couldn't care less about the bayo lug.

Colt blue label Match HBAR paid $1200 = $400 / $500 ? loss

Two Glock 20 hicaps, paid $50 each, about an $80 loss

Installing folding stocks and flash hiders on my post ban FALs HK's ARs and M1A's? PRICELESS !

A decent amount, but it was worth it.

For weopons that can be produced again, the loss will be quite a bit for some. But for guns that are no longer made (due to the company being gone, ie Intratec), who knows. Value is based on how much someone is willing to pay....

I had 3 pre-bans,
an Oly, and 2 Colts. Probably lost $1500 in value on the three guns.

And then I bought 3 lowers stripped lowers, 3 stocks, 3 uppers. 3 two-stage triggers, and the rest of the deal. You know, stuff I wouldn't have bought if the ban hadn't been expiring.

So, all said in done, the expiration cost me $3,000.

around $50 depending on the price of mags in the coming weeks
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 10:20:05 PM EDT
Nothing. I sold the only pre-ban I had in 1998 to finance a purchase of an HK Mk23 and a post-ban Armalite. Now its a no-ban rifle!

I live in NY so I don't know and I don't care.
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 10:24:46 PM EDT
A little, but it's worth it. I'd loose all value in my NFA guns if I could make more tomorrow
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 10:24:59 PM EDT
My only 'pre ban' items were Orlite AR mags, $9 Beretta 92 range mags, and $5-7 AK mags...

So I don't think I lost a thing...
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 10:25:59 PM EDT
nothing I dont buy guns to sell.

You only lose money if you bought them with the intent to resale.
Link Posted: 9/12/2004 10:29:30 PM EDT
Over $1,000.00

I was Told This Ban Will Never End so I stocked Up on a Shit Load of Preban Magazines.

Hmmm $90 on a fixed telestock (yeah I got ripped years ago when I didn't know any better) and it cost me $309 for a new barrel that I wish had came with the rifle. Tack on however much it cost to have my original HBAR turned down to an M4 profile barrel along with a KKF look alike brake ($150-$175ish?). Another $70 each for Walther P99 9mm magazines. I think they go for $30 or so normally.

All told, about $620.

upwards of $1600. but well worth it.

Does'nt matter. It was all worth it.

3 Beta C mags worth of $$$ but I don't care. As long as the ban is gone it was money well spent.
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 12:28:35 AM EDT
Nothing, the way I look at it. All of my pre-bans were bought before the ban & are still worth at least what I paid for them.

One could argue that my "collection" lost value but I didn't buy them as investments and don't plan to sell any of them, so that doesn't really fly either.


I'm just happy to see it go.

Me too. But yes, it was well worth it. It was a calculated risk. I was not prepared to gamble on whether the AWB would sunset.

None of us lost a damn red cent.

You cannot put a price on freedom.
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 4:39:09 AM EDT
I agree !!! I could care less the amount that I lost..... we WON !
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 4:41:02 AM EDT
Although I would not have cared...it would be worth it to rid us of the AWB...

I did not lose any $$$...in fact a few years ago...I made some money...
