I really dont think its made that much of a difference. Sure preban prices have dropped some but most but thats about it. Sig, Glock factory mags are only slightly cheaper, the only difference being they can now hold more then 10 rounds. I bought preban mags for around the same price if you looked around during the ban. Not as plentiful but around. I dont see any $600 Colt AR15s or Bushmasters for that matter. Thats what I paid for mine in 1993.

So much hoopla for so little effect in any respect.

I've been watching the EE and seen some differences. A few websites too. I think SteyrAUG is coming through for us too. He is selling Colts I wouldn't mind owning.

This is just a guess, but there should be little change in the cost of manufacturing at level of new rifles, so there would proabably little change in the cost of the rifles. Remember these small appearance changes only.

I know that a bunch of folks on this board said that we would be able to buy new armalites, bushmasters and colts for $600...Hugh they must have been full of it.

If post-bans where $800-$900 why would new ARs with the extra features be even cheaper? That doesn't even pass the smell test. The only thing that will come down in price is the banned items that now can be manufactured again.

NIW USGI 30-round mags for $10? Yeah, I notice a difference.

The biggest place to see the diff. is in things like GLOCK mags, they are down to 20bux again, AR mags are around 10-15bux new/used. ARs really wont come down in price. The PREban/Postban terms still apply to the states that have their own set of AWB rules, that is why prices arent moving too much. my .02
