What happens to all the post bans that are already stocked and on shelves in the dealers and store shops?

Would you buy one knowing that you could have the same thing but with evil features for the same price?

Just wondering,

Someone will buy em.

gun dealers will kick up the price and say "theres never going to be anymore of these postban rifles again, so the value has increased."

I asked a similar question the other day when speaking with a local dealer.

"So, what are you gonna do with all the 10 round pistol mags after Monday?"

"Eh... someone will buy them. Mags are mags."

Someone WILL buy them... as long as he sells them cheap as hell.

There are states where they are the only game in town.
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 6:30:03 PM EDT
They'll probably call them Post Pre-bans

All to be sold in NJ where the AWB really won't ever go away.
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 6:33:15 PM EDT
You obviously haven't been paying attention.

The guns in question will escape to the streets en masse, where they will be scooped up by school children, drug cartels, terrorists, and guys with hairnets and big car trunks.

they'll be sold to dealers in NY and other states with non-expiring awbs
or people that don't care about bayo lugs and flash supporessors will buy them
to be honest I don't care all that much about those features other than the principle of it being unConstitutional to ban them

... FIRE SALE !

Some will make it to my house, I am always up for a good deal, telestocks are easy to put on later. $200 does buy a lot of ammo

My ArmaLite post-ban upper would be just great IF THE BRAKE WAS REMOVABLE.

I'll buy one of those post bans. A barrel swap is no problem at all.

You mean "barrel assembly swap" or "upper receiver assembly swap".

As car salesmen say, "there's an asshole for every seat".

Someone will buy them.

The cheap ten round pistol mags will be snapped up by savy gun owners that will take the obstruction out and have full cap mags for less than half the price of the new full cap mags. There wont be any law stopping them.

That's what'll happen.

They will sit on the dealer shelves collecting dust and in 10 years people will be asking how come a $500 AR15 without a flash hider and bayonet lug is going for $800.....

Sale 'em to unlucky states.

Rapid depreciation. Current new, never shot prebans will be valued a bit under new production rifles simply because they are older.

That's how I see it.
Link Posted: 9/8/2004 7:38:17 PM EDT
The postbans are still excellent rifles are they not?

Most if not all of the mags were made to be "tamper proof" so you can't switch em' back to full cap. They either have cuts in them or an over size floor plate and a short mag body. Still, if they're cheap enough someone will buy them. Doesn't effect me, my 1911a1 normally only takes an 8 round mag anyway.

Rifle sales will be a little slow - I still say that it's those full-size pistols with neutered 10-round mags that will be hard to sell.

Glocktalk guy has a price of $22 or 10 for $200 for full capacity magazines. Also has 33 rd. 9mm for $40.

How much for an evil barrel?

Send them to me in CT.

AZSherman1 will sell them in the EE at twice the price.

Link Posted: 9/8/2004 8:14:42 PM EDT
I'll go ahead and say it, everybody likes their gun set up their way but FH and BL mean absolutely nothing to me. Being able to put a true M4 stock on my postban is going to be great however. Someone will buy them (postban's) even if they are just $25 cheaper.



Link Posted: 9/8/2004 8:26:52 PM EDT
Certain folks will want 'em-- a crowned barrel is damn accurate for varmint hunting and the bench resters.

The rest of us... Well, I'd buy one and would add my own telestock and thread the barrel.
