I just ordered a stag arms model 8 yesterday. I got it for about $1,200 which is just a really good price for a gas piston AR15. 6-8 weeks until delivery is what I was told. We’ll see what happens. The last time around, if you ordered a back ordered rifle, you could still pick it up despite the ban.
The day before the shooting, I had 2 Colt ARs in my hand at the local wallyworld. I don’t need one, let alone 2, but wanted a Colt lower. I left when the clerk couldn’t figure out where the boxes and stuff were for either gun.
Even today, not sure I would buy even at the “pre-panic” price.
