I saw a used Smith and Wesson M&P AR-15 Sport 223 for sale in a local sporting goods store yesterday. Asking price $2,200. Before all the talk about gun bans, you could pick up a new one for $640.
“Fully-accessorized” 5.56/.223/ar57 rifles around here are going anywhere from $2,600-3,500. NUTZ.
My buddy had a Bushmaster he bought for $650 last summer. Sold it in the parking lot of a local gun show in MI for $2k last week.
I was going to make him an offer, but for that kind of money I’ll stick with my mini-14 until the prices drop for now.
