BudsGunShop.com has AR-15's in stock
3/20/2013

Posted on 03/20/2013 6:43:53 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

I just visited BudsGunShop.com to see if they had any new AR-15's in and was shocked by the supply. I guess the market for such weapons is finally opening up.

They had Windhams, Stags, Daniel Defense, Colt, and Bushies...and they prices weren't too bad either.

I have bought several weapons from Buds and have always been pleased with their quick service and decent prices.

I've already seen guys trying to sell their ARs on the secondary market. One guy on our local gun forum was trying to sell two he had recently bought, and said he needed the cash worse than the guns.

I expect to see a lot of that.

My neighborhood gunshop said two weeks ago that they can’t sell AR-15s now after not being able to keep up with demand in December and January! Now they say they are having problems keeping up with demand for pistols.

Once people got their AR-15s, buyers started to snap up on pistols.

i’d consider a bushmaster if the price was right.

Without ammo, they make scary-looking clubs.

A brick & mortar LGS also had a variety of ARs when I stopped by this weekend, and while people were looking at them while I was there, I saw no frenzy to purchase. They also had ammunition, but have had quantity limits on it for a while.

You may know this, but Windham Weaponry is the same group who used to make the Bushmaster (before it was sold to Freedom Group and moved to Ilion, NY).

Check them out and read their story before buying a Bushy (some folks say the Bushmaster quality has gone downhill a wee bit).

There’s plenty of 5.56 ammo at CheaperThanDirt.com (but it’s not cheap).

I saw a used Bushmaster at a pawn shop for $1700 last weekend. Its normally a $850-$1000 firearm.

I agree with you...but don't know how to get rid of it.

Someone should tell Buds to kill that thing.

Just as an aside, you guys probably know that a rifle marked 5.56 will also shoot a .223, but the reverse isn't true. In case you don't know the details, read the story at link.

Supply is catching back up with demand (or demand is dropping off), so if I wait a few months and the price will probably return to normal.

Still won’t be able to find ammo, but I can at least get the weapon.

Son just got an S&W M&P AR-15 from a major area dealer and he said AR-15 prices are back to what they were before Newtown......

As everyone now knows, problem now is ammo.....

Just picked up a hundred rounds of 7.62x39 at a buck a round.

I check CTD daily for 5.7 ammo.

Someday official NATO ammo, like 5.56, will be as common as .22s.

Wait, what? They’re out of .22 ammo too? This country is out of control...thanks 0bama.

Lucky Gunner sometimes has it, too, but I can't get the site to load right now. Lucky Gunner

All of these have it for under 50 cents/round in bulk.

Just 2-1/2 years ago, I bought this same stuff at cheaper than dirt for $110 for 500 rounds ($0.22/round).

“i’d consider a bushmaster if the price was right”

We sold our Bushmaster and bought a Wyndham about 6 mos ago. Its a better rifle. Check it out before you buy.

I bought IMI 1200 round cases just over a year ago at $135 from Widener’s. They can’t get resupply presently. And they haven’t had any 9mm for months now.

“I’ve already seen guys trying to sell their ARs on the secondary market. One guy on our local gun forum was trying to sell two he had recently bought, and said he needed the cash worse than the guns.”

I did that at the height of the assault weapons ban scare back in January with some AK’s and a lot of mags/ammo. Made a good chunk of cash to pad my savings, then recently used some of that money to buy a quality PTR-91. So in actuality, Feinstein and Obama actually helped me become better equipped than before.

This isn't advertising but simply letting my FRiends know when AR-15's become available.

If you have a story about Buds, perhaps you should tell us.

And we do appreciate the info. Bud's isn't perfect, but they're definitely a leader in the retail firearms market. Their pricing restraint is a big indicator, assuming that Congress doesn't do something even more foolish than usual.

Try Gunbot. It’s a website that lets you know when other sites gets stuff in stock. Good stuff shows up on there sometimes. You have to buy in bulk at most places to overcome paying too much shipping. If you buy a 15.00 box of 9mm, you’ll pay about 15 for shipping. I you buy 10 boxes, you still only pay 15.

Check this out for M855 Lake City 5.56.

I have never bought from this vendor, but I do like LC M855 green tip ammo.
