Default A LGS has a MP15 used for $1099.

The reason Iím curious is I also have a rifle with the same SKU sticker. I inquired one of the sells guys about it and was told, SW donít make them like this any more. I donít think people are seeking the older semi-mil spec M&P15s. This is the archived listing I found to reference the exact rifle. I hate when people try to advantage of the misinformed. Which Iím suspecting is going on here.

The AR-15 market at the moment would laugh hysterically at that price.

Unless some fool who doesn't own firearms and has never put any effort to buy or search prices strolls in to that shop, there's almost zero chance that sells at $1099.

I wouldn't give the shop much grief over it however... it's business as usual. They realize it's a tough sell and low profit anyway, and at that price it doesn't seem as if they are motivated to sell it. I can't agree that anyone would be getting "taken of advantage of", if a buyer walks in and pays that, it's surely not the fault of the gun store.

Just looking at the picture w/o checking the SKU.... IIRC that was about full retail in "this market" for that model (which with all the FDE Magpul MOE stuff was sold/considered an upgrade at the time) in late 2012... just before Sandyhook.

A week later they were about $200 more....... ...... two weeks later everything on the shelves was long gone..... back orders on ARs for the next year.......or more and high $$$$$s.

flash forward to 2016 Election ..... bottom drops out of AR market.

"Used" that's maybe a $700 + gun (with about $180-200 of Magpul parts.)

Here's how it would go..

Walk in store, notice gun. Look at price, chuckle to self and walk out of store.

Very good, I bought about a year before sandy hook. Then SW came out with middy and sport models about the same time mine was discontinued.

I still have a few AR-15s, I did manage to sell a few before the 2016 election when the prices were still favorable for the seller, but yes the bottom did drop out, and unless it's an SP-1 or a high end custom, that $1099 price seems high. I was at a gun show this weekend, and the AR prices did seem to be creeping up again. I think the recent leftist anti-gun push and the midterm elections may have a little to do with it. I'm not a really big AR guy but if I do buy them, usually I stick with Colt. That brand always seems to resale high on the secondary market.

I like builds, which pretty much means I'm never selling them since I'd take a huge haircut.
