    Talking bushmaster 1998 catalog prices-

    seems years ago i was on bushmasters mailing list and they sent me a few catalogs after i bought that m17s or XM15 back in the 90s somewhere.

    the catalog i am looking at is from 1998.

    some interesting prices straight from bushmaster--

    bushmaster xm-15 lower stripped--$109.99

    bushmaster xm15 lower assembled with a2 stock set --- SALE $209.99

    lower parts kit $59.99

    m4 barrel assembly $214

    xm-15e2 kit $595 complete minus lower

    m4, a2,complete upper $485

    flat-top stripped upper rec $119

    m16/ar-15 blot carrier group BCG $109.99

    assembled ar-15/m16 bolt $44

    firing pin $5.95

    my favorite! hell why didn't i buy this??--LOL 37mm flare launcher kit $199!

    40rd mag $24.99
    30rd mag $29.99 civilian leo $9.99

    aside from the BCG prices of today and some of the other scarce parts--the prices ain't that much higher today.

    and you got to consider a 1998 dollar was worth quite a bit more than a deflated 2013 "obamma" dollar.

    The higher prices reflected the fact that there were not as many companies in the GAME back then... it was mostly Bushmaster, Colt ,Olympic arms ,Eagle arms/Armalite, Pack West Arms, maybe a few others.. now there are a lot more competition in the market.. B2B

    That's back when bushmaster was the shady "not sure if it's an ATF operation" table at the gun shows. All the LPK bits for a M16, and a template with the sear pin hole location to "make sure yours doesn't have the hole in this exact location in this exact size".

    He was probably still building FALs on good imbel receivers.

    EDIT: What's with all these companies being from minnesota?
