With "Regime Change" I would hope to see more ammo at decent prices - even better would be to see an inflow of cases and crates of "cheap" milsurp ammo again - especially for 5.45, 7.62x39, 7.62x51 and 54r ammo.
I do hope it comes back somewhat to where it was with ammo and kits. I helped a bud put together his $350 PSA kit last week with a pre-assembled upper. Total was $425 including $75 for lower and transfer. Kit and lower were free shipping. That's a great price for an AR. Like Rails said, I miss the $20 500 rnd 22lr bricks at wally world.
The PSA ad my kid found was 339 complete upper shipped. And complete lower 149 plus 17 shipping. Basically just buy the two and slap em together.
Meh? I'm good with that. The kid gets an AR,no worries here.
