You hear that? It’s the sound of the black rifle bubble bursting…
Over the past eight years, there has been a mad rush for gun makers to crank out ARs and AK variants as well as import exotic counterparts in from overseas (Tavor, anyone?).

This means it is defiantly a bargain shopper’s dream these days when it comes to black rifles.
Take this recent screengrab from my email box yesterday. Now Ruger AR-556s generally MSRP for $799~ meaning you can expect the price at your local FFL to be about 10-15 percent less, or roughly $675-$700.
How about this:
Give it six months and see where the prices are then…and who is still in business or not.
