I have been looking at these online for a few weeks now and I decided to see what walmart sells them for in the .223 Cal. Seems like the Colt was only 1,100 dollars (NEW) . I thought I would post this because of the gouging that has been going on. I was in 2 different walmarts this weekend and talked to the salesman and he told me they received 3 Ar's friday morning but they didnt last long. The other store had recieved 3 last monday and they were bought up . They have more on order . Ammo was still skimpy with only 2 boxs of .223 . Hold off and you can get a new rife for a fair price. I am looking for the AR-10 .308..... I asked the sales attendent how many times has someone offered you 50 bucks to drop a call and he smilled and said several. But he would get into trouble. I bet its going on at other locations tho.
