Default Lots of used AR15s for sale these days

I count 13 AR platform rifles or lowers for sale on the 1st page of the PAFOA classifieds.

Too bad I have to piece together a new one since I can't find one close to what I am looking for.

ETA doh, maybe thats because I was searching for "lower", oh well, still lots for sale but no lightweights!

I have an AR listed for sale. I see DI as obsolete, and while piston-ARs are a step forward, I have opted for other platforms that offer greater reliability and accuracy.

The Obama Effect. Lots of people - MANY first time buyers - bought a LOT of stuff, and not a lot of it was lower-tier stuff. Now it's really cheap, but if Der Kommissar gets re-elected, it will ALL disappear in short order, and at higher prices than in 2008-09!

Default Re: Lots of used AR15s for sale these days

im selling one but not for any of the above reasons.

i came across a deal on an additional ar that was to good to pass up that camr with a boatload of ammo, mags, case, and a nice sling. i dont need or want two of basically the same rifle.

i lso have other platforms and like the mix. im probs going to start looking at older rifles from 60's on back now. m1a1, garand,springfields from ww-1.

i tend to collect for shooting pleasure so im into a bit of variety.

are mini-14 pretty good? I have a chance to get one from $400-$500. Most ar15 on the classifieds are a bit too pricey for me as I am hoping to spend under $600 used.

"Good?" Meh...

BETTER than an AR? No.

Buy a good Colt or BCM (you can get both for just under a thousand new - maybe around $900 used - and you'll be GTG.

I had one for a while, and didn't like it at all. They're reliable, but just not fun shooters imo. There was just an AR on the classifieds for 500 I think, in fact I think the M&P sport model is 600 new.
You can also usually pick up an AK with some mags and ammo for $600, which I think you'll like more than a mini.
If not a used AK, look at the KelTec (sub2000?) in .223, that's supposed to be a fun one, though I've never shot one myself.

Quick correction:
The Kel-Tec SU-16 series is the folding .223/5.5645 mm NATO rifle. [A, B, C, CA, & D variants.] The Kel-Tec SUB-2000 is the folding pistol-caliber carbine that comes in 919 mm Parabellum and .40 S&W.

I have a Mini and two AR's. Different shooters but same caliber and the Mini will out shoot the AR's all day if you get the trigger time, IMO...

Default Re: Lots of used AR15s for sale these days

Not to get TOO side tracked:

I had a mini-14 tactical. It was great. Reliable, very accurate out to 100 (didn't shoot past that). I also had an AR-15 at the same time. It too was reliable and accurate. The short coming on the Mini IMO is the magazine situation. I'm not paying 30+ for a reliable magazine when the AR-15 has Magpuls for half that with a larger capacity.

Getting back on track:
I sold my AR to raise money for a Sig556 with full intent to build an AR down the road. Money is the only thing holding me back. There are a ton of ARs for sale not b/c people don't want them, but b/c they can't keep them or want to get a better AR style platform. Some folks may suffer from the Obama scare while I believe others have just hit a financial rough patch.

Some of us can't afford to keep them all. I wish we could.
