As someone once wrote, this is both the best of times and the worst of times in the firearms industry. If you’re in the business of making guns, the election of a pro-gun (or, at least, not anti-gun) CINC meant that the pre-election push to head off any Hillary-approved restrictions of the number or kind of firearms Americans can buy and own came to a crashing halt last November. Increased production capacity and stuffed distribution channels meant that inventories have skyrocketed.
And since no one’s been able to repeal the laws of economics yet — try as they might — all of that supply coupled with reduced demand has meant one thing: falling prices.
Which brings us to the best of times…for gun buyers. If you’ve got the cash and are looking to buy, you haven’t seen prices this low since at least before Sandy Hook. And probably long before that. Especially for “commodity” items like, say, AR-pattern rifles. If you’re looking for a scary black gun, there’s an embarrassment of riches out there now at extremely affordable prices.
All of which means that sifting through the plethora of low-cost AR-15 options can be daunting. Well, we have you covered. Here’s our list of the five best AR-15 rifles out there for less than $500.
