Do you remember that old fable about the grasshopper and the ant – where all summer the ant pushed himself to gather food while the grasshopper sat on his ass drinking vodka tonics and playing Xbox? Wait, I think that was me 20 summers ago. Anyway, we are physically and metaphorically in the golden weeks of summer, with a hint of cool breeze in the air signaling a coming change. Prices on magazines, ammunition, lowers and uppers for AR15 are historically as low as they have ever been. As such, it’s time to top off that summer stockpile of ammo, mags and AR15 parts so you can make it all the way to spring without having to sell a kidney on eBay for more range time.
Summer Stockpile Sales: Snap Up Mags, Ammo, AR15 Lowers
Sub $0.30/round 5.56mm ammo, $10 magazines, $50 AR15 lowers? Even rimfire ammo has returned to near Y2K levels (I think I’ll try and make next week’s deals all rimfire related). Someday we’ll all look back at these prices and wish we had made a bigger summer stockpile. Be the ant, not the grasshopper – it may save you some money down the road.
In case you missed our deals post last week, check out some of of our gun travel tips for summer vacations. Be safe, have fun and we’ll see you on the blog.
