One has to ask why. Is the economy getting ready to dump? Do they see something that we don't see yet? It's not like PSA to give up PROFITS.

That is possible, but I think there are a number of factors that are slowing down demand, for PSA products. The outrageous price, and limited availability of ammunition is impacting demand for AR15 rifles, and related products. ( A gun is of little value without ammunition.) Our national media has gone "MUM" about defund police, BLM, urban violence, crime, and shootings. Which has helped quail the desire of urban, and suburban residents to buy guns at highly inflated prices. You can also factor in, PSA's perceived greed has offended many of their core customers.

I can agree with this. I'm not an avid AR guy, I picked up a couple "cheap" ($500) Radical Firearms guns before the lid blew completely off this year. Probably still too much, but by maybe $75 or so, not by a couple hundred.

My understanding and impression of the PSA guns has been not that they are great, but that they were great VALUE guns. Meaning that when they were cheap, you got a good deal. They were the preferred brand as I understood, if you were looking at the $500 range or so.
When they jacked up over $700, it was no longer the case.

I guess it's like looking at 1911's, with the Armscor RIA guns. Excellent deal around $400 or under; but if you go up in price you can get something nicer.

If you want the "Best Deal" available today on a complete lower receiver go to: https://gun.deals/product/psa-ar-15-complete-lower-magpul-ctr-edition-bl.... For $10 less you get about $75 worth of good Magpul furniture.

I have everything I need, not everything I want.... so I'll wait , if things don't change oh well. the public is fully armed, over 8 million guns were sold during the pandemic. so at a point everyone is gonna stop buying. all the $2000 plus weapons are still available Im sure they will discounted big very soon.

For those of you complaining about "price gouging", have you ever thought that maybe with the increase in demand, that maybe they are having to pay overtime to their employees? And maybe the vendors that they buy from are also having to pay overtime to their employees to meet this demand? Their costs have probably gone up. But even if their cost have not gone up, "price gouging" serves a legitimate market purpose in that it helps to prevent hoarding. Think about the whole toilet paper situation a while back. If they would have "price gouged" the toilet paper, then people probably would not have bought all they could, and therefore there would have been some on the shelf for someone else to buy. I would rather have very expensive toilet paper than no toilet paper at all!

I agree in general about the price theory you discuss, but I think that in this particular case PSA has increased prices by a much higher percentage that Anderson, Brownell's, and other AR vendors on this site. Since they all source their components from the same vendors, I think PSA does fall squarely in the "Cheaper than Dirt" price gouging category. How you respond to this pricing behavior is a personal choice. Personally, I will remember it.

The cheapest ar nell's has in stock is $750 for a base Aero, so they gouging too now? Anderson ain't got shit, even lowers are gone. What PSA is doing is a standard financial tactic; if you have low stock, in high demand, with little positive projection of returning market stabilization, you charge as much as you can to maintain something close to a normal revenue. You call it gouging, while most economists would call it survival.

I don't see a base Aero complete lower for $750 (or any other price) at Brownell's, but here's a complete Anderson lower:
https://www.primaryarms.com/anderson-manufacturing-am15-complete-lower-r...
$165, and in stock right now, at PA.
Most economists would not call it survival. They might call it a market clearing price; one that equates supply with demand. In any case, if you laid all of the economists in the world end to end, they would not reach a conclusion, particularly on the strength of your argument.

Would you look at that, nell's sold out of overpriced rifles. Already?

Ahh yes, a singular company, letting you buy a singular lower, with a base lpk, and stock, for more than market value. But wait there's more. you get to buy an upper to complete it with for $750... LOOK AT THE SURPLUS! WOW, AMAZING! GREAT VALUE! DOGE FOR PRZ!

Dude, every day it's a story about market shortage. Mom and pops, big boi's, everything in between. Nobody's got ar's or ammo in plentiful stock, so I'm pretty sure every economist would say sell it for whatever you can get the highest profit margin. There is little indication of a market shift towards a balance anytime soon. If your financial advisor tells you to sell your ar for $500 right now, it might be time to put them out to pasture.

I've got a well stocked shop and I'm not selling anything, for any price. Doors are closed, ain't answering the phone.
I'm sitting on it.
How's that for my financial advice ?
Gunsmithing is in full swing, not taking anything in just getting out the things I have here now and then I'm shutting that down too.
Maybe in 6 months I'll open again, maybe.
It all depends on how shit goes.....and my crystal ball has dead batteries.
Maybe it's time to build myself a new rifle in a caliber that doesn't exist yet ? hmm...sounds like a plan.

That's good on you that you can afford a hiatus, but I'm pretty sure any sane person will tell you that not selling anything and ignoring the phone is a pretty terrible business model. Especially if there are employees depending on a paycheck from you. However, your R&D could prove to be profitable.

That's some fucked up shit right there, the only things you mention are monetary, are you that fixated on money ?
Afford, Selling, Business model, Paycheck, Profitable.....apparently you are. You'll never get happy in this world.
No employees since there isn't a willing worker with a 3 digit IQ to be had, they all cost me triple what they bring in...so f that.
Probably build a 30 cal with a 250-275'ish grain long bullet at about 2800-3000 fps'ish and won't release the data because where do you think the Valkyrie came from ? Yea, a custom barrel I ordered from Lilja and hornady got wind of it. It all started with someone betting me I couldn't accurately shoot a .223 to 1k.

This thread is mostly about economic strategies and peak demand pricing, so yes, we're talking about money. Money isn't the only thing I'm fixated on, but if you are trying to crate a sustainable business model, it should probably be a major priority. It also may not buy happiness, but it sure can grease the rails. And it buys guns, guns make me happy.

I'm well aware of the burden of finding and training quality employees, both in my day job and in self employment. Some sure enough aren't worth the hassle, but if your business volume is large enough, and people are willing to pay enough, they sure do come in handy. It also helps that I the only openings I ever have are for those that have some vocational training, I never start with a noob, that's not cost effective.

That's a hell of a load you're building yourself. I'm surprised you weren't able to wrestle control over your IP.

I live in SC and I really like PSA. They say money talks and bullshit walks. If PSA doesn’t lower the price back down after all the social bullshit is over, then i’m giving someone else my money. No pointo to pay MSRP on something that is just average quality at best

I agree, may as well buy a big name rifle then spend the same for PSA, going from a budget rifle to exceeding the big boys in price and with their reputation in customer service and months to get a reply I'll spend it elsewhere.

I like PSA, I have one of these lowers on 6.5 Grendel upper. Right now every firearm is overpriced. Once the fake social moment led by Marxist BLM white democrats is over and Coronavirus numbers are down I will try buying from PSA again. If they haven’t lowered their prices back down then I’m moving on to Aderson and Aeroprecision

Due to the huge price increase on this lower I sent the following message to PSA.
Subject: PSA engaging in price gouging.
I am sending this in protest to your recent unjustified exorbitant price increases on rifles, lower receivers, bolt carrier groups, and other high demand items. I think many of us long term customers find your actions greedy, and unacceptable.

psa has just about shut down customer service. no phones, no one replies to emails or the contact form. I know everyone is busy but they find time to sell you new stuff, just no time to support it. hope you don't need support or warranty

Always pay attention to who raises prices in times of panic and who doesn’t. When things get back to normal. “If they do”. We will know where we would rather spend our money.

I used to go on PSA’s website daily. I did that for a couple of years. I hardly bother anymore

A $129 lower less than 60 days ago. Thought PSA was going to be a common use company and make it practical for everyone to own an AR15? Now even PSA is in the gouging business...RIP PSA, not getting my business anymore.

at these prices maybe its time to sell my extra PSA Moe pistol lower with shockwave brace. I could probably get 190$?

EDIT; looks like we are up 10$ more today. i guess i can get more than 200$ now.

You would definitely get way more than half. It's a seller's market these days. Might not be a bad idea to sell it and buy something from a non-gouger when things normalize.

$50 more than they have been for years. Consistently $129 to $139 for about 5 years...

In March they were $139....

Plenty of places to buy other than PSA at this price.

You’re absolutely right about the price. I wouldn’t buy at this price range.

Would like to challenge on the point that you can find other places for same or lower pricing, though. Got some links for the community? Not trolling - serious question.

You will find far better deals when things normalize and panic buying subsists. Just save your money for now.
