Colt LE6920...wholesaler dealer cost

I am wondering if anyone has the dealer cost of a Colt LE6920 at one of the current firearm wholesalers. The reason I ask before anyone gets offended is that I am looking to purchase one and the first local dealer that I checked with gave me a price of $1,029 plus tax. I am just seeing if I need to check around with other dealers for a better price or to just go ahead and let him order it for me. In other words, if the wholesale cost is $1,000, I would have no chance for a better price, but if the wholesale cost is $850, I might need to check around. Thanks for any help in this matter.

Bud's guns is selling them for $1020. You would have to add in tax and shipping and the transfer fee at your LGS. If my LGS had one for $1029 and I was sure that is what I wanted, I would buy it.

Remember the dealer would like to stay in business long enough to deliver the rifle, and beyond. The price quoted is about a hundred bucks under what most shops will ask, open that wallet and let the $100 bills do what they are supposed to do. :-)

by the way even if the rifle was slightly more expensive i find it has always benefitted me more in the long run to keep my business local.

the service is almost always better and much more personal. build a good rep-or with said dealer and keep bringing him business and he will treat you well.

that is of course unless he is a D&%^.

I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I paid $1240 or so for my 6721 the year the AWB went away.

That price seems reasonable and in the correct price range. You might save a few pennies shopping around but I'd be okay buying it at that price. I was just at a gun show last weekend and wow did the prices vary table to table. Saw several of theses rifles at the $1000-1200 mark. However, saw several tables wanting $1700.

That’s about what I paid a few years ago before all the craziness started. As others have said if that’s what you want go get it.

The market seems to be saturated with assault rifles (), you can get them here for about $490 (S&W M&P-15) at Wal-Mart and they even sell the green-tipped heat seeking cop killer military army scary bullets too!!!! OH NO!

Yes local business is great for building a good rep with your lgs once they learn you are a good customer they will be more willing to work with you on prices knowing they want to keep you there spending your money..I just traded a sks with aftermarket stuff to my legs he gave me exactly the amount in trade I asked for it and a far better deal than I found anywhere privately looking all because I have bought several guns from him and use him for all my transfers he knows I spend a good deal with him and works with me because of it
