Seems like overnight, The Bushmaster ACR is now available to the public.
A search of gunbroker results in 3 auctions where. All of which are currently under $3000.
I even watched one end earlier today for $2800 (HERE)
The big question on my mind is, now that the Bushmaster ACR seems to be readily available… what is going to happen with Jesse James’ rifle?
He is the guy that won the first ACR in a silent auction (Details Here) then proceeded to put it up on gunbroker with a starting bid of $8500… only to have it bid up to its current price of $16000. There are 2 days and 21 hours left in his 14 day auction, and the reserve still isn’t met.
Oh what a difference 2 weeks can make. All I can say is that I hope he had some sort contract with that wealthy private collector, because otherwise he really shit the bed on this one. I guess if worse comes to worse he can always just keep the rifle and his unfortunate lesson in economics.
I think Jesse follows the blog, because he commented on the last post. Hopefully he can chime in and let us know what the deal is.
