What's new at Precise Shooter - 2016-08-31
Happy last day of summer!
The election season seems to be heating up, as ammunition and AR-related prices are inching up at the distributors.
Receivers are the hardest hit: we can still source Anderson receivers occasionally, but we're buying them at retail prices now. We didn't
change our price, and we can still sell it at cheaper than you would pay with shipping and transfer costs, because we're buying them in
bulk. But the fact remains - the last time I've seen them at Anderson in quantity more than 5 was more than 6 months ago.
There's still a killer deal we have on Alexandria Pro-FAB 308 lower receivers - only $144.95. These are DPMS comparible receivers and
work great with DPMS ($69.95) and CMMG ($81.99) LPKs. Please keep in mind that 308 receivers require a special buffer - we usually stock
Anderson 308 kits for $65.95. All this, when coupled with the Alexandria ProFAB upper (we just ran out, but more are coming next week) yields
the cheapest AR-10 that I could find. I built 2 of these for myself.
(The target is 20 rounds of the cheapest brass cased ammunition at 100 yards)
Wholesale ammunition in popular calibers inched up approximately $0.50 - this is true for both 9mm amd 223. We did not raise our prices,
and we still have some orders in fulfillment at the mid-summer price levels, but our margins are down somewhat, and the very cheapest
ammunition is almost entirely gone.
We still sell Great Lakes reloads at $9.95, but bulk of our target 9mm ammunition is now $11.99. I expect to be able to maintain
this price point going into the holiday season.
That said, deals still can be had outside the 223-9mm Axis. We have an absolutely killer deals on Eley EPS Match 22 - a distributor
have been closing out the line, and I bought all of their stock, so I got a fantastic deal. This is possibly world's most accurate
22, and it is normally exorbitantly expensive.
The cheapest I have seen this ammunition wholesale is $15 a box, its usual wholesale price is around $17, and it is typically sold on the Internet for
Our single box price for it is $14.99, and we still have a very special case price of $1200, which works out to $12 per box - 40% cheaper than
on the Internet.
Also, if you have a 32ACP pistol, I have just found a super cheap source for Armscor 71gr loads - only $300 per case. This is cheaper than
our normal wholesale price, and for the most part the price of 32ACP is around $20/box. We are taking special orders on case quantities,
which must be prepaid. Call us!
A great deal is available for case quanitites of Armscor 10mm 180gr loads (FMJ 50rd) - $400/case. Same process as with 32ACP - call us,
pre-pay, and we will order it for you at this price. As is the case with the 32ACP, this is cheaper than our regular wholesale.
(The target is 5 rounds from 25 yards)
We have greatly expanded our collection of guns from Freedom Arms. These guns are world's finest - and by far the most accurate - revolvers.
Pictures and factory targets are here.
Speaking of fine, fine handguns, our collection of Les Baers is the biggest in Seattle Metro area. Many of our guns have a 1.5" guarantee - which
means that Les Baer guarantees that the pistols will shoot 1.5" groups at 50 yards. And all of them will shoot 3" groups at 50 yards. Yes, yards.
These guns are more accurate than most AK-47s.
As a reminder, the stock of CZ 452 in the country is coming to an end. If you don't buy it now, you may never be able to get "Czech Anschutzes"
as they are frequently called because of their accuracy.
Here are a few reviews:
Aside from the 452s, we have the state's (and possibly, the coast's) biggest collection of CA firearms,
including this rare, rare thing:
Rock Island 1911s
Absolutely unquestionably Armscor makes the best inexpensive 1911s, bar none. Our collection of them is growing, and recently we were
able to grab a large quantity of GI pistols, which we are making available for only $399.95:
Since Ruger has slashed the prices on their LCP pistols my more that 30%, they have instantly become the best deal in sub-subcompact
category. To wit: a brand does not get more brandy than Ruger, and you get to own a Ruger pistol for, what, just over $200?
This never have happened in the past, and so when it finally did, these pistols flew off the shelves.
Well, after not seeing them for a half a year, we were able to restock!
Smith & Wesson
We have received a very large shipment of Smith & Wesson guns - revolvers, pistols, and AR-15s. Even 45APC Shields! Take a look:
Surplus super deal!
Price: $229.95 (in stock)
We have received a very large quantity of Taurus Model 82 revolvers. These are clones of the legendary Smith & Wesson Model 10, and they
feature triggers that are every bit as nice as the famed original. And if you have never tried a Smith & Wesson revolver trigger, you
really owe it to yourself - and you WILL be amazed.
This bunch is super nice - my cell phone picture does not do them justice. The finish is royal blue, and mostly intact. The barrels
look new, the lockup is tight. My lawyers do want me to say that - as with any used guns, you should have it expected by a qualified
gunsmith before shooting.
See the range report here.
Savage rifles provide the best accuracy per dollar spent, bar none, and we always try to keep the newest as well as the most successful
models in stock.
The newest model is 10BA Stealth in 308 Winchester. This is Savage's answer to Ruger Precision Rifle. It has an aluminum chassis,
threaded, fluted barrel, an adjustable stock, and comes equipped with the scope rail.
Price: $969.95 (special order)
The other two models to pay special attention to are 10P-SR and 10FCP-SR (the latter we have in 308 and 6.5Creedmoor)
Both of these rifles are part of the Savage's Law Enforcement series, both are very similar to 10TR
(which I reviewed here), and the main difference between the two is that
10p does not have an accustock and does not come with the scope rail.
Price (P-SR): $969.95 (special order)
Price (FCP-SR 308): $669.95 (in stock)
Price (FCP-SR 6.5): (currently unavailable)
With a hunting season approaching, many people are looking for something they can use for a hunt
as well as the shooting range. For the most part these two applications call for different rifles,
but you should take a look at Savage AXIS HB which combines
extremely low cost with out of the world accuracy and spans the worlds of hunting and target shooting.
Price: $334.95 (in stock)
