This is the final installment in a multi-part review of the Lewisville gun show on Jan. 26 and 27, 2013.  Links to the previous segments of the review are provided below.

Part I

Part II

This post completes the firearm pricing updates.

Blackland Outdoor Sports had a Colt M4 (LE 6920) on the table for $2499, a Mossberg 715-T for $309, and a Chainsaw for $469.  Once I saw one in Corsicana, it seems like Rossi Ranch Hands are cropping up at every show.  You could get one in .357 mag for $399.  They are manufactured and sold as handguns, not an SBR.  If you want a real handgun, then an M&P 40 was on sale for $549, an FNS-40 for $629, and XD 40 Compact for $529, and an XD 4″ in .357 Sig for $449.  A Ruger LCR in 38 sp with a laser sold for $549 and in Glock-land, you could buy a gen-4 G22 for $649, a G21SF for $649, a gen-3 G27 for $649, or a gen-3 G31 for $579.

S.A.W. displayed a Kimber Super Carry Pro for $1399 and an Ultra CDP for the same price.   A Tactical Pro II in 9mm was listed at $1199.  A Grand Raptor 2 in .45 was on display for $1398.  They still have the Sig P238 Zombie on the tables and the current price is $799.  A Beretta 92 FS was on sale for $749, a 92 A1 for $649, and an Alleycat for $398.  A Glock G17L was on the table for $899, a gen-4 G21 in FDE for $679, a gen-3 G22C for $589, a gen-3 G17C for $599, a gen-3 G22 in FDE for $529, a G30SF for $679, and a gen-4 G22 for $589.  An FS2000 was on sale for $3899, along with a Century PAP M92 for $899.  Prices are on the rise for the exotic shotguns.  The UTS-15 with sights and a muzzle break was on the table for $1899 and the Kel-Tec KSG was priced at $2399.  A Ruger SR-556E model 5912 was listed at $2299, a Sig RM 400 in FDE for $1999, and an FN Scar 17S for $5599.

Independence Firearms sold a LWRC M6 for $3499, a Daniel Defense M4 Carbine (16″ 5.56) for $2199, a Sig M400 for $1995, and a DPMS A-15 for $1599.  AK pistols were on sale for $799 and I saw an FS 2000 on the table for $2499.  In Glock-land, they had a gen-3 G32C on sale for $649, a gen-4 G31 for $589, a gen-4 G22 in FDE for $649, and a gen-4 G35 for $684.

Past And Blast had a gen-4 Glock 22 on the table for $649, a Citadel 1911 in .45 for $499, a Sig P229 for $889, a Sig P220 for $827, a Ruger LCR-22 for $369, and a Walther P99C for $589.  I saw a Taurus Judge (all black) for $439 and an H&K P30 w/2 mags for $795.  A Ruger M77 with bipod was on a table by itself for $859.

I missed a couple firearms from Republic Arsenal yesterday.  In addition to the XD-S I purchased, they had an XD-M in .40 4.5″ for $639, a Colt SP6920 Sporter for $2499, and a Bushmaster E2S for $1899.

Premiere Armory had the Sig .22LR conversion kits for various models on sale for $249.  I saw a 1911-22 for $559, but what really caught my eye was the STI Spartan 1911 with punisher grips for $699.

I mentioned S.W.A.T Firearms yesterday.  They had Stag Arms AR-15s on display in the $1495 to $1695 range.

Ridgeline sold a Ruger LCP with LaserMax for $509, a gen-3 G17 for $699, an FNS-40 w/3 mags for $599, a Khar CM-40 for $399, and a Sig P226 w/night sights for $899.

D’oh, I missed a few from CYA yesterday.  They had a Mossberg 715-T on sale for $329, AK pistols for $0199, a Mossberg 500 with pistol grip for $449, and a Bushmaster Carbon 15 listed for $1499.

I asked Crazy Gun Dealers about an XD Compact in .45 and they did not have any in stock.  They pointed out a Taurus model, but were very respectful of my decision to purchase either an XD compact or XD-S in .45.  I appreciate not being given a hard sell.  Speaking of selling, their layout was dramatically reduced from past shows.  I saw in ISSC MK-22 with varying furniture in the $599 to $699 range, a Mossberg 500 with adjustable stock and shell carrier for $499, and a 500 with pistol grip only for $399.  An FNX-45 sold for $799, a Browning 1911-22 for $599, a Remington 1911-R1 Centennial for $999, and a Glock 36 for $599.  All purchases still get you a free CHL course.

Bad Ass Shotguns was back with some bad-ass shotguns.  A Mossberg 500 with 18.5″ barrel, forend light, shell carrier, and folding stock was on the table for $649.  A 500 with 20″ barrel, adj. stock, and two shell carriers sold for $499.  A 500 Zombie model with a breacher and pistol grip was on sale for $499.  A cool-looking 500 with 18.5″ barrel, forend light, heat shield, adj. stock, and shell carrier was listed at $999.

Gun Toyz displayed the Sig AC conversion kit, Zombie Edition for $489.  A Roni SBR conversion kit sold for $359 (Glock lowers), and I saw a Sig Stoplight tactical light and light/laser combo, but they were unmarked.

Classic Colt sold an M&P 40 for $549, a gen-4 G22 for $629, a gen-3 G35 for $685, a G36 for $599, a gen-3 G30 for $659, a G34 for $799, a gen-3 G22 for $549, a gen-3 G31 for $632, and in Sig-land I saw a P220 Elite Scorpion for $959, a P226 w/night sights for $989, and a P238 Scorpion for $609.   A Colt AR 640 9mm carbine was on sale for $3000 and an M4 LE 11678 in FDE was listed for $3543.

C&S Firearms had a Mossberg 715T on sale for $425 and a Windham R-16A4 for $1595.

A2J2 Sales had an ATI M-1911 GI Model on the table for $459, along with an ML Model for $459.  A Beretta Nano sold for $429 w/2 mags.

Just for the time I was at the show (which was over seven hours across both days), private sales did not seem to go all that well.  I watched over a dozen people exit the show while i was in line on Sunday with their guns still in hand, and several of the signs indicated markdowns.

Well, that wraps it up for a packed Lewisville show, with massive (record) attendance on Saturday and lines/controlled entry throughout the day on Sunday.  Hope to see you at another show this coming weekend.

  1. Should be interesting to see what Kimber sales do. Kimber 1911 Pistols really are getting popular
