This is the final post in a two-part review of the Market Hall Gun Show sponsored by Dallas Arms Collectors Association on September 21, 2013. In part I of the review, I covered the show opening and vendor list. My intent for firearm pricing updates was to concentrate exclusively on black rifles. Since I donated blood that morning, it became evident after finishing the vendor sweep that not enough time remained to do a full update of AR prices. I spent just over seven hours on the floor by end of day and barely made it through one final sweep of both halls.  I went by each table quickly and just noted anything that caught my eye.  So, I apologize for the less than complete list and I hope what captured my interest at the time is of use to you in making purchase decisions.

As always, prices are considered show-only by the dealer and reflect a discount for cash transactions.  Some vendors offer incentives for purchase and are so noted in the price.  Prices are aggregated by model, not by vendor name.  If you see a number in parentheses after a price, i.e. $1800 (3), that means I found three models of the listed firearm for that price.

Overall, I found the show a bit underwhelming, relative to what it’s been in past years.  With the way it is trending, I can only justify covering Market Hall once or twice a year and I’ll probably donate blood to get in free.  Unless I’m absolutely in the market for something specific, I can’t justify $10 otherwise.
