The one I have is the chainsaw but according to the seller, it's some of the best they have seen and they cannot personally find a flaw. A non chainsaw is about $600 right now and a gen2 is about $800. That's a lot of money for just a stripped lower.

I don't doubt that people in your position exist. I do, however, doubt they make up any significant portion of those driving current market prices.

My hunting rifles are much more deadlier than any "assault" rifle I've owned, and my shotgun is a more effective weapon in most situations than my "high capacity" handguns.

Those purchasing them now (for the most part) seem to be people with little or no knowledge of firearms and their uses, except for the paranoid "I want to be ready to be a part of the resistance" people. The prices are generally outlandish right now (lower receivers for 2-3x their normal price 3 months ago?). The people paying them are not firearms enthusiasts with a level head on their shoulders. They are profiteers hoping to have "grandfathered gun" they can sell later, right-win extremists who actually think civil war is weeks or months away, and new-comers who have no idea what they are doing with the guns. I would almost agree that anyone but the first category probably shouldn't be buying them (shouldn't be prevented from buying them, just shouldn't be buying them).
your whole statement seems rather elitist to me. i'll explain exactly why i want to purchase one.

i'm new to the sport of shooting. my knowledge is certainly limited, as it is when i've started any new hobby. when i started golfing i was terrible, and like any hobby, worked with it until i had some success.

my timing on getting into shooting is horrific. probably the worst timing i could have had in many many years, maybe a decade or more. but, why should i be limited in the pursuit of something i enjoy? what makes people with "superior knowledge" think they should have more of a reason to purchase than myself?

i'm not buying to defend myself against the government. but, if there is a chance i can acquire a gun i know i've wanted, and my time may be limited to buy one, why not? sure its more than i wanted to pay, and its def sooner than i would have, but if i've got the cash again...what makes someone with more knowledge a "better" buyer?
