Just get one when you can, for what looks to be a fair price in this day and time. When it comes down to it, would you rather have one now for ~$600 or would you rather not have one? I paid $649 each shipped for two that I purchased at the same time. At that particular time, it was a good deal for a 107. $100 is pretty easy to get over when it comes to weapons. I say get 'em while you can and enjoy it. Happy hunting and post pics when you get it
A couple of site vendors have been having some good sales. Keep your eyes open and take a peek in here now and again. Deals will happen.

1)the gun ban scare was addressed
2) Carolina shooter supply and tac47 have both had sales lately and if you are patient you may be able to get one from them in the low to mid $500 range.
3) I have bought things online and it is easy and painless. You pay for it and choose a FFL locally for you. Fax a copy of the FFL license to the person you buy from and they ship it to them all legal like and stuff. When delivered to your FFL you go there and do the paperwork and they transfer it to you. Slightly more hassle than a face to face but worth it for the right deal.
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war

In the short term, demand is up and the Red Jacket show is helping sustain it. Imports will dry up like they always do in a couple of months and prices will creep back up into the $700+ range.
The Russians know these are hot items and have raised their asking cost, plus the dollar continues to be devalued. Both of which mean a slow and steady increase in price over the long term. They will never be cheap like they used to be, but are still a good value for what you get.
I don't think the fallout from the study is over, it was simply the ATF's way of testing the waters. The ATF clearly doesn't like them and can ban them as "non-sporting" when they feel like it. Take that for what it is, just kitchen table speculation. But I would NOT trust what the local gunrunner tells me his dealer's inside man at the ATF told him. Gun shops know speculation drives up prices and chum the waters accordingly. Still, it wouldn't surprise me in the least. The ATF briefly ceased approving import paperwork once already before they gave it the green light again.
TL;DR the answer to your question is if you don't have one now, get one. If you have one, maybe wait and see what happens but S-12 number deux will likely never be purchased at much of a discount vs what you can get one for now.
