I'm in more of a DPMS price range with my current salary

Maybe Costa will do some sort of Willy Wonka/Charlie Bucket give away for my sad, poor ass.

Nice rifle. Very nice rifle. No matter what, could never justify spending $2,895 just on a rifle without optics of any sort. Kinda of like spend $60,000 on a Lexus when I could by a Toyota for $25,000. Now if the Beard wanted to give me one, you would here no complaints from me.

But Chris Costa endorsed it!

It's a nice gun, but not $3,000 nice.

Don't care if Chuck Norris endorsed it, $3000 is to much. This comes from a guy who thinks paying $1000 for a user Colt is too much. I'll stick with Spikes and CMMG, I think they are great products especailly for the price. Now they don't look as cool as this rifle, but I like to shoot and abuse my guns. Maybe it's just the Marine in me.

You know what I'm impressed with? They've kept up on our country's gun laws (well, close enough) and will actually ship a CA-Legal version to your FFL, if you've got the cash. That's pretty awesome, in my book. Lesser dealers and/or manufacturers would just say "fuck it, I don't want to deal with this shit". Major Kudos to LaRue for making the effort.

Looks great, but not sure what real advantage it has to bring it near $3K. I wonder how much Costa is getting per rifle sale...I bet he gets 1/3 of every sale. Someone said it earlier, this is not an every day range rifle, this is one for the tacticool collection.

Well the standard PredatOBR is 2245.

Add on the extra work and cost associated with the finish, the pinned SF brake. The base rifle comes in at 2605 without sights.

I don't think it's overpriced.
Big thanks to FiftyCalAl for doing what he does!

I'm guessing that a stainless barrel is not chrome lined? Lots o' dough for a rifle with no sights or sling. And no chrome lining.

Cause if they included the light and laser, I'd have ordered my allotted two already. I am seriously considering one as is though. The problem is I don't "NEED" it... I just WANT it!!

Its a Special Edition, lets face it guys, when Magpul Rifles were coming out, most of you splooged all over the idea of picking one up.


I'd rock the shit out of a PredatOBR, I don't need the Costa Edition, but people will eat it up and good on Larue for seeing a market and acting on it.


So Mark, if you want to send me a PredatOBR, Ill happily call it the Byrd Edition

Is there a rail difference between the PredatOBR, and the C/L version? Length wise. (Obviously the 14.5 version)

You are doing it wrong. Other manuf like Barrett and KAC for ex do not sell to CA based on the political situation in that state and how they piss on the 2A. It has nothing to do the tech. loops they have to jump thru to modify their weapons to make them legal for the masses.

The laser is a AN/PEQ-15A and if you actually find one for sale it will cost way more than that rifle does. It is also an IR laser, which companies basically cannot sell to civilians.

There are some vendors that won't sell certain items here when it is perfectly legal to do so, M855 for example.

I won't go through companies like that for any purchases.

and if you had a business out of state you might decide its easier to not deal with CA sales - if you are so unhappy about the situation run for office and change the laws.
