Saw it at a local dealer. Already have 3 AR's,so would only pick this up if it was a killer deal. Any opinions?
Well, NIB Olys go for $1000 plus at the local store. I would say that is not bad.
Look at it this way...the new M4 upper from Bushy sells for right at $500 and that is just a freakin' upper. Jump on it...sell it locally. Make some dough.
The Plinker is a basic, budget model with cast upper and lower. Nothing wrong with it. Price is about right. Has A1 sights instead of A2.
