Or you could assembly 4-5 kit AR15s.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:44:00 PM EDT
That has to be a joke. They might sell 1 or 2 at that price.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:44:12 PM EDT
Sounds like Spikes Tactical pricing.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:44:20 PM EDT
you can get a badass noveske for that , hel a LWRC and a CAN.

keep it FN


KEEP IT FN

Well i guess that settles that. I wont be getting a scar unless that price includes free hookers for a month or something. Jeez, you could almost get a transferable mac for that much.

That's 3-4 ARs.

I like my AR15. Screw them.

Yeah, let me get right on that one

Did we collectively wake up with a Dumbfuck tattoo on our foreheads?  Firearms companies in general must think we are some suckers of the highest degree.

Fuck.

I really wanted one, too.

I WAS interested till I saw that price. Screw them.

After the way they stood behind that OOB discharge FS2000 (Team thread), they can keep the SCAR.  Not that they care about civ sales anyway.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:53:27 PM EDT
Thanks for telling us, Dave.  I prolly won't be buying one.  Oh, well.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:53:49 PM EDT
That's roughly the cost of two Colt 6920s or LMTs.  3x the cost of your average stag.  4x the price of a Del-Ton build.

Good luck with that.  
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:54:27 PM EDT
Gosh damn...

I thought this was just a neener-neener thread. Then I saw who the op was.

Can't swing at that price.

800 too high, based on price of the FS2K, also a slow seller.
looks like my ACR money is safe

At that pice - not just no, but HELL NO!

And I was saving $$ to buy one.  Figured I could drop $1500 - $1800 for it.  Fuck it.

capitalism in the gun industry has gone beyond capitalism....fuck that noise.

Not to mention the guys saying...well ACR it is.....have fun getting one before 2010 b/c I bet Bushy doesn't even release it....
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:00:10 PM EDT
You guys just don't get it, this is their clever plan to keep them out of the hands of criminal lower class, so they won't get included on the new by-name AWB...tell me that doesn't make as much sense as selling for the cost of 3-4 ARs

ummmm... fuck that.

Someone tell me how it delivers 5.56mm projectiles down range 3.8 times better than an AR and I'll think about it.


For once I agree with you.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:04:41 PM EDT
Wow.  I buy a lot of stuff that is pretty expensive, but that's damn steep.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:05:05 PM EDT
I really think firearms and firearms accessories manufactures are trying to find the ceiling we will spend.  I remember when I first registered a Colt was expensive at $1200.  Now, that seems like a bargain compared to the prices being bantered about with these new rifle platform.  

The same goes with optics.  Swarovski, Leica, Zeiss used to cost a little more than a grand now goes for well over two thousand.  Leupolds, which was the working mans top of the line, now have models that costs over a thousand.  I understand inflation plays a part but not that much.

I've been wanting a bullpup 5.56 or another new platform to compliment my AR but at these prices of over $1500 dollars for a base model I'll just buy another AR.  I really wish manufactures would quit being so proud of their products.  

And yes I understand capitalism and I'm having my say by not purchasing these new platform.

Congratulations Magpul. You just made quite a bit of money
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:05:20 PM EDT
Its no improvement over an AR15.  I doubt its near as accurate as an AR15.  Thus FN can shove the SCAR up its arse.

Looks like I'll be pinching my pennies for one too.




To the OP Gunwriter can you give FN reps the link to this thread.  Its been a shitty 24 hours so we all need a laugh.

Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:06:12 PM EDT
No thank you. I'll pass. I'd rather buy an original FN FAL made in Belgium for that price. FN's new line of civilian weapons (PS90, FS2000, SCAR) don't impress me at all.


My next high-dollar purchase is gonna be a HK417.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:06:24 PM EDT
You are right..........I dont like it, and it's more than I can really pay for one........I wanted one, but at that price, I will wait on the ACR's pricing, or barring that is too high, will look at the SIG 556 Classic.........or just get another AR-15  

Quoted:
Well.....you are NOT going to like this

just heard from FN

SCAR 16S is $2,696.56

Frak......

glad my AR does everything I need for that price....

for that amount

I can have one nice 5.56 carbine, a .22 upper, 6.5 upper and maybe even a .458 SOCOM upper......

Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:07:42 PM EDT
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 1:08:33 PM EDT
$2,700?

-Buy List-

1. Bushmaster ACR
2. LaRue Stealth
3. FN SCAR


Well, that just made feeding the other two big purchases easier...

Okay, they can keep it.  I'll buy an ACR for $1500.  Or a tricked out AR15 for $1500.

It's a fine rifle.  But at a price that's simply impractical.

And I was REALLY looking forward to one, the stock design is great and actually fits me
