Well, if $1,700 was too much, you certainly won't like $2,300. It's crazy! I should have bought one when Mooney's had some. Dang, dang, dang!

Wish I wouldn't have bought all these FAL mags, now. I guess I could always get an FAL, though. An FN might be cheaper at this rate.

I guess that makes the dpms ap4 for $1550 the same day was a "really" good deal! Some dealers are taking order but i think they are fudging on the 6-12 week wait time they are advertising. kerry

I just picked up a LAR-8 at a gun show 2 weeks ago. $1200.

So far I'm really liking it. You can see pictures and a range report in the RRA forum under Industry.

I just happened to get one at the gun show last weekend. $1750! It definitely hurt the wallet. I've been on a waiting list for about 5 months for one at a local shop.

Kerry - what show did you go to? If it was the Saxet, then you saw the one I bought...

Yeah, I picked it up in the first 30 minutes of the doors opening. Three people tried to look at it while I was waiting in line, and it felt good to tell them that it's mine.

Nah, haven't gotten a chance to fire it yet. I think I'm taking it to the Appleseed shoot in Daviila on Dec 6.

I still need to get a front sight for it and some mags.

i picked one up at the dallas market hall show back in September. 1300 OTD. However, i still haven't taken to the range as i just got my scope on it the other night (waited on Larue mount) and i was tryign to break in the safety selector a bit (i thought it was too stiff) and the following happened.

Spoke to RRA and they are sending me a new safety selector, no questions asked (the 2nd time i called). The first time I called they wanted me to speak to a technician because of the difficulty it would take to break the safety selector.
