Anyone who is looking for a SCAR 17 my Local shop here in Ohio just got one in stock in Desert original dress.
He has it priced at $3280 NEW IN BOX!!!
These are good guys to deal with, just opened up around the corner from me.
If anyone has been looking and is interested give them a Call.

No I dont work for them, just a customer of these guys, however if I hadn't just bought my SCAR16S I would be snatching this one up.

NO!

And I thought the $2,800 I saw one for, locally in Utah, was high!

The key word is "saw" one for $2800. Because of the Military contracts currently soaking up these rifles. $3000-3200 is becoming the norm in some areas.
Supply and demand. If it is a product you want you pay the going rate. If you can't or dont want to paythat much for a .308, then dont.
I was merely pointing out that there was one available for the person who wants one.
That being said..... As I said in my post. If I had not just bought the SCAR 16S I would be jumping on this. In my opinion the rifle is worth the coin. Would I like to pay less, Yes, but it ain't likely going to happen soon with the current supply and demand.

Except I bought one yesterday (new, in box, unfired, from a gun store) right here on the AR15.com EE for just under $2800 (even with shipping).



Dealer is around $2400.  CDNN and GT Distributors list them at ~$2600 when they can get them.



People are selling them on Gunbroker for way stupid prices (magazines too).



Magazines retail from FNH USA at ~$35 and there are auctions on GB for "buy it now" at $69 and up.    I back-ordered them off Midway and I'll just wait.



Your mileage may vary.

Surplus Ammo in Lakewood WA had one last Friday for like $2780 or something around that.  I looked at it for a minute, really liked it (especially the light weight, wow!), but cost of rifle, cost of ammo, cost of extra mags ($50+) drove me away.  Maybe someday...

On gunbroker, they are not selling for over $2800

Your dealer sounds like a rip off.

Sure 'bout dat?

Such a good price...

$2500 is a good price, saw a black 17S NIB a couple weeks ago at the local gunshow for that price.
Link Posted: 4/30/2011 4:23:13 AM EDT
I just got a black one for 2400, but I have bought over 10k worth of sights and weapons from the same dealer
Link Posted: 4/30/2011 4:48:44 AM EDT
I think invoice for a 16 is like 2200, a 17 is like 2600 or so. Don't quote me on that.

2800 would be a good price, but 3000, considering that the supply of SCAR 17s is not meeting demand, is not totally unreasonable. That's what I paid for mine.

Of course, I also got a bunch of mags at MSRP to offset the cost of the rifle.

Actually there is at least one auction on GB for an FDE SCAR 17S right now with a "buy it now" of $2759 and another couple with "buy it now" of $3199, so people are asking over $2800 on GB (just nit-picking); but still cheaper than $3280 (plus tax).



Magazines are crazy stupid today also.  $75 for a FDE magazine and $59-70 for a black (Midway lists them for $34.99 with the C&R discount).

Semantics aside, at least one person in this thread says he paid $3K and my local gun thief (Jim's Gun Jobbery in Fayetteville, NC - a well-known "ultra-high-price" dealer) has sold several at their asking price of $3.2K.  One was bought by a good friend who just crapped himself when I told him I paid $2.75K.



You aren't going to pay more than $2.8K. I didn't pay more than $3.8K.  And $3.2K is NOT a good price, but people have paid $3K (and more) for them.

Friend, if you have to be right no matter what, then you are right!  You are.  Always.



And I won't report you for a personal attack in a technical forum.

Really?

M3A1,
No I don't work for them, I am Active Duty Army and I do not appreciate being called a liar. Read my Profile A**hole.

ronin556,
My local shop is NOT a "Rip off", they are trying to make a living, despite ignorant people like yourself.

A serious buyer, not out  just "window shopping" would know that there is a difference between Internet pricing and Local retail pricing and call the shop to discuss the price and possibly work out a deal.

Ignorant people Troll boards such as this and Bitch about prices knowing full well they cannot afford said product regardless of price..
