Well, I can only answer that question from my own point of view. I personally wouldn't send that much scratch on a SOCOM. I would rather have a 16" FAL, 10 mags, and 3 cases of ammo.

As for the value of that rifle should you decide to sell it, well, it probably is worth that much.

I just got one at Sporting Arms for $1419.00. Shot 400 rds of Fereral Match 168 BTHP. 1 inch 5 shot groups at 100 yrds from the bench rest.

You need to ask yourself why is he selling it so quick after, apparently, so few rounds.

I wouldn't pay that but the whole SOCOM thing doesn't make a lot of sense to me. A lot of money for what is essentially a marketing gimic. The article in American Rifleman left be unimpressed. By the time you add all the bells and whistles that SOCOM's seem to attract, you're going to be somewhere north of two grand and fifteen pounds of weight. For a rifle that was giving 2 1/2 to 3 inch groups at a hundred.

Pass.

Cj,
Grab it !!!! You can always use it for a year and sell it for about what you bought it for. As far as 3" to 4" groups --- I have yet to hear this kind of group from someone that has owned a Socom. I got 1 1/8" at 50yds and 1 3/4" at 100yds. That was with cheap generic .308 ammo and no optics. I have seen/read that people are hitting 12" steel gongs at up to 500yds. with their Socoms Take care --- Bird aka GF123

Why would you want to worry about 3-5 inch groups at 300yds? This was designed as a CQB/Race gun. The fact it can shoot like that from range is a plus. From the friend of mine that has one, I've heard that it works well. I have one on Layaway at my local gunshop. I'm looking forward to shooting it for the first time and then reporting how it works. And as always, pics will be included.

$1,400 is a good deal. That's what I paid for mine new. The gunshop owner knows me and cut down what he was asking ($1,650).
