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......

Yeah, even if it is possible to buy this before the inevitable ban, not many will at that price.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:30:23 PM EDT
Better come with a B!*wjob for that price (and do the dishes as well)
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:30:46 PM EDT
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:30:48 PM EDT
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.

I can't wait to see what the price will be when they realize Obama got elected.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:31:22 PM EDT
Yep, they released the price after the election

I wonder what it would cost if McCain had won...
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:31:42 PM EDT
I wouldn't pay that much for two SCARs.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:32:00 PM EDT
I do like the price.  I can afford it, but I don't want to afford it.

Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:32:36 PM EDT
If that is the correct price and not some FN person just trying to get us to go away (I've called too...) then there is no chance in hell I'll be buying a SCAR as planned.

N...F...W!
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:33:11 PM EDT
They sure are proud of their new product.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:33:30 PM EDT
It's the correct price, they contacted me to release it.....
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:34:21 PM EDT
Agreed.  That's well over what I'm willing to pay.  I'll just build another AR instead and save half the money.

Wake me up when the price hits $1,600.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:34:31 PM EDT
I'll take two!

They must have realized that they aren't going to be selling any of these to the military now that Comrade Obama has been elected and is vowing deep cuts to defense spending, and FN decided to recoup it's R&D costs from the civilian market.

Group buy for $2,400 per unit?

Why are they calling it the 16s?

I'd only pay $1500 max.  screw that.

Jesus fucking christ...

I could buy 6 AK-74s and a Russian Mail Order Bride for the cost of that..
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:35:38 PM EDT
Damn the SCAR isnt that big of a deal who in their right mind would pay that for some polymer and metal?
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:35:41 PM EDT
is that MSRP? wouldn't the real cost be about $2200?
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:35:56 PM EDT
ACR it is.

Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:36:05 PM EDT
Well ........................ they can keep that.


Let's see how the Bushmaster ACR does.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:36:06 PM EDT
I could build four AR15s for that price !
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:36:15 PM EDT
FUUUUUUUCK THAT!
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:36:21 PM EDT


You know the kool-aiders will still buy it.

"The SCAR is so much better than the piece of crap M16, even the military is getting rid of it!"

How much does a piston AR upper go for? Because that'll do everything this ugly thing will

So what if it was?

I want one.  Really bad.  Not bad enough for that stupid price.
Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:37:01 PM EDT
They may just be figuring that they will not be able to produce that many, so why not try to recoup their R&D as soon as possible.

Just saying.

+1

Now that FN released its price watch Bushmaster price the masada @ $2100 and call it a "deal"

There was a press release from the military that said what they pay per unit.


It was $2200ish for the SCAR S with 3 uppers, suppressor, and 10 mags.  Slightly more for the SCAR L.  

FN can go pound sand.   My interest just evaporated instantly.

I am guessing because it has a 16 inch barrel and is Semi-auto

If it was $1800, yes.  $2100, maybe.  Now, no way.

I don't even think the Kool-aiders will buy it.

That is WAY TOO much.

DAAAAYAAAAAAM.


Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:39:13 PM EDT
I find that price hard to believe.  It is outrageously high.




Bushmaster ACR for me.

Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:39:24 PM EDT
So a plastic gun is $2700 and I can buy 3 AR15's for that amount, plus additional parts for breakage with ease?

Again, FUUUUUUCK THAT!  This is 50 cal territory and I'd much rather have a 50 than a plastic novelty.  The AR works.

I wanna hear from all the people in the other civilian SCAR thread talking about how they'll get one as soon as possible since it's the most hardcore ultimate OMGWTFBBQ battle rifle ever devised because SOCOM uses it. While at the same time they claimed that the Bushmaster ACR/Masada will sit on shelves. Ha.

I bet the Bushmaster reps just got a little more spring in their step. Assuming the ACR does actually get produced.

Link Posted: 11/5/2008 12:41:41 PM EDT
They can keep it. The estimated price @ both SHOTs was said to be $1800 for the L. I can get a sweet custom 1911 or kitted out piston AR for that, someone at FN be hedging on it becoming a collectors item.
