Lol, FN trying to cash in on nostalgia.

Someone will end up paying that much.

I hope they don't start off making hundreds/thousands of them as I doubt the market demand will be there at those prices.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 12:22:03 PM EDT
Are they still using those ugly commercial FN lowers?
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 12:22:44 PM EDT
Yea that shits a bit out of whack.

That being said the FN DMR is fucking amazing
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 12:23:56 PM EDT
What about the semi M249?
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 12:24:47 PM EDT
That's some fucked up shit.

But does it come with a 'Certificate of Authenticity"?








Link Posted: 11/2/2015 12:37:52 PM EDT
Are the M249s listed yet?
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:19:05 PM EDT

 



FNMI marked
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:23:29 PM EDT
I'll be honest, I'd like to own one of each. I just can't see myself dropping ~$1500 for it though.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:28:12 PM EDT
I've been thinking about picking up another M4 clone, as the only other one I have is an older A2 very simple gun I purchased years ago.

I was leaning towards getting a Colt 6920, but if these are priced right I might pick one up at some point. I really like the 14.7" barrel with the pinned flash suppressor.

Not for $1500 though...
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:30:28 PM EDT
Damn I really wanted one of each, but I thought they would be 1000-1200$
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:37:29 PM EDT
I'm trying to remember what the number was but I think it was about $450 for an M4A1 on the CMR.

Uncle Sam discount I guess.

They are supposed to look like the.gov guns, so the machining and marking was changed to mimic what the government gets. R

ETA: they were CNC engraved, not "rollmarked". The markings will still be more consistent than the government guns though.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:43:00 PM EDT
I think Lipseys should have them in stock.



Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:47:47 PM EDT
I would be a buyer in the $750-800 range. Not for $1500, sorry FN...

In todays market of $500-600 ARs, even $850 Colt 6920's, im not paying $1500 for a roll mark.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 4:57:44 PM EDT
$1600 is the MAP.









FN won't let a dealer sell advertise under $1600 if they want to keep being a dealer. I'll guess the average price will be $1700 ish

I wish they'd do stripped lowers.   My issued rifle was an FN M16A2, I'd like to build a clone.

... that's what MAP stands for, no?

What the market will driver the price it is anyone's guess, but doubt they'll move many over $1,000.

Just my stupid opinion, worth nothing.

 This... I was hoping they'd do it in the $3K range...i think theyd sell a fuckton if it was priced reasonably
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 5:26:20 PM EDT
I actually said holy fuck out loud and scared my dog when I saw that price.

No way in shit FN.

I'm with strat. Flood the market with a gun no one wants to pay that much for until they start begging us to buy them.

Well, keep in mind between employees (and their friends and family), and suppliers, a company like FN can probably offload between a thousand to two thousand of these without breaking a sweat.

ETA: I agree the price is going to plummet though. They are way high on MAP.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 7:19:57 PM EDT
I'd be more interested if there was an A2 version.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 7:23:12 PM EDT
I was really excited about these, especially the A4 clone.  Ouch at that price though.
Link Posted: 11/2/2015 10:30:46 PM EDT
Can anyone else confirm the 7k price for the M249s?  That seems high to me. I was hoping for around 5k.

Are they even offering it? That was just a guess at what it would cost based on what the military pays for them.

I doubt the cost of an M249 costs $7k...Probably not even $5k.




Just like an M4 or M16 doesn't cost almost $2k

Fnh I need a semi m240 baaaddddd for a vehicle
Link Posted: 11/3/2015 9:45:19 AM EDT
I'd go for an A4 if they were sub-1k, but then my only nostalgia for FN goes to OSUT.
Link Posted: 11/3/2015 10:42:05 AM EDT
How about a better pic of the rollmark?
Link Posted: 11/3/2015 10:48:44 AM EDT
Very cool, but I like my 6920 I got for $752.
Link Posted: 11/3/2015 10:52:17 AM EDT
I guess the key word is "collector" but damn you can buy a complete 6920 upper on the EE for $400 and make your own.

I can get a KAC for that money. Police discount.

It's about $4K for the military, with accessories. So after FN mods it to fire semi-only and gets in their margin it's going to cost a lot more.

Looks like you can buy the stripped receiver here:

Dude I need some raccoon dick bones, thanks.
Link Posted: 11/3/2015 11:05:10 AM EDT
The NIB rails are driving that cost.






You can get them used for under $100.







With that said, it's nice that someone is finally offering loyal clones.

Just how bad?  

14 grand kinda bad?

I really just want a stripped lower. I have an FN A2 clone built on a NDS lower. It would be pretty cool to put all those parts on an FN lower.
