Now before everyone starts yelling and screaming at me, let me splain' myself.


It is, or was, my understanding that if a guy wanted an M-16, select fire, then it would cost him 8,000 grand +.


Why is this dealer selling this bushy for 1,800?

No need to get into all the need a tax stamp and whatnots, but why is he selling it so low?

He says he can ship it to a class III dealer, which, from what i understand, can sell it to a private party (after of course all the flaming hoops have been passed through.


What am i missing here?

It's a "post-sample", i.e. post-may'86 dealer sample. That means an FFL/SOT may own it (with certain restrictions, IIRC). Ordinary folks can't.

ETA: I'm sloooooow.
