I am very interested in one of these M17s. I've seen some of the pics pyropig sent me, I've looked at Kurt's site for customization and I think I'm ready to invest in one.
I've seen that pre-bans are around $1,000 and post-bans are about $700. Why is this? What is the difference? Last I heard, the only difference was a minor mechanical issue with the pre-bans which Bushmaster fixed in the post-ban model. So why would the pre-ban be more expensive?
Also, I saw on Bushmaster's site that they are not selling firearms to the general public at this time. Is there any other way to pick up a new one other than gun shows? In other words, are you aware of a place that has them in stock and I could place a phone order. I could surely have one shipped to my local firearms dealer if I could locate an M17s.
Thanks in advance for your answers. I'm eager to pick one up. If I like its performance, I'm sending it off to Kurt's. What a drag that I waited until they aren't available to finally decide!
