I've been hunting for one of these for some time. It's a colt M4 look-alike. It seems like these are relatively scarce. I'm curious if they are scarce because they stink up the place or there is a high demand for them. Thanks,

J

JohnnyMo, I have one bought it this summer. The Gun shop I went to had quite a few as a matter of fact he gave me the choice of the one on the shelf or new in an unopened box. There probably is a demand for them. BobK

They certainly don't stink! [:D] Seriously, they're quality with all the right features. I didn't have any problem locating one at a godd price when I went looking. Don't remember the post but someone said he knew a shop in PA that had them for something like $865.00. ETA: Oh and they aren't look-alikes. They're the real-deal. Even says so on the receiver. [:D]

Anyone know of the place in PA that has them for $865? I did a search and could not find the old post. Thanks, Weazer

Yeah, they aren't look-a-likes, not even real close, no sliding stock, no A2 compensator, no bayonet lug, 16.5" barrel, no select fire.

I see you're from AZ. I bought one about 6 months ago from Scottsdale Gun Center. At the time he had several. I paid something like $950 for it. It's a good shooting little gun but keep in mind that Break is freaking loud! --RR

Sorry, I looked for that post too. Couldn't find it. I don't remember what forum it was in either. Just remember someone asking how much. Oh and more info here ... [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=2&f=29&t=141779[/url]

That is a great AR but i don't think you will find one for less than $899.00 retail and this time of year might not help .Keep looking in the shotgun news and find an FFL to do the transfer for you .

Email or IM "ArmyInf" here on the boards. He has them in stock for $967 which includes shipping. He's a great guy to deal with and a board supporter.

I sent mine to Wilson's to have the wannabe-flash-hider muzzle break put on. Then a RAS. Then an Aimpoint with Railgrabber mount. And finally an ARMS #40 BUIS. I've got about $1800+ into it (including the cost of the gun itself). OUCH!!! It does look and shoot awesome, though. I love the "M-4 CARBINE" stamped into the receiver!
