Looks like some one took a crap and took pics of it ??? ??? ???

That tan/brown is soooooo UGLY.. what happened to good ol black? Hell even the HK grey was better.

It'd look "somewhat" better if the two colors matched and one wasn't more brown than the other. $2500 bucks for what? It still spits out 223 bullets like all the rest. ???

I like the front sight on it. But it does look like it could be sturdier. Or just more solid. If fact that is the kind of sight I hope Alex comes up with to fit on top of the gas block. Otherwise I agree with the post put up to date. I WILL NOT pay $3000 for a rifle that takes 5.56 NATO. If the military is even paying $2500 I think they are getting ripped off. Oops, I meant we the tax payers are getting ripped off.

Again, the XCR looks like (& is :2cents: ) a better value.

I don't mind the colors but that barrel is looong. It needs to be cut down to look proportionate to the rifle.

Agreed, I wouldn't pay that much for anything that shoots 5.56, not unless it was hand assembled, fitted and engraved.

Holy shit... that Gunbroker add is from my favorite shop, less than 5 minutes from where I work. Maybe I should stop in there and see what they want for it.

What I don't get is the magazine. Why just coat/paint/anodize the part sticking out of the magwell? Why not just do that extra few inches? The same for the floorplate.

I stopped by the gunstore today just hoping to see one. After these pictures, I'm almost glad I didn't. That's really ugly! I just don't get the color mismatch unless it saved them a few bucks.

It is nearly impossible to anodize the same color as plastic, at least that is what I am told. Even an AR upper and lower can be anodized at the same time and be different shades due to different metal.

The first one has hit gunbroker .....


http://gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=120085440

There's another auction going on for one that hasn't even arrived at the dealer's yet <g>

tk
00 is not a bad price, but I think it will go up to 00.

If they come in black and drop it to 00 then I am picking one up.
Uh... $2,800 is the starting price. What is the actual msrp anyway? I'm not saying I wouldn't own one, but if that barrel can't be shortened to at least 14", fuggedaboudid. That think looks ridiculous.
