Yep. I agree. 650 is not that bad

I must live in a different world, that kit looks like a $500 kit to me at best. I've seen better kits sit for as much. $650? No way.

Certainly there have been better but with Auxpower lurking it would get swooped up

I still canít believe the kits (BGS, Paraguayan, C1A1, L2A1, etc) and completed rifles (L2A1, Galils, M14ís) I sold for my daughterís education.
But your sacrifice was noble, and the kits were very much appreciated!
