It's black and not tacticool FDE. So that lowers the value a lot to operators who are operating operationally.

Maybe seller is living in the days of mail order guns. Gotta love it. What could go wrong here?

He did give everyone his phone number though. So there is that. You could always call and point out all the flaws in his posting. See if he is completely mental or just doesn't know what he's doing on gun broker.

Me thinks a Nigerian accent will answer, or some poor guy that someone is f'ing with.

Mike emailed me this morning and wanted to know if I wanted the rifle and if I meant to click on buy it now since he hadn't heard from me yet and other people were interested in the rifle.

I sent him the shipping address and have not heard back from him.

I just now sent him another message and asked if he had calculated the shipping yet.

I called the number and the kid that answered seemed legit. We have agreed to payment via credit card for protection. If this deal goes through I will be his biggest supporter.

He was also emailed the link to this thread.

So only time will tell, but I am feeling good about this deal.

Not everything has to be a scam.

I got my SCAR 17 Black for 1800 locally on Arms List

met the guy in the parking lot. Looked at the gun, he just got it literally 1 month before and is losing about 300 on it but needs the money that day for a transmission repair.

I helped him get a new one ordered from Autozone and saved another 90 bucks for him by using my .mil discount and I got points for the deal also. He gave me the magazines for nothing.

Guy never responded after the phone conversation with a shipping amount. Nothing lost on my end, but nothing gained.
