SCAR-17 Dealer Price?

Hey,

Finally got enough dough saved up and wondering what dealer price is on a SCAR-17? I figure I'll be paying close to $3000 retail.

Thanks in advance.

I can buy them for < $2900 when they are in stock, ($26xx) depending on the qty. Right now you are looking at a 4 to 6 months wait.

Is the wait because of FN strike then the back order or are they being bought quicker than they can make them.

I don't know, but they have been hard to get after the recall last year.
I see them listed for $3299 at the one place that has them in stock.

I'm trying to stow some cash for one. Next batch is due in 90 days, according to an FN source. That's for the dark watch color. The more accurate black ones are not due in for a very long time.

FN has a Military Discount program--don't pay retail!!!!!

They have a fixed price for the discount--pretty sure its $2799 or close to that. Pretty much dealer cost.

What is this "... more accurate black ones ..."?

Is it a different barrel? I don't get it.

It's an old wives tale. But it's totally true.

It's true. The guys that shoot the tacicool FDE rifals are less accurate than the guys that shoot the plain jane black rifals.

Yep,

Local shop put one on order, they say about 2-3 months wait, got quoted the LE/MIL discount price of $2650. Good thing is the SCARs arent on the Maryland State banned list. Even better the dealer does lay-away.

Yippee!
