I'm essentially looking at $1000 from Cabela's. That's looking to me like the OP bought, assembled, gave up, and sold or traded it for close to his cost of parts inside 3 months at most.

Or maybe I'm thinking too much. I do that a lot (engineering brain: why do something when we can study it and redesign it 6 ways first?)

Either way, I've decided to learn more about the FAL variants and get what I want after I've done my homework.
