I went looking for a gun this past weekend (I rarely do), I want to share with what I see. My friend is looking for either a Fab-10, or a Valcan lower for an "AR", so I was tagging along. Here's what I see:

a) Keltec SU-16B around $540. Looks nice, feels much nice that SU-16A that I handled before. I think the new front-site makes a lot of differnt. I saw one in black, one in green, and one in desert tan. :) I believe the gree/desert tan ones are a bit more expensive

b) Mini-14 - $620. This one also feels very nice. Again, the new front sight and the new rear-sight is very good.

c) Reminton 7616 - saw both blue version ,and 7616P. It seems like a 3/4 size of 870. It seems shorts too. The sight is similar to the Mini-14/Keltec. Blue version is $799, 7616P is $850

Interesting note, it seems there are a lot of demand for the Fab-10, and Vulcan lower. None of the shop that we visited has any in stock and they are all in backorder with many already put deposit on them.

Damn! Where was this? I only paid $540 for my 7616P (+tax and DROS).

Yes, this was somewhere in the south bay. If you want the name of the place, PM me.

Bill,

The 7616, is the new Remington pump. The $700-$800 tag is very steep. I guess it is new, so they price them a bit higher.
