    The XCR 6.5 Grendel parts are not yet available. Right now they are making 5.56, 7.62x39, and 6.8spc.

    I'm also going to consider the Masada/ACR dead unless there is further evidence to the contrary.

    Regarding the SCAR prices, yes, they are high, but you can't blame FN for any amount over the recommended 2700, as they have no control of that. I've heard the dealer price is around 2100; the MSRP is 2700, and anything over that is simply supply and demand at work. Whether the demand is in line with what the rifle can actually do... well, that is another matter.

    I could order a SCAR for $2500 right now, but it just doesn't do anything for me at that price.

    I wanted an XCR, the price was right at my limit, but robinson just seems to be a horribly run organization that can't come close to their own deadlines, they aren't getting my money either.

    Ar15 it is.

    Supply and demand, folks, supply and demand.

    I wouldn't pay $4000 for a SCAR, no way, but the fact that they're moving on gunbroker shows that enough people are right now. Yes, it's expensive, but given the hype around the weapon and the Obama panic I'm sure they'll sell every one.

    Robinson holds their XCR deadlines better than Bushy/Magpul have with the ACR, and better than FN has with the SCAR.

    Not to resurrect a dead thread, but the 17S is what I'm saving up for as well. I might pick up a 16S if prices come down any later this year, but otherwise, I have plenty of 5.56mm platforms already.

    The SCAR looks really neat...but I could get a NIB Merkel double rifle for less than that one that sold for 9k.

    Went to local dealer he got a SCAR in today. This guy doesn't usually gouge but he isn't a moron either so he is asking $5,800. I held it and thought for a split second about buying it. Then I realized that for that I can by 4 Overpriced AR's and it just isn't there. I'd give him 3k but 5,800 no way! With them going for 5k + on GB he'll get his asking and make a few bucks.

    I've been looking at piston 556s for a few years now. At the moment, the SCAR and MR556 are interesting, but I'm still in line with others-at these prices ($4K+ on GB as of now), I'll be sticking with my AR.

    For the price of a SCAR, you could(or be close to) get a Class 3, and start shooting FA with a FA_AR-15. Could you not?

    I just saw one on the shelf at a local gun store in Columbus, Ga. They had a sticker on it of $5900......great looking gun.....but that's just too high for my wallet.

    Don't confuse the gougers price with what FN is actually asking for one.

    THe SCAR is here to stay and the prices WILL go down.

    I found a place that had them advertised for $2979 and saw what they were selling on GB for.... So I buy one, sale goes thru, get receipt....
    Now today, the gundealer (pretty big dealer) sends me an email saying "item you purchased is not available this year" and "sale refunded".... ***???

    They supposedly had several of these in their store.... I have a feeling they got wind of what they were selling for, and now of course will sell for double what I "paid" for on their site.... That is soooooo wrong...

    Being out of stock before you can update your site is one thing, but having the sale actually go thru, then come back and say they arent available "this year" is as BS as it gets.... :fire:
