That's right, like HK, I'm exclusive.
To SL8 fans out there, don't get me wrong, it's an exceptional varmint/precision rifle, but it is not a G-36 clone. :/

Also, it's barrel may be 5.56, and the gun just marked .223. I believe they did this with the SL8. They labeled it .223 Remington on the outside, and in this little space on the inside, it is marked 5.56x45 NATO. And that's how it was....
look at the prices of the SCAR, ACR, IMIs tavor, the real steyr AUGs... yeah, $2,500 is my bottom end guess.. i have a LONG list of guns id rather have instead.. interesting enough is i dont think the prices of the next 5 guns i want combined will equal the price of the G36
thats just for the down payment, right?
I'll save my excitement for when someone brings a next-gen platform to the market at a price that competes with the 6920, that's when things will get interesting.
Just my .02,
That's honestly what I'm thinking. What is there to be excited about? Most gun owners can't afford it, and if they can, then as mentioned earlier, they're far better off getting a 6920, T1, and a few cases of 5.56.
If a buyer wants the latest greatest and it doesn't look like what everyone else on the block has, then expect a premium.
Or buy/build another AR for $800 like all the rest of us who can afford that. Really, tho, complaining you can't afford an exotic import battle rifle because it's too expensive is like complaining you can afford a Mercedes or BMW. If everyone could, then it would be considered passe, common as dirt.
You want a genuine Rolex for 19.99?
Be careful what you ask for. In the game of image building, you pay to keep others out, and that is what makes you look different. Otherwise you're another guy in Walmart Wranglers.
Oh boy, I can hardly wait.
What is a Rolex? Is it fancy pair of Italian made loafers?
Edit: what's wrong with Walmart wranglers? My wife bought me some pants for $30, half off the other day. I was kind of bummed when I learned that $30 was the price AFTER the half off discount.....
Edit to the edit: I didn't see the post on rumoured pricing before my original post, $1500 doesnt seem unreasonable for pricing on something like a G36, although it would be out of character for HK to offer a product with out the usual "HK style" pricing.
I get what you are saying in regards to cars, clothes, and personal accessories though.
I think the luxury/exotic rifle market has become crowded since the creation of the G36. It also will probably compete with their M416-derived products. I would have preferred to see them work on streamlining those and trying to lower the price point. Wouldn't mind having a piston HK AR, but at the going price I am not sure they offer much to a casual civilian user like myself.
Except it appears to unfortunately use AR mags, and a different (uglier) stock. That railed forearm has to go, as well.
You can buy H&K AR steel mags......alas not cheaply. My K2 came with two of them.
