Cool rifle. It would be worth the price if it were more accurate but 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch groups makes it a 300 dollar gun. The break down/cool factor is not worth it.

With a barrel wrench in my rifle bag I can do the same thing in the same time.

I have a scar heavy. And the Paratus. 16. It's a lot of money. But the break down to put in a back pack is very cool .

Love the gun, but would not buy it at that price. Break down capability is neat, seems to have good bits and pieces, but doesn't make a $2000 difference. I thought my POF308 was a little on the expensive side, but this one is stupid high. They will have to bring it down to $3500 to make it worth looking at. Even then... might have a hard go of it. I sincerely wish them luck though, it's a great looking piece.

You can get it for about $4,300 if you buy it second hand. Heck, you never know when a good rifle in a suitcase might come in handy. Walkin' around with a SCAR can draw some looks, and after the debacle in CT, possibly alot more.

price isn't that bad you would have to pay 3500 or more for a good Remington 700 tactical rifle i would rather pay a little more for this one. the way it breaks down it worth that much more

Wow, maybe they are charging a couple thousand for the suitcase it comes in! I would love to own this weapon... But I would much rather own two scars and a colt 1911 for that price tag.

All these "it's too high priced" comments are before the ban scare. So with the average 308 sellimg for 3-5K what do you think now whiners!

Would I have to wear white cotton gloves and purchase gold bullets for it. I can tell by looking that it would not fit in a lock box nor would they allow it in a bank. Too rich for me....

I agree with others the price is absurd when you could get a SCAR, AR10, a H&K, etc for 1/2 that made by company's that will still exist in 10yrs.

Now that is a fine AR . It should be priced for more than you are asking . State of the art.

How many other takedown .308 semi-autos are out there? Put a Walther barrel and Geissele trigger group in it and it soon adds up.

Couldn't you buy 2 FNH SCARS for that price?

Gosh darn! This rifle must be gold plated and diamond emblazoned to demand such a price.
