Cost prohibitive, considering what a new Colt 9mm carbine costs. Not many, if any customers would be willing to part with over $1,000.00 for a high quality conversion kit considering the market offers complete weapons priced in the same range.
Not many SCAR 16/17's selling compared to AR's.
Of those few sales, compared to AR's, a fraction would be interested in 9mm SCAR conversions.
I hate AR's so much I am in the few that would be interested in a SCAR 9mm conversion in the $1200.00 range - there is not doubt that it is not coming. FNH would probably want $1500.00.
Tavor for me with 9mm conversion...
Just some thoughts.
It irks me that this boils down to cost. For a user like me it's about UTILITY and FLEXIBILITY. I want a compact system that fits in a single case and can fill several rolls with a quick parts swap. Like on my AR15, I have a nicely tricked out Ruger 1022 that a drop in 22lr AR kit can't touch in accuracy or reliability but that doesn't diminish my interest in a CMMG top of the line 22lr conversion kit.
Having a single Pelican case with a BCM carbine with both 5.56 and 300BLK uppers with a 22lr kit means that single case can get tossed in the back of the Jeep and fill multiple roles with less to keep track of, less space and overall lighter load to accomplish the same tasks as 3 different rifles.
I wouldn't care if a SCAR caliber conversion was $1500, I'd buy every caliber that I use and not blink an eyelash about the price.
