I attended the c&e gun show in hickory nc today. I struck up a conversation with one of the dealers. Of course I asked if he had a SCAR. He told me he just took one in on trade recently, scar17 in black, slightly used but in great shape and would have it at the show tomorrow. He told me he would take $2,000.00 for it. He also spilled the beans and told me he only had $1500.00 invested in it. Unfortunately, as much as I would like to buy it for myself, I just don't have the funds. So, if any of my local SCAR brothers are in the market. I feel sure that $1800.00 cash would buy this gun. I apologize for not remembering the dealers name. However, his location in the building is pretty much front & center of the showroom. Early bird will get this worm. Go get it!!!
