Ok guys,
Well over on AR15.com, there has been two confirmed accounts of SCARS already on dealers shelves in LA, and in OH.
I cannot give exact details, as they did not post any info on WHAT dealers had them in stock, but I'm sure you could find out if you log onto AR15.com and email the members who posted the info.
I know one guy actually fondled one at his local dealer, and it had a $3200 price tag on it!

Anyhow, I was kind of shocked to see that a couple dealers have SCARS on their shelves for sale, which were not presold. I thought most FN Stocking dealers who had sold a pre-determined amount of "FN Dealer Packages" and were knowingly receiving SCARS, had already presold them all. I know for a fact that most dealers have told me that the SCARS had to be paid for up front, before they were received.
Anyhow, maybe someone can give us confirmed answers on the quick detach bbls, and also on the "high round count"/hammer forged bbls???

Most of us are still trying to find out if the SCAR is still going to maintain it's already infamous "high round count" hammer forged bbl? or not??? We are also wanting to know if the civvi SCARS are going to have the quick change bbl feature?
Gosh we SURE hope so. That's going to be a real important factor with the SCAR.
Anyone care to enlighten us? The whole world is crossing it's fingers in hopes of the bbl features being maintained on the 16S.

Yeah, they aren't cheap guys, and to be honest, I like the Storm waterproof, TSA approved, high quality hard case that comes with this first initial production run of SCARS, however, I would rather they have just kept the case and knocked the $175-ish off the price of the gun.
Oh well, at least it's a nice case, and I can't complain. I just hope the damn bbls are the high round count/CHF bbls.
I thought that at first about some of my other guns too, but you really get to appreciate the storm cases after actually having them. Besides, for the bulk pricing, it would probably only know off $80.

And I would certainly NOT pay the insane prices some are willing to pay, even though many think that the price that I paid (msrp otd) is insane.
