On ARFCOM multiple people say they were contacted by FN reps and told the retail price of the FN SCAR 16S (SCAR-L) is going to be $2700.

I hope this is:
1. Wrong.
or
2. A super high markup over dealer cost so we will see a street price around $2100.
3. The initial price for the first rifles and the price will come down as production increases.

At $2700 I will pass.

Leaves more for everyone else.........

Com'on don't cave in yet......;)

Plus they won't be that many available....so....street price...unknown...

Plus...I've heard that only FN package dealers will be eligible for the rifles....

Plus....they aren't really that good.....

With the way all semi-auto rifle manufacturers are acting today, I'd be surprised if it didn't end up costing more when it finally comes out :rolleyes:.

I'll remain optimistic that the price is a MSRP.

Jesus tap-dancing-Chr*&%!

I could buy 6 AK-74s and a Russian Mail Order Bride for the cost of that..

Seriously, does it come equipped with T&A?

It IS MSRP according to the link....what should be of concern is what the stores are gonna sell them for.....

....or if they are legal by the time they actually hit the streets lol.

I was hoping (against hope) that the SCAR-H would be had for 2k

5x NDS3's
2x Saiga 7.62x39's
5x AR Lowers
and many X Mags instead ;)

I was figuring closer t0 2500 but.....**** happens......

We'll prolly still sell as many as we can get.......takes AR mags and BB shouldn't be too hard to produce....

W/ POF 308 at 2500 and we can't get enough of those....so, I predict sales will be good on SCAR as well....

MASADA.....another good seller....those are what 1500ish.....2000ish

I don't see anything wrong with the price of the SCAR. It's what I expected it to be.

i'd buy one i'd have to sell half my collection to get it. it would be worth it because not to many people will have one.

As much as I love FN products, they get their pries out of The Gougers Handbook.

Doesn't help that the dollars in the ****ter, either.

With that price tag, it better come with a built in ATM.

I want one. When are they expected to be for sell out here?

Wow, that is alot. I expected the SCAR Heavy (.308) to top $2000, but that's too much for a .223 rifle. I was going with the Bushmaster ACR anyway.

Well, thats it. Definitely going Masada.

Is the Masada generally available?

I'm probably still in on the SCAR, too. If that's MSRP I'm hoping they can be had for just under $2k.

sweet, guess i'll finally pick up that Sig 556 in 223 then and wait for a SCAR-H

Now that I have a PTR=91 and can still get a Sig 556, I'm not seeing the big draw for this rifle.

I'm hearing 1Q09 for the release date... hopefully they release them in black.

How much for SCAR-H ?? I'm in for one of those if they will ever be available to us.

Base model Noveske's are around $2000 and some of them go up to $3400... $2700 is a boatload of cash, but all that needs to be added is a sight system, and maybe a light.

Consider this the "early adopter" price. Those that purchase the gun for $2700 are helping FN produce more that will be priced lower later.

The same thing happened with the FS2000 and PS90...

I'll still have to acquire one of these.
