Looking for SCAR 16 FDE - NIB or Used

I am going to see if an interesting offer brings anything interesting out of the woodwork. I am beating the bushes to find an FN SCAR 16 in FDE. The firearm does NOT have to be new...in fact provided that it was properly maintained even if it had 1,500 rounds through it...that is no problem. I am not looking to pay gunbroker.com price for it either. [Also I don't want a firearm that has been permanently altered to be non-free state compliant e.g. gluing the folding stock so it can't be undone] Hence, here goes....anyone that hooks me up with said carbine will receive a bounty paid in brand new Lake City XM855 green tip ammo for every dollar under $3,500 the rifle costs me...exclusive of shipping and insurance.

In other words....if someone finds me the SCAR 16 FDE for $2,500....they will receive 1,000 rounds of brand new Lake City M855 5.56x45 green tip as a finders fee.......and most of us know what ammo prices look like today.

The SCAR 16 is intended to be the little brother to my SCAR 17.

We.......it can be done...I just picked up an FDE SCAR 16....for < $2750.....and of all things off of gunbroker.com She is auction# 333886620 .....had roughly 200 rounds through it..that is roughly $500 less than any other one I have seen...so it seems that deals are starting to show up again.

[Well....finally....here is the SCAR 16 I picked up off of gunbroker for $2700 prior to my adding optics and a bunch of goodies...at least I thought it was a sane price.[URL=http://s1348.photobucket.com/user/ ... .jpg[/img][/url]

Nice, great catch! Everything is going back down. People just have yet to realize it.

It's not a fast process, but it is starting to trickle, and pour in some places. :)
