A few days before the ball started rolling on this most recent shortage/price super inflation, I saw a SCAR 17S at a gun shop in my hometown while I was visiting my father. It was used for 1700 dollars. Unfortunately, I had just run into some financial difficulties that prevented me from using my savings. Now I can't find them for less than 3 grand. Sad days.
Wow, that could have been quite the windfall! If you sold it. I have a hard time selling a gun unless I shoot it very poorly...
