Easier said than paid for. I really like the M1A but I think I'm priced out of it.
How difficult are they to put a scope on? I was hoping to land on a rifle with a standard rail or flat top setup.
I'm not sure I like those side mounts, they kind of mess up the looks for me.

I'm really warming up to the FNAR...
Give in to the madness "one of us, one of us..."

BTW, the BAR Shorttrac buttstock can be modded to fit the FNAR, for a more "traditional" sporter profile without the pistol grip. I wish FNH offered it as an option or even "upgrade" from their parts department, since the pistol grip is what turns off the majority of people who decide against the "hicap" BAR.

I haven't checked, but it's likely the prices of FNARs are bidded up (slightly) less than their AR/military competitors by dummies right now. I just got a great deal on a shotgun from Gunbroker (I think) solely because so many folks are distracted by Plastic-Panic.

EDIT: Yup, they've "only" gone up 30-40%, as opposed to tripling in value (1200-1400). Makes them an even better choice over an AR pattern rifle for affordable accuracy than ever (do I sound like a car salesman yet? :P)

Agreed, the prices aren't absurd so far.
I'm not going to buy anything for a few weeks and keep a close eye on the prices instead.
If the FN's also start to climb I'll grab one before it too gets silly.

I like the pistol grip on it

Truth be told its exactly what I'm looking for, it checks all the boxes I started with, and then some...
