No experience, but all the reviews say they are fine. The only guys that talk bad about them are the guys that insist on buying the top dollar guns like Armalite or Lewis Tool; and all they can argue is that they think fit and finish are superior, and their guns are made by companies that have actual military contracts.

A friend of mine has been trying to sell his. The only reason he's moving it is that he finds it to be to heavy to carry all day (old guy like me). He's not having much luck with a buyer. I think he's asking to much for it. It's the long barrel version. He's got some fancy scope on it and is asking $2,500. Other than that I've never even shot it.

OH! I didn't notice you lived in the land of the lost...or the state of perpetual ILL. :whistle:

Nice state to drive out of that's for certain.

Of course there were some mighty fine bars on the east side of the river when the drinking age was 18 there and 21 in MO. Spent a lot of time over there under the I270 and Chain of Rocks bridges partying on the canal. The drag strip was another favorite location in the summer months, we were there racing on Wednesday night grudge matches at least three times every month when it was opened. Race all ya want for six hours for $10 dollars back then. Good times. Raced my old 68 Nova, then my 74 Monte Carlo with a 454, then my 78 GMC 4wheel drive with 450hp, then my 1980 HD Sporty and finally my 84 Softail when I was in the area on visits. Then I moved away for ever.

I'm sure it is. A guy buys a rifle put a fancy scope and all kinds of bells a whistles on it and expects to get what they have in it back. Maybe the guy buying it does want all that crap on it.

Not trying to pry but a little perspective on the reason for that kind of tax would help. 2 million dollar house? :shock: :lol:

My taxes are about $350 a year on 13 acres. :whistle: But the perspective on that is the land is worth WAY more than the house and outbuildings combined. My house was appraised at 12K, the barn at 4k and the other outbuildings at about 1k. I can only insure my barn for 10k because it's not used for commerce. That amount would not even pay for a new foundation on a new barn if this one burns down or blows over. Yup, 12k for my house because it's 114 years old, is made out of 2x4's, is poorly insulated, and has burned at least three times that we know of before we moved in. It's piecemeal construction followed no common theme like some other farmstead homes. The floor sags about 2" in three feet in the dining room and there ya have it, my perspective. Oh yeah, my front wall moves in and out about 3" if I push on it. I just noticed that yesterday when I was working on the windows. :thumb: But the roof doesn't leak ....yet. But it's gettin close.

The 1st house I bought here in town, I paid $8,000 for it in 1987. Even had a small detached garage. I really moved up 10 of 11 years ago and spent $36,000 for a double-wide on a basement with almost an acre. I KNOW that 1970's trailer-house motif will come back in fashion!! Then I'll make a killing on it when I sell... property taxes are about $800 a year.
I can't believe people spend more on something to drive than I do on a house!!! :shock:
