Well, aren't you two a barrel of laughs. The scout rifle is versatile. Not a game changer or perfect at any one thing. And mine was under $700 new, so $900 would kind of suck. But hey, go buy something else Mr and Mr grumpy pants.
I paid $750 for mine. And I already own an Noveske a AK-47 and a couple of hunting rifles. I think it's a great rifle for the money. But hey to each their own. We all have something in common. We all love firearms.
