Yeah, that's what I was thinking! The seller's got some reason for trying to move this rifle - as new - for (What?) the retail price. Biggest thing I've got against it, though, is the brass. If the SHTF where do you get 223 WSSM cartridges or brass from?
This is one of the main reasons, 'Why' I've always stayed with 30-06, 12 gauge, 7.62x39mm, and 5.56x45mm. True, I love 6mm rounds; but, heck, they're mostly for fun.
