About 5 years back a very good friend of mine dropped by to show me a Colt National Match AR 15 in the A2 Configuration.
A friend of his was facing bankrupcy and needed cash.
The sellers offer was $1100.00 which included an assault case, 6 mags, cleaning kit, sling, ect...
I was really tempted to ask for the seller number so I chew his ass for trying to rip off my buddy!
But... I could not do that to a good friend so I just told him to buy it... or I would. He bought it.
