All true. A BCM bcg is worth about $375 on EBay right now.
I've managed to build $1200-1600 ARs (old prices) that can do/be whatever I'd expect from them (and with all the 'right' names attached) for $1500 or so in the current market. But my source for BCGs in particular has dried up for the time being. Have a few 'backordered'...we'll see how that works out.
Knowledge, networking/connections/inroads, etc are really the only difference between paying out the bunghole and doing okay at the moment. Truth be told, I earned many of those stripes just barely in time. This happens a year earlier, and I'm screwed.
Let this be a lesson to some of you: value your sources, and have at least one local source (LGS) that you have earned a relationship with.
