Default Can someone justify paying $3000 for a SCAR?

Just curious if there are any of you that would pay the rediculous price for a SCAR? I've shot them and they are a nice rifle, but can you really say they are three times as nice as a quality AR?

I cannot justify spending that for one but I could easily justify charging that much for one.

once a gun has hype (call of duty) you can jack the price through the roof, anything is like that, the prices for used honda civics went through the roof when fast and furious got popular and theres still a lot of people that think a 1.8 litre jap 4 banger can make a faster 1/4 mile than a blown alcohol big block if they gel their hair hard enough and channel drifting montages in their head. guns are the same way....movies and holywood and the anti gun people made the ak-47 popular, then the ar platform and now the scar is the new hype gun that everyone has to have because it just has to be the best gun on the planet if a video game says it is.

This....

Not to mention that comparing it to one of the most popular platforms on the planet is a bad idea. AR's are punched out so fast by so many companies that they are nice and cheap. The SCAR is not manufactured on that level. So, they can charge a premium. If you pumped them out at the rate that AR's are made they would likely be much cheaper.

true, i didnt think about volume sales, and really the ar could be profitable at a cheaper price than you see now, hype is keeping the price up, just like alot of the ak platforms, the core of the issue is that almost all guns of all types are the absolute best for something, it all depends on the job you're trying to do, my 45-70 isnt going to be great for varmit hunting but if you need to put a 300-500 grain slug in something and keep the velocity down to mitigate shock damage to the meat theres not much that will do the job outside of the old straight walled big bore stuff, but when you wanna pop prarie dogs at 400 yds then 22-250 is definitely a contender.

I thought I saw you or Bigrick post up some pics of their SCARS. Glad the economy has allowed someone to buy one.
