    My criticisms of this product have nothing to do my bank account.

    I strongly concur with @RegularGuy461969 and @dangerdan87 statements above.

    When I heard rumors of these being imported, I was also told they would be 10k+. I would have considered buying one if the lowers had been appropriately marked as “C” and had 171- serial numbers.

    It’s safe to say these will be considered collectors items at some point in the future. What I’ll be curious to keep track of is the actual value relative to the initial sell price.

    Given that we here in germany can have "those 416C" here and that we are the source of them, there has been zero interest in from anyone to build a gun out of those kits. Especially considering the fact that they are not "10k guns" here but they are considered cheap old surplus parts that are around a grand. Zero interest in them. In a market where rebuild HK33 are 1500 bux and rebuild XM177 2k a pop, the elusive 416c has gathered zero interest.

    I assume its because we have the 11in readily available in latest versions directly from hk, and because its rather common knowledge here that the biggest argument for the 416 platform, the impeccable reliability, is the thing that went out of the door with the C concept.
    If someone has the gun, hope you enjoy it. Just giving some context on the "success" in a market where pricetag has not been or is not an issue.

    I mean, is it possible that they didn’t sell out. A sales tactic is to create a desire and many places say things sold out when they didn’t. They just throw them back up for sale a little later to give the perception they’re wanted by many.

    I mean.....it's possible. Is it probable???

    Here's my thing. If I dropped $13K, I would be secure enough in my own choice to show my own pics. I've done it, and don't really care what others think, as I'm certain there are others here, that have dropped some significant coin to have what they thought was important to them.

    Now the fact that no one has posted pics, says {to me at least}, that no one bought in....in my $.02.

    So with that said.....I would still like to see who bought. Chime in.

    Com'on guys...

    What tlrgsxr said... IF you had six figures in your bank account (or seven or eight figures) you probably :

    A) Don't even POST on this forum

    B) Don't even CARE about the cost on any withdrawal below said six figures

    you are talking about a group of people that don't look at things the way we do

    That's what I thought too but SG advised they did indeed sell out of the first batch.
