Whatever.

Actually I have a picture of a super tactical airsoft setup. Don't worry it's sitting in my safe.

It's very practical for me, because I'm elite special forces. Or something.

:cya:

I wouldn't mind having it if I was actually trained to use it with that setup.

Before the people start hating on my comment, I'm all about being practical. Practical is not a 12lb setup I am not trained for and might not prefer. There's nothing wrong with a non-race car driver owning a race car. < Disclaimer.

It's actually only an auction for the gun. And blue we all know you are really elite special forces ;). And anyways I have to imagine sf would like to use what works also, I mean I would like to think. But hey what do I know I'm still to busy trying to convince my buddies tac. Lights are the worst idea for homedefense.

All said it's a cool gun, but the accessories pictured are both misleading, and very meh in my opinion. For multiple reasons i won't go into.

I said no because I'm more concerned with the $4500 price tag.

I know it is full auto but that is a strike against it IMO - I couldn't afford to feed it after I bought it. Besides, a handheld .308 on FA? OMG!
On a lesser note, while the handle & light are ok, I'd rather have the pressure switch mounted in the handle for the light & not have that laser thing at all unless I absolutely had to. More weight & more stuff to get snagged on.

Imagine having to trudge around holding that up for hours. Dumb. Why include all that junk on it in the pics if you only are selling the rifle.. Show the gun off, not the toys.

Always makes me think of that silly AR pic with 20 attachments on it.

ok, it ended with reserve not met at 4.5K - alos note the small print "THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE WEAPON ONLY. ALL ACCESSORIES WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL COST" so all the attachemtns are on top of whatever the reserve is...
