Hell, I know where I can I get a De-Blinged version for 2 Grand! AND it come with accessories like 8mm, 30-06 barrels (currently running 7.62 Nato), carrying case, etc. Just ask the people at Jay’s NorthEast Shoot and Breda’s NorthCoast Shoot on how well it shoots.
Hell, for $17,000, I could get a Barett, a couple of “SCAR Heavies,” ammo…..
In the Rock Island Armory Museum, they have a gold-plated M60 machine gun. If I recall correctly, it was the 1 millionth one produced. The gold plating looks a little scabby in spots, but it was one of those company milestone things (SACO, I think.)
