    I paid $2000 for mine and if I knew that I should have paid $1500. I am not sure what I would have done. Considering right now they are hard as hell to find, I was lucky to find one that was $2000.00.

    I do understand your frustration when the dealer acts like you're getting a good deal and in reality they are the ones hosing you. Not cool. And when it comes to resale value does the average consumer ask whether it's a 9000 code or not? Does it devalue the gun if it is? That's the question. To me it's kind of like buying something on sale, yeah you bought it on sale but if you can't buy it onsale again it is worth as much as an item that never was on sale.

    Just enjoy your FS2000, prices of the past are just that long gone. There is no more $1500, 9000 code FS2000’s. I also kick myself for not buying a few more long arms at yesteryear prices.

    I think I have a 9000, it's a fantastic gun. I've never had any issues with it. Enjoy it!

    All FS2000's operate, shoot, are maintained, and are warrantied the same...
    It's not like there's really a "superior" grade and an "inferior" grade IMHO.

    FN has made some bolt carrier design changes over time, but that doesn't mean the new black ones are necessarily "worse" than the older chrome ones..

    FN offered some great pricing on some rifles, effectively to liquidate excess supply. It worked.
    Some of us were fortunate enough to enjoy that pricing directly. Others are benefitting because it means there are more FS2000's available in the market than there would have been otherwise. Others were adversely impacted by lower resale values for FS2000's than their rifles would have demanded otherwise.

    My opinions.

    I think your cursed.

    I think you should give it to me, so that you will no longer be cursed.



    Why would you think it's cursed??? You got an awesome rifle for cheaper than a non-9000 FS.


    Take the thing shooting, and then tell us you are cursed with a sh!t eatin' grin, from ear to ear.

    But with all this warm fuzzies, the question still rears it's head. If you had a non 9000 code gun and a 9000 code gun and they were the same price and you were buying, which would you pick and if would you use the 9000 code as leverage to lower the price. Also if you were selling a non 9000 code gun would you bring it up the differences if someone mentioned they could get a 9000 code gun cheaper?

    Any gun is worth exactly what a real buyer with real cash is willing to pay for it, at that precise point in time. No more, no less. All other considerations are secondary.

    Sure, if I had a non-9000 gun, and wanted to sell, I'd try to find someone who "cared" that it was somehow "better" than a "cursed 9000" gun. As a seller, that would be a good tactic. If I was a buyer, I'd try to convince the seller that they were asking too much, because the "value" of FS2K's has been depressed by the "flood" of overrun guns into the market at lower prices, and that they'll never get what they're asking, and therefore should lower their price. That's a good tactic for a buyer.

    If one person THINKS that the non-9000 guns are "worth more" - and is actually willing to back that up with cash - then they ARE "worth more" at that point in time, for that specific transaction. But it's not because of some material difference in the gun.

    Back 20 years ago, I bought a Colt Mustang in Nickel, because I didn't want to spend the money to get the more expensive, "nicer" stainless one.
    A few months back, I sold the nickel mustang for twice what a stainless would go for now. Because now the nickel is perceived to be more desirable for some reason (rarity?). Perhaps the super special relatively rare military overrun 9000-coded FS2000's will be worth a lot more in the future because they are perceived as relatively rare. I doubt it... but anything's possible.
