I’m in the market for the 16s, and as a Massachusetts resident they can be hard to come by.
I found a private seller offering a FDE SCAR 16s with an EOTech 512 + magnifier, bolt assist, altered charging handle, single point sling, MA pre ban magazine, and a custom painted pelican case that reads “Scarlett.”
Those aside, an issue I have is the custom paint work he had done on the rifle. On the stock, there are stapled up wounds, one on each side, with the name Scarlett in red on the lower receiver near the mag well. To me, that reduces the value of the gun and limits potential buyers in the future. Not to mention, the stock is pinned (stupid MA law) to a length that is too long for me, so I may have to pay to get the stock altered or replaced.
He is asking $3000 for everything minus the optics, $3650 with the optics. Given that the gun has a few hundred rounds through it, the pinned stock, the paint work, and the fact he has been trying to sell it for five months with no luck, I was wondering what to shoot him an offer for.
I was thinking between $2500-3000 for the whole setup. Plus, I would be driving nearly 3 hours to get it.
Need some opinions, thanks!
