I just wanted to ask if some people are really that stupid??? This kit went for $811.00!!!!! WTF?!?!?!?! Unless the pinhead already owns an M1 or M1A1, that's pretty damn expensive just to make a wall-hanger. I know Class III owners need replacement parts, but damn!

To make a functional rifle, he'll need a 16+" barrel ($100 from Tommygunshop.com) unless he goes SBR route ($200 for tax stamp). He'll need to make or buy a receiver ($260 for an 80% from Philadelphia Ordnance). He'd need a custom bolt with separate firing pin to fire from closed-bolt position. He'd need a striker or hammer. He can't use any of the original FCG parts because of the select fire (could modify selector to only work in semi-auto though). The wood is beat to hell too.

I guess some people have more money than brains. I guess he could sell it in 6 months and try to get some sucker to pay $1000 for it...

Yep, there's a lot of crazy bidding going on in that sucker's market. This recent 80% 1911 frame went for $660.00. Man, I could buy more than 5 COMPLETE frames for that price! Not to mention, he still has to mill and fit that thing and being that the buyer paid that much for it, I don't know if he has enough intelligence to complete it. A 5 minute google search would have saved him most that money...

I wish I had an extra 600.00 to use on gun parts...

The guy who paid $600+ for the frame also paid $160 for one of the $14.99 Tapco FAL castings! He also paid out almost $750 for 3 1911 slides! I really need to sell this guy some of my broken and beat up parts. :lol:
