    Bought an M16/Shrike today, have to wait for the papers to clear on the lower receiver. Hopefully the Shrike runs well. .

    How did you get that, I thought those were preordered like 7 years ago and then the company changed ownership like 5 times or something and none have yet been released? Details please!

    There are a few around for sale. This one is one of the later models I think/hope.

    Paid 18500. So figure 10-11 for the lower and 7.5-8.5 for the upper.

    Going to get one of these when I get a little spare cash. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2m9N6Cd67Q

    Have bills to pay and already busted my budget on guns this year!

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: vman</div><div class="ubbcode-body">That cost $18.5k???

    Why </div></div>

    Well the M16 lower reciever costs 10-11 because our lovely government decided that us common folk shouldn't have machine guns and banned the manufacture of them in 1986. (with a voice vote amendment that many argue didn't legally pass).

    And the upper was about $7500 because they were expensive to begin with and few have been released. I may lose some money on the upper if/when they become more readily available.

    That's pretty neato. Still probably cheaper than any other transferable beltfed in the same caliber.

    ..

    Six different models, three of which work at all...which did you get? You paid $7k+ and think/hope? Remember, the Shrike will chew up an unprepared lower, you have work to do.

    I'm glad you bought that from that seller in Pennsylvania because you saved me $$$ by preventing me from buying it!

    I hear that. And, at $20k, you could throw in some plains game animals for good measure.

    What got my attention is where they are actually letting you own that in MD. I thought they knew better than to let the average citizen own something like that down there.

    Different bolt catch and buffer/spring is all that is required IIRC. Where did you find all the Shrike info? Info on the net seems to be scarce..

    1, hope to get a 12.5" in the future. Need a new can too, not sure how much full auto my Gemtech M4-96D will handle. .

    Well, I don't really like to shoot animals that don't hurt me, I'm not really into "sport hunting". I like depopulation shooting better.

    And the lower will more than likely appreciate in the future.

    MD is actually pretty Class 3 friendly. And when you use a trust, you don't have to ask the local donut cruncher for permission. .
    We are a conservative state except for the 4 counties that are full of leaches/minorities/.gov workers. They ruin the rest of the state.

    Well what fun would 100 jamming beta mags be in a semi-auto? The full auto switch was 10-11K of the cost. .

    It takes at least 4 months to get through the BATF. After 90 days you can call them and they have to give you a status.

    I put 350 rounds through it in magazines today. I used a Bushy lower. Only problems I had were short stroking when I was playing with the gas settings and I had a trigger reset problem with the lower. Other than that 100% functioning.
