As with all firearms purchased through the Internet, this model has to be shipped to an FFL local to you. Said FFL will then require you to complete a form 4473 [atf.gov] which is used to perform a background check. Once you pass that background check, the FFL will transfer the weapon to you. The cost of this transfer depends on your location. Also note, depending on where you live, additional requirement may have to be met. Check with your local FFL or law enforcement office for those and to verify this rifle is legal for you to own.

I just picked this up for 549 yesterday at a local store. I missed out on the 500 deal last month. I expect this to go up significantly soon.

Not a political statement, just trying to prevent a flamewar as a lot of media reporting an AR15 was used and explicit banning of the AR15 is demanded because of that. But point taken. I resized the font and relocated the comment to the bottom of the post.

As far as it being a deal? Check the various sites, panic buying has started again. Pricing is going up and availability is going down. if you are in the marker, this is a pretty decent deal.
Panic buying again? Dammit...and right when I was considering purchasing a SCAR 17 within the next year or so once I leave this idiotic policied hellhole of a rock Oahu...

What state are you in? You can't buy this in all states.

Find a local shooting range, pay for some training.

Sportsman's Guide is nice because you can use 4-pay if you are a member. Also B-frugal can net you some additional CB.

4 pay is great but I swear don't ever try to use someone else's credit card on your account. This used to work fine but they made a change in the system and now if you do so your account will be all screwed up to the point you don't have buyer club anymore and can't see your orders. Someone needs to be taken out back and beat for it.

Not true. This gun is illegal in NY, but you can use other firearms.

SG sucks. You pay for a membership? And their discount "codes" are one time use, and never change. Still, I'll +1 for a gun deal.
