    And that's not even a Magpul China Doll lower. Those fetch closer to $4-5k.

    Crazy, I wouldn't pay $100 for it, if I had to build a rifle with it and keep it forever.

    Your Colt probably won't ever have the magpul logo on the side of the receiver ;) That's probably about it.

    That's a big one! In the couple of articles I read about them there was no mention of them being high precision or superior engineering. Is that right?

    Just like anything else wait long enough if it's rare it will be expensive.

    Look at Atari's ET game.
    Was a throw away flop, until it became rare and old

    I don't know. That's about what people thought there Lowers, and AR's were worth last election. :s0149:

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and those (and especially the china doll ones) are the collectors items of the modern gun world. Nope, I wouldn't buy one (I would if I was a billionaire), but I would buy one of these before I bought a Colt 1911 for the same price. Why? Because I would get this, and I would shoot the **** out of it, and it would be awesome :)

    That statement is like saying, 'What will an original colt 1911 do that my new Kimber/Springfield/Nighthawk won't?' Absolutely nothing... But it would still be cool to have. After running a full auto Thompson, they are terrible to shoot! But I'd love to have one :)

    Doesn't matter if a homoerotic horse is your cup of tea, but that right there is a legitimate unicorn sighting :)
