    After the debacle with Dick's Sporting Goods after Sandy Hook, I'm glad to see these back in the retail channel:

    TROY DEFENSE .223/5.56 Carbine

    The Troy upgrades alone are about $630 (rear folding BattleSight, Medieval flash hider, Alpha rail w/ integral folding front sight, Battle Ax grip, enhanced trigger guard, Battle Ax stock, low profile gas block).

    These were for sale at Dick's on Black Friday for $800. My friend bought one and I sighted it in for him. The upper and lower had a ton of slop between them, there was actually an audible rattle from it if you shook the gun. Their stock supposedly is stronger than most, but its bulky and harder to adjust. The only real advantage of this gun over a typical budget AR is the nicer free float rail with BUIS.

    Definitely a good deal for $800, but a ripoff at $1600, even in today's market.

    I checked these out at Dick's on Black Friday - would have passed on it even at $800. Without fail though they pop up in the classifieds for $1500+
