Well, we'll soon find out. My buddy and I just ponied up for a few of the "bargain bin" CMMG M-4s. The price? $599.99 for the rifle, $25 to have it hand picked, $24 to have it shipped. I'll wind up spending about $28 more for a rear sight and $7.99/ea for mags, but for what will wind up being a <$700 M4, well, you just can't beat that with a stick.

Also, the online reviews of last year's "scratch and dent" batch were sterling. They might not win any beauty contests, but they shoot straight and true without any fuss, so it looks pretty legit.

Review, of course, will be posted once it's in my hands and spewing copper coated lead down range.

Sounds like a steal.

Beaters are always good. You can re finish if you want the new new look. Hell my friend Calguards his 870 and his Ed Brown 1911 every month or so.

Can't wait to see how it looks. Range report is a must.

That is an amazing price.  They look good -- flat top, quality lowers.  Let us know how it goes.

I've seen some people talking about these, apparently they're good shooters, they just won't win any beauty contests.

I'm thinking I'll just grab some sandpaper, a couple spray cans of krylon, and a little masking tape and go to town. I mean.... It can't be any harder than painting a '98 can it?

It still is for wimps, but the wife needs something to use when the Chinese invade.....

As Shorty says, I've caught BRD, Black Rifle Disease. My personal thinking is that one of these days, I'll trade in all of my "cheap" rifles and get an expensive one that I'll be happy with for some time.

BRD is very dangerous. Its something I'm afraid the politicians may try to find a cure for. The worst part is its contagious. My friend caught it from me. Currently my BRD has turned tan

And the funny thing is, I only ever go to the train station there.  I can't imagine what the rest of the city must be like. Confused

The picture makes me somewhat envious.  The fact that you keep posting it isn't making the feeling go away, either.
