We all have at least one firearms dealer that has the best of the best and it's priced that way. Well I stopped by mine the other day just to say hi. Well I got looking around and found a nice looking M4 in a showcase without a price tag. Well I just had to have a look. It was so new looking that I had to rub the parkerizing on the throat of the scabbard to read M8A1. Well I asked for a price and after talking to his wife them decided it must be a reproduction so they charged me $35 for it. I walked away will a NOS Utica, with the dimple on the butt cap. The barrel ring had no marks of having ever been attached to a rifle and the belts hooks don't have a scratch on them either. Just felt great to get over even if just once.
