That batch was gone the same day. Late last year when I was AR shopping the S&W became very popular (good reason) and prices rose to 800+ commonly. Now when they do appear POOF they are gone. I gave up at one point and bought a DPMS for $600 from Bud's - got THAT by the skin of my teeth. I'm happy, it shoots great and is reliable - I'll get into 3 gun in 2012 as I was planning. Here's a pic of the current state of the rifle:I was ignorant enough NOT to purchase an M&P Sport for $549 when my LGS had em on sale. Every morning, I wake up and kick myself.
