    I think he's delusional, especially about that sight. It's a good sight but he thinks it's worth $600 used on it's own. I just saw one on Cragslist in Phoenix for $250.

    And no, that package is not worth $1,700, though some dumb schmuck on CL will probably pay that much eventually.

    If it was new and that bad paint job wasn't all over it like a bad suit, it might be worth that much. Seeing how it's used and went through who knows what in the process of losing the dustcover, half of that astronomical price might be an optimistic asking price.

    Or you could get TWO CMT-stamped rifles of just as good real-world quality.

    Oh, and Eotech > Aimpoint.
