    Damn, that looks like a hell of a design. Using a lot of standard AR parts, with some proprietary innovations, that's a badass rifle. I might have to consider this, if it's still legal in a few years :rolleyes:

    :cool: I'd seriously consider picking that up if it was reasonably priced whenever it comes out.

    Depends how soon they get it out and how soon there is another ban, but they are planning on producing them for civilians.

    Rich (owner of Magpul) told us that if there was any way he can get it on the civilian market he will.

    Dawt.

    Especially if they make in .308 or 7.62x51. But I guess that guarantees it not being reasonably-priced, eh?

    Guys, it was DESIGNED for the civilian market. IF it comes out, that's where it will go. This rifle was thought up as a "Because we can" idea. It is not intended to compete for any military contracts at this point.

    Was there a price point?
    The video pretty much has me sold. I will buy one when they are released.

    The Masada will be priced competitively with AR-style rifles, if Magpul ends up making it, and if it turns out how they want. There is another rifle in the works that IS the result of trying to get a contract. It wasn't on display at the show, and I know nothing about it.

    So we could be seeing some of these for $600-1,500?


    They should sell them for $4-500, I bet they couldn't produce enough to keep up with demand
