50 rifles plus the necessaries accessories. Extra magazines, spare parts, additional sighting systems. Don't forget ammo & training. If they bought 50 rifles with the necessary spares, ammo & training for $100K they did OK.
Remember since hussein got elected,,,,prices have gone up just "a little bit" on AR's,,,,also, since they are backordered at most of the better companies, a premium was probably paid for these,,,,if you can find a Colt, Bushmaster, DPMS or other really good one,,,,buy what you can as you may not get another chance!!!!!!!!!!!
As long as one (or many) is willing to pay the high price $$$$ for them the price is going to stay high. These guns are hyped up and the manufacturers are taking advantage of you and I. The manufacturers could care less who's in office. More of a win win situation for them every election that come around. You would think the dollars would come down with the production on the way up. It's cheaper to build in numbers, quality can't be an issue, their casted parts and blow molded plastic short of the barrel.
