Sweet...but not $4,075.00 sweet.....
blah. I like to be able to use my guns.
Don't get me wrong: I agree, and I'd never buy this, even if I had the bucks. But I am always impressed by the lengths to which human ingenuity and effort will go.
Do I want it? No.
Am I glad that someone built it? Yep!
If I was an upper class citizen, I'd buy it for its collectability....
It'll probably be worth 5 times that in a few years.
Nice rifle. Hard to imagine that Ruger has made FIVE MILLION of them. That's a WHOLE lot of 22 cartridges downrange.
I have never had an ever for bling on guns so to me its worth less than a good field grade 10/22.
Here is something to think about, it you are not convinced of how much 5million really is... IF every person who bought a Ruger 10/22 shot only ONE 50 round box through it since it was first made, AND DIDNT EVER FIRE IT AGAIN.
That would be 250,000,000 bullets downrange.
at 30 - 60 gr per bullet... that's 7,500,000,000 - 15,000,000,000 gr of lead...
that's um... stares into space...
7500000000 grains = 485992500 grams...
485992500 grams = 1071430.059 lbs...
1071430.059 lbs = 485.992 Tons of lead...
That's if they all only shot ONE box, and shooting small 30 grain bullets!
It can easily be between 485.995 - 971.99 Tons... given the 30-60gr bullet
485.995 - 971.99 TONS OF LEAD ACROSS AMERICA FROM THIS ONE MODEL RIFLE!
You know it's actually way more than that, who only puts 50 rounds through a .22?
Apparently, 43 bids indicate someone wants it pretty badly.
yeah and if noone else noticed it still has 27 days to go i bet it sells for a lot more then its at now.
Last I saw it, 4,275.00 Atleast profits are going to a good cause.
Nice, but I would never pay anything close to that for a gun.
