    "Regular" Valtros go for +/- $5000 when they pop up (which is infrequently).<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Prototype or not this guy is really reaching. <o:p></o:p>

    You would have to be a really hard core collector to pay that kind of price for a prototype.

    An unfired Valtro today goes for $5000-$6000 on average, used are usually $4000-$5000.

    I need a little history lesson. I see this gun was built on a Rock River frame, were all the Valtros? I know it is a prototype, but I was under the impression that Valtros were around and done before RRA (though I am probably mistaken). If that is the case, then how can this be a prototype? Regardless, 15K seems way to steep even given its history.

    it always annoys me when someone is selling something rare and considerably costly and they excuse their pictures by simply saying "im not a photographer."

    That is a lot of cash for a gun...that may increase in price.
