I of course remember seeing them everywhere in France in 07 when I was there.It's millenials with disposable income. The FAMAS is generally well known because of its appearance in Metal Gear Solid 1.
I honestly have no idea, someone scanned it and posted it to Reddit. I'm guessing it's from a magazine like Guns and Ammo, or was handed out at Shot Show.Thanks so much!! I was hoping that someone had the ad. MAN do I wish that I'd have bought one then!! Can't recall if I every saw any in the day. Do you know when that ad is from - or where?
The same of course could be said for literally any high end collectible of any kind. No doubt that some would have absolutely no interest whatsoever in this rifle. But, one thing is for sure: these rifles command serious money absolutely consistently. Look how aggressive the bidding has been with 5 days left. It's clearly one of the most collectible of all modern firearms. Folks can very rightfully say that they would have 0 interest in something and think that people that pay a certain amount or nuts, but something's by definition worth what you can get for it. These always sell for high prices. Always. And I'm sure they will keep going up.There will always be someone who will pay out the patoot to be the only one on the block with a set of hen's teeth or a pair of chicken lips.
The semi auto FAMAS rifle is nothing special, 'just rare. For what it's worth, so is coprolite.
