    This says it all:

    "This is a consignment gun. We have nothing to do with the price. Please do not ask about a lesser price. We are doing what the customer wants and nothing further need be said."

    I swear I saw one sell a year or two ago in the 5K range, which is somewhat reasonable in comparison.

    The old joke of "if you want to charge double for something paint it black and write police on it" I guess you get to charge even more if you write FBI on it.

    For that price it should say "Full Auto" and be made out of gold.

    Wow! That seems.....exorbitant, at the least. You know the poster thinks the price is silly too with an opening statement like that. Wow. :faint:

    Hey that's pretty cool. I could see that as a good collector's item for FBI buffs.

    Although, you could just save yourself the money and just join the feds, if it'd be that important to you to get your hands on this piece.

    I really wonder what kind of person will buy it.

    I would not give $5K for it, while it would be cool to have I think I will like my civilian Pro just as much

    Some interesting things about this.

    1. The listing has been removed, the link works but the actual sale has been removed.
    2. GA said it was a consignment gun

    3. All 268 of these guns went to the FBI's HRT. The HRT had one of their parked unattended vehicles broken into and all the guns in the trunk were stolen. This happened a couple of years ago.

    Makes you wonder doesn't it? Here's a link:

    I found more (I added the italics):

    Contact: Special Agent Wendy Osborne

    $5,000 Reward Offered in Search for Stolen FBI Weapons and Equipment

    Michael S. Welch, Special Agent in Charge of the Indianapolis Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), announced today that a reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the identification and arrest of individual(s) responsible for the theft of FBI weapons and equipment from a government vehicle parked in a residential neighborhood in northwest Indianapolis, Indiana. This theft took place between the evening hours of September 16, 2009 and the early morning of September 17, 2009. During this same time period and within the general area, an additional 10 vehicles and/or residences were broken into.

    The reward is also being offered for information concerning the location and return of three stolen weapons. The stolen weapons are described as an H & K MP5/10A3 10 mm gun, a Rock River Arms LAR15 rifle, and a Springfield 1911A1 .45 caliber handgun. Additionally, a large green duffel-style gear bag was stolen which contained an FBI SWAT uniform and two sets of body armor, green in color, one set having FBI letters displayed on the front and back.

    The FBI, along with Agents and Officers of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE), the Indiana State Police (ISP), and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), are jointly investigating this matter.

    Anyone with information regarding the above is asked to contact the Indianapolis Office of the FBI at (317) 639-3301.
