Over at www.thefirearmblog.com they have pictures of a 5.56 rifle that Taurus has announced at some foreign trade show. Looks like a ACR/SCAR type rifle. Wondeer if it will be coming to the US market?

Ya, I kinda curious how much will it be. It looks nice, if it's cheap enough I might consider getting one.

My thoughts exactly.

I would think that if it was coming to the States they would have had it at the NRA Show.

Looks cool but we'll see how the quality is.

Eh, after the ACR fiasco, I just can't get excited about the "latest and greatest". I'll be in the market for a rifle later this year, and when I get one it will be an AR.

Knowing the current market, they're going to overprice this to the point where I'm going to forget about it completely. It would have to be sub-$400 for me to consider it.

Man, you've got some tough expectations!

I don't see any sub $400 .223 rifles on the horizon anywhere... Maybe the Kel-Tec? Seriously, I had a WASR-3 and it was so badly made it was dangerous.

$399, but worth $199. Sold it, wildly customized, for $375. :-x

I do have to say that if there was a company that could produce a great sub-$400 tactical rifle, it would be Brazilian. I love those people!

I got my KelTech SU16a for $400. It seams like a good gun so far, but I can also see were corners were cut to keep the price down.

Nobody is going to make a high-end rifle and sell it for $400, when they can sell it for more than twice that. It doesn't matter that it costs them $300 to make it. That just the way things are. supply is going to have to go through the roof for the prices to come down that far.

you also have to realize that the only way we will get a tactical rifle from Brazil is if it was "sportsterized". Can't import EBRs into this country any more. 922r and all that crap.
