Wow, you’re right. $1500 is waay too much. Of course, now some knucklehead will want our guns made in China to save money, just like they did with the uniforms.
During WWI we were saddled with a French piece of crap called the Chauchat. Only because Wilson wanted to make our French allies happy.
We already had the BAR, but the War Department was afraid such a superior weapon would fall into German hands and be copied.....

I bought a Bushmaster semi-auto version at Cabela’s two months ago for $1599 RETAIL. And my rifle came with a light, a carrying case and 3 magazines.
