Seems a bit too elaborate to be a hoax. Interested to see if the intermediate gas system is the Noveske, KAC, or perhaps based off the BRT. I am assuming that pricing is for LE only.

I guess it will be on display at SHOT. A little pre-show print hype.

I imagine the price is a misprint. The sum of the parts is way over $750 even with no excise tax. I betcha it's $1750.

I assume this was an accidental slip, as there are pictures of the physical magazine with the article floating around.

The article specifically talks about the price point, that Geissele was trying to cram as much as possible into the 750 USD bracket in order to support LE, which would explain the use of the ALG handguards and triggers.

If it's even the department price, I'd buy several at that cost this week. I have several upcoming hires to outfit, and I can't outfit and equivalent Colt for that cost. I'm more likely to trust the Geissele name than most other gun makers.

The Geiselle ARs that I have handled (different configuration than the one advertised) were very high quality and shot very nicely.  They were T&Eed extensively and performed flawlessly.  I cannot remember the government price point but it was substantially higher than $750.

¿Si no nosotros, que quien?

I sent them a message concerning the "rumor" just to see if I received an answer, the first reply basically said more info coming at Shot, I replied as an LEO saying if true, it would be nice, their reply to that was "You know we take care of LEOs, more info coming soon!".

Geissele is just that good to LE.  To say that they are good to us that are blessed to work in the area is an enormous understatement.  Another good reason for the ALG stuff is because it’s “owned” by his wife... and is across the street from Geissele.

I know a guy who finger fucked one. This gun rivals the DDM4V-series.... for $750.   This gun is a steal.

Been meaning to tag onto your statement.

I contacted the guy at Geissele that works on our guns and he too told me that Shot would be the roll out and then he’d get the guy in charge of the program in contact after Shot to get the deets on purchasing.

Full disclosure:  I’m going to use my proximity and relationship to get as close to the front of the line as I can.

Saw it last night on their livestream, looks great. Their new sights looks awesome too, not adjustable without tools the way buis should be. Also looking forward to their green and brown anodized full rifles. If only they went with a full ambi lower like kac 

Also, forgot to mention:

I already floated the “payroll deduction” payment method to the guy like Daniel Defense used to (maybe still does?). I’ll see if that’s a possibility and report back after I talk to the guy.

I really want to get my dick-beaters on one.

Currently... I believe so.

Honestly, I’ve never had a problem running a 16” gun in shitty postage stamp sized apartments. 

There’s several guys at my PD that are all in on getting one. I’m going to pitch the payroll deduction option to them when I talk to them in the next week or two.

Agreed... i have a 16 inch BCM/M&P parts gun that may get replaced with this. Sure an inch shorter would be nice, but having experienced the joys of CQB with a full sized M249... i will live.

Not so much justifying shorter (or longer) guns, but that they already have the parts on hand for the civvy models of the same gun. Just odd that they only offer the one config for the police.

750 is a steal. I recently looked at some “rack grade” m4 style guns to buy a few of and the best deals out there were fn tacticals from the outlet store in S.C. for 830 and 6920 troopers for just under 800. 

The gas system and sights on the geissele seem to make it a better deal.

I really don’t need another rifle but this looks like a hell of a deal given the outstanding quality of  Geissele’s other gear. I wonder if they’d do one with a green line on it for me?

Update:

Comms could be better.

Initial email from the LE support dude CC’ed the email of the guy running the program. After an answer in the initial group email, the first email from myself and another one of my guys has gone unanswered.

We have cops with cash in hand and are close enough that I even said we could come pick them up.

Also, I did pitch the payroll deduction idea ala Daniel Defense.

I will give leeway as Geissele has been so far beyond good to LE and more specifically my PD and my SWAT team that I cannot quantify how Bro As Fuck they are.  I’m also quite sure they’re getting swamped with requests about these guns.

Will update when more info becomes available.
