    Look what I found at Cabela's

    I saw a XG3S on Gunbroker last week, bid on it but it went for more than $200 over my bid. I decided to search online to see what I could find. I found one at Cabela's in Scarborough, Maine. I called them and asked if they would ship it to my local Cabela's so I could inspect it. They said they would ship it for $25 so I decided to have them send it. It arrived here yesterday and I went to see it today and brought it home with me. It has the HK collapsible stock and came with 4 steel mags. At checkout they only charged me for the rifle ($1450)and state sales tax ($87), no shipping charge and no transfer fee. I think I did alright as the OTD price was $1537.

    Here are pics of the bolt and carrier. The bolt carrier is marked FMP 11/88, the bolt is marked FMP 3/84. The bolt, carrier and locking piece are all electropenciled to match the last three digits of the rifle serial number. Here are some pictures of the bolt, carrier and locking piece. There is too much glare to see the FMP and date marking on the bolt.
