Is Glen Eberle Nuts???

So Eberlestock just released their new rifle chassis system.

Eberlestock M11 Stealth Rifle Chassis

It's an aluminum chassis for rem 700 actions that folds and uses AI mags. It's been on their sight for months with just a "coming soon" tag. It looks awesome, and I've been drooling for it to come out. The only thing I dont get is that it's $1,900!!!!

SERIOUSLY???? $1,900????

An XLR is like $800 and a McRee's is $745 shipped, with a mag.

A damn AI is like $1,100, It just seems like way more $$$ than it should be.

Does this seem a little expensive for what it is, or am I just being a little girl about the high price?

It looks like a pteradactyl died and was resurrected as a rifle.

The reason it may be worth $1900 is that is may be every friggin bit as accurate as an out-of-the-box CZ 550 with HS Precision stock.

In my personal opinion, price gouging has become "normal retail practice", sadly. 1900 is WAY HIGH in my mind. I MIGHT pay 1900 if it rearranged itself like a Transformer and cleaned itself after every range session.

I have rifles that cost 1/2 that , and took 6x6 bulls and 200" muleys. That is nuts, I thought Lonewolf was pricey @ less than 1/2 that

Man, I could run down the road to Nosler, & walk away with a nice Nosler Custom Rifle for that price with a sub MOA guarantee!
No way id pay that for just a stock!

Hmmmm, me thinks each of these stocks is made 'one off' by an elderly craftsman from a foreign country, using only a round and square file and some sand paper. The secret is in how he threads.

I suppose also that the price will come down, due to the nature of manufacturing, after some one buys the first one.

If they'd dump the mag and fit it to a Bat M I could be tempted. even at that starting price with a little dickerin'.
