Mcx gen 1, worth keeping?

My buddy has a mcx gen with a spare bolt carrier, 300 blackout barrel and bolt, and the 5.56 bolt/ barrel.

He’s conflicted on either keeping it or trying to sell it.

I say keep it since it will become a collectors item in like 15-20 years.

    They're meme rifles, still kind of neat to be honest.

      They are super cool to shoot, the weight is like nothing

    I guess I'll be the first person who owns a Sig to post here.
    10', 650lbs, picked up the MCX Spear and it's a perfect CCW for me.
    Feels great in my hand and disappears when I carry, even with fairly tight shirts.
    Personally I wouldn't go for a tinier double stack like the normal Rattler PCB or M4 just cause the extra grip doesn't print on me.
    Go fingerfuck some at your LGS if you get the chance.
    Obviously it depends what you want the gun for, but assuming you want a dedicated carry piece the Spear or Patrol would both be solid.

    >collectors item
    Your buddy can make much more lucrative investments over 15-20 years by selling the rifle today.

    he should sell it now before the mcx lt/gen 3 comes out
    the gen 2 virtus is basically a fat bitch they made to address the problems with the gen 1 and the gen 3 goes back to gen 1 weight through some weight saving material removal on the virtus design in the upper receiver and significantly thinner handguards and barrel

      I thought the Gen 3 was the same as the Gen 2 except it can use AR triggers and has a slimmer handguard similar to the one Midwest Industries makes.

    Waiting 15-20 years for a gun to be a collectors item is stupid. It would require you don't shoot the weapon much and keep it good condition, which is antithetical to a modern tactical rifle.

    And it WON'T become a collectors item. The M4A1 will.

    I think it will become a collectors item, that’s because sig just signed a big contract with big brother. If there weapons are successful and they get a 25 year run on the gov, their products should increase in value, and fuds always love first gen everything

      Historically, gun collectors have the most desire for the weapons their grandparents used. Boomers wanted cowboy guns. Gen X wants WW2 guns. Gen Y is into Vietnam and 80s shit. Zoomers are going to want GWOT stuff. Nobody will care about obscure guns like the gen 1 sig outside of mega nerds like Ian.

        People wanted those guns based on TV shows and movies (and now vidya) that were popular when they were growing up.

      Average real estate return is >10% and smart stock investment is >15%.
      Assuming your buddy could sell it today for $2,000 the bet you are trying to convince him of is that he can beat that $8,000-$15,000 worth of compounding investment return within 15 years or $13,000-$32,000 over 20 years.
      I'd wager he'd lose that bet.

    Does he like shooting it? I own one, it's comfy to shoot and .300 blk isn't ridiculously expensive.

    Sell it. I have a safe full of guns I should have sold for the right price. Plus, that gun was used in the Pulse night club mass shooting, so it has some cache

    Keep it
    >Does he not like to shoot it?
    Sell it
    It's that simple. Firearms will never appreciate faster than an index fund over the course of 15-20 years.

      I think firearms probably did get a relative boost over index funds during the global financial crisis, when most funds outright lost value.

        That's true, it's inadvisable to bail from the market in a time like that. If you're unlucky you have to wait it out.
