No bidders at that price. Very telling. That things been whacked on pretty good too. Still very cool. I saw a Colt SSP go for less than 7000 and it's rarer and was in better shape. I like these kind of collectables.

My memory is not infallible, but I seem to recall that the wear seen was the result of the test program. They were shot hard and the aluminum alloy used was not the equal of what we have today. The project was not pursued due to that and other issues. The FN lightweights came much later.
