Way wrong price point.
You can't justify the price using the price? Your logic is flawed. Given the component prices, it's reasonable at $1000. Even thought I wouldn't pay MSRP for it, it would cost more than that to build it myself... IF the parts were available, which they aren't. Specifically the bottom metal, the closest thing available is made by Badger Ordnance (only for the Rem 700) and they are almost $350 with one (5 round) mag.

I'd take an ACOG over a scout scope any day!
I'd take an IER ACOG... I have even emailed Trijicon about one, but they never respond The forward mounted scope has other benefits, primarily leaving the action uncovered.

Except that the M14 was taken out of general combat deployment over 50 years ago, and replaced with the AR10 style rifle
What AR10 has been in general combat use for the last 50 years? I agree that it's the superior platform, but they are still fairly new in their development as a combat weapon (In the US at least). This is an entirely baseless opinion, but I would bet that the M14 has seen as much combat use in the last 10 years as the AR10 and variants have.
