I dunnnnooo. It hardly looks IR ready, and I've heard less than great things about parts support these days.

But that's interesting, last time I'd looked it was being sold as a normal M4A1, when it is clearly a Grizzly as it now states.

I think it looks like it's in really good shape. Too bad the tracks are all metal as you probably can't get away with driving it on the street. If they were rubber you probably could...

If you read the auction info it tells you the tracks are suitable for off road use only and can not be used on paved roads.

Yeah, volunteering at the military museum doing tank restorations, we couldn't drive our metal track tanks on the roads in MN. We could drive the rubber padded vehicles as we did so in parades. I wasn't going to speak for all 50 states as I don't know the laws of tanks for all of them... The museum put rubber track on our E8 specifically so we could drive it in parades.

You can always change sprockets to US type and tracks for rubber padded

Yeah, that would get expensive if you could find a serviceable set of tracks...
