I could've sworn I posted this before here, but I must have forgotten to do it.

If anything could get me into crossbows, this would probably be it, but with that kind of pricetag I won't be tempted any time soon. There is also the obvious question of why you would take a perfectly good AR-15 lower and put a single-shot bolt slinger on top of it.

It looks cool and everything, but I must be missing the point or something. Why would you need a crossbow when you've got an AR-15? Pretty pricey too.

Cracked.com mentioned this in an article about weapons modification couple months back. Looked cool then, now I'm not so sure about it.
