$98k Titanium AR15

Attention rich white guys: this titanium AR15 needs to be part of your collection.  Yes, the majority of this rifle is titanium, and that DOES NOT include the barrel.  I have to admit it looks awfully pretty, it should for about $98k.  Check out the vid:

Hey thanks for clearly pointing out this rifle is wildly impractical.  There is no way I could have arrived to that conlcusion by simply seeing the price tag.  If only the makers of the double barrel 1911 had the same sense of honesty.  Anywho, I feel like with this much titanium they really could have pushed for a better pistol grip; just sayin'...  Here is some info from Nemo, the official maker:

So, I would have assumed some significant weight savings with Titanium, but it weighs almost as much as a stock M-16
