I found a lot of information on it but haven't seen one for sale or anyone that owns one. Seems a little odd to me that there are apparently not a lot these things floating around.
I can't even figure out what year this is. I do know that it doesn't have a key, like other MV's. I can't find a data plate, VIN or manufacturers tag without taking panels off of it.

California just surplused a few dozen those on gsaxcess.gov three weeks back. They got snapped up almost instantly by other federal entities. How are you getting a chance of purchasing one without going through a public auction?

I have a connection with an agency that allows me to get stuff like this. I did find a manufacturer sticker, its a 2012 model. I went ahead and bought it. I'll post some more pics later.

You will have fun with it. The trick to polaris with there drive belts is to know when to put it in low range. This will keep from glazing the belt or burning one up. Sometimes I get pretty far from camp by myself so I carry an extra belt, the clutch tool and some side cutters ( wire cutters). The side cutters are for the belts that have wire / rubber belt as if you burn one up you need the wire cutters to remove all the strands that wind up on the clutch. I have not had a problem with water in the belt housing but I do carry tools plus a quarter my pocket. The quarter is my quick and easy way to remove the little red plug from the belt housing and drain out the water if it happens.

Just got the ATV back from the mechanic.
Dropped about $600 on new filters, hoses, belts, etc. She seems to run great. Haven't really tested it out yet but I'm pretty happy with the results. Does anyone know the designed purpose for these particular types of racks? Is the bar up front a type of roll bar? These are pretty sturdy racks. I'm sure they have a particular purpose.
Any help would be appreciated.

Believe the roll bar and rack to protect high dollar equipment. Last time I check the human body was only worth 78 cents of use full chemicals and minerals.

Finding the military accessories is hard. I have the spare tire carriers off a Polaris MRZR which is the side by side version if you want/
