I'm looking for an uncensored answer, what price do you think someone would pay for one *today*?

(I'm trying to buy something else, and need to know if I'm being realistic on raising the money I need).
Edit - Added question mark to thread title.

That's easily a $700-$750 rifle, but with things the way they are today and in short supply(and not knowing how to build), you might even try for the $850 price as it has the 20" barrel setup that some folks like better over the 16" barrel, considering the prices I saw(don't know if they got) at the gun show this past Saturday in Harrisonville.

The sellers had prices of $400 for stripped upper/lower combos. Completed upper assy's were priced at $500-$700, with completed lowers at $350 and more.

I was there looking for a simple break-open 410 shotgun, but I wasn't gonna pay $200 for a old no name model that was re-painted in rattle can gloss black enamel.

I did pickup a couple magazines. One being a 9mm 32rd extended for my S&W SD9VE for some plinking fun, and a 50rd drum for one of my AR15's.

Even all AR15 parts were in short supply at this gunshow. No LPK's, no stocks/forearms, not even slings. A few buffer tube amperdexirous sling mounts and some AR15 folding stock mount systems, but not for $190.

Cheapest 22LR I saw was a Rossi Gallery at $200. And, don't get me started on the prices of ammos. That shit was selling at gold coin prices.

Thank you.  

I missed out on a deal today, on a gun selling for about $800 off normal price, so I'm hoping to get this sold and not have that happen again.

I'd tack on another $100 or so. Old Bushmaster, not Remmaster. Some collectors value right there.

I used to have one just like that and I wish I wouldn't have gotten rid of it. The only reason I did was because, as most of the Bushmaster rifles went, it was a 1 in 9" twist. It did however stabilize the 68/69 grain bullets decently and I could hit 600 yard high power targets with no problem.
  Nonetheless...that's a nice rifle!

Thank you.

I have it listed on another forum, but got no interest. Maybe I'll try the EE; I hadn't done that, because I want FTF.

Listed it. We'll see how it goes.

It's a neutered one? No bayonet lug, flash hider etc.

Yes, it was made during the Clinton ban years.

I got $750 for my Bushmaster, and along with a few hundred dollars from other things I sold, I used the money to buy a Colt Diamondback. I've wanted one since the 70s, but when they quit making them the price jumped and I never bought one. Now I'm just waiting for it to be shipped.

4" blue Diamondback .22lr  (I really wanted a 6", which is the one I mentioned above, but this is the same length as my Blackhawk so it's something I'm used to).
