I put this gun together 2 years ago. It has less than 100 rounds through it. SI Defense Lower, RRA LPK, Spikes Battle Trigger, Stag 2H upper, Magpul furniture, vertical foregrip and a few accessory rails, Vortex Strikefire red/green dot, with 2 30 rd Black Pmags (Vtac Sling not included in value)

What's it worth right now? What can expect to get from it locally?

Link Posted: 12/12/2013 8:21:20 PM EDT
900-1200
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 8:53:58 PM EDT
thanks! Anyone else have any input?
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 8:54:56 PM EDT
$800
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 8:55:36 PM EDT
If say closer to $900 on that scale/range for sure.

I agree with around $800-900 but start high in case you get lowballed.

Honestly I would offer you something in the $500/$600 range. The market has been flooded with good quality parts for some damned good prices and the only thing I'm really will to pay a fair amount for is top quality stuff that happens to be exactly what I want. That being said I see locally guys selling used PSA rifles for $800/$900 and actually getting it. I wish I was that lucky I'd be building PSA's every damned day.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 9:17:17 PM EDT
True about AR15 parts being flooded right now...I have a practically damned new Black Eotech 553 on the EE which I am VERY surprised hasn't sold already...that is my reasoning for why it is still available. Just a lot out there right now from buyers who didn't know what they wanted, bought a ton of stuff, and began selling what they didn't need/want.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 9:38:09 PM EDT
$700-$800. The Strikefire isn't worth anything,IMO. You would probably be better off selling the optic alone.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 10:15:17 PM EDT
Your idea of worth, and someone else's idea of worth will always differ.

One of my co-workers once told me it's only worth as much as someone is willing to pay.

Having said that, I'd say that most of these guys are around the ball park.....well, according to my idea of worth anyway.

Link Posted: 12/12/2013 10:15:27 PM EDT
What are the barrel and bcg specs? Without those being desirable parts, it's just a standard AR that anyone can build new for $700ish probably. But the good thing is prices are completely subjective to the buyer! Take it to a gun show and you may get a bit more.

In my shop, if somebody walked in with this, I'd put it at trade/buy value for about $850, meaning we'd give you about $400 for it.  If it was taken in on consignment, we'd probably retail it for around $899.99, but we would do this knowing people would be interested in calling you to make offers a lot little lower than that.  On that kind of a consignment sale, depending on what offers you take and how far you'd bend the price, you'd walk away with about $700 or so.

Outside of a retail/gun shop setting, I think you could try to sell it for around $900/$850 with the expectation that your potential buyers would try to haggle it down to closer to $700 or so.  

At the end of the day it is a used gun and a personal build, so anything goes when an unknown source has built the gun -most buyers know they're taking this risk, and it will reflect in the pricing of the gun.  If somebody offered you $800 or higher in cash, I'd probably just go for it without a struggle -I think you'd make out well with that much in the market we're experiencing these days.  There's a lot of risk for buyers when buying "as-is" guns, especially something that was home-built, even if it was done right, and because of this, people will be reluctant to shell it out when they can get a full-warrantied product for the same if not cheaper value.  From a retail standpoint, what you're really doing is attempting to fight the "M&P15 Sports," "Echo316s," and other entry-priced AR15s that carry excellent warranties from established makers.  You have to convince them that your AR is a better buy, even though it doesn't carry the assurance of quality or the warranties the "other guys" offer.  I think you can make a good dollar on it though, good luck!

I'd probably say $550-600 for a frankengun similar to yours. Nothing really stands out your build quite honestly. Right now you can get a factory Colt 6920 or an equivalent factory BCM for around $1000 +/- $100-200 depending on whether or not a sale is going on or if you have access to LE/MIL pricing. I just can't see myself spending $700-900 (if this is what everyone agrees on) on someones parts build when a few hundreds more can get me something with some factory backing.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 10:59:13 PM EDT
I'd say 900$ easy. One question though what's up with the discoloration of the lower? Poor lighting? Or did it come like that?
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 1:15:48 AM EDT
I also say $700 to $800.  The market is simply flooded right now.
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 1:56:53 AM EDT
$700-850. ARs can be built really cheap right now, I just built a similar AR for about $950

I'm wouldn't be willing to pay what I stated.  I could just see other people paying that in this market.
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 3:59:38 AM EDT
I see max $700 to someone with a little experience with AR15s. ~$800-$900 to a first time gun buyer. You might make more parting it out. I know to me the Vortex optic is worthless so I would make an offer minus the optic. You have good quality parts, but again, about $700 would be max in my mind. You would get a lot less from a gun store though.

Frankengun
Gun store = 500-700
Sold by owner through gun store (Consignment) - 700-750 if you want to sell it fast 800-850 if you hold out.
Sold by owner - 800~
Next Panic price - 1500

$1200 in parts?! not a chance in hell in todays market.

Link Posted: 12/13/2013 5:34:47 AM EDT
That is the definition of a home built Franken-AR.  IMO, it's not worth $600.  I can go buy a new 6920 for $900 or many other reputable brands for approximately the same.
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 5:47:51 AM EDT
$550
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 5:58:26 AM EDT
If you really want to sell it put it on a local site or gun broker for $1000. I think eventually you will get it but it won't be a quick sale and you definitely won't get that here.

Good luck getting a Colt with Magpul furniture and $150 worth of RDS for $900










Theres builds made with bottom barrel or unknown parts, and theres builds that are made with quality parts and good execution. Yours appears the latter. If you have a 7075 receiver extension, H buffer and MPI bolt I'd put it in the $900-$1000 range.

You can get a 6920 for $900 and a PA RDS for $100, and I'd much rather have that combo than OP's Frankengun for the money. As a matter of fact, shopping PSA sales you can build one much cheaper. On the generous side I'd say $700 for the OP's gun.

different things for different people. I'm sure someone would value the Vortex and Mapul stuff over the PA RDS and basic M4 furniture.



Sure you could, but it wouldnt be the same quality IMO.

I'd say 600. Nothing on the gun stands out and can build that gun right now for about that. The optic is not worth much at all on the gun.

You could build this same gun minus the magpul furniture for around $650 right now at PSA, using all PSA parts.  That's including the optic.

Not the same quality? Let's see, the PSA uppers on sale at various times have 1/7, 4150 barrels (some FN)  with milspec FA BCG's. The Stag H2 has a 1/9, 4140 barrel with a semi BCG. Pony up for the on-sale LPK's with the ALG trigger negates the value of the Spike's Battle Trigger.

You're right, different things for different people, but in any realistic scenario with today's prices the OP's rifle is not a $900.- $1K piece.

BTW, if you need more proof:

Ok I wasnt aware the 2H was 4140/9 twist barrel. I thought Stag was 4150/7, so I stand corrected on that, and it will take a hit for it. Last time I looked at Stag I thought all their stuff was CMT/milspec stuff.
On PSA I see an upper thats better on sale for $399, with no BCG, so thats another $130...a CH, another $18; we're at $547. So a complete lower, with 7075 extension, H buffer, upgraded trigger and decent quality lower parts can be had for $100? I dont see that listed on their site.

700-800 selling yourself unless you find someone unknowledable willing to pay more.

gun store would only give you 400-600 depending on the store. smaller store would prolly give less.

I wouldn't call that a low end build tho by any means. Just not worth over 800.

I'd say 600 is the tops I'd pay. Too many deals to be had right now to pay more.Saw a NIB Colt 6920 mp-fde for 899 the other day..

But this gun is not new. Its been used. When you can get new for 600 or maybe less. There's so much out there right now its not worth selling an AR right now.

I would pay 400 for it and most likely toss the vortex on one of my shotguns or give it a buddy who would do the same. If somebody offers you 700 for it, jump on it without a second thought. PSA complete rifles can be found for 600-900 all day long. Hell, you can get a complete PTAC for 400-500 these days.

Just hold on to it until the next panic
