I just purchased a PWA Pre-Ban. I am trying to decide if I should keep it or not.
The following Is stamped on the Lower: PWA; Milan,IL; Cal. 5.56; COMMANDO; serial# 0005xxx, and 5.56 is stamped on the barrel. It has only had 30 rounds fired through it. It looks brand new. It has a telescoping stock, a bayonet lug, and a SureFire Handguard.
Can anyone tell me what it is worth? What should I ask for it if I decide to sell it?
What Battery does the SureFire take? Who sells the SureFire? It looks cool it has a heavy duty flash light and It looks like it might have a laser sight in it as well. I will try it out when I find out what battery it takes. The rifle has never had a battery in it.

Thanks! Any advice is appreciated!

Or sell it to me - I'd say $700 is fair.... just kidding! The rifle, minus the Surefire, is probably worth about $1000 - $1200, and the Surefire adds to that an amount that depends on what model it is. The light takes DL123 lithium batteries, again, how many depends on what model. I'd keep it! PWA lowers are among the best, although they are out of business. That doesn't matter much though since AR parts are interchangeable. The lower receiver is the valuable part of your rifle.

Keep It!They aren't making any more prebans.I've got a Preban PWA Commando and love it. I picked it up at the local pawn shop 2 mths ago for $500.(That's right--complete rifle for $500-there is a God in Heaven)
$1000 is about right,not counting the SureFire, if it's in great shape.
