My local gunshop has one NIB in a Barret Case, plus 200+ rds of ball LC 80 production ammo. They are asking 6400.00 for it. Is this a good deal?

Not bad. Not smoking, but not bad.

does it have rings and a scope?

No rings, no scope to my knowledge.

That's acyually quite good. 82's are $6800-$7200 most places with no case and no ammo. You have a good deal on your hands as long as it's NIB. Used is more the sound at that price.

WTF? According to Barrett's website that is how the M82A1 'comes' and according to one of the demo videos it comes in the box disassembled. Do most retailers not include the box?

Thats decent, if I saw it and had the money in hand Id probaly get it.

M82s are nice.

Member StyerAUG has proposed a group buy on Barrett 50BMG rifles before the end of the year. From what I read on the thread it will incluse any model Barrett available at the time. Might want to wait a bit and see if this comes to pass and what the prices are. No prices unannounced so far. I hope to be able to scrape up enough cash for a M99 single-shot, the M82 would definintely be good for lots of grins!

I got a NIB gun in case, rings and factory mounted scope for $6800. That was a while a year ago. I was able to hook up 2 other members at a similar price though some contacts. I can ask around if your interested.

Well, there is some historical significance to what he has, but, I think it is probably 10-15K over market value.

Point taken. Though some rich idiot will probably buy it anyway.

Nearly every one of the old USMC rifles are in private hands now. They were trade ins towrds new rifles.
If he is the FFL holder that bought it, he didn't give any where near that price.

My friend has one of these that he traded for a couple years ago. He valued the traded items at about $5,000. So you are right, these don't have a "cost basis" anywhere near this. Then again, this guy may not be seriously trying to sell it. Put a ridiculous price on it, and if some PT Barnum sucker comes along and wants to buy it, why not? Buy 3 more and have money left over for ammo....
