I have been thinking of selling my GB 14. It is in a regular stock but I also have a butler creek folder for it. I have 3 Ruger 20 round mags and 1 factory 30 rounder. I have more mags but most are gun show specials ,7 or so in total. It is a stainless steel GB. I've been thinking of selling it so I can buy another Garand from CMP. What would this set up sell for? Thanks

SOG has some for sale. Check theirs. Look on auctions also.

It will sell for a lot less now that the ban sunseted.

If you got a penny over $300 for it, I'd be greatly surprised.

Get ready to be surprised. Then again, that probably happens a lot.

Southern Ohio Gun had them for around $690. Don't sell all the mags and folder as a package. I'll bet you could get a premium price for the Ruger factory hi-cap mags.

$400- 450.00 seems to be the going rate.

WeeWee,

Where are you located in NC? At Davi's Guns in Raleigh they have a folding stock version for about $1000 no shit. I saw it a few weeks ago and laughed my ass off. They also had OA-93 preban pistols for about $1800 each.

$300 for a Ruger Mini-14 GB with four factory mags?

Show me where you can get something like that for $300. I'll take two. The GB's by themselves - in used condition - sell for ~$450. Now a non-GB model, those are another story.

Please note I didn't say they're for sale at that price, I meant they wouldn't draw more than that, IMO.
Minis are, shall we say politely, slow sellers on the market. Given that one can buy an AR for not much more than a NIB Mini, why would one buy the Mini? Unless of course one was hellbent on owning said Mini?

Let's let him sell it & then we'll all see what he got for it, providing of course he's truthful with the price. (No slam intended on that!)

Put it this way: if he sells what he posted for anything less than $400, I'd snap it up without any thought, and I already have one Mini-14 GB (which I don't even really like).

It sold for $800 in 4 days. Why would you piss in this guy's thread when you don't know what you are talking about ?.

The non-folder stainless GB in the EE sold for slightly less to someone who just happens to have a factory folding stock with no gun to put it on.

So, everyones happy.

I didn't piss in his thread. I did not say gun was worth less than he was asking, I was stating the obvious at how slow & a low price they sell at gun shows.


when you don't know what you are talking about ?.
I've was working gun shows while you were wearing jammies with footsies in them. Aside from that, this is a public forum where anyone can post their opinion. In addition, I'll match my knowledge up against yours any day of the week & only use half my brain & still win going away. Go back to your sandbox, junior.

Well, everyone except Bob.

The only reason I am thinking of selling it is to buy more Garands from the CMP. The Mini 14 GB is one of the two I am thinking of selling. The other is a Daewoo DR 200. I have been bitten by Garanaites and need to sell one of these so I can buy more. Thanks for all the replys.

Oh, You work at gunshows ?. That explains it. We all know what a fountain of knowledge gun show "workers" are.

Yes, you are free to post your opinion as am I. I would just suggest you wait until you actually know something about the subject.

You said the gun was worth $300. It sold for $800 in four days. If this guy had listened to you he would have been out $500.

Insult me all you want , that won't change the fact that you don't know what you are talking about.
People come to this forum for ACCURATE information.

If I want to listen to un-informed, arrogant opinions, I'll go ask someone that works at a gunshow.

Edited to add,
Sorry, I don't mean to malign all gun show workers, I'm sure there are some very knowledgeable ones out there. Apparently they are just rarer than a $300 Mini-14 GB.

As well as worked the gun shop, bought & sold & shot guns for almost 30 years now as well as served as a machinegunner in the Marines. What are your creds, sir????????

Go back & read it again. I never said what it was worth, I wrote what I thought it would sell for. Huge difference for those who read & write English, sir.


Insult me all you want ,
Insult you? No, I gave back what I got from you.


If I want to listen to un-informed, arrogant opinions, I'll go ask someone that works at a gunshow.
Or talk to yourself.

So you really want to bring reading & writing skills into this too ?. Okay, your English skills appear to be on par with what you know about firearms values.

You want to impress me with your firearms knowledge ?. Find me one online resource where you can buy a stainless steel Mini 14 GB with two stocks and Ruger factory mags for $300.
