New $3200. Add $200 if it has the bipod. Used I have seen them around $2600 and up.

I'd suggest that $2600-$2700 is market price for a lightly used AR-50. If it is a private sale, you might get a $100 to $200 premium.

Slug-O Beware of to low of a low ball offer. I just got done selling my bagpipes. Low usage and had about 1200 tied up in them. Some jerk offered 500 bucks when I was asking 800 and noted the value of 1200 if bought new. I blew him off with a reply that he was insulting me with that offer.

It's one thing to haggle, its a totally different thing to come in with an offer that looks like you want him to just hand it over for free. Well at least thats my story and I am sticking to it.

What year was it built and did you personally inspect it?

I originally purchased a barely used AR-50 and when I received it the damn thing was obviously used a lot!!! Plus, I have never heard anyone shooting just 3 rounds.

If the AR-50 is a few years old, offering $2600 and you may be offer more than what the person originally paid.

Market value is what something is worth TODAY. It doesn't matter if the guy paid less for it. Isn't that what we all try to do with our houses??? Buy an appreciating asset low and sell higher?

I personally find it reprehensible to try to stick it to a fellow gun owner just because they are hurting for cash. Give them a fair offer. Don't try to rape a guy. Karma is a bitch. Some of us may be on the receiving end of that one day. Slug-O's offer is a fair one. He's got a couple hundred up he can go if the guy counters.

Right on...Slug-O.
