"Sure I'll sell it to you for $500! While we're at it...why don't come over to my house and f*ck my sister!"

Some people really should not own guns....or maybe I should say...they should be restricted to owning pimped out SKS's.

Ask him for a signed letter from his local law enfocement agency stating that he is of legal age to purchase the rifle, then you will consider his price.

I truly feel bad for good dealers like you who have to put up with stupid people.

I also feel bad for people that have to put up with stupid dealers. Maybe we could get the stupid people to only shop with the stupid dealers.

Ask him if he wants you to just send $500 worth of rifle and he can get the rest elsewhere.

Instead of taking a $500 loss on it just go out an buy a new barrel for about $150 or less. You can get a folding stock for way less than $100. Why give this sonofabitch a $250 profit? You can even wait to do it. In the meantime you still have a good functional weapon. Take your time on the conversion if you want. You now have a "grandfathered" receiver.

Steyr,

It doesn't matter if the pre-ban configuration is available for the same price. The fact is he has to convert it.

As such, the only place you will be expected to sell that rifle for the price you're asking is in a state where it's still the only option. Anywhere else, you'll have to sell it for less.

That said, I make no comment whatsoever on your chosen price, since I already have my pre-ban and I've not looked at prices for awhile. His request for $500 seems a bit low seeing as the sunset rifles aren't even out yet, and their demand will be high enough in the near term that the prices will stay high for a while.

...and to think I got my Colt lightly used in 1993 for $550...

You likely will need to take some loss on it, because it is in clinton config and therefore worth less than a standard feature rifle (unless you can find a dumb buyer). $500 off seems a little steep, but I think it is most likely worth $100-200 less than a standard rifle.

Sorry-didn't see you offered to convert for the same price

You can get one for a little more than that if you buy the receiver and parts, and do the work
yourself. But not from a manufacturer, or not one that I've seen.

Well hell man, I'll gave ya 625 for it. How bout that?

That's right...depending on what you want on it you can come close to $500...and definately stay under $700 if you roll your own...

Any more responses from this buyer wanting to "do you a favor" by taking your old "postban" config AR off your hands for $500?

Dealers will probably just mark the NO BANS up $100.00 and make the post bans they got stuck with look more attractive.

I don't see why it would be worth less. Some people will want effective muzzle brakes instead of flash hiders, some won't want either. I think the people are used to brakes and it'll be treated as just one option possible. Not everyone needs/wants the most technically correct military look-alike. Probably the flash hider will be the most common, but that won't eliminate sales without hiders.

My 2 cents

$625.50!!!!!!!!

Actually, I'd think that EVERYONE would want a threaded barrel so they have the CHOICE to use a muzzle brake, flash suppressor, sound suppressor or nothing.

Dealer can price his wares however he wants. Buyer can offer whatever he wants. it's capitalism.

I suspect dealers will find rifles with permanantly attached muzzle breaks/blast enhancers difficult to sell, and will have to lower prices eventually to move the old inventory.
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 9:07:50 AM EST
Steyr --

I can see you are in a pickle here. But being the prince of a man that I am, I am willing to help you out. So just send the rifle to me, and the whole problem will go away.....

I know it is a huge favor, but I don't mind doing it. That's the kind of guy I am.

You're probably right, but I still see some people who will buy the Clinton-config. Actually to prove you right in my case, how tough is it to remove a soldered muzzle brake?

Ah! Well, that changes everything.

If you made that clear to the guy, then you're right. He's an idiot.

Agree to the deal and remove the "offensive" post-ban features (i.e. the entire upper receiver). Then he can spend the $495 he saved for the "conversion."

Guy wasn't actually interested in a preban config rifle. All he wanted to do was convince dealers their postbans were worthless now and buy them at 1/2 price.

Just an asshole and I'd prefer not to do business with his kind for any amount of money.



Ask him if he is a member here.
