just about every ad that I have ever read, it always reads "only 200 rounds fired". there has to be some people that believe that, because the rifle gets sold............so fess up, how many of you actually believe that horseshit? and what is it about the number 200? personally I wouldn't buy a gun from anybody who puts a ad like that in, because it will more then likely turn out to be a shot out peice of shit.

When I sold my old AR in EE I listed it as 400 rounds fired, which if anything is more than I actually fired.

Sorry

I believe it.

Lots of people buy something because the read it was cool on the net.

Use it once, become disinterested and then sell it off.

See it all the time with guns and guitar gear.

Same reason drunks always say " I only drank 2 beers"?

Or they are telling the truth. 200 rounds is about right for one to tell if they like it or not.

I have only 120 rounds through my AR, if I sell the upper, I will say that it if asked. I tried to like the M4 platform / bandwagon. I just didnt like it.

I had (BTBA- Before Tragic Boating Accident) a m38 that I had never fired. Just haven't had time.

It depends...

I am selling a CETME locally with less than 100 rounds through it.

When it comes to uppers, however, I would pretty much triple whatever count they give me unless they honestly say it was just test fired.

from what i see of a alot of gun OWNERS (not shooters)
thats probably about right for the newness to wear off and want to get something else

I've bought and sold a number of guns, and the only way you'll get treated right is by being honest about the number of rounds fired through your weapon. Be honest-expect honesty back.

Worked so far.

One time I had a major AK rifle failure and posted about it on the AK board here. While over at the eevil AK board (I won't mention names) gathering more info about it, I saw they started a thread about it and linked to it here. Some of the major AK (im)posters with the same model suddenly admitted they had less than 300 rds through their AK. They were full of shit with all their firearms expertise, but it took my busted rifle thread to get them to admit it.

So yes, if they are not Arfcom members they can have a gun for five years and only have 200 rds through it. On other gun boards that still makes them an “expert.”

I am so anal retentive I keep a gun log for everyfirearm. Not only can i tell you how many rounds were fired, but on what dates, what ammo brand and type, when the rifle was cleaned, with what cleaning and lubrication products, and what parts have been replaced.

I dont think rounds downrange makes an expert. I know plenty of folks who have countless tens of thousands of rounds down range and are no brighter than the first time shooter.

Holy cow. 200 rounds is an average day at the range for just one firearm.

I've sold many that only about 200 rounds fired. Probably why I sold the thing in the first place.
Link Posted: 8/9/2005 9:04:02 PM EDT
I currenlty have a rifle listed with 500 rounds through it. I can account for all of those rounds based on the number of magazines I fired through it and types of ammunition.

Although I did not do it with that particular rifle, another one I own has a log book, and I would even supply that with the rifle if selling it.

But for me, at least when buying, used is used. I don't care if the guy claims 200 or 2,000 rounds, I just assume it will not be as accurate and that it may need some stuff replaced sooner.
