I may part with a FN barrel I have had for 10-15 years. I have no idea what it is worth. The Bushmaster Gov type barrel is $195, the Colt from SAW want $395 for their "BARREL & FRONT SIGHT ASSY M16A1, 1/12 LWT - 20in CHROME LINED"
What is my FN worth?
Thank You

The FN barrel you have is an A1 barrel and doesn't compare to the barrels you have listed, as they are A2/A4 barrels with different profiles and twists.

If your barrel is new and you find the right buyer, you might get $150-200 for it, but I'd bet closer to $150. If it's used, deduct whatever you think is necessary.

Fulton Armory used to sell A1 barrels, but I don't see them on the site anymore.

I bought a new FN USGI 1/7 20" bbl for $155 off the EE here about a year ago.

Thank You "Very Much" for the replies. I wanted to build up a rifle with this barrel but I hesitated because I thought this FN barrel may be a collectors item or worth a premium.
I am going to go ahead and build up a rifle with this barrel and see how it shoots!!
Again, Thanks for the replies.

I got one NIW from a local guy when I was doing a A1 clone, and it LOVES 55gr American Eagle.
