Ar 15 Prices

Recommended Posts

Well, with the price and availability of AR 15's and ammo, I'm thinking it might be time to sell mine.

 

I have a Stag model 2T with Leupold Mark IV x-high rings and a Vortex 3x32 scope. Magpul foregrip, magpul trigger guard and magpul stock. I have 12 Magpul P-Mags and 800 rounds of ammo. I have 40 rounds of tracer ammo and a real nice soft side case.

 

What do you guys think a fair asking price is for everything?

 

I have a few people interested, but I am afraid to throw a price out there. From what I have seen on the net, I think $3,000 isn't too far out of touch with reality. Most ammo is about $1 per round right now and AR's are out of this world, if you can even find one.

 

So, what say you? Does my price sound about right? I haven't told them a price yet, just said that I am probably going to sell.

Depends on where you sell it. I'd put it at around 2300 for everything but you could probably get more on gunbroker.

It's so volatile right now that I think it winds up being a real wild guess.  

 

The President's announcement last week rightly punted some of the more troublesome gun control measures back to Congress (where it belongs) while allowing him to posture that he's really serious.  If some level or party solidarity is maintained, it's not likely that many of the restrictions people are talking about will make it out of the House.  In that case, things will return to something resembling 'normal' in a couple months.  Prices seem to have moderated just a little since his address last week adding some weight to this view.

 

On the other hand, the states are still free to do whatever they want... And NY seems to have started a "We can have stricter gun control than you" war among the various governors.  Add the continuing publicity around "AR15-style weapons" (whatever that means) being used in crime and anything could happen.

 

If you have a rifle to unload, I would unload it now simply because no one knows what tomorrow will bring.

 

For the gun you listed, I would say a final price between $2-3k seems reasonable in the market.  Again, with the volatility, it's impossible to really set where in that range to aim.

Stag 2t -$1100 new

Mark 4 rings- $120

Vortex scope- $ not familiar with it, maybe $350?

Grip, trigger guard and stock - couple hundred

pmags- $13 each

840 rnds- ~ $300

Case $65

 

Seems you have just over $2000 in it.  Without knowing the condition of the gun, I wouldn't pay more than $1500.  But I have all the ar stuff I need.  You might be able to find someone in a panic willing to pay more than new retail. JMO

This actually sounds about right. If you really want to make as much money as possible, sell the ammo, mags, and accessories separate.

I am gonna agree here.  I just bought a Colt LE model with a very similar setup for $1250 last week.  It is all what the general public would pay.  I got a great deal from a LEO friend who was selling based on his price.

You wont find any AR for $1100 right now and all the 223 ammo online is about $1 per round.

 

 

Maybe not in your area, but they're routinely showing up in this area for ~$1100-$1200, and some of the retailers (like Walmart) have had new ones trickling in slowly. The price is already starting to come back down from what it was last week, and the ads listing rifles for $1500+ are being bumped repeatedly by sellers still looking for a sucker...but it's just not happening.

 

I'd strongly advise anyone interested in an AR to wait a few months for the market to stabilize. The panic buyer are snatching up everything they can get their hands on at ridiculous prices, and they're most likely going to take a beating on this stuff when the AWB scare subsides.

If your looking to sell now is the time. You may get 1 or 2 hundred more dollars in a few months. However once all this subsides the price is going to bottom out again. The gun market as far as "black guns", ARs, and what not is very cyclical. It hits highs and lows just like the stock market does. Once panic sets in is the time to sell. As soon as it subsides the prices bottom out. If it makes you feel more secure wait a month and see what prices do. However, the longer you wait the more likely the prices will drop. If you can sell it now for 3000 you should jump on that and never look back.

How long do you see Noveske staying open? Could end up being quite collectible I guess. Weird circumstances surrounding his death.

I went to the Lakeland gun show Sunday and saw many AR's for sale for $1600, gun only.  I did not see any selling but they were everywhere.

I don't see Noveske shutting down anytime soon. Gun show prices are out of control, but you can still find normal pricing if you're willing to build a rifle yourself and have some patience.

Just a reminder: 

 

You can direct someone to a dealer if you have no affiliation and/or exchange PMs

and e-mail, but you CANNOT offer to buy or sell firearms or ammunition on the Forum.

i have seen most ARs going about $150-$300 over normal price. Most are in the $1,800 range. It seems ammo is the thing that is priced out of control. I was at a gun show today and .223 ammo was going for $1 a round. Before all of this happened, i was paying $5 for 20 rounds of cheap 7.62 ammo for my AK. At the gun show i paid $6. So AK rounds are still reasonable if you can find them. Even bulk boxes of .22s for going for $50, where before they were $25. Helping the economy, thats for sure.

I don't know if this will help, but a local dealer is selling some Noveske lowers...

A dealer is going to bend you over by about 60%. Going to a dealer might be a good idea. He will say, "These guns might get banned soon, I'm not sure I want it" yada yada.

 

I would suggest to get rid of it soon if you aren't scared to death you will need it. The market is perfect right now. Sell it while everyone is scared, that's what gun shops are doing.
