Default AR 15 price

What would be a fair price for AR 15, 5.56, 16 in barrel, basic mil spec. Basic Palmetto upper and lower, Magpul lower parts, no sight. 30 rounds shot to check reliability and function. Not trying to get rich or take advantage. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I believe a whole PSA kit with magpul furniture goes for around $600 ish? So somewhere around or below there if youíre looking to be fair

At least $650-700.00 I’ve not seen any AR 15s for $500.00.

Fair doesnt always equal market value.

This is essentially a used gun not brand new off the shelf. So, yes, $500-$600 would be fair. Not heavily moded out and no optics. I would say whatever you paid less a little.

30 rounds is nothing bro for an AR or any other weapon for that matter. And yes “ fair doesn’t equal market value”. Nobody makes anyone buy anything. Do your research and get what you can for it. If it’s a quality weapon it’s worth it. I took some weapons to Collectors firearms and got prices on em. They said if you sell em yourself add $100.00 to $150.00 on it depending on the weapon. Very reputable folks. They actually have a “quote line “ that you send a pic of the weapon and they quote you their price. Then add a hundred bucks to it.

You can literally get on palmetto and order an upper and a lower for less than $600 you can obviously sell it for whatever you want and it might be worth 700 or 800 to someone else but 500-600 would my opinion on it

I have a brand new Del-ton for 700.00 so your price is fair.

palmetto was offering blem complete lower pistols with a sb3 brace in fde for 179.00 the other day which puts one at 550 complete for a basic rig. Prices are coming back down. I think 500 is fair.

with shipping, sales tax, FFL transfer fee... I highly doubt you will come in less than $600 on that setup.

$600 is what I would list it for.

Thereís complete kits (minus lower) for $450 or so. Iíve put together several for friends. I had picked up several Anderson lowers a few years ago at $25 each.

Cheapest complete one you can get from PSA right now is $750. Not saying it is worth that but FYI.

If you do decide on a price and want to sell it - let me know!
