    I'm not too familiar with AR's, but I'm looking at what this this guy claims to be a Custom SS AR15 Sniper rifle with a 20” full floating German made barrel. He claims its worth 3k, never seen an AR over about 1200. Just wondering if that's what it's worth, and if not, what it is worth. Has a Leatherwood self adjusting scope on it as well.

    Looks like bead blasted aluminium to me and a Stainless varmint barrel. You could probably build one identical for under $1000 without the scope.

    That magazine must be filled with hundred dollar bills.

    The scope is $400-$500. The rest can be bought relatively easily for ~$800
    If the trigger is something special, it might cost a few hundred more... although, it looks like the stock trigger that comes with any LPK.
    Not sure that i'd trust a no-name "german" barrel on my american gun.

    Also, ask the seller why would he use a free float handguard but then attach a cheap barrel clamp bipod?

    Even if that's a Lothar Walther match barrel, that rifle is still not worth $3000. You can get LW barrels for about $400.00, and nothing else on that rifle looks match grade...except maybe that sweet bipod....

    Give me $3K and I'll build you a nicer AR than that.



    As well as one for me, one of my kids and some ammo as well.....


    Seller is totally FOS.

    That bi-pod made me spill my coffee! For 3K I can build you TWO AR's and much nicer ones to boot. BS on the German barrel and BS on the 3k price tag.

    It's a Mega lower with what looks like a standard LPK and butt stock worth $300+/-, that leaves 2700 for the upper and optics!!!!

    Now, now, be kind. The seller probably paid way too much for it and has come up with a story to justify his error.

    You're probably right. I feel his pain as I have paid to much before. If I keep it long enough I may get my money back, but 3k for an AR????????
