    I know they are being phased out, but I saw one advertised for sale. What is their value? I'm talking real value - not some pumped up GSA or special LEO price.

    Thanks

    Depends on the Size and equipment - a basic vest and inserts for xl Inserts on e-bay $100 for vest and about $250 -$300 for point blank inserts (XL size) is the prices I have seen this is not including the level III SAPI plates ( a pair runs about $200).

    But I haven't seen a complete set go up for sale - you also need either DPMS or a proof of ownership - if they ar stolen from a Active duty or a Guard unit - you could lose it and your freedom if you can't provide proof you bought it from someone else.

    a Complete system consist of the:
    OTV Checklist :
    Outer shell (Base Vest)
    Collar and Ballistic inserts
    Groin protector and Ballistic insert
    Back Ballistic panel
    Front right and left Ballistic panels
    Throat panel and Ballistic insert


    Here is a fake ebay from china but shows most of the parts

    Extra are the DAPS
    (2) Detachable ACU Shoulder Protectors
    (2) Detachable Deltoid Protectors

    Here is a real conversion set minus the inserts

    the army price for the new style body armor(IBA) that is being used overseas is at $700.00
    this is without the sapi plates.

    also the army is changing over this year to a new style body armor vest(IOTV).

    as stated above if you happen to purchase a us militry body armor and it is being tracked by law inforcement you will loose it, and the seller will end up in jail.
    jail time for selling us government equipment.
