    good looking stick. lots of quality parts. your best best is to hope that the buyer has similar tastes in after-market parts, and is willing to pay for those that are on the gun. that being said, you might be better off to take a few of those parts off, like the fake can, optics, and sell the gun with a 'cleaner look' to it. then offer the extra parts for sale separately or as a group.

    then again, it is tax-return time, so you might be okay to leave the ad as it is, but ask for 'best offer', but with a minimum that you will accept. that way you leave it up to the buyer to give you a price of what it is worth to them. why are you selling it?

    Well I'm a seasonal snow plow operator and was just laid off... so i may need to sell it. I'm not selling it unless i absolutely have to.
    I thought about taking the can and optics off, but they sort of make the look, i personally like the can (makes the barrel look 6 inches shorter) but yes i guess its up to the buyers personal taste.

    $1,100 if you can find the right buyer that wants that setup.

    Its worth what the parts will sell for on the used market.

    I think the fact that it is displayed on top of a crib answers why you might be thinking of selling it.:)

    Nice looking gun.

    Congrats, and good luck. Maybe one of the only good reasons to sell a gun. Heart is in the right place, you'll get it all and more back later.

    If you get an offer above $1300 Id take it, I think alot of people who buy ARs enjoy the process of setting them up with all the goodies. IMO Mister_E nailed it. Congrats on the baby and have a good one!
