my DPMS

I absolutely hate having to even think about this....but I've got Christmas coming up and a bunch of bills that I need to pay off. So here's the question.

What's it worth, as a resale item?

One DPMS AR-15, I believe an A2. Quad rail, foregrip (with mini bipod)
Ten 30 round magazines. A carry bag that will house the gun with all ten mags.

I was thinking about 900 bucks with all the mags.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

post a pic and someone can come up with a better determination for you.

BTW, how many rounds have been fired through it?

Yes, removable carry handle, Picatinny rail underneath it. You shot it, right?

I believe so. I'll make sure when I get off work, and I'll try to get some pics.

That's what I was thinking too, but a guy up here at work was telling me otherwise. Glad someone seconded my thoughts.

In all honesty I would sell the mags separately.

Rifle with 1 or 2 mags - $1000
Mags @$15 per mag - $120 - $135
Quad rail - $100 - $250 dependin on make
Foregrip - $25 - $100 depending on make.

Oh boy, ask yourself a few questions first....

Why did you buy an AR to begin with?

Then will you want to replace it again in the future?

Will you lose money if you sell now and try and replace it in the future?

And lastly..... when will you replace it and will the law allow you to replace it when the time comes?

Personal experience? Did you burn yourself selling one?

I rarely shoot the thing....it has 109 rounds through it, over 80 of which was me letting other people shoot it, and most of that happened this last weekend.

Be prepared to spend some time selling it. Its not gonna happen in less than about a week to two weeks. If you arent in a rush you can save yourself from losing too much money.

I got into a position to help my parents out of a financial situation, but I had to sell my first AR to do so. I had over $1000 in it and sold it plus 500 rounds of ammo for $900. I took a loss of about $400. At that time, it didn't take but a couple of days to get it sold.

I DID manage to build my current AR for about $700, but it doesn't have the nice 4 rail freefloat handguard, the Ergo pistol grip, or the Gear Sector single point sling that the other one had.

From experience, don't sell it if you can keep from it. If nothing else, see if a friend or relative will hold it as collateral while you pay them back over a short period of time.

I hate to see anyone sell a firearm, especially one that may soon be needed!

About 2 months ago yes you may have gotten 1k for it. Now if its not a colt good luck. The market is absolutely terrible. You'd be lucky to see 900-1000 loaded.

No, I'm not speaking from experience. I'd never sell a firearm. I've thought about it, but when I really think about why I got them in the first place, that always stops me.

And sadly I think the chances of needing one every day are on the rise.

I agree, which is why I carry. Anything can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. I just stay as prepared as I can be.
