I have to sell some stuff. I see unemployment in near future. I've got a Bushmaster Carbine "preban" (I know no such thing) with an 11.5 in barrel and 4.5" flashider. Along with comes a 20" upper 1:7 and Fullsize stock, w/buffer (no bolt or charging handle for 20") . 20" has Colt barrel and FN reciever. I've got 3-4 30 rd. mags and 2 20's. The gun and all parts are original grey green, not black.. VERY low round count through gun. Do you think $1200 is fair for all or too high/low?

The Bushy AR15 would be worth about $700 since there is no federal AW ban in effect anymore. However, there are still some states that have their own state laws that would make a pre ban a bit more valuable. Had you sold this weapon a year ago you would have gotten twice as much.

As for the second upper with the FN upper reciever and Colt barrel it would be a bit more difficult to guage what value it has due to the limited information. Is is a pre ban, heavy or pencil barrel, civilian or military barrel? There was a discussion a ways back on whether or not FN produced uppers for civilian sales, with the general concensus being, no, none were produced for the civilian market. If it is a true FN with a Colt barrel then it is possible that you have one of the M16 uppers. Those aren't particularily valuable since the round count would be typically very high. A guess on your upper with no bolt /chargin handle would be about $250.

The full size stock isn't particularily valuable these days as well. A new one will run about $55.00. A lot of folks have extra ones around due to the popularity of collapsible stocks. So I'd figure about $30.00.

Depending on your location I could see you getting about $950-$1000 for everything.

Good Shooting

Mags and all $1200 might be fair.
Getting somebody to turn loose of the money in these trying times might be tough.
You should turn it quickly at $900-$1000 don't go any lower.
What you have is worth that.
