Gun store around here yesterday has a new Bushmaster they are asking $850 for...it only comes with two 10 round magazines...so, based off that, I would say you had a good deal...of course, I haven't really researched Bushies.

For what it's worth, I always take a gander over on www.gunbroker.com to just kind of get an idea of what certain guns are going for. Some people over there are very full of themselves(and their product) but it is a good place to start.

It seems like a pretty good deal if the mags are USGI. If they are aftermarket steel mags, it is less of a deal.

11 used Usgi mags @ $15 each = 165
100 rounds random 5.56 = $10 (more for good ammo)
Used soft case = $15 (unless it's a nice one)
Bipod = don't know...I'll assume $25

So, 865 - 165 - 10 - 15 - 25 = 650 which isn't too bad for a barely used Bushy.

What configuration is it? This would also make a difference to how good a deal you are looking at.

Hope that helps.
