Gentlemen,

I have a like new Bushmaster AR-15 (16-inch pencil barrel, regular front sight, flat top with A-2 peeps carry handle, and collapsible stock) with a TA01 4x32 Trijicon ACOG (Red Crosshair Full Illumination). What do you think this is worth on the open market? Any opinions are vaulable. I am debating a FTF offering in the Houston area.

You got to find someone looking for that exact set up to get out of it what your looking for. You might be better off taking the ACOG off and selling them separate.

Well the NEW ACOGs go for about $1,000 and right now ARs are $800-$1,200.

So I would guess $2k (maybe a little less) if you knew the right person.

And as Darthbauer suggested parting might return more money.

You could always put it on Gunbroker.com and let the insanity begin. The sky is the limit over there.

Gentlemen,

Thanks for the input and perspective. I think I may just take a chance first in the forum for a FTF. If not, Gunbroker is certainly an option.

Yeah that sounds about right, AR's are going for about 1900, tell me where to send the 100 for the ACOG:neener::neener:

Send me the ACOG for $600 and take your chances on the AR?

Model,

I will think about it. I am talking to a couple of others as well. Would you go $700?

Model,

Did you change your mind or did I run you off?

Howdy Swamper,

I'd be interested. Which model and magnification is your ACOG?

Thanks, anteken

It is the Model TA01: 4x32 Trijicon ACOGŪ with Red Crosshair Full Illumination. For more information, including specs, visit their site at http://www.trijicon.com/user/parts/products1.cfm?partid=139

Also, this model attaches to the carry handle.

Dang Swamper,

You had me up until the carry handle. I need one for a flattop. Ah well, I'm sure you won't have any trouble selling it.

Rats,

Anteken,

I went the path of the carry handle version, relying on the realities (or, at least, as ALWAYS in my case) of Murphy's law. I figured despite their toughness, I would screw it up and still have plan B available with the twist of a finger screw.

PAshooter,

Thanks for being so neighborly. Seems too many members want to be the self appointed market valuators of whatever another member chooses to sell. If I were to guess, you suffer from gray mustache hair disease like me.

Seems you've got me pegged, Swamper.

Really nice optic, you've got there, BTW. I had the opportunity to fire an experimental 5.56 MG the other day (see attached) that was equipped with one of the 4x32 ACOG models with fiber optic illumination... not sure which model, exactly, but it sure was sweet!

Now I'm having second thoughts about being so neighborly... if the deal with anteken falls through I might be interested. I've got a 16" HB Bushy with an A2 upper that's just crying out for a sight upgrade ;)

As the buyer in said transaction, I concur. Thanks, Swamper... a pleasure to do business with you.

Sweet optic, BTW :D

Best of luck on selling the rifle.
