    I have a SAR 1, with less than 500 rounds through it. 46 boxes of ammo, 920 rounds. Most is the FMJ, not bimetal, Wolf ammo. 7 30rd mags, 1 10 and 1 5 rd mag. I have bought a AR and need to liquidate this to buy ammo, scope, and bling it out.

    My guess is that it's worth more than $600 right now. Of course, you might not want to price gouge, still, it's probably worth more than $600.

    I'd say "price gouge" right now or keep it. It's unlikely these will be easy to find to replace anytime soon.

    $700 or maybe even $800.

    Not that I would pay that much...

    you can get 800 on a auction, easy. just put in the right description; dempled mag well, does it have a forged receiver? is it a 1 mm thick receiver? put this stuff in.
    it is not ripping off anyone putting it on an auction, they know what they are getting it for, they are doing the bidding.
    go 20 bucks per mag and 8 bucks per box of ammo, if selling these items seperately. also no ship chgs, and no tax, if out of state.
    if selling all mags together, and ammo as well, go 15 per mag, and 6 per box of ammo.

    Agree on the $800+ with mags and impossible to find 500 rounds. Probably make more if you break it up.

    I'm in PA if you want to do a face to face cash deal. Willing to travel a bit to get it too.

    You may want to consider reloading for the AR, which you will almost certainly need to do if you want to be able to eat and also be able to afford to feed your new rifle.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    I would say $800 is the low range, you more likely would get around $900+ selling it. Going with Gunbroker is definitely the way to get the most $ right now

    $500-600 for the rifle
    $100-140 for the mags (going for about $15-20 each)
    $200 for the 900 rounds Wolf (it will be gone in a heartbeat)

    That's the copper jacket wolf right? If the projectile is non-magnetic it is.

    I know some ranges don't allow steel jacket ammunition and as this is copper jacket (not copper washed steel) it would carry a premium.

    It is the FMJ, not the bimetal. I think I just sold the whole package for $900.

    If you put the ammo on here, I will buy it. Or at least bid for the right to buy. :-/
