    My buddy is selling a rifle and I need to know what to offer him. Here are the stats:

    -Sabre Defence XR-15 "M5" flat-top with mid-length gas system, m4 stock, 1/9 twist chrome-lined barrel
    -Fixed front sight, flip up rear BUIS
    -Daniel Defense Omega rail
    -EoTech 512 optic
    -Surefire g2 light with mount
    -Polymer vertical foregrip
    -Vickers Combat sling with swivel mount
    -Ergo grip pistol grip
    -Original soft case and 3 mags

    He bought the rifle a couple years ago for target shooting and it has maybe a few hundred rounds through it. It is perfect functionally and almost perfect cosmetically. What would you guys pay?

    Brand new they run around $1500 for the rifle. Offer $1300 for the rifle, and $350 to $375 for the Eotech if you wanted.

    Thanks for the reply. Tipton, I hope you are kidding. I didn't ask about wheeling and dealing at a pawn shop. I'm all for getting a good deal, but if I don't have the money or don't care to pay a fair price, why even insult your friend of all people with a crap offer?

    Yeah, realize a gunshop and even MORE SO a pawn shop would maybe offer him maybe 300-400 for it, the ONLY way to realize full used price/value is to sell it yourself.

    a shop will at MOST offer 1/4 to 1/3 of the price they think they can sell it for.
    NOW, half the going used price is still more than he can hope to sell it to a store for.

    Cabela's will offer 70% of their actual selling price, for rifles that they want.

    I don't think I would offer anything above $1200 for everything Eotech included!
