    Hey Guys

    Quick question

    I recently got a trade offer...

    Kind of wanted to get a second opinion as there are far more educated people than myself on the subject of AR's, etc.

    I have been offered to trade an Essential Arms lower w/mil spec upper w/20" barrel. AR15-A1.

    The rifle has seen some rounds through it. The lower is worn in pretty good on the finish - which I don't mind. The guy uses it as a target rifle at the moment - or so I have assumed.

    It has the old triangle style handguards.

    What would you put the value on something like this?

    He wants to trade for a Gen 3 G19 with some extras I have, I guess I just don't want to get ripped off. I built an AR some time ago....don't really need another one, but it sure was fun to work on the one I built.

    Any thoughts?

    If it has a decent upper on it, I would value it in the $500-$550 range...about the same as a new G19. You would probably be doing OK in a trade for a used G19.

    Probably a safe trade, but really not enough info on the AR to make any educated decision.
