    I have a Bushmaster BCWA2F16M4 (A2 top, 16" M4 profile chrome barrel, collapsible stock) that a person asked to buy. It is in pristine condition with about 400 rounds through it. I happen to want to sell it because I have enough guns without it.

    This guy is a successful businessman and says he has five ARs already.

    What would be a fair selling price?

    Right now it would sell for $900 or so I would guess. Is this person a friend or family? If so sell it to him at a fair price, I sold two this year to family for what I paid for them pre mess. Or maybe a trade if he has a equal value gun you want :)

    He's not a friend, but he is in my small town and I may be doing business with him one day, so being fair would be a good investment.

    Anything under $800 is fair for that gun, given the current prices and availability of ARs.

    I would vote $775-$800 then. Doe snot sound like you want the rifle nor need the money so you can not go wrong giving him a good deal :)

    $700-800 depending on what is included. Mags? Sling? Case?

    Lots of mags, spares, tools, and goodies. I added those up and tacked those on. He liked the package price.
