    How much should I ask for my FN five-seven?

    Fired 150 rounds through it
    Comes with about 250 rounds
    Has a Streamlight M2 tac light
    4 Surefire batteries
    3 20 rnd mags
    Modified the mags so they'll fit with the gun set to fire without a magazine

    And all original documents included

    Depends.

    You may have to sell them separately.

    I sold mine with ~200 rounds through it for $900 cash on the barrelhead. Sold it with everything it came with (3 mags, case, lock, cleaning kit) these things are all standard so they don't add any value. Don't ever expect to get anything for "extras" (lights, holsters, night sights) on a gun, you have to seperate them to make your money.

    I agree with the rest that selling the M2 separately would be the best choice. I think $900 for the pistol, case, and mags would be about right. $125-$150 for the light is about average here.

    I can't imagine why you would sell it though. My wife would divorce me if I ever sold hers.

    I wish I could sell my 57 for 900. No one local wants to pay jack for them.

    Around here gun and mags should sell retail for about $800 or so (returned to original operating condition). Wholesale about $150 to $200 less than retail.

    Sell the other stuff separately.

    The local gun store offered $700 for the gun, mags, and the original case w/ paperwork. $800 with the light. I have a friend offering $1,200 for the complete set up.

    $1200 is a very high offer. Take it, or if you want to be nice, give it to him for $1100 since he is a friend.

    Hell I'd feel guilty if I took more than $1000 from a friend... How good of a friend is he?

    So give it to your friend for $1,100, and you will both be happy. Charging someone you know what amounts to retail prices just seems mean, even if he offers that amount.
