A friend called yesterday saying he had something to show me. Bill is in his early sixties, works as a private heavy equipment mechanic, has no real interest in guns per se, and took one of these in trade over a $1k debt.
It appears unused. Asking if I wanted it, I winged it and offered him $1200 - it's also got the claw mount and Leupold scope; it's missing the sling and box, but does have an Assualt Systems soft case, the manual, and two 30 round factory mags.
He said he'd think about my offer and get back to me. Later I checked GunBroker, and a similar condition version, sans scope and mount, sold for $5001 on the sixteeth.
This morning he called and asked if I have a nice AR that I might be interested in trading straight across. I replied that I had three he could choose from. Keeping my fingers crossed here.
