    Default WHAT are AR-15 Lowers-----Uppers------Complete---Really selling FOR...??

    Not what "SELLERS" asking.........Not what buyers "want" to pay........But real DONE deals in the ALASKA market place........????

    This thread could be helpful for buyers and sellers in the current market.

    For example: Wild West Guns on Friday had a very, very nice "Bushmaster Varminter" for $1,299.00 I don't know if it has sold.

    I am trying to price a lower at a fair price.

    For what it is worth, most Alaskans I talk to realize they can get more for their guns on Gunbrokers than they can locally. You can research gunbrokers under the completed auction section and find the actual price that items sold for. Prices for the most part are crazy.
    Seemed a lot of local sellers jumped on the band wagon (check Alaskalist) trying to get top dollar out of their AR's and mags but with little luck. I've seen bare bone lowers on GB go for up to $500. Strange world we live in today.
    Guess most of you guys who have tables at the Wasilla High School gun show that is coming up soon will find out what the market will be like.

    I pieced together two 5.56 rifles and a 6.8 SPC since the school shooting tragedy. I paid only $20 more for each rifle that I would have before the election and the shooting. The market is already correcting itself and the prices are starting to drop. If you know where to look and are willing to spend the time on the computer you don't HAVE to pay high prices for stuff. I'm treating it as a game right now. It's fun to find parts at good prices, and they are still out there.

    Sold a colt 6920 NIB with 5 30rd GI mags for $1500 last week a day after I listed it. I'm sure I coulda made more on Gunbroker, but I was happy to make a couple bucks and not have to deal with shipping a gun out of state. I doubt I coulda gotten much more in state, but who knows?

    So from my limited data I think you could take pre craze prizing and add $100-200 for a complete gun and you shouldn't have too much trouble finding a buyer. As with anything, it just depends on what you have and who wants it. I think more popular configurations and brands will have a greater premium than less popular configurations.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Brownells is doing a pre-sale on stripped lowers for less than $100.
