    i don't have it here with me at the moment, but i'll get the maker for you guys soon. add ons are the grip, aftermarket stock, night sights, and dual mag holder. scope is included. it's in good condition, i just had a gunsmith go over it for me.

    With scope and all, I would say around $1,000. The used AR's are down in price a bit now and I have recently seen several with extensive modifications in the $1,000-$1,500 range.

    Take off the scope and try to sell it. Then go to gunbrokers and find out what prices people are bidding for similar rifles.
    That will get you in the ball park.
    Value has seemed to drop.
    You can buy a new S&W at Sportsman Warehouse for $860 or so.

    looks like a bushmaster dissapator with redi-mag.

    I'd put the gun about 900 ish, maybe 1-200 for the scope, you're looking at no more than 1300 for the whole package, and more likely about 1K.

    Put it on the swap-and-sell on this site! Gunbroker is worth checking out too.

    I would suggest you try to sell it here or locally. A shop will only give you about 70% (at the most) of what you can expect to sell it for yourself.
    Few shops buy weapons. Most only do cosignment.

    I'd give you $800 max shipped for it. Could have bought brand new at SW in Anchorage for $900.
    How many rounds shot through it? And how many years old?
