    I have a standard Bushmaster AR. 20" with both 5 pos stock and standard A2 stock. Also has sling and one mag.

    This would be trade in value :hs:... I want to put it towards a rem 700 or a new AR w/16" upper, flat top, etc.

    Here is a pic.... The mag is a newer bushy one not this old beat up thing.

    you are looking at about 6-700 and it will sell, you might be able to get 800 out of it

    You'll probably get more for it by just selling the upper online and buying a new one. You'll also not have to deal with a ffl. No reason to get a new lower or pay excise tax on a completed firearm again.

    yea, definitely just sell the upper and get an M4 upper with that money.

    yeah, the luxury of having an ar is that you can swap parts pretty damn easy. dont need to sell the whole rifle to build something else.

    You could probly get 600-700 for it selling it outright and maybe, $450 in trade. Remember there are numerous AR companies out there selling M4 clone lowers for $200 bucks and M4 clone uppers for $400. Every since all the hype with the M4, 20 inch uppers have come in at the back of the bus. Id just hold onto it personally.

    Remember, trading it in at a gunstore they will give you next to nothing, because they get them at a discount, you could probly get 400 for it if you include bolt and carrier on AR15.com or backpage.com

    UPDATE! Well 2 gun stores said around $450 .... and one said $596.25. I thought that was pretty good! Might have to think about it. Then if I buy a new gun, $596 of it is not taxed!
