I thought gunbroker was pretty easy to work with. The sale went very smooth, and I had the buyer pay me through PayPal. Just don't mention what the payment is for on PayPal. They don't like firearms.

wow. $400 for a plum crazy plastic lower? I bought mine for $130 after taxes, and figured "it's got a lifetime warranty, and it's only $130!!" of course, 4 months later the whole company just went "poof!" so I guess my lifetime warranty was really a 4 month warranty!!

anyway, it's still working fine, but I decided that with the now "you bought it, you own it, no warranty for you" position that I found myself in, I did some AR part swapping, and turned my former Bushmaster 20" AR into an M4gery and then put the old school M16 stock, and 20" bbl upper onto my PC lower.

I briefly considered trying to sell it for $1,000 but quickly decided that I didn't want to be the guy who took advantage of idiots looking to get into the AR market. Anyone with any sense knows that a PC lower was only about $100 complete, when new, and that the 20" bushmaster was $850 when new...and that the PC lower and bushmaster upper together should really only be worth $500-600.

So instead of selling it, I told my buddy who's wanted an AR for awhile but may have waited too long, that if he buys me a brand new in the box M9 (I want one for the markings, I already have a 92FS) that I would trade him for my PC lower/Bushmaster upper.
