Default pre ban OA93

I have an Olympic Arms OA93 With a very low DB serial#. I purchased this OA new from a shop many years ago. I have put under 60 rounds thru it. Any thoughts on it's value?

its not a collector weapon so serial number plays no part in value

there is no longer a premium for "pre-ban" rifles since the assault on civil rights that the gun ban was is no longer in effect.

they are selling new for around 950. half that price if you sell to a gun shp somewhere in between if you conduct a private sale. price can be any where from 0-900$ based on condition.

Default collectors weapon?

There seems to be two fields of thought on this pistol. The first 50 OA93's made were made by a barrel maker for Olympic Arms and these were serial numbered 1 thru 50. Olympic Arms started production after these were made with the standard serial numbers. The DB's are considered a piece of Olympic Arms history and some have commanded a premium price. The current production gun retails for $1200.00 and if you want one good luck...they're on back order.

Put it on Gunbroker and see what it brings. The value of any gun is what someone is willing to pay for it...

Unfortunately pretty much everything Olympic Arms sells is on backorder. Not only that, but the order taker will, if you place an order, proceed to lie and tell you 6-8 weeks, which I have then seen that turn into 3-4 months and last special order I placed finally turn into about 1-1/2 years, all without apology. Probably just one of the many reasons Oly Arms stuff is not too highly sought after.
