Dpms lr308
So what do you guys think about the dpms lr308 and how much would y'all value one in average condition

It would depend on how many rounds have been shot out of it,the exact model,and the exact condition of the entire rifle.
(1) Does it have an aftermarket or reworked trigger? The factory trigger is awful.
(2) Does it have cycling problems? Some do.On some the gas port on the barrel was found to be too small. On my LR-260,the buffer spring was too stiff,I had to cut 3 coils off the buffer spring in order for the bolt to stay locked back after the last round was fired,and it doesn't jam anymore.
(3) Are there any type of optics or mounts that come with it? Good optics or mounts will increase the value some.

I've fired hundreds of rounds through mine and I love it. Trigger is not bad at all. 100 percent reliable.

Used excellent, probably around $750 to $800.

I have a DPMS LR308 AP4 (carbine) for the past 7-8 years now,the rifle has been completely reliable and very accurate.

Value? My guess would be in the 700.00-750.00 neighborhood depending on model and accessories.

Sure. If I was selling mine, I would ask $1000, but I wouldn't turn down $800.
