Default 16" bushmaster upper?

What's a fair price to ask for one of these, it has the 11.5" barrel with a pinned brake on it, fixed carrry handle includes bcg and charging handle.

The ones I have seen similar to that are going around the $600-$700 range MINUS the BCG.

Thanks, I built a bull barrel upper and was thinking of keeping my lower off the bushmaster and selling the stock bushmaster upper for some extra cash

You can get BCM uppers minus the BCG and charging handle for $450 -529. You just need to keep an eye on their site. Whoever is paying $700 for a bushmaster upper is desparate and doesn't know what they are doing.

With that said, you could probably easilly sell it to someone who doesn't know any better for $700-800 because you have a BCG with it and people are buying anything now a days.

Might put it on arms list and see what offers I get, I don't need two uppers if I've only got one lower for it, and the kid wants to help daddy build a mini bike or a go cart so may use that cash and make him a nice little toy with it.

Sounds like with the 11.5" barrel it must have the 5.5" pinned brake on it. That and the fixed carry handle likely would bring down the price as it's not desireable today. Still, you might as well put it out there and see what bids it will bring. I'm not sure but you might do better selling the upper and BCG in separate auctions.

Kind of what I was thinking but I posted it so we shall see what kind of offers it brings, If nothing reasonable I will list them separately or keep it and have a blast o matic upper and my longer range upper set up for coyotes.

Yeah, there's no way in hell I would ever pay that price. I'm just saying, it someone wants it now, then that's what they are paying just to get their hands on one.

In my area I've seen my same ar the xm15e2s go for up to 1800 bucks, its ridiculous what people are willing to pay i bought this one brand new 3 years ago for just under 800, but if someone wants to pay that ill take it, I'm not out to rip someone off, but if they offer me a stupid amount its their fault and ill jump on it and build my kid the baddest mini bike around.
