Default What are these worth?

I Have two lower receivers that I bought from a friend in California and I'd like to sell them. What he told me was that they are both pre ban. What I need to know is if that makes them more or less valuable and how could I verify their age? One is a colt sporter match hbar (serial # mh054824), the other is a bushmaster xm15-e2s (serial # L175475. Any help would be much appreciated. :-)

Ban no longer matters as the ban is over. Even if they were made during the ban, you can build them any way you want. The Colt? $200-$250? The Bushmaster? $100-$175 depending on whether new or used.

I believe they are stripped lowers. Maybe I'm wrong but those prices seem high.

I was thinking the same thing. I would say both are around $100. With places like PSA regularly putting stripped lowers on sale for $49, I wouldn't think you would get much above $100 for them.

A fair price for you and the buyer would be around $100.00. Suggested Retail obviously would be higher but there are good deals in the market available. So $75.00 - $100 would be more than a fair price for each.

My LGS sells stripped Spike's for $83 but that's plus tax and background. On a FTF deal, I would say the BM is worth $100 and maybe a little more for the Colt.
