Default Help please on getting right price

So I'm thinking about buying this AR that is beautiful and is custom built, but I don't know if I'm getting the right price or if I should go lower. He's saying that he will give me the AR if I give him my used Ruger P95 with two extended clips + $1200. The riffle specs are as follows (it's Greek to me but I'm trying to learn)

Taken from email:
"Rifle Specs: Stripped Aero upper and lower. nice tight fighting match. Arp 16inch scout profile barrel which is Melonite treated and will last longer then 30% longer then chrome lined. Pri muzzle break which takes away much of the recoil and is designed to help with shooter noise. BCM mid length charging handle(makes easier to charge when scope is attached to rifle. arstoner Bolt carrier group. midwest industries ss gen2 hand guard. magpul moe stock with 5 position buffer tube. magpul rubberized grip. magpul vertical grip. cmmg lower parts kit... the rifle is very light and is not a bench gun. i just like the bi pod for extra stability when range shooting with my other rifles. you cant really get a whole lot lighter then this rifle onless you get a pencil thin barrel and a composite receiver, which are junk...

Aero is cheap not saying its junk, but not worth the price. Don't know the barrel.

He sounds like a snob.

I would not make that trade. Keep your Ruger and put together a nice AR from Palmetto State Armory for that chunk of change.

Check out the aero website. The receivers retail list price is just over $300 for both. Consider building your own and keeping your Ruger.

Keep an eye on some parts or gun deals on this thread and others. Tell that guy to pound sand.

Sounds like this guy is trying to capitalize on the AR mania of 6 months ago. Pass.
