1st Post.... my ol' Man got a good deal on a 5.7 today.....

Post by tmwtrfwler » 18 Apr 2014, 14:04

so I think.

It's a never fired Tactical with 12 mags, 2 extra FN boxes that hold the 12 mags orderly, and 1,800 rounds of SS195 ammo for $2,750.00

Gun, 12 mags and 240 rounds of SS195 was $1,700

Extra 1,500 rounds of SS195 was $1,050


I hope it's a good deal. I told him to keep the 5.7 in the safe as a collector item and buy a new one to shoot! I'm thinking it'll be valuable one day.

I think you got a bit overcharged on the ammo but overall, you did pretty well.

Congrats.

I'm probably the wrong person to ask - I shoot every gun I own, otherwise what's the point? :laugh:

Wait until someone who knows about gun values weighs in

10-4. I'm telling him to sit tight for the moment and don't shoot it. I would hate to risk shooting it if it'll be worth good $ later on.....just not sure how much it will be worth (and nobody is of course)

does anyone else have any feedback? I'm torn on shooting it but realistically how much can these things be worth?

I wouldn't shoot it. Do you know what year the gun was manufactured?

I would shoot it, you can trade me for a new USG w/ MRD + cash, I PM'd you, then I'll shoot it for you :)
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

If your gun is a DAO, one just sold on Gunbroker for 3,500.

Oh nevermind, I just checked closely and yours doesn't appear to be a DAO.
