Complete parts kit ...18" barrel, bolt, trigger assembly, etc. Stock may have been repaired at one point...cannot say for sure.

Any idea of value?
TIA

I got a complete gun SS version for $950 1.5 years ago. This was a post sample they
Cut up for me. Not a folder. A full size gun. Excellent condition

Non ss gun I’d guess $750.

Folder gun $1,300-$1500

Ss folder $1550-1,700

Parts kits are rare but come up a couple times a year

Thanks rentprop1. Are you a RE investor? I hold some real estate for recurring revenue. Just purchased #13 SFR.

Used to be ...now Im just another idiot trying to make it in the gun business....I got out before the crash in 08....chose not to look back.....funny everyone always thinks my screen name is boat or aircraft rentals

I always watch for ac556 parts kits ...and folding stocks I have a customer in need of a blued one currently. That one is a never gonna sell for 2500 and I'm being the Reserve is too high...but I'm watching it ....If I was a betting man I'd say 1250 tops

Maybe you should buy a lotto ticket. You almost nailed the ending price for that parts kit.
I cannot believe his reserve is $2,000.

first off I do this for a living, secondly, maybe I know the guy who was bidding on it, even if he relists it I will low bid it, just to prove a point that we already know

Frank is ...well....Frank.....and he seriously needs hit with a price adjustment stick, I just can't believe people actually lay down and buy from people like that.

I look at it that he can either sit on it or sell it, market rate is no more than about $ 1250 ( stock about $650-750 and the parts are worth about $600 ) together as a package worth less than that, because someone either wants the parts or the stock in this market....and will have the hassle of relisting and selling the other of the 2

Well said.

I've currently got an ac556f blued 13" folder and a full size mini 14 GB,
That was converted (really clean conversion) to select fire back in the early 80's; furthermore,
I'm in the market for a parts kit. I'm not willing to spend more than $650
(obviously full size barrel for that price)
Maybe one day, I'll find one. Unfortunately, I turned down one last year for $500 local in north central FL.
