    Grip Pod System: AR-15 Vertical Forward Grip SAW, priced at $183 on
    Rifle Case: Pelican 1700, priced at $229 on MidwayUSA
    Stag Arms Lower Receiver:

    Everything listed is brand new. The rifle case itself is in great shape and was purchased earlier this year.

    Y'all are probably wondering why would I want to sell this bad boy but I could use the money. This was a gift from a family member last Xmas when I lived in California. I got the lower so I could put the Rifle into my name (cause Commifornia is weak!) so I just have an extra lower laying around. I am now an Austin native. I am hoping to at least get $2k for it. I never got around to shooting it so the thing is brand spanking new.

    What do you guys think?

    Market is down right now.

    Search for listings similar to your rig. That will get you a little feel for asking price.

    You can list high and hope to get a stupid buyer. It happens. Or you can list more realistically.

    If you came in my shop and tried to peddle it, I would offer no more than $1,200 complete. A little more on trade, but not much.

    The optic is nice and why my hypothetical offer is so high. Those grip pod runs about $20/used (there were a ton of these turned in through military channels recently and they are close to worthless). Pelican cases too, $80 max if the foam is uncut. Stag lowers are worth what pretty much all used standard-grade lowers are running these days, $50-80.

    Best of luck.

    The AR market is very soft right now. LWRC is a higher-end company, but even the rabid fanboys know they are just not selling for much right now.
