    308 Howa value?

    Was thinking to sell my M1500 308 stainless. It's the older version with the black stock. Barrel has been shortened and threaded, bore clean. No scope or rings just bases. Bloody good shooter with nice trigger. Comes with a new stainless MAE ob suppressor (maybe 30 rounds). Have a lee classic, and a set of RGB and some projectiles.

    How much they go for nowadays?

    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.

    Thanks Timmay.

    I guess taking it in to a gunstore would been around 50%?

    I bought one of these for a cobber at Invercargill Gun City last year for $500 (I think, maybe it was $450). I know it was listed at $550 cause I have the tag. PM Sent

    Yep, probably, for a good condition Howa 1500 they'll probably offer to write you a cheque for $450-$500 and aim to sell it for $700.

    We sell bare rifle new with a warranty for a little under $900. Bearing in mind there was also a run of 7mm08s in the green stock at $999 new. If it is in as new condition as you describe the I would suggest trying for $550 to $600 ish. You can always negotiate down a bit but $550 to $600 is a air price for both parties. (Rifle only)

    OB suppressor is a bit of a harder one. If it is a heavier older one probably $100 or so as a new Spartan is $300.

    Lee classic press new would be around $300 so asking $170 ish would be fair if they specifically want a classic. Problem is if the buyer is just after a press, the the Lee basic C press is under $100 and the breech lock is $170 new so you would get much less for it. My suggestion would be hang onto the press for what its worth.

    these prices are what I would look to reasonably sell it for if it was mine, but I dont mind waiting to find someone who wants it. If you want to sell fast lower prices mean better value and will sell quicker.....
