    Just really gauging interest in this right now. I don't shoot a ton of 300BLK anymore and if I could get something decent out of it I'd be inclined to move it on to someone that could use it.

    Parts list:
    Seekins Billet Upper SP223
    Geissele MK4 7" handguard
    Silencerco ASR Muzzle Brake
    Magpul AFG
    Streamlight 88058 ProTac Rail 350 lumen (have the switch just not attached at the moment)
    KAK Value 300 BLK 8.5" Barrel
    WMD M16 NiB-X Polished BCG
    BCM Gunfighter charging handle
    Primary Arms Micro Dot w/ Base
    Low profile gas block / pistol tube

    Have around $1100 total in it (damn Geissele/Seekins)...obviously wouldn't expect to sell it for that. Think I could get $800 or so out of it?

    Pics of it (sorry for the sun glare):

    I think you’ll have one heck of a time selling a premium upper in this market. As usual, you’ll be FAR better off parting it out.

    If I were a buyer, I’d look at an Aero upper for $450 + $140 bcg/ch. The one big negative I see in this one vs other options out there, is the KAK barrel; it doesn’t scream quality like Seekins and Geissele.

    My best guesses for parting out:
    Seekins Billet Upper SP223 $150
    Geissele MK4 7" handguard $???
    Silencerco ASR Muzzle Brake $50
    Magpul AFG $15
    Streamlight 88058 ProTac Rail 350 lumen (have the switch just not attached at the moment) $???
    KAK Value 300 BLK 8.5" Barrel $50
    WMD M16 NiB-X Polished BCG $100
    BCM Gunfighter charging handle $40
    Primary Arms Micro Dot w/ Base $100
    Low profile gas block / pistol tube $20

    Very fair - and mainly the reason I've never even attempted to sell it. I wanted all premium stuff but most people don't, and that's totally cool.

    And surprisingly this barrel out shot the other 2 I tried (1 noveske and 1 geissele). The noveske gave me so many darn issues they finally just sent me a full refund after months of troubleshooting. The geissele was nice but I think I got a dud.

    Anyways enough rambling....valid point. Figured it can't hurt to see :)

    You're pretty close, nice guesses. upper was a little more. Handguard was around $225. Muzzle brake new was a little more. Barrel was double that new. BCG was a little more and the rest is close enough for government work :)
