    Thoughts on value for a Windham manufactured Bushmaster xm15. It has a little wear but overall in good shape. Upgraded with the following AAC 51 tooth threaded flash hider ready for your suppressor, knights armament rail with sliding locking covers, yankee hill machine flip up front sight integrated into gas block, magpul grip, magpul bad lever, mst minimalist stock, extended safety switch, upgraded trigger...I believe it is an American Trigger Corporation gold trigger. Im also pretty sure it has a FailZero BCG...but not positive on that. Can also throw in the magpul AFG. Ideas on value for this gem? 20190703_195349.jpg

    Guess i should figure if i have to bump my own appraisal it's not worth much of anything.

    You may not be getting responses because what you have is a mix, at least from my standpoint. With an M&P 15 available at 500 or less new, PSA putting decent rifles out at less, the general AR market being in the tanked position, a base Bushmaster won't fall much better. Then you've got people asking questions about when it was built...before the Cerberus/Freedom/Remington purchase? After the purchase but before moving out of Maine? "IF" it's a AR Gold trigger, it's a good trigger but I don't know many that would buy a rifle for the trigger.

    If I wanted to sell it in this market, I'd replace the trigger and BCG with mil-spec, along with installing a birdcage. Sell the trigger, flash suppressor and BCG separate. Perhaps the rifle at 425 to 450. If the barrel's chrome lined, that could help somewhat.

    Seems like an unusual rifle set up to me, I'd not think of putting a 275.00 trigger on a Bushy, but in the days of 800.00 bucks of add-ons to Glocks, it happens. Just my opinion, but good luck.

    I was thinking the same on market, etc. I picked it up used, so cant comment on why upgrades were done the way they were. Dont want to take off front as it is pinned/welded...14.5 inch barrel. Maybe ill throw it on armslist for some outlandish price just to see if there are any takers...lol
