Thinking about selling my 10/22. What do you think it's worth?
#1
First of all, this is NOT a classifieds add. If I decide to sell, I'll make a post in the classifieds forum.

Basically, I have a 10/22 that's modified to fit my needs, suppressor ready, and I'm considering selling it. Why? Well I can't legally hunt with it, and I just got myself a full auto M11/9 with a 22 conversion kit. I got the 10/22 strictly for fun, and I think that my full auto will result in the 10/22 sitting in the safe for most of it's life. But I need money in general, and I also need money to trick out my M11/9 into the gun that I really want it to be.

If I sell my 10/22, I might be able to get enough money to get a side cocker upper for the M11/9, and maybe even a single shot H&R .22lr that I can legally hunt with, and have the best of both worlds. The side cocker is $160, and I can find the H&R for well under $200.

As for the 10/22, it's a stainless model that was upgraded with a Tactical Innovations stainless threaded bull barrel, a Boyd's thumbhole stock in textured black finish, a trigger job done by CDI gunsmithing, and a Nikon Prostaff 2-7 scope. I haven't decided whether I'd want to include the scope with it or not.

So my question is, how much do you think it's worth? Would I be better off selling it with the scope, or without?

I'd sell without the scope.

Add up what you have in it.
Deduct for you making it how you wanted it, not everyone else thinks the same way or likes the same thing.

I don't know what you have in it but I have a guess. With standard run of the mill 10/22's being $189 retail, you are really trying to sell your upgrades.

You can start higher than $400, but I think that sounds about right without the scope unless you can find your clone that likes exactly what you do.
Even at $400, you are looking for the perfect buyer IMO.

Selling a trigger job is tough, no offense to CDI, but not everyone knows what kind of work everyone does.
Personally I'm always a bit skittish about triggerjobs.

I'll trade you a Marlin bolty with a scope & toss in $50!

Seriously though, I agree with flathead. You'll have to run into the right person to get back anywhere near what you have invested. I'd total up what I had in it, post up and see if you can get within 80 to 90%.
The guys I deal with don't even consider scope value when figuring what they will buy a gun for so I'd try to sell that as a seperate item.

It's worth nothing. You should just give it to me, I'll make sure it gets a good home.

Whenever I sell something, I don't think about how much I spent because that money is long gone. I always think in terms of how much am I willing to take because whatever money you get from your sale will be "free" money.

CDI does great work, but as other poster said...if someone doesn't know the reputation of CDI...it might make the person think twice about purchasing.

I guess no one wants to say......

You can hope for what you put into it, but you can't expect that. Most people have a small doubt about modifications done possibly wrong or misuse of the firearm. As a result, for the same price many would elect to do the mods themselves. The threaded barrel is cool but most people aren't set up for a suppressor so you have a relatively small audience. I'd not add the scope since that is a very personal choice and narrows your audience even more. The trigger job is a great for some and intimidating to others. A lot of guys cringe at a trigger less than 4lbs.


That being said, I'd expect $400 at the most and $350 being reasonable.

Sorry. I made a generalization to all the useless posts.

I should have excluded you.

Truly....not in snarky way.
