    That makes me wonder if they got a bad batch of laser assemblies.

    I sure hope so. I'm gonna give it a go at the range tomorrow and if it continues to be a problem I'll have to let them know.

    Wasn't sure where to look for help on this, so I thought I'd try here. If you have a better suggestion of where to get estimates for guns, please let me know.

    Thinking about purchasing these three guns from my Aunt. Can anyone help me determine what a good price is? They're all pretty used, but in OK shape. We spent an entire day cleaning up around 150lbs of brass from the room. My Aunts boyfriend had taken to shooting them out the window during the last year at targets he put in the back yard (they have about 220 acres).

    A S&W AR chambered in 556. Not a great scope but doesn't look too bad:
    AR1.jpg
    AR2.jpg


    A small 410 guage side-by-side that would be great for my 10y/o son and for small game:
    410sidebyside1.jpg
    410sidebyside2.jpg


    And a 20 guage over/under that would be a nice trap gun.

    Thanks for any help. Let me know what you think of the gun choices. He has 5-6 ARs and about 100 other long guns and pistols. Kind of tough to weed through the really worn ones with so many and only about 30 minutes. I'll probably be heading back there to help sort and list all the guns next month to help her out. May find something good then, but the majority were (around 50 guns) were 22LR. There were some nice high accuracy 22LR pistols that may be interesting.

    The AR is ~$600ish new. Looks like a cheapish Bushnell or Nikon scope. Can’t remember the cost of the scope but would guess the $100 range.

    Is she trying to sell them or just inventory what’s there? Is he out of the picture? Might be legal issues if he’s still around.

    If she is looking to sell them, contact a store like Cabela’s. They routinely go to places like that and will buy multiple guns from the same person. I’ve seen ours buy over 100 guns from one person.

    prices are pretty low right now,so an $800-1000 AR is going for $450-600....you can kind of check against gun broker. To find similar firearms, pawn shop is going to give you half price if you are lucky, consignment will charge 20% of the current value

    Has anyone had any success selling a rifle on gun broker? I have a Sig m400 that I never use and I want to free up some room.

    I figure I'd get some actual feedback before going to the trouble of verifying my account.

    I saw a S&W M&P Sport II AR for ~$540 with a red dot on reddit the other day. I'd ask somewhere in the $475 range for the rifle and scope.

    No clue what a reasonable price would be for the shotguns.

    I have never sold on Gun Broker, but have bought a couple.

    Never had a problem - the seller's I dealt with helpful and easy to communicate with.

    Update: I finally got the sight removed and packaged for shipping.
    Red dot has re-appeared but has a slight double image (verified by another set of eyes) and had switched from auto mode to manual without anybody changing it.
    Tough to get a good photo but you can see here how the outline is not round.

    Not sure if there is any interest here, but I have these paracord slings that I’m not using. I made these 4-5 years ago and have no need for them anymore.

    Each one has roughly 130’ of paracord
    Standard swivels
    Tan one is 40.5” from swivel to swivel
    Camo one is 36” swivel to swivel

    Thinking $50 each shipped or $90 for both shipped.

    Looking at getting a gun cabinet. What is everybodies thoughts on the stack-on gun cabinets? Secureit lightweight cabinets are pretty expensive, are they worth the price? Any other recommendations?
    Thanks

    For gun storage they’re not worth it, 5 minutes with a grinder and you have all the access you want.
    I use one for reloading components but that’s it.
    If Mt has tractor supply stores look at their safes, they’re not real high quality but they’re better than Stack-On, and they run from about $300 and up.

    For what they are they are fine IMO. I view them in the "keep the smash and grab crowd out" type. Will do just fine for keeping the quick in and out guys and kids, visitors, ect out. But for someone who is a bit more determined....they arent that great.

    All I am looking for is keeping the kids and guests out. Not worried about fire rating. When I get a house I will get a actual safe. Renting a place right now with the living area above the garage and I don’t want to deal with moving around a safe.

    Since you are planning to put it on an elevated floor, I suggest going with something lighter rather a heavy, traditional safe. You don't want it crashing through the floor.

    It sound to me like a Stack-On would serve your current needs well. For some added security, you can bolt it to the floor and/or wall.
