Ruger Mini-14 Ranch rifle - minimum value?
A buddy of mine bought a Ranch rifle 6-8 weeks ago. Before shooting it, he decided he didn't want to keep it. It is NIB and I agreed to go with him to a couple of dealers to see what they'll pay cash or what he'd probably get on a consignment sale (with 20% commission).
Any thoughts on the lowest amount he should expect to get before I jump in and buy a rifle I have absolutely no need for (and no companion gun in .223)? I'm OK with, "Don't buy it at any price" if that's the answer, because I get all trembly in the knees when I see a good brand for sale, unused, at what might be an incredibly low price.
