Wild guess after browsing various AR boards...

hmm, I can tell you what I might be willing to pay for it if I was in the market. IMO, It would be in the $300-400 range. I got that from taking a standard full AR parts kit (sans lower) at around $540, and subtracting the lower parts kit (~$60) and the butt stock w/ all it's buffer hardware, etc. (~$70). Then considering the fact it is used. The rest would depend on the exact condition (probably on the good end with the lowish round count), how well it looked like the gun was cared for, and how bad I wanted it.

Standard A2 upper from DPMS, assuming a complete upper, let's see...

For comparison, from assorted vendors I've used:

RRA- $499
Bushmaster- $515
Sabre Defence (flat top, but with carry handle)- $590
BCM (no handguards, carry handle, charging handle, or BCG)- $399
CMMG (no handguards or carry handle)- $547

I'd take any one of those over a DPMS any day of the week. The one you have is also used.

I'd consider the value of your DPMS upper to be no more than $400 all in, and I'd probably consider $350 to be more realistic.

$400-450 would be a fair price, IMO.

$350-450 depending on how bad you want an A2 or how good a friend you're buying from.
