White ring PS90's are/have sold for around $1,200 to $1,400. Also it's used. If its what you want and you have the money to burn, then buy it. If it were me I'd offer $1,800. I think he's about $500 or so too high.
Do you know if that quad rail is from Redwolf or Magazine parts?

That's a sweet carbine!!

The real question is not is the rifle worth $2000. That's too logical, you just sum up the parts and reduce for it being used.

The real question is, is the rifle worth $2000 to you?

Treat yourself, get it, you'll love it! I wish he would meet you in the middle at $1900 though. Although the charging handle and mag make up $100.

I say, if you can, go for it!

:shock:

You have a second topic on getting a SBR setup. If your intention is to buy this PS90 then SBR it, don't do it as I do not think that it is worth it.

Buy a new PS90 for around $1200 to $1400, figure another $100 bucks for 2 more magazines, then SBR it, or buy a SBR'ed one already.

However if you want this tricked out PS90 and will leave it as a PS90 then only you can decide if it is too much money. For me, it is not worth it. I think that more like $1700 to $1800 is reasonable.

Sounds like he over-paid a premium price for the rifle when he bought it and now he wants to recroup some money.

I dont believe i would get it setup as a sbr.. but i do think this is over priced.. isnt used ususally worth 50-75% also his initial prices he claims he paid look inflated or top dollar..

Buy it, don't SBR it.

The front quad rail , and accessories mounted, would get dirty from the muzzle blast if you have it on the SBR.

Give your avatar a wake up call!
