View Full Version : Parting out an AR-100/K2

I am seriously contemplating parting out my AR-100 to help fund a project. The 1/7 barrel does not have a perfect bore, that is why I am giving it consideration.

Here are my thoughts. I would let it all ride on GB only, no private sales.

Leave the folding lower complete

Piece out the rest for spares.

It is hard to get a good feel for pricing because there is really no history on any part sales.

Any thoughts?

If you decide to part it out here, through private sales, I would be interested in the barrel, bolt, bolt carrier, and front sight block.

As for as pricing info, you could use the pricing on DaewooRifleParts as a guide.

Good luck with your new project.:D

most people that part it out are due to a kb. seeing such a limited market, you might be better off selling it as is b/c some people may want a spare complete upper but not sure who'd really shell out the bucks for a lower. now if there were demilled k2 kits out there, that lower would bring a nice premium.

Why not try to sell it here first as a complete rifle. Then if it doesn't sell you can part it out. I know I am always looking for another Woo.:love:

It is on GB right now and is near the end of the auction, but not gaining traction.

Might be worth picking up if you have a barrel that Moses can use to re-barrel it.

i see. thought it was parted out already.

to set a good value take a factory used ar100 which is around $1200. then subtract the cost to redo the barrel. also factor in a little less as even though it's a new barrel it's not factory anymore.

I believe you could "plus" back some value if you chose a faster rate of twist than 1 in 12 that was standard on these since it opens up a whole new world of ammunition possibilities denied us 1 in 12ers.

I was unaware that "all" K-2s were 1 in 7. Can you quote a source for this information please?

It is also interesting to note that while MOST of the K2s are 1:12 twist, MOST of the AR100s are 1:7 twist.

Please let me know if you part it out, I have been looking for a k2 butt pad for some time.
