What would something like this go far these days?
I would rate it at about 98% very little use, only very slight handling wear, Folding ACE skeleton stock and I don't recall the PG right now but overall very nice....

THANKS!

I think your estimate is a bit low, IMHO.
Chris, get hold of me. I have a potential buyer for your Woo.

My bad, I didn't know you were asking a rhetorical question. :rolleyes:

What is your asking price for the Dr-200? The whole rifle, not the upper.:wink:

If you already had a number in mind, why ask?

No offense intended. I always price the weapons I sell, at the point where I'm comfortable letting them go. That's all.

stock DR-200s have been in the $725-$800 range. start with that and 60% of the upgrades you have on it for a fair market value. when you start getting close to $1000, you start getting into K2 money there and it's hard to compete with a factory folder w/ pistol grip and flash hider.

As stated,the problem is,once you convert the rifle,you are indeed close to what a K2 can be found for(if you search long enough).

I have mine listed for $1100,people like it,but people don't buy it.
I broke down the conversion parts and it comes to a little over $200.

If you like M193 ammo, the converted DR200 (with it's 1/12 barrel) is a great buy.

If you like heavier bullets (M855 or Mark 262 Mod 0/1), then the K2 with it's 1/7.3 barrel is better...

Just sayin'...

I too have a converted folder that I wouldn't sell for less than $1,000. It shoots American eagle 55grain black box into nice tight groups at 100 yards that's good enough for me. The Pmc bronze 55grain it shoots into tight groups as well but 1 inch higher and 1/2 an inch to the left of the AE.

I have the same setup.. I'd ask $1000 as well. I agree you can get a pre-ban for a bit more. My thought is you won't feel the same guilt when you do mods to a DR-200 (ie shorten the barrel to 16", ad some stock adapters, hand guards, etc) as you might with a pre-ban.

Well, just personally speaking, I wouldn't touch a DR-200 for any more than $650. Why spend $1,000+ on a DR-200, even with a folding stock conversion, when you can get the real deal K2 for around the same price and it has a 1-7 twist barrel, flash hider, AND a bayonet lug?

I just picked up a K2 for $1k, and passed on another one for $1,200.

Why would I pay the same for a inferior rifle with inferior components???

Who wants to be limited to 55 grain ammo? Esp in a SHTF situation where you might have to use whatever is available? Everyone wants a flash hider (hardly see ARs without them by choice), and who WOULDN'T want the ability to accept a bayonet?

Good points...I paid 650 back in the day for my DR but wouldn't take less than that now. Now except for the "inferior components" comment...unless that infers to just the barrel, bayonet, and flash hider. Most every thing else is interchangable.
The flash hider is an easy fix, and the Phanthom style is designed for close combat.

As far as 55g ammo, there is far more of that around than anything else, and my DR will easliy shoot LAP out to about 100 yards. Yeah, it's usless after that, but at what distance do most urban engagements end up in? The average distance for a LE engagement is 30 yards or less. I was thinking my first gen AR-15 was a 1:12 twist, and Viet Vets will tell you they killed a lot of VC and NVA with 55 grain stuff.

Btw...someone here has had a bayonet lug soldered to a DR, so again easy fix. Moses does 1:7 replacements...and I'd rather have a Moses converson than cut a K-2.

These were my two converted DR200 rifles.

I sold this one for $1100 about two months back.
