Considering that the street price of new "blued 'n wood" Mini-14 has climbed to over $700, I'd guess that asking $500 for an older used one wouldn't be out of line.

"Street price" Ugh. I am sure you mean "store price".

I agree $500-ish for a used/fired gun. The downside to such guns is the likiehood that someone used cheapo steel-cased or corrosive ammo...
Used but as-new essentially unfired might go $600-ish. Cash talks.

Aint no "essentualy unfired", or "LNIB".....it's either been fired or it aint. and it's still NIB or it aint.
I don't know of any "corrosive" .223 or .556 ammo that's been marketed in the USA, be it Russian or otherwize.

Me thinks that the OP has neen rather straight forward in his assesment of the gun in question. Perhaps you should give some thought to addressing any further fears and speculations which you may have to him via PM......Oh wait, nevermind...you aint wanting to buy his rifle anyway, are you?
