Default Polytech Legend Folder

I have a Polytech Legend Underfolder that I'm not sure how to price for sale. I want to sell it at a fair price. Hopefully someone here can help me sort this out:

1) Condition: The rifle looks like it has not been fired, but I don't know for sure. I am the second owner. The original owner said it was not fired. It has been handled some, but is like new. The original sling was put on it. It has been cleaned (original cosmoline is gone). The folder has been opened and closed and I can tell by the hammer face that the carrier has been racked at least a couple of times. It has bond colored wood.

2) Packaging: The styrofoam is original, but the box is not. How much does this reduce the price? It has all of the original plastic bags that contents came in.

3)Contents: It has everything that came with it. All three mags are the correct 3 hole, flat back, chrome follower type. They are new, but have scratches only where they have been locked into the rifle. It has the bayonet (with a darker colored handle) with sheath, instruction manual, gas port scraper tool, cleaning kit, oil bottle. All of these are like new, except that the sling has been attached to the rifle.

So my question is, where do I set the price for an almost new rifle (possibly un-fired but gently handled, in the mostly original packaging?

I want to list it as accurately as possible at a fair price. What do you guys say?

It will only go up in value. But easily over 2k.

If you Gunbroke her, have a minimum bid (reserve) for heaven's sake!

Would need to look at the $1,200 auction to see what the problem was, other than a dearth of bidders or a bad description.

The unit you describe and own should be a top notch item!

It was at a local store. Internet prices are always higher.

Ask for 1 million dollars with your pinky finger held up to your mouth like Dr. Evil. I'm sure some retard will pay it because its made in China.

It did sell lightning quick. Probably could have gotten more.

Does it look like mine below? I'm the original owner. Bought it back in the mid 1990's.

Yep, that's it. But it had the muzzle nut instead of the slant brake and the grip was checkered. The wood was more blond.
