Default Fair price for Russian Red furniture?

Looking to sell my Russian Red furniture set I have. Not sure what the market is on these? It's really deep red and the lower handguard has a factory "patch" job on it. And the handguards and grip have some dings and wear.

Not sure if it's be better to split them up or what?
Thanks.

It can really vary depending on what kind of wood it is, the finish on it, condition, whether it's laminated etc. For example the Russian Red laminated stocks from Boyd's that Atlantic uses are easily worth 125-175$, but Boyd's has some rather pricey stocks in general as I think they use pretty high grade walnut for their stocks and I've heard they do a few things to the wood to make it more durable.

The dings and chips on the finish will ofcourse lower the value, but I'd say 100$ wouldn't be an unfair price, maybe a bit more or less depending on the aforementioned variables.

Gonna need someone a bit more knowledgeable on wood to chime in :P

It was worth a shot

But I AM in the market for exactly this right now, so... We'll see where he falls on it.

Doh! I think I misunderstood, I thought OP was saying Russian-Red as in just the color, not as in it's a red stock set from Russia, lol. My bad!

$100.00 is a fair price on that.

If you want to rid yourself of them, Id be happy to cover shipping. Ive been thinking about swapping out the WASR furniture that I refinished and I wouldnt mind putting some work into a laminate set.
