    How much is G1 Blaster's gun. Is it really worth the $20 or $19 I see on e-bay completed auctions?

    thanks

    It's just a lump of old plastic, so objectively no, of course not.
    Depends how much you want it to complete your figure, that's where the value lies.

    I'm selling and I want to be fair but at the same time I don't want to get taken.

    Depends on how fast you want to sell it. About a year ago, I listed one with a BIN of $13. That listing lasted only a few hours. I'd say anything in the $13-18 is a fair price. With what I know now, I'd price it at $16 for a BIN listing. You could go the regular auction route, but you never know where it will go.

    ~$20 is what it can go for if you list it fixed price and let it run indefinitely. It could take days, weeks, months, etc to get a sale since every other seller is trying to get this amount too, and it clearly isn't the price every buyer wants to pay, otherwise they would all be sold.

    The lone ended regular auction listing was bid up to $14.49. This is a better representation of what buyers actually want to pay for the gun, and a price likely get you a faster sale.

    Yeah, like he said. If you go for the $18-20, you may have to sit on it for a long time. Those fees can add up real fast.

    Darkov is the way to go. Unfortunately I purchased an original one before he began making repros.

    Umm, guys, he's looking to sell one, not buy one. So Darkov's repros are irrelevant here.
