Well you can build your own for cheaper than that so it depends on what kind of upgrades this thing has as well as the brand name. If it's a homebuilt unless he had a gold plated gen 4 nightvision scope on it I'd pass at 900. If it's an Olympic Arms plinker model and he wants 900 for it then don't even bother.

Since he's your friend and if you are willing to pay 900 for it I'd get him to let me shoot it. Take some wolf .223 and other cheap ammo and see how it feeds. If it eats the cheap stuff it's reasonable to believe it will eat the good stuff.

A brand name would help in knowing the value.

You can sink alot of money into upgrading an AR. You need to know what 'upgrades' have been added to it.

Keep in mind (as macho stated) you can build alot cheaper them you can buy. Check out Model 1 Sales to see what I mean.

You also need to know if it is chambered in 5.56 or .223 Rem. There is a slight difference.
