Micromag gen 5 LE value

A working gun. Without the VASA. What ballpark are we looking at?

Looks like a classic valve and RT single trigger frame.

Found one on the local CL and wondering is it's worth grabbing.

- LE = anodizing pattern? (most important for value)
- Automag "Classic" valve or stainless steel "Micromag" valve?
- ball detent okay and working?

No VASA hurts but more than made up being a vert feed Gen5.

Maybe $300+

Black anno, bad cell phone pick. Best guess is a Micromag branded valve.

I'll know more when I look at it Sunday.

With Micromag valve and a matching frame, black anno in excellent shape, no missing or stripped screws, matching barrel, clear lasering on the valve, $275 max. Offer much less on a Craigslist ad....

If the frame is an RT, it isn't a match, drop $50 off the price. No matching Armson barrel, drop another $30.

This is only because it is a Gen 5, any other Gen (with black anno) I wouldn't go over $200...

UPDATE

So it's got some rub marks/light scratches. Definitely been played with and left in a box with "stuff" for quite some time. Held air when I aired it up, shot it and it started leaking so it's going to need a little TLC.

Does have a Benchmark RT single trigger frame and what looks like a stock Armson riffled barrel.
Cool little find.

I'll get them tomorrow. I got home late last night so I didn't get a chance to do it.

It was part of a lot in which when I asked to see pictures of the "Automag RT" I was told something to the affect of sure but it's just an old gun the Spyders are the good guns in the lot.

Still dirty but lubed and working as it should. This really did turn out to be a bit of a rescue, it's definitely a players gun not a wall hanger. Bottom picture is the one they sent me before I bought it posted because I was foolish and didn't get a picture of the whole thing when I was taking the pictures.

Looks good. I wanted to know what people called gen 5. I really only think of these in three gens. Integrated barrel original, normal second gen, and late centerfeed type.
