Stihl MS 280 CBQ

I know this isn't the right site for this, but the traffic on TreeServiceSite has been slow lately...What I'm wondering is....I have a used Stihl MS280 CBQ that is a few years old that is in mint condition. I have cleaned it after almost every use and looks brand new. I have two bar sizes for it a 16 with a couple chains and a 20" with a couple chains. This saw has the toolless chain tensioner and safety blade break that will stop the chain in under 1 sec for safety. It is a 55cc saw that cranks out 3.6bhp and weighs about 12 lbs. If i remember correctly I paid a hair over $500 for the saw...I think like $525 or so. I really like the saw, and of course there is nothing wrong with the saw, but I'm wanting to get an MS 261 if possible. What could I reasonably expect to get for this saw selling it privately? $275-$300ish?

Sounds about right. I suggest you throw it up on the classifieds here with a couple of pictures and it will probably be gone in less than a week.

I have a close friend that might buy it, (wouldn't have to worry about shipping since he lives closeby) but if he doesn't I'll probably go that route, along with craigslist.
