I was wondering if you can give me insight on DDA 15B 00528

This answer was rated:

Hi I was wondering if you can give me insight on DDA 15B 00528 Multi Cal.?
JA: The Firearms Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you have the firearm's serial number or barrel code?
Customer: Not at this time
JA: Do you know how old the firearm is? What condition is it in?
Customer: good condition but unable to tell you year. I know the logo imprint is a bulldog and the DDA is for Devil Dog Arms
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Firearms Appraiser should know?
Customer: I can send pictures

Hi! I'm Jim, a firearms expert here at Just Answer. There's a number of variations to a DDA 15B....are there any other letters after the 15B?

Do you have the original box?

I have listings for a 15B-BRP, CRP, DMRP, ERP, MRP, TRP and ORTHROS S. Do any of those sound familiar?

OK...thank you for the photos. I am not finding anything in my references so let me opt out. Another expert can then step in here to assist you.

My name is Philip - let me see if I can figure out what configuration you have...

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Thank you Philip

 

 

OK - that should be the Model DDA-15B-ERP.

 

Info:

 

5.56 NATO cal., 16 in. HP profile barrel with black Nitride finish and DDA Tri-Comp tactical muzzle brake, 3D billet lower and A4 flat-top upper receiver, M4 feed ramp, Geissele ALG defense trigger, DDA 13 in. aluminum free float octagon HEX or KeyMod handguard, Magpul MBUS polymer flip-up sights, Magpul CTR 6-pos. buttstock, Magpul MOE rubberized pistol grip, hardcoat anodized finish in black or FDE, 7 lbs. 9 oz. Discontinued in 2015. Manufacturer based in Lake Zurich, Illinois and not in business after 2015.

 

In 90% to 95% condition is it worth from $495 to $600, NOT including the optic or case.

 

I hope this helps.

 

To close out this question (if you have no more questions on that gun), please rate my answer with the "stars" at the top of the window - thanks!

Oh wow so its definitely not worth 1400 with the hard case, 3 mags and current optics?

Optics can be expensive, but I don't know what is on there. Magazines would be worth around $15 to $30 a piece, depending. The finish looks to be 90% to 95%. If it was a higher percentage, the value would go up to maybe $850.

It would be worth $1,275 without the scope and brand new/unfired. Just to give you a point of reference.

Any other questions on that gun?

No sir Philip thank you for your help sir

is DDA a good company that makes guns?

DDA is now out of business and has been since 2015. They made good guns. They went under partly because their owner claimed to be a Marine, when he wasn't.
