I looked at them while they were still in business and IIRC they were in the $400-$450 range new.
I assume that Bushmaster will service the Ares models which retail for about $400 too.

Gas Piston Retrofit Conversion Kit
Now you can easily retrofit your AR15 / M4 Type Carbine to add the reliability, ease of maintenance, cooler running, and consistent function of the Gas Piston Operating System that has for years been so successfully used on AKs / FALs, and others. The Bushmaster Gas-Piston Retrofit Conversion Kit is a Patent Pending, short stroke piston conversion system that includes all the necessary parts to convert your gas impingement type carbine. Once installed, there are no more gas rings, gas tubes or hot gases vented into the Receivers of your weapon. Instead, gases are vented under the hand guard, and away from the operator. The high performance Bolt Carrier features increased mass, an integral impact lug and specially designed anti-wear features to protect your receiver. The Bushmaster Gas-Piston Retrofit Conversion Kit is readily installed into your factory Upper Receiver Assembly without permanent modifications to your carbine. You keep your factory receivers, barrel and bolt. The result is a cleaner and more reliable system sure to enhance the overall performance and reliability of your weapon.
Available for either Standard or Heavy Barrel

yeah, the prices have come down considerably! as I see them listed on the pkfirearms.com
for $299 and this ‘Used Kit’ that I’m looking at is going for $210-Shipped so it seems like a pretty fair price, to me.
what do you think?
