Honestly, they look like shit. As grider said, in more hopeful phrasing; where did you get them?

Anyone with basic welding knowledge could put those together. They look good enough to practice on in the back yard..... I'd guess $150 a pop for someone that cares.... Scrap metal for someone that doesn't.

Last week it was a one post guy asking if he could buy weed at whistler, this week it's a one post guy trying to sell stolen rails! What is this forum coming too!?!

Honestly, the tube steel, a chop saw, and some time with a welder = $100-200 a rail at the most. I'm sure companies charge way more for the ones typically used at resorts, but these will be engineered to handle the loads applied to them (otherwise if they failed and resorts got sued, they'd have nothing to go on)...

I'm thinking $25 ea
those would have to be local pick up, not worth shipping
Our guys also weld up their own during the summer

I know that it is easy to weld one up i have done it on a couple of occasions, but this is first post and he is trying to sell rails and did not give a specific price and it is a little suspicious.

Plus the pics look like it's in someones yard, which is fine but also indicates these may just be re-purposed hand rails from a construction site.
