Should I fix or sell for parts

A while ago a friend gave me a nova that was leaking out of the sight rail screw. I was too lazy to fix it then and am still pretty lazy but I was thinking I should have it as a backup or loaner. Will this be a pain to fix or should I sell it? Whats a good asking price for a leaky nova?

If it's a Nova 700, the sight rail leak is usually the easiest fix ever. Loosen the sight rail screw (don't remove), gas up and fire until it stops leaking. Tighten the screw. And it's fixed! Very common problem with the 700.

They will charge for parts only. Probably just an o-ring or two unless it's missing something. The only real change to the Nova was an upgrade to the regulator. I'm not including the Super because it's a different series marker.
