Well, if you wanted to piece it together:

Sanyo 4912: $180
2 perlicks @ $35 ea: $70
New 5 lb CO2 tank and regulator: $100-120 (Cheaper used)
Hoses, fittings, etc: $20-30

So it's about $400 worth of stuff (new). So you're paying $50-ish for the DIY stuff that was done, and getting used equipment.

If you're a good DIY'er and bargain hunter, prolly not a great deal. If you want a turnkey solution, not bad.

Yeah. I think I'd want to pay like 300 for that setup. I am very much the DIY type and always looking for a good deal, so I think I'll hold off. I did offer him 300 bucks, so we'll see.

You forgot to add in the cost of a tower, which runs anywhere from 100 - 130.
