Only problems I've encountered was that you attack so fast sometimes that you waste not energy than you need. Real numbers are always nice to have. It is important to pay attention to the next set of upcoming vaulted items listed below and farm them before they get retired. For that reason, I think that grinding up the perfect riven for a second rate weapon could be highly worthwhile. Popularity is basically god when it comes to pricing, but you can mostly stick to the tier list and make heuristics exceptions. It took me 357 cores that were mostly uncommon to max it out.
Once I get time I will try to put all these changes into the format everyone knows and loves here. A, B, C rotations can be rather confusing in the order they are granted. I go to the tier list you mentioned all the time. Technically, rivens can be dissolved. However, it is not as straight forward as it might appear. I agree that selling veiled is probably better most of the time. I would also emphasize that it isn't worth rolling rivens for sale or, as a buyer, paying extra for great rolls until you are dealing with great weapons, with Rivens selling for at least twice the veiled price.
Odds are it's worth less unveiled, but there is a chance it's rth much more. The strong rivens I have, I got for cheap or only rolled a few times. But as I said, you kind of need a steel fiber for it and maxing a 10 rank mod is a bi of a pain even a common one.

First the idea that its worth what people will pay may be true, but its also worth what people will sell it for. I have a couple of thoughts. A couple minor things I have a quibble with: I would switch prices on the rifle and pistol mods. Hysteria maybe, but If you have the right mods it's a great weapon for Valkyr against grineer.
I think damage, multisthot, and crit damage with a negligible downside would be what people call god tier for this weapon, and would fetch easily 300. That adds up to hundreds of plat. Rifle rivens are the biggest gamble as they have a large pool with a huge range in worth.
