View Full Version : Price check on M1A NM

September 21, 2005, 09:41 AM
Looking to possible sell my M1A NM at the next gun show to pay for some version or another of an AR-10. Have it set up pretty well so I can provide targets with a few different types of ammo that it regularly shoot 3/4 to 1.25 MOA with. Not sure how many rounds are down it as I am not the first owner, didn’t get it until a SFC in service (90) had his wife run his truck without oil for a few miles. Of course as the unit armorer I helped bail him out by buying his S&W Mod 29 and this M1A he used for match shooting for $600.00. Unit has been maintained well, but has been used in the field so there is most of the finish on the rifle but a little rust showing up in a few arias. Looking for input on what I can expect to get for it if I do. It has the following.

Mil synthetic stock finished with black spray grit (underlying black epoxy finish) and matching hand guard.

All Mil parts done to NM standard with pre ban (SN 5 digit early 80"s?) SA rec.

9 Mags, all US military issue and refinished matt black with either alum Hyde 2 or gunkote.

A.R.M.S. #18 late model mount with #22 high throw rings.

SA 1st gen Government model scope with butler creak flip up scope covers and kill flash.

Metal and rubber butt pads.

Harmonic dampener.

New black leather sling.

Blackhawk Cheek rest.

2 mercury recoil reducers.

I've seen them going for between $1100 and $1800 depending on condition, etc. Match rifles usually don't have the synthetic mil stock--there's not a lot of room to work with when you bed it.
