I am thinking of selling my M1A and wanted to know a reasonable price for it. It has about 1000 rds thru it, some wear and tear, SS Barrel and std 10 round mag. I'll try and post pictures tomorrow.

Thanks for the help.

If it's a Springfield Armory Inc. M1A National Match model, then $1400-$1500 is probably a fair price.

They go for about $1800 new for the SA Inc NM model with the SS barrel. Even with 1K rounds in the barrel, I can't imagine the value of the rifle would go down beyond 20%.

But of course, you have guys who'll always try to lowball you no matter what price you list. The true monetary value is what someone is will to pay you for it.

Dont know where you got yours from, but it runs at least 2k at most shops new with the SS barrel.

Ok, sorry. The cheapest I could find is Bud's Gun Shop at $1875 shipped.

After tax and Dros and transfer, still looking at 2k.

The other factor you have to consider is that with the AR15 having taken over HP several years ago due to lower cost for rifles, maintenance, and ammo, the NM M1A is going to be more difficult to move.

The $2000 spent on a NM M1A could have purchased a NM AR15 and two more barrels and the tools to rebarrel the rifle yourself.

Don't get me wrong. The M14 platform is still an excellent and nostalgic firearm.

Very true. The wood stock M1a is just a beautiful rifle though. Much more so than the AR.

I traded mine in for $1,500.00 a month ago. Had it for about 1 year, put about 1K rounds through it. It sold in under 1 week.

$1400-1500

This is probably in the ballpark since it has 1K rounds through it. It may fetch more if it has USGI parts.

1400-1600 (it will move REAL fast at 1400 for the NM stainless barrel model). Is the bedding still intact?
