How much would a M1A1 go for if its not working? I mean I just want to collect it and put it on a platform.

If you are talking about the Thompson, here's half of one for $250(not that those guys would ship it here...)

very dependent on a bunch of parameters.

1. Is it Original?
2. Is it Reproduction?
3. What Make?
4. What Condition?
5. What Parts?
6. What Configuration?
7. What Markings?
8. What History?
9. What Paperwork?
10. Whats Wrong?

Also, you do know that the M1A1 Paratrooper Carbine is an AW in accordance to the features it possesses. (Centerfire, Pistol Grip, Detachable Magazine, Folding Stock, Overall Length)

:D no-no item in CA

Genuine M1A1 Carbines are expensive and sought-after http://auction.odcmp.com/auctions/search.asp?catid=&show=closed&searchtxt=m1a1&searchtype=0&sortpref=price_desc , no one is going to demill a valuable functioning firearm like that. And as mentioned, a functioning M1A1 is illegal in California.

But, there might be another option if you are willing to take on a project. Check out this thread:

He was able to fit a Ruger 10/22 into a standard carbine stock

I haven't seen it done, and it would probably take a little more work, but it should be possible to do the same with a M1A1 stock. Then you would have a legal M1A1 lookalike that shoots (.22LR).

You would need a Ruger 10/22 and a reproduction M1A1 stock, $175 from http://www.sarcoinc.com/m1c.html

I don't think CMP has these yet, and you'd need a good size platform even if they did.
