I cant Believe What the Springfield Armory M1A's are Selling For Now,I Just Purchased My 1st M1A about 2 Months Ago for 1340.00 and was wanting to get another,now the Same Gun,just the Basic going for 22 to 2300.00,I think for That Kind of Money I will get Croc to Build me a Barreled Action,I am almost Positive I will be just as Happy,not that I think there is anything wrong with Springfields.
My local shop had one for 1700. sold quick . J and G has well used ones for 2200 and they havent sold out in a month plus. At the gunshow I attended 3 weeks ago they were going for 2200 to 2800. About the same on gunbroker
At this point its worth whatever it can be bought for.
I paid $1625.00 for my loaded with synthetic stock about a month ago seen a socom I I going for $2800.00 at a gun show a week ago. It's a sellers market everything is crazy righ now and I don't see it letting up.
I paid $1600 for a SAI Standard a couple of weeks ago. I had to wait a month for it to get to my lgs. A few days later, I saw the same gun for sale at a gun show for $1900. The guy had two of them. They both sold for his asking price within half an hour.
It isn't prices from SAI, it is the prices being set by the local GS and market.
Locally, I see SKS going from $500 to some jackass trying to sell his hens teeth rare Chinese SKS.
Another guy is trying to sell his standard for $4k.
Be patient, as I see prices for ARs coming down. A month ago DPMS oracles were going for $1800. Now they are $1200.
We went to the Buria and Madina shows near Cleveland yesterday looking for Garand wood and 9 mm reloading fodder,wife wanted a 9 in Feb. late to the party. Anyway the prices are through the roof and the only thing I came home with was 1500 rounds of brass. I did see 2 Norinco's for around 1600 or there abouts. The only deal was a GI glass stock for 60 but like I said was looking for Garand wood or I would have picked it up for the M1A. I guess I'll get a stock from the CMP. Dan
