I would prefer one of the wartime manufacturers H&R, International Harvester or Springfield. Pre '45 barrel and receiver stampings and cartouches would be nice. I will discuss condition of a case by case basis. I would also think about a nice CMP Garand if one came up. You can buy a nice CMP Garand for for around $600, I figure my AR is worth about $800. Like I said in the origonal post I would also be willing to sell the AR straight up for $750 shipped. Let me know if you want pictures.
