Springfield Armory M1A black synthetic stock, hooded rear sight national match, NM leather sling, 3 GI mags, 5 USA mags, original box, manuals, both sight protectors, Dewey cleaning rod, Creedmoor orange plastic bolt protector for cleaning, BTW never fired just a safe queen. Looking to trade with an FFL dealer and get some input as to value.....

Pre or post-ban? Does it have any GI parts? Both of these would make it more desirable.

Post ban, all original parts except for the NM hooded rear sight.

Here's a suggestion.

Go to www.GunBroker.com and find one that looks like yours and price it accordingly.

You should keep in mind that a dealer can also buy the same rifle at a lower price (I'd say about $100.00-$200.00).

Prices on GunBroker would be closer to $100.00 difference because of competition to sell.

You buy at retail, but sell (trade-in) at wholesale. I doubt you'll get $800 on a trade-in unless the dealer is wildly inflating the price of what you're buying.

Thanks Chuck I sorta get the feeling that I am a lamb on the way to slaughter.......

See what you can get for the rifle here before trading it. This is a popular rifle. You may want to sell the rifle with 1 magazine and keep out the other parts for separate sale. Extra parts are often considered "fluff" (despite what you paid for 'em).
