    A couple years ago, a buddy I served with gave me a couple bags of M1 Garand parts. As far as I can tell, the only things that are missing are the receiver, stock, op rod, barrel. There are enough parts for it looks like two rifles. The stamps on the trigger groups and bolt assemblies are SA and HRA. He came upon them when he was stationed in MC Barracks DC and the armor was just going to dump the parts...I think they may have come off of drill rifles? As far as I can tell, the bolts, gas nuts/tube (sorry if I'm getting the nomenclature wrong) have no carbon or residue on them so I'm thinking they've never been on a rifle that was actually fired.

    My question is, how much is this stuff worth? :confused:

    I would suggest you look at a few online retailers like Fulton Armory, Ammo Garand and others to get an idea of what some of the parts are going for. Prices can vary quite a bit for general parts. That without getting into some of the older more sought after parts to make older rifles correct. Just depends on what you have. Also parts from places like Fulton Armory are generally higher than can be found at a good large gun show.

    I figure it this way, any part on any given day is worth what someone is willing to pay, no more and no less.

    If you come up with a price for the lot I may be interested. Just post exactly what you have and asking price.

    Thanks for the reply. I entertained maybe selling or trading them for a good ak parts kit. I mostly just want to figure out what exactly I have and what it's worth.

    IMO you are better off selling them as a parts kit instead of selling by the piece
    Put them on Gunbroker
