    A great find.

    I admit when I first saw the top half of the initial pic I thought it was a Smithfield ham. They often come in white bags.

    Forget about any book value or Gunbroker comparison.
    That set up is unique.

    Personally my asking price wouldn't start any lower than $5,000 and maybe I'd ask more.

    Unfired. Complete documentation. It's all there as if it was an orginal arms room issue.

    Call one or 2 of the top end auction houses.

    Looks like the rifle my brother-in-law got maybe 15 years ago from the DCM program. You tossed your name in a raffle type deal and if you were picked you could buy one complete just like the one pictured. After seeing what Mike got I tried but never got my name picked. :(

    Really nice! Enjoy it!

    Either late 80's or early 90's the CMP had lotteries on M1D's. It is my recollection that everything sold in the lotteries, like the box, and the sealed components, look like yours.

    I highly recommend never firing the thing .The paperwork adds considerable value because M1D's are not difficult to make. Barrels, scopes have been available for decades, the paperwork shows it is a real GI issue rifle. Without paperwork, who knows.

    My gun club president has built several faux M1D's from parts he accumulated over the years. Has built up a number of faux rifles, including this Marine Sniper. The parts are all real, but the rifle was not assembled till this millennium.

    This was also won in a CMP lottery:

    The owners of these say they will be available once they are pried from their Cold Dead Hands. It will be a great estate sale. :D

    If you'd like to sign a 2 year lease you can keep it at the end of the term.

    Try Elephant and Castle in Ozark, MO. They might be able to help you value it.
