I was just curious what the value of this gun is? It is a .30 cal m1a in excellent condition considering how old it is. It couldn't have been shot too many times b/c rifling is in excellent condition as well as the action, stock and barrel finish. I don't know the term for the finish of the barrel b/c its definetly not blued, it looks more like powder coat. I got it from a friend of the family who is a WWII veteran. He moved and did not want the hassle transporting this gun cross state lines.
