price check on an ihc

Hello all

Yesterday I was at a ma and pa type shooting and bait store and saw in the corner an M1. I asked to see it and was told it was not for sale. With a few follow up quetions the owner said it might be for sale and if he did sale it, it would be at least $1500. The owner said that is what someone offered him 2 years ago but he would not sell it. The owner said he had various M1s and this was his last and he wanted to hang on to it.

I asked if I could look it over and he said fine.

I did not get the ser. number but it was an IHC, with a IHC bolt and LMR barrel. The stock looked great, as if the whole rifle would be a correct grade if sold through the CMP. The stock did have the circle P and the DOD acceptance stamp.

Question. With the above discription would an IHC be wroth in good shape $1500

The ower did not seem to know what he is sitting on, so I would love to save the cash and go offer him 1500.

I wish I had the time to look over the rifle more, the rest of the people in my party pulled me out of the store to go to the range.

It seems a rusted out piece of crap with IHC stamped on it is worth ~$1,200 these days from what you described I would say it is worth $1,500 pretty easily.

It looks like IHC prices are keeping up with gas prices.

If it's a Gap Letter or Arrowhead.....get out of my way. Seriously, $1500 might be high depending on correctness or rareness.

Ya, it could very well be a mix master but boy did it look great. I would love to have spend another 10 min with it. Next week I may go back, its hard because he does not want to sell so to ask to take it apart...not sure, see what i can do.
