View Full Version : replacement cost of L1A1s

Going thru the piles looking at what needs to be insured. Have two L1A1s that need special attention:
1.) Onyx imported L1A1, Lithgow with new New Zealand air force furniture with brass disc. I got this rifle from Paragon back in 1986.
2.) Eden imported L1A1, Lithgow with NOS furiture, S butt stock and short flashider. Got this back in 89/90 time frame.
Both have new barrels.
First, keep as is or part them out. Any thoughts on Value?

when you say new barrels are you saying new lithgow made barrels or new barrels made in the USA

I'd say keep 'em together. They may not have the "intangible" cachet of being Poyers, but for all intents and purposes they're the same thing, save that they weren't assembled in the Antipodes.
