L1A1 on Eden Intl receiver Lithgow Aussie

Hello guys,
Back in the early 90's I bought an Eden Lithgow receiver and had it assembled on a British kit by a gunsmith. It came out beautiful.
Over the years I ran maybe 3 mags total and put her away.
I am now thinking of selling. I know these are scarce and I'd appreciate some guidance on prices if possible.
Thank y'all

On Gunbroker, for somebody who know's what it's worth, the receiver would run a minimum of $2k. The kit, if it's decent, $600-750 I would say. Others may disagree, but I'd say the parts would be more valuable than the whole.

My advice, as always, is worth exactly what you paid for it.

This one sold in the MP 2.5 years ago. It’s dated but I don’t see them pop up for sale often. I hope this helps and I’m sure others will chime in and provide more accurate information.

All good advise on your L1A1. I hope it is advertised here in "market place" if your decision to sell holds true. Will give all of the L1A1 people something to worry about..............
