Questions on Century L1A1 sporter inch receiver

I have inherited four CIA L1A1 Sporter inch receivers stamped Made in USA. After some research, they may be made by Dan Coonan and marketed by Century. They still have the Century Plastic tags on them . They have not been used in a build and appear new. I own an Argie FAL build and am not interested in them . Do you have any suggestions on where to sell these and will they sell? I know they have to be shipped to a FFL from a FFL . What would a good asking price be? The person I got these from had a nice collection but he never did a build with these receivers. He got sick and now I have them. Thanks for any information.

They are out of spec receivers, that Century dumped on the market about 5-6 years ago. They were even out of spec for Century, so they are not a beginners project.

Here is my thread on them:

Also, we initially though they were made by DCI (Dan Coonan's old company), but more evidence supported that theory to be wrong.

Actually, the inch lug was hitting on the concave of the slot (it was too shallow). I was able to use Inch Mags by extending the concave of the slot in both directions. Again, not a beginners project.

Surprisingly, the Korea metric mags which are too tight for inspec metric receivers work like a charm on this receiver.
