WTK: the resale value of my para

So I have a conundrum...

With a lot of thought I have decided to sell/trade my para FAL. In another thread I spoke of a crummy cheek weld. I've thought of getting a cheek riser to try to remedy this. I guess the decision was pushed through being a bit bitter for saving and saving(I have an extremely limited budget to fund my hobby), then buying the parts. With the help of member genethepoolcleaner she was built and dialed in, she runs like a sewing machine. It's just not fun to shoot. The last couple range trips she stays in the safe and the Rhodie comes out.

Imbel gl reciever, Imbel bbl cut 17.2" and recrowned 11degrees, aim sports key mod HG, DSA para lower and railed top cover, HTS FN or Imbel(i cant remember), inch selector switch, folding charging handle, three prong FH, Imbel PG, nos argy carrier, minty r4 sling.

Since funds are limited I figure this is the best way to get into a nice bolt gun in 308 or m1a. I was looking to get into a scout set up for pig and deer in my AO.

I cant post pictures(usually Huey or The Chief helps with that).

Thanks for help


Mods, if this is in the wrong section I apologize...

Another semi-auto or bolt gun?

Guys, Did you read his whole thread? He say's he already has a Rhodie Fal. I'd say get rid of the Para for say 1400.00 to 1500.00 and buy a nice used M1A or Bolt gun for even less and decent optic's unless you already have some.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Yeah, yeah.... correct hand guard.

This was my attempt at modernizing my FAL.

I think it turned out well. I just don’t like the way it fits me.

I may just put a standard lower on ‘er and an xl stock and be done with it.
