    Thats what I keep thinking. Loaded M1a's go for ~$1800 right now. Plus it has 4 20 rd mags. Then I could sell the DMPS for probably $600-700? What do century arm FALs go for?

    That is a pretty solid deal.

    I have no idea what Century FALs go for. Are those inch or metric?

    In my experience people who type that bad are usually sketchy as hell.

    That deal seems too good to be true. If it weren't all weird manufacturers I'd say it was SGP.

    DMPS seems to be the popular brand of AR in Indiana for whatever reason. Every gun store & every gun show has a ton of em.

    Again. I just want the friggin Loaded M1a. I'm gonna try to get him to part with just it and he can find someone else to buy the other two guns.

    there's just lots of DPMS out there in general in my experience

    buying all of it and then liquidating the DPMS and FAL for 10% under what the last one you found sold ocally went for would probably defer 65-70% of the cost of the M1A

    So based on his email address, he lives around 1 1/2 hours from my house. If he ever emails me back I think I'm gonna jump on this. Plus there's a gun show this weekend so I could sell the FAL & the DMPS immediately...

    Look at the fal feed ramps.

    If it has a unibrow, expect it to be worth about 500 dollars.

    If the fal says "Made in USA" and Century on the side, figure it to be worth about 500-600 dollars.

    If the fal says "Made in Brazil" and has Imbel on the side, its more of a 800 dollar gun.

    The Made in USA Century fals were the ones with Hesse receivers and were quite often, garbage.

    Thanks. I was wondering all the differences.

    I'm trying to get this dude to get back to me I figure if I sell the AR & the fal and get ~$1200 total, I'll be happy. Sure, if I get more than that, it'd be great.
