I live in California where the price of firearms is much higher than the rest of the country normally. A few years ago I sold numerous DuPage Trading garanda for about 900 to 950 the most recent one I sold was a CMP service grade very nice gun low numbers CMP wood it took me two and a half months to get 900 out of it. And it really doesn't matter if others would spend the money on it like myself it matters how bad you want it and is it worth it to you it's worth it to you to spend 1200 and you won't look back and regret it go for it

4 digits are extremely rare, and you'd be getting CMP papers and a whole rifle out of the deal. Condition means a lot, so if it was sold as a worn and beat up reparked rack grade, you might consider adjusting the price accordingly.

....but that serial number though.... You might not ever see another one come around.

$1,200 would not scare me away.

Good luck
Tony

Sold as recvr or complete rifle? Cmp auctioned complete 4 digits a number of yrs ago and they went $1100-1400ish.

Don't think 1200 is bad if it is nice .

I see the OP mentions a stock and barrel so must be a gun I think

But it could have been sold as stripped recvr and cobbled into rifle in someone's basement.

The first Springfield M1 rifle sent to Winchester for evaluation was a four digit rifle, it was sent and received by Winchester on Sept 19, 1938 that eighty one years ago today.

The serial number is 1607

I would do it all day long for $1,200 unless it was a beater. There were only 9,000 4 digit receivers produced and who knows how many have been lost to time?
