Default My Rockola CMP "G-3" value?

Selling my CMP carbine collection. I purchased all from CMP several years ago. Want to support this forum, not Gunbroker. Need help with a fair present value in order to list on the WTS/WTB carbine forum. This will be first one to go...
CMP ROCKOLA (G-3).. service grade? #4586xxx with CMP tag and box.
Barrel: Undated Rockola. Trigger housing: Rockola
Bolt: (Round) Rockola. Front sight: R. Hammer: BR or KR. Sear: R1
Recoil plate: (*) only, no name that I could see.
Mag release: WA with M or W? Butt plate:?
Slide: Rockola (purchased this separately, it came with P-1). Have no idea if it is correct or type?? Trigger, firing pin...? (I'd never get them back together)
2 rivet handgard...M-U (?) on the underside. No cracks/splits or repairs.
Stock is solid (no cracks/splits/repairs) SA on the underside. ("138" on one side)
I can email pics. Send your requests to azmfink@gmail.com. It is the same condition as I received from the CMP years ago (except for the slide change out)....only stored since then. Thanks.

My thoughts,
A mixed shooter grade non import $ 800 to $850. Being a nice 4.59 Rock-Ola, with CMP papers, add $150 to $200. For the Rock-Ola parts add $150 to $200. SA stock, less $ 50.
It should sell for about, $1,150 shipped.

The bore and muzzle condition are very important to most buyers. If not great, they will lessen the value quite a bit. No one wants to have to look for another barrel.

It hasn't been fired since receiving it from CMP. Just admired it, then put it away. At the time CMP was selling this group of M1 carbines, I believe the barrels had to gauge at a certain muzzle wear to be qualified as a CMP service grade, and field grades gauged at more wear.... Is that correct? The barrel looks in very good shape, but I'm no expert....

Service grade or G-3 are supposed to have muzzle wear less than 3.

Yes! However, I love the M1 carbines...I guess others do to. Had so many emails and pic requests, it was hard to respond in a timely fashion. Of course it being a Rock-Ola didn't hurt. Hate to let the carbines go....at least it's better to see them go to CMP supporters. IBM (with Underwood barrel), pretty much a CMP mixmaster, to go next. Thanks for the help.
