Question Does anyone recall the price of the unissued Grarands?

I recall the unissued SA and HRA's were about $4000.00, I am correct on this?

They all were auctioned right?

Thanks up front!

Nope they were not all auctioned. At the GCA convention of 2009 held at the CMP in Anniston they allowed the 200 or 250 members at the convention to buy the unissued rifles at $3200 if I remember correctly. At least that is what I recall reading from some of the members who were there at the time. Those who did attend can correct me if I'm in error.

Thought it was closer to 2500 honestly.

There are posts around.

Found this discussion. Good info here.

It was $3000. How distinctly I remember. 'Twas in the bleak October when each separate dying ember wrought it's ghost upon the floor.

I was at the GCA meeting in Anniston where these were sold. $3000 is the price I remember. I didn't buy one but bought other rifles on that trip. What a memory to sort through all those rifles.

What I remember of the auctions on these is that many sold in the $5000 range but what they will bring on the open market is probably less than the magic CMP auction price.

That's very true, the fellow has one now for $5000.00, just still too much for me. I don't feel it is worth it to me to put that much on one.
