I recently got a nice 2.4M WRA with original WRA barrel, a very nice USGI DoD stock that I traded for a WRA/GHD stock... WRA op rod, clip latch, bolt and lockbar sights, for $1300 shipped, and I thought that was a great price. Only major non-WRA part was the gas cylinder. Stock even had a 2S buttplate! So yeah, to have found one for nearly 1/2 that price would've been a dream.

Armslist has been notorious for scammers the past several years. There have been 2 occasions I contacted the website over finding pics of the gun for sale on another website. Any really good deal I assume is a scam on there now until proven otherwise. Usually you can tell by ridiculously cheap prices such as this instance. They'll always be the cheapest option listed. Just be careful.

Fwiw if you were building a WRA there's a WRA receiver for $675 or a WRA receiver and barrel (alone) for over $1k on GB right now. I bought an excellent condition WRA trigger group by itself for $200. A bolt complete is $100. I have over $1k in my build and I don't have a receiver or barrel yet. To give u an idea. Hths.

There were far fewer WRAs made than Springfield's so they're somewhat prized a little more by collectors. Whether it be parts or complete rifles WRA comes with about a 20% premium or more over Springfield stuff in my limited experience. And you'd be hard pressed to find any decent Springfield complete for $1k on the aftermarket.
