Default NPM M1 carbine, import mark price check

I may have an opportunity to pick this up but was really looking for the experts input first. Don't have any pics yet and the only info I have is that it is a NPM with a ARL ORD ARLINGTON VA marked barrel. Please let me know what you think a good price would be. I will update info as a get it.
Thanks

Import mark will reduce value, but need more details on condition, condition, condition.

Yes, Blockhead is correct. Need more details. I purchased a NPM with no import markings last month for $550 out the door, so if the barrel and all other parts look good, then you may be looking in the $500-600 range, but that all depends on condition. I think I was very lucky on my find though. It seems most USGI (depending on manufacture) non-imports are going in the $650-$900 range.

Below is the thread where I asked advice on pricing of mine. Maybe some of the pics and information might help the OP.

The mag release has a M stamp and the barrel band has IS stamp, the stock has P-U stamp on it and the receiver is a National Postal**Meter.

also the seller does not fell as though it is a import, but everything I read the Arlington ordnance Virginia stamp is an import mark.
