1499$ is what they are selling for brand new at impact guns...
if its NIB its prolly a fair price. used however its a little high. bore condition is everything in a used gun. ive never seen or heard of a used gun that has ever had more than a box of ammo down the pipe... a .30 cal muzzle gage is your best friend in evaluating barrel condition in .30cal rifles.

Do you want a Scout, with it's shorter 18-inch barrel.....or do you want the Standard M1A, with a 22-inch barrel? That looks like a Standard in the photo, but I can't be sure. The price on the Scout is usually a little bit lower than the Standard.
