People can say what they want about the Blue Book.....but.....there is actual worth, and then theres what someone is willing to pay on Gunbroker. Auctions will always bring the highest price. Just because someone is willing to pay $1600.00 for one doesn't mean thats what they are worth. Of course in your case if you are wanting to sell it, you will be looking to get top dollar for it.
