I say #2 too, only because I'm 10 minutes away from you and would like to buy #1. Let me know on that.
Well, #2 is preban early serial number(number 1 is postban but not by much). But mostly because of the SAK barrel it has,it's very uncommon.
I'm pretty good with M1A's and I'm really only 10 minutes away.I'm off west 130th in between I-480 and I-71,right accross from West end lumber. I PM'ed you with my number.
