Israeli Heavy Barrel Parts Kit Values?

Howdy from a newbie,
This is my first post here. I've been reading some when I have time and am learning a lot. I see more FAL varieties than I knew existed! I have an Israeli parts kit and an Imbel receiver I'm considering selling so this should be the place to find a ball park value for it. I don't have photos for it yet, but the barrel and furniture were purchases new. The barrel has almost 1k rounds through it. It's been living in the safe for most of its life. Here's a quick photo. This is a very informative site and I enjoy reading throught it.
thanks.

I'm still debating selling the parts kit and installing a lighter barrel/furniture, or sell/trade the entire outfit (w/10 Izzy mags). It depends on what the market is for kits vs. rifles.

Your kit will bring a premium price, and so will the receiver. The Izzy HB FAL kits run upwards of $800, and the Imbel receiver even used should bring in the range of $400. The whole gun may be worth less togeather than in parts. Others will be along soon to give you a better idea of price, and also offer you a case of beer to take that dangerous gun off your hands for safty reasons. Also your carry handle is on backwards, it should point toward the front of the barrel

Take into consideration if it has all the Israeli marked small parts.
I donít see a bipod limiter?

It does have the limiter and the sling swivels. This photo is a few weeks old. I reinstalled both of them today. I couldn't remember what to call the limiter at the time and I wanted to make sure I could still find them.

This makes me happy! I may have to find it a new home soon!

For the best $$$ I would offer it in the MP or maybe check to see what they have been selling for on gbroker!

If all IZZY parts and if it looks as good in person as the pic you have shown, I am thinking you would do better off as a whole package rather than as a kit!

I haven't been tracking things here lately quite as close, BUT I think $1500 for a complete ALL IZZY HB should fetch over $1500.00

Just my opinion, do more research, BUT don't cut yourself short!

LaC may be close, but I think lately with the economy, the Izzy HB's are closer to the $1100.00 range complete and ready to go with nice park. Parts kits pop up regularly so they tend to stick around the $700.00 to $800.00 range and the receiver around $350.00 to $400.00. With all of that said, I would leave it together for the same price since it will take someone time, headspacing and locking shoulder purchase to build it right back into a kit. Just my .02 cents.

It would be a shame to disassemble that beauty and part it out.
