    L39A1 rise in value?

    I was watching the auction below with some interest. I like to keep tabs on the value of these as time goes by. I was surprised at the closing price for this one. Seems that only a year or so ago, you could pick one up for about half of the final selling price.

    I noticed the non-matching bolt and the added cheek piece and thought it would hurt the value. Seems like the bidders didn't seem to care.

    Just wanted to see if anyone else had any thoughts or if I was missing something. Gives me the warm fuzzies seeing these bringing good money as I have a few and am very happy with their purchase prices. Wasn't that long ago I was buying a few of these at less than $1500 a piece.

    Thanks,

    Brian B

    unfortunately I couldn't open the link on my computer (it's out of date Apple); but I think it's normal that the prices for the L39A1 will go up.
    I believe they only made around 1280 of these, and seeing what the L42's are fetching. The L39 has been great value for quite a while.

    I would think that the L39s would be rare in the USAicon; so possibly more expensive than in the UKicon.
