I have a legitimate, barn find US Army Issue M1 2.35 inch  Bazooka,  I first saw in in the early 1980's it was hanging in a man cave in a barn.  Last year I reached out to the family of the man who had it and was able to buy it.  I summited  paper work to the ATF and was able to get it registered, I have ATF paper work on it and it is uncut, it is not pretty and is showing its age, but from what I  can tell it is in original condition.   What I don't know is what is it worth?   Any suggestions?

I have a minty M9A1 up for sale at $6500 . Yours is earlier , rarer , but much rougher . I'd guess at upwards of $4000 .

You are correct in that firearms, generally, should not be restored.  My personal opinion is that this is a different situation.   This bazooka is more like a car, than a gun.  It was painted originally, and is pretty rusty.  The wood needs some serious attention.  I think restoration could do well for it.  

 

Anyone have a different opinion?

I would take steps to stop further destruction , but beyond that , I'd leave it to the new owner to decide .
