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 .

Thank you sir
Yea she is rough I know with some weapons you should never restore them would i be better off to have this one worked on?

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 .
