Downsizing C&Rs for a big purchase

Alright, I have come upon a dilemma that many of you all may have experienced at least once in your life. I am considering making a rather big purchase and need funds for it. However, the only reasonable way to get funding in my current situation is to downsize my collection. So, here I am now, going to throw all you guys a bone. The following firearms are on my list to be downsized so far:

K-31 with 260+ rounds of Swiss Surplus (need to count it out)
Spanish M1943 de-mil that needs a barrel (original Milsurp barrel for replacement provided)
Mismatched M1914 rifle in .303 with the Weedon Stock Repair.
Type 53 Mis-match in a tiger-striped stock. Bolt needs extractor and sights tuning (fires fine).

I may come up with more stuff later but this is the short list. The eventual goal is to divest 2,500. I'll leave the guessing as to what has me jumping to you guys. As for pictures I don't have the time right now, but I can provide them at a later date. I'm free all tomorrow for anyone who wants to look into these items and preview them, so long as you agree to meet in Harford County. As for pricing, that can be discussed.

How was the M1943 de-milled? Was the barrel plugged?

Do you have an idea of how much you'd like for the K31?

Also... care to share with the group what you're saving up for?

I would like 450 for just the K-31. It's in excellent condition and comes with the brass barrel cover. No troop tag sadly (I checked). The M1943 was de-milled by drilling three holes through the barrel. It will need to be rebarreled, no question. It's a gunsmith special but I gave a M1943 barrel in great condition from Numrich to swap on. As for what I am aiming for, I told you guys to guess! It's around 2,500 so that gives you a good idea . As for the K-31 ammo, I am think $1 a round ATM as that stuff is great, reloadable, and non-corrosive.

Maybe posting in the Classifieds may get you a bigger pool of potential buyers......

Maybe 30-40 years ago... Now? No. Nice try.

EDIT For Addition:

Alright, I'll sell my GP-11 for around .70 a shot. Honestly, I'm out of touch with current surplus ammo prices.

You are probably going to be holding onto that K31 and GP11 for awhile ...
