So I have not priced 1911's in a while and was wondering what a reasonable price would be if i were to sell it. Like the title states, it is a Springfield GI model in stainless, maybe 3-400 rounds through it (bought it just as ammo was getting more expensive). I am very particular about maintenance so it is kept very clean and well oiled.

any insight is much appreciated

I wouldn't pay over $450, and ideally I would try for $400 as a buyer.

I saw one locally sell for $450 in excellent shape, but in your area they may be harder to find and you could try for $500 if someone wants it bad enough, but that would be pushing.

You can get one nib for 499 on many popular internet sites. Once you ad shipping and the transfer fee, that puts the price at around 550.
So for a used one in great shape no more than 425 (480 w/shipping &transfer fees) on the net, and 450-475 ftf. I have been surprise that some people pay more on gun forums. I say start at 500 and lower your price accordingly.
Here is a reference.
