They are hard to find and dont go cheap. If. They are truly originals the expect to pay about $1500 for a decent one. Much higher for an original nice one.

I've been seeing them on CL for a year or so... Must be the real deal and he knows what he has...

Any advantages of one over the others...

Really just depends on what you are looking for. The Bantams are the earliest from what I understand. The 416 came later and can be found easier. If i could pick one up for like $500 to pull behind my Jeep I would do it. $1500? Not so much, but I dint really need one so…

if you are planning on modifying and using the trailer off road, imho go with the m416, they are all fairly comparable in performance, but the older WWII have more historical value, i know several reinactors that really enjoy restoring them, the m416 are much more common and of less historical value, for reference i paid $400 dollars here in Florida for an m416 in really good shape and $150 for a rust bucket

Good info here. Only thing I would interject on is pricing. Up in this region things like these are harder to find and generally aren't terribly rust prone so they command higher prices. That and a lot of retired military live in the region so there is usually more demand than supply, USUALLY.

I am sure that is true, prices will definitely fluctuate depending on region and availability
