Value of 1928 C&R West Hurley w/GI internals, etc.?

I'm intending to list my 1928 C&R West Hurley for sale shortly.  However, I've no idea how to value it because I've both made changes to the gun and have a lot of accessory type items for sale with it.  It has all GI internals (a hand-picked set from IMA, Doug Richardson pilot buffer, etc) and Bbl, a complete, extra set of wood, including both grips, stained to match, 2 GI 50 rd. drums, 20 box magazines, pouches and bags for the drums and mags, several cases, WWII and Korean slings,  It's doubtful I can price it at what I have in it but I'm unsure how big a "bath" I have to take.  Also, I don't want to keep changing the price; I want to price it once, realistically and leave it there. Any and all suggestions will be much appreciated.  Thanks.

The Machine Gun Price Guide has the WH selling from 16 to 21 K and the USM1 Thompson selling for ~ 25K.  So there's your price range...

Last year I sold a one owner extremely low time West Hurley with a drum for 18.5.  I feel that was top of the curve

You may want to consider selling the accessories seperately. In my experience people tend to want the extras, but quickly negotiate away the value. 

The accessories would be easy to move if you market them to the Thompson specific forum.
