I just picked up a Colt 6920 for that price. The resale value will definitely be more than the Springfield simply because of the name recognition to the uninitiated. I have both a M&P15 and a M&P15A in the gun safe. I paid more for them than the Colt. Although both are excellent rifles, I doubt the resale would would be more than the Colt.
You get to a point in your collection where resale value becomes important if you need to sell something for another project.
