Both are good to go, with the 6700 having an edge (with me anyway) as it is the flat top version of a 6601

These are Sporter series HBAR 20"ers.

Pricing varies widely depending on condition and where you are buying one. Maybe those states that still have AWBs but accept pre-ban rifles.......it could go upwards of $1,800 or more in pristine condition.

Unless you are a serious Colt collector lacking an early 90's rifle with a sear block, there are other preferable options. (Opinions vary here)

These were the first rifles that Colt manufactured with a eye on curbing civilian sales due to intense anti-gun organizations, and have some zany features (sear blocks, half circle carriers, screw pivot pin, shaved bayo lug, etc.)

Gunbroker searches will give you a better idea of going rates.

also,

6700 ---> 1/9 twist, chromed chamber only
6601 ---> 1/7 twist, chromed bore and chamber (usually, not always)

I was just wondering ...i am sure you knew but maybe forgot, but the new 6601 and 6700 have push front pivot pin and full auto bolts. also my new 6700 has a chrome bore. Altho it still had no flash suppressor. I did send it to J&T (Double Star) and they threaded the barrel and installed a flash suppressor on it for me for a little under 40 bucks. Thought you might not have know about the changes to the match target lines

Actually I did not, Shawn

I don't recall seeing one of the newer samples, but it is good to know and even better to hear.

my 6601, but not all 6601's, was pre-drilled for a standard push-pin; swapped the upper for a complete Colt 20" 1/7 A2 upper...
