I purchased a preban Colt Government Carbine in a Green label box- serial number on box matches one on the rifle . serial number on plastic sleeve mathces one on rifle. Here is my question--- the rifle has a sear block--I thought all green labels so to speak were without the sear block. Am I going to have trouble selling this rifle as a green label? Thanks in advance.

I'm no Colt expert but after shopping around for a green label pre ban it has become apparent that some of the newer green labels did have blocks as they were moving into the transition years. It does affect price but usually by not more than a few hundred dollars.

Are you sure about that, Steve? I don't think the sear blocks started showing up in any of the Colts until late 89-early 90. Was the R6520 Government Carbine even available as early as 84-85? My guess is that this guy got a late Green Label, probably early 90's vintage. It will probably not be as desireable or command quite the price of an unblocked Green Label gun.

I have Blue labels with out the sear block. I thought that only came in later Blue Label guns. This confuses me.

David Maybe we should swap rifles and make things right in the world again.
