Lemme guess--you saw it on the Bowers NFA board? The guy selling (if I remember right is Bryan Pritchard?) has an excellent reputation. Colt 614's are NORMALLY marked AR-15 Model 614. They were the civilian/export version of the Airforce Contract 615 (I think). Basically, you are looking at an SP-1 that is FACTORY select fire. Looks like an M-16 A1, but normally without the M-16 marking. The M-16 marking should make it more valuable. Basically, M-16's fall into several "price" ranges: Converted semi-auto's (generally, the ones that started with Colt semi- guns are a little more expensive). A licensed manufacturer took a semi-auto and drilled the holes needed to install the full auto parts and registered it as a MG. Lately, they go for $4500-5000ish. Colt 614's--as described above, a little more expensive $5000 to $5500. A real factory full auto. Colt M-16's--$5500-6000 Colt M-16 A1's--figure on $500 more Colt M-16 A2's--about $1000 to 1500 more (these were the last for civilian sale, and fewer were made). Collectable guns--the Armalite marked 601's are C & R guns and run $9000+. A few other collectables in that price range. The $5600 price is pretty good. I just saw a converted EA on sale on the Bowers board for $6000, but for that price, it came with a MAC 10, MAC 11 and 2 supressors!!! (the guy selling needs cash NOW). If you cannot afford the $5600, and you can keep cash in hand, you can occasionally find a converted gun for the $4500. Almost any gun is good (kind of hard to mess up drilling two holes, and for that kind of money, a good gunsmith can fix any mistakes. AFARR PS--have you considered the FNC? $2000 for the gun, $1600 for the sear $300 for the 3 rd. burst. Takes a while for the conversion, but an excellent gun. Or an UZI $3000?

SAR - March 1998. Page 57. Feb thru June '98 SAR had a series of pictorial articles on the Colt M16 from the 601 on up. Here's what it says: - 613: -- Birdcage flash hider, forward assist, chrome bolt-carrier. This is the commercial non-gonverment version of the military Model 603 M16A1 (marked "COLT AR-15 MOD. 613") - 614: --Bridcage flash hider, no forward assist, chrome bolt-carrier. This is the commercial non-government version of the military Model 604 M16 (marked "COLT AR-15 MOD. 614") Has pictures, also. They look exactly like SP1's of the same flavors, just the sear-pin and presence of a mag-well fence gives them away. Since they are A1 vintage, neither have a shell-deflector. Hope this helps.

OSOK, I can't find the ad anymore for the M-16 and MAC's, so it must have been pulled. I figure it was one of those "jump on it now ads or you will loose it" kind. Wish I had the $6k sitting around. I did (most of it) 'til a week ago when I paid off something else--pics will be forthcoming when it gets here. AFARR
