Hey All,
Looking for any info I can get on a Colt Match Target HBAR. I did call Colt archives and was told that the serial number was a private contract run from early 90's, they would not elaborate past that. Simply said they don't give out private contract information.
I have attached pictures. The side of the upper is marked "Colt 223", I've never seen that on other Match rifles. I am not the original owner, it is in great condition and I do have the carry handle. The serial number is PMH003510,
I'm guessing the "P" is for private run? It also is marked "C MP 556 1/9" on the barrel. I'm familiar with this marking and purpose. Colt really was of no help, guess due to privacy.
Anyone have any input?
Thanks

Hey folks. I am talking to a fellow about a trade and wanted to get your opinion. He has an unfired Stag Arms SA2 which he purchased in 2008. Everything I’ve read indicates that these were retailing at around $800 before the Scamdemic. I would be trading my all original blued Colt Mark IV 1911 .45 (90-95% which was manufactured in 1972. After research and talking with various “experts”, I’m setting the trade value of the Colt at $1500. Not really sure about that but it seems pretty obvious that some “boot” should be involved in the trade.

Anyway, any opinions on the value of the Stag would be much appreciated.

I might have an opportunity to sell my HBAR tomorrow. The chance came up kinda out of the blue and don't think I can research it decently by then, so I thought I'd ask hive what a fair price for it might be.

Its a clean (light scratches on the stock only) Pre-Ban Colt Sporter Match HBAR, Ser# 0832xx, no bayo lug, with flash hider, bought new in '94. I have between 2000- 3000 rnds. through it, so bbl probably needs replaced for match accuracy, but I'm not good enough with irons to really tell.  

If I could get a price... for sale in a pre-ban state, (through FFL) ...and a price locally in Indiana, it would really help me out. The sale will be Face to Face locally, but don't want to give it away if I can make a few more bucks and put an AR in the hands of some poor, needy soul in a eastern "pre-ban only" state.

TIA

This has been sitting in (a rifle sock) my safe for two years+ w/less than 100 rounds down the pipe and I'm considering selling it.  I tried pricing this out on the inter-web, but prices were all over the place.  Just looking for a ballpark $$$...horseshoes and hand-grenades.

Got this HK416C build in a trade package. Shot it some and realized I prefer my DI guns so I'm considering off loading it. I'm not sure the value since I got it in a package deal and I'm not familiar with HK416 pricing. Most of the stuff I see is just components or factory HK416 uppers. As shown, it does have a few dings but nothing crazy. It consists of the following parts

-MR556 Upper Receiver
-MR556 BCG
-HK416C 9in barrel assembly
-Vented gas block with sling loops
-HK416 Mlok rail
-Radian Raptor LT CH
-I'll probably swap the muzzle device to a Surefire closed tine FH to sell it. It currently has a Griffin Armament flash hider.

-Brownells BRN-4 lower
-Geissele HK416 trigger
-UCIW Buffer tube
-Heavybuffers Heavy uciw buffer
-SBA3 brace cut down

Only interested in the value for the gun, not the optic.

I bought this about a year ago and have never shot it, the gun has never been fired. When I purchased it did not have a box so I am unsure of the specific model number , though I believe it to be a colt le6920 from assault rifle ban era. (New old stock). If anyone knows exactly what model this is, and what it’s be worth if I sold it or what to look for on a trade with a gun shop that would be really helpful. I am a novice with these rifles, so any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.



Also. Can I shoot 5.56 out of these even though it’s stamped 223? They sold me 556 when I bought the gun, but I’m doubting that I can put 556 through it.

Edit: not sure how to embed images here. Sorry.

I'd be careful about shooting 5.56 if it were some new M855a1 EPR, too high of pressure, but realisticaly, 5.56 target ammo isn't going to damage a rifle that is in good working order.  There are some great articles online about THE ACTUALLY REASON .223 differs from 5.56 and it isn't what most people think.  1) more powder in 5.56, higher pressure  2)and the dumbest, 5.56 is bigger.  It's all about case size and chamber size.  There is less room in your .223 chamber than your 5.56.  Loading a slightly larger 5.56 shell in the .223 chamber MIGHT, theoretically can, cause increases in chamber pressure.  But everyone needs to understand, this is not due to increases in powder in the .223 cartridge, but rather the .223 chamber is tighter.  This is solely designed to increase accuracy.  

The concern should be do I have enough room to allow the shell to expand and contract properly.  Physically check them.  If you drop a round of 5.56 in your .223 chamber gently, it should come back out rather easily.

The real head trip is that .223 Cartridges in a .223 Chamber can run as high or higher than a comparable 5.56 round in a 5.56 Chamber.  That all depends on your ammo and more importantly, Your specific chamber size and or barrel Quality control is key.  

Lastly, you could have a Smith or even Armorer size the chamber see where it actually stands.  Second to last, and I'm not a Colt Guru, but I don't recall seeing really any Colt AR's marked .223, might be fairly rare?

Govt or pencil profile bbl?


AR 6520nor 6720, not a 6920 as no M203 cuts on bbl.

Caliber markings on lower are irrelevant, how is the bbl stamped?


About $1200-$1400 right now with the right buyer, given the current state of affairs.


Some info on .223 vs 5.55 NATO HERE

Eta: The .223 caliber designation on the lower receiver is not "rare".

First purchase here. Have only basic firearm experience and looking forward to becoming proficient.
Any input about the value of a Spikes in 300 built as a factory complete rifle in 2012, and presumably unfired (not sure how I can be sure of this), would be much appreciated. I likely overpaid and maybe should have started with a budget model.

Only paperwork or verification I have is a confirmation from the company given the serial # that it was shipped as a rifle to a dealer in 2012.

They told me that the build quality of older models is superior to many newer ones, though not sure this is true.
It has a Spider lower SBR model (Spikes Battle Rifle not short-barrelled)
ST LW-50 barrel with 1:8 twist

Have only this one photo and should be able to get more next week.


Thank you!

I have a Colt AR-15 A2 HBAR Sporter. Serial # 215***
Barrel is stamped C MP 5.56 NATO 1/7 HBAR. It’s in very nice condition. I would like to know a little about this rifle from all you experts. According to Colt’s website it was manufactured in 1972. No sear block and I think it may be a R6600, but not sure. Is this a sought after rifle and if so, what is a good asking price? Is it crazy accurate with the heavy barrel?  Thanks so much for your time.

Custom Built LaRue Tactical AR. It was made as a gift for me, so I only have a rough idea of how much it is worth. It's barely been used and since I will be making the UK my permanent home, I'm looking to sell it. I don't know if this matters but it was built to be more friendly to vertically challenged people such as myself (5'2).
