Well after years of fighting the feeling, I finally did it and brought home a Colt. It is a postban 6700 with the detachable carry handle and 20" Barrel. I got it for 879 at the Local Gun Show. I think I didn't do too bad.

Since I just got this thing, is there any quality control issues I should be worried about?

Thanks

Max

Yep. They multiply like rabbits. Edit: A Colt 6700 retails for $1049, so you did well [:)]

Max, Sounds like a great buy. I’d like to have one of those too and have been hoping for a similar deal with $850 in mind, but I’d bought it for $879, that’s a good deal. The rifle shouldn’t have any QC problems, shoot it and see. Best regards, J

I paid the same for mine. It was the best price that I could find and I busted my ass trying.

Thanks gents. I have been thinking about getting a bushmaster superlight weight or something. You guys are right, these things multiply like rabbits. I have looked and purchase other rifles, but the mainstay is always the M1A and the AR15. I have 2 lowers I haven't completed yet and would like to have an SPR and maybe a retro A1 Style postban rifle. The AR10 has some potential as well. I like those and I am looking into that as well. I have to say I have a learned allot about the AR15 site because of all of the great members here. Most of my purchases were from the information that I was able to obtain from fellow board members. I don't have a digital camera, but that next on my list. Thanks again guys. [marines] max

You can use a film camera and have them put them on a floppy as well as prints for $3 extra or so, at walgreens or wherever you go. WE NEED PICS!

Thanks for the input. Now I have been eyeballing a preban Colt Blue Label. Will this madness ever stop? Max
