Is it just me, or is there starting to be much less difference in prices between preban and post ban Colts?
What do new post ban Colts sell for? Say, $900 or more including tax?
I recently purchased a LNIB R6530 Carbine for $1100 shipped, with extras. This makes for less than $200 difference between preban and post ban.
I'm also noticing the preban Colts that used to have asking prices of $1,500 and up don't seem to sell and just sit there. This is obviously because folks are waiting for the AWB ban to sunset.
I figure an extra few $$ is cheap insurance if the AWB doesn't sunset.

Anyone else noticing the same thing?

Seems that the downward prices started a couple months ago. I too have noticed the same rifles on auction sites that have not sold due to once "normal" asking prices. I for one don't mind one bit loosing so called "value" in my Colts in exchange for the expiration of the AWB. Personally, I like the older Sporter Colts and will most likely pick up another, but I will wait until the AWB goes one way or the other.
