I saw this ad in the classifieds today. What do the experts say.

Sounds too cheap to be legit..............

not necessarily, maybe they dont know quite what its worth, police in MI were goingto sell one for 700

I asked about any ammo and he said " I'll let it go with the gun." He didn't say what quantity he had, but he sounded young.

If this is a transferrable A1 (not an SP1 conversion) it almost qualifies as a steal.  Even an 80% finish Colt RR could bring around 12k.

"Commando Style Class III Mint Condition Pre-Ban - $10000"


He responeded to my email, told him to post join arfcom and it could be his first post on equipment exchange.

Haven't seen him yet.

Not exactly a helpful description.  Where are all the magic words:  machinegun, Colt registered receiver, M16A1, transferrable?  Not sure what "Pre-Ban" refers to?  Maybe the upper has a bayo lug?  If so, who cares?  I hate it when people use the descriptor:  _____ Style.  

Optimistic take:  maybe it's a transferrable M16A1 that he's selling with an 11.5" upper.  

You'll need to see the description on his F4, along with pics.  Better yet you'd want to examine it yourself.

Here is the ad. I can't afford it but I thought someone here with the bank roll might be interested.M16A1

Jump on that.
He probably bought it a few years back, doesn't realize value has increased.

10K A1? It's not really a 'steal'.

you can still find some brands/conversions for less. Granted, not many under 10k, but there are still some around.  Saw one today for 9500.

check the NFA classfieds.

Ballpark for a typical conversion RR, a very good deal if a Colt M16A1.

From the owner


It's an Olympic Arms pre-ban. Oly. refers to it as an AR15, it has a 14"
barrel, .223, no conversion. It's like brand new. Jim Weaver,President of the
IAWCA, appraised it at $10,000. I've owned it for 10 years and shot it once.

Hey Eric thanks for taking the ball and running with it. I hope you get something out of it for all your hard work!
Link Posted: 4/20/2007 10:20:57 PM EST
Owned it for ten years and shot it once? If I had a 10K orgasm like that I'd shoot it quite a bit more.

At least we all know it's real, too high for a non-Colt though.
