Here is a picture of my "new" rifle. It was willed to me and I finally took possession of it. It is a Colt Match Target HBAR, serial number CMH 00XXXX. It is in excellent shape and I can not wait to put some rounds through it. Can anyone give me some idea as to when it was built and if it is a pre or post ban rifle.

By looking at the picture it looks like a post ban. All CMH are post ban.

No big deal, since it didn't cost me a cent!!!

You could have the barrel threaded if you wanted to make it into an A2 clone, but I know the history behind that weapon, so I can understand if you don't want to. You could also have the barrel lightened up if you find that the HBAR profile is getting to be a little bit much when compared to your military version.

There is a site that lists the serial numbers and dates, but I can't remember the link right now. Someone will come along and post it before lone.

Shoot, it isn't as heavy as my M-1 Garand, but it seems slightly heavier then my wife's Bushy HBAR.

I have the exact same rifle...

Colt Match Target HBAR 20" Post-Ban.

Excellent rifle, I wouldn't change a thing with mine... Willed to you? Sorry for the loss, but enjoy the gain!

How much does the 'average' Colt Match Target HBAR weigh? Anyone have a shipping scale?
