With the ban on "assault weapons" now over on the federal level why do I still see "pre-ban" weapons fetching a higher price than current production? Physically they are no different so whats up with this?

Thanks.

See above...

And believe it or not, there are some dealers trying to pull a fast one on people not as knowledgeable as yourself.

Prebans are more desirable to collectors than current production models for the sole reason that prebans are no longer in production. The total number of prebans produced is final. There will never be more, while current production examples just goes on and on.

Example: Colt AR-15A2 Gov't Carbine (Model R6520) ended production in 1994. The Colt AR-15A2 Gov't Carbine (Model AR6520) is still being produced but is different in appearance than the preban version.


A new-in-box Model R6520 -Around $1,900 (preban)

A new-in-box Model AR6520 - Around $1,200 (current production)
