I found a 90's production Colt AR15A2 gov't model Like new and it looks like it was never fired. Not one scratch on it, has FS but no bayonet lug. Grey in color, upper and lower match. Price it $1250

Good/bad?

If its a verified preban and not a grey area rifle $1250 is decent.

I would ask why it had no bayonet lug. Is it becasue the upper is a replacement postban upper that has had the muzzle threaded? Is it a Colt upper? Not a problem unless it was originally sold as a stripped lower receiver and documented as such by colt, and no documentation exists that it was an assembled rifle before the ban.

transition model colts didnt have a bayonet lug, my preban model 6601 is the same way........

I owned a pre ban Colt H-bar blue label with no lug that is normal for very late pre bans. I think the price is fair if it is in good condition.

i'll check my book later, but i believe Colt voluntarily eliminated the bayo lug starting in 1989

Colt only sold [b]complete[/b] rifles before the ban. They didn't start selling separate lowers until after the ban. All Colt AR-15 rifles with serial numbers indicating they were manufactured before the ban are pre-ban. The only exception would be if the lower was ever stripped after the ban and resold. It is claimed in a BATF letter ruling that it then becomes a post-ban lower.
