A local gun shop has a Colt SP1 that looks to be in very good shape. I'd say 95% or so. It also seems to have a low round count. Hardly any wear on the bolt, upper receiver, buffer where the bolt hits it, hammer etc. It has triangular hand guards with no cracks etc and the flash suppressor has the slot in the bottom. They are asking $1400 for it. Is this a decent price? Anything else I should look for?

Thanks

Unless you really want an SP1 or you live in a Com-Bloc State. I'd pass and get a newer Colt or LMT.

Personally I would consider that about $200-$300 too high. But I think prices on SP1's are rather regional too.

Here in western Colo. people haven't heard the ban has expired and I have seen several SP1's that were well used (close to abused), with one in particular that had a blued barrel, one taper pin in the front sight base - the other pin was a roll pin - and a set screw up from the bottom.

Not to mention the whole rifle was covered in a lot of old, crusty dust.

All for a mere $1400. Hey! It's a preban, doncha know.

With a little looking, you should be able to find one in the $900-1000 range. Check equiptment exchange, Gun Broker, Ect. 4weelin
