Hello everyone...can anyone tell me what a good price is for a post-ban 20" Colt H-Bar? I have the opportunity to buy one that appears to be unfired....I want to know if the price of this post-ban will go down after the bill dies. Any information would be appreciated.

A good price for an unfired postban Colt would be around $750 or lower. Postbans will drop slightly in price after the sunset but I doubt by very much. Like many of us are planning to do, you can always get a new upper after the ban expires to bring her back to pre-94 configuration. Or you can take a postban barrel and have it converted by a gunsmith or DIY if you have the facilities. If it's a good deal and the rifle is in great condition then go for it, they will all be Nobans in a little while if we keep up the fight.

I can purchase the Colt for 700....I just didn't want to buy it today and in a year for it to drop down in price lower then what I paid for it...I already have a Bushmaster 16" that shoots very well and this rifle would be to keep in my collection. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me.

You're welcome. Aubie1, that sounds like a good deal to me, and Colts usually command a higher resale price over other models as seen in the AR15.com equipment exchange and on other boards.

I deal with a few local guns shops in Central Pennsylvania...this man is retired and has his shop in his basement. One of his customers is "dumping" alot of his collection. I was in the right place at the right time. I know that the Colt should be more then $700 especially an unfired one. He also has a M1A National Match for $1400...appears to be unfired....also a Benelli M1 Tactacal shotgun...btw that shotgun looks really nice...the gentleman just brought it in that day to sell. I've helped my dealer sell his rifles and pistols online. He has very good prices...glad to see that there are those in the gun business who's intention isn't to cheat everyone out of their hard earned money. I can give you the contact information if anyone is interested...Just send me an email at aubienittany@yahoo.com BTW my Bushmaster I bought used was $600 and it was fired...not much but still used....so this would be a steal at $700. I've found so many good deals on rifles that I am amazed how and why others passed up on the opportunities..."early bird gets the worm" I suppose...Happy hunting to you all.
