My brother (LE) has an opportunity to by a 20" slick side SP1.
What would the value be? The seller (also LE) says its in good
shape, but we haven't actually held it yet.

Thanks,

Johnny C!

The price for SP1s are probably going to drop after the 14th. You said the seller says its in "good" shape so I would say not over $600 after the 14th. Some collectors may disagree.

I picked up this one for about $450 awhile back, which is a pretty good price. I would figure under $800, which is what I was able to get them for during the AWB.

Very nice Stickman. I hope to pick one up after the ban. I'd pay $600 for one in good to excellent shape.

Thanks for the input guys...

About six months ago I picked up a 99% SP1. Paid 1400, but thats cause I got 47 Colt mags with it, half of them still in package. Best deal I've ever come across.
Theres something about the SP1 thats just cooler than any other AR, please dont dork it all up trying to make an M4forgery out of it. It's the 20" rifle that makes a 16"carbine feel like a boat anchor.

Agreed.

Post Sep. 14 ,if Colt, probably between $450-600 depending on condition. However, if absolutely mint, unfired in original box, probably quite a bit more because of collectors value. I forsee most items taking a price drop after Sep. 14, but it always comes down to what you are willing to pay.

My brother had a nice one several years ago, but sold it.
He's wanted another one ever since. Thanks again.

someone has a striped slab sided lower on the EE for $800 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The one I bought last week very cheap, is new and un-fired. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with it. I have had several appraisals from 1000.00-1500.00. It's anyone's guess after 9-14.

Just out of curiosity, why would he/you want a gun that uses non-standard upper and lacks many features that were added over 25 years ago?

I personally think they look & feel great. My brother was looking to
buy it & resale for a profit. From I've read here, no chance. The guy wants $1000.
He may be stuck with it, but I know a lot of people that don't read AR15.com &
therefore he might get it. I thought $1000 might be a good deal for an SP-1, but
that's why I asked here....

I'm saving my pennies for a suppressed 9mm upper...
Thanks again!

Johnny C!
