Good morning all,
Would like to know what you think fair value is of this Preban Colt I'm thinking of purchasing.
- Lower: Colt AR15 A2 Sporter II, Ser # SP 3060XX. No sear bloc, standard FC pins, slab side, and large front pin. 98-99% Condition
- Upper: Colt barrell; CMP 5.56 NATO HBAR, Flat Top reciever (no markings), Bushmaster bolt/carrier and carbine hand gaurds--new unfired
- Zytel Colapsable stock
- Two Adventure Line 30 rd mags but no carry handle or optical device
Seller is asking $1600. Is this a fair/good deal? Seller is giving me option of half-circle Colt bolt/carrier with the cutout at no added cost. Should I go with this? Thanks again for your advice.
Edited to correct BMP typo.
For me that seems a bit steep for not an original Colt.
Let's do the math:
Colt Preban Lower 950
Bushmaster A3 upper 450(used)
mags 35 for both
1435 is what I would pay.
Offer him 1200 and see what happens. Set the ceiling for 1450. I am sure you can pick it up for that price though.
Typo on my part, meant to say CMP for the barrel stamp, so it is a Colt barrell.
How much more are the Colt uppers? Thanks again.
1400 bucks is still what I would offer.
That's my ceiling for preban Colt's unless they are NIB with the box then 1600 is what I would pay.
Hope this helps
Got the Colt. Traded my Bushy Shorty AK and Beretta 1201FP shotgun plus $100 cash. Everyones happy. Thanks Maxell for your advice.
