Last time I talked to you guys I had decided on getting a colt AR-15 in which the owner had purchased in 1991 and had only shot 20 rounds through. It has a flash suppressor, the "fixed" handle and a small red star 3x20 scope on it. I just found out the barrel is a 20" H-bar and the serial # is MH00xxxx. This would indicate to me that it is a pre-ban. So I think Im going to go ahead and get it this thursday. The guy's asking $1000 and it looks brand new....almost. I plan on getting a bi-pod, bull barrel, free float tube, bigger scope, cheek rest, etc...So does the MH in the serial# say anything about the kind of gun it was?

congrats Siennfein!
You will not regret getting the preban at that price and you will over time see what a good deal it was. I got mine for $850 and at the time agonized over the "high price" I was paying!

Good to hear, but if I were going to get a pre-ban I would put it into a carbine version with the CAR stock and the 16" barrel with bayonet lug and flash suppressor. You can do the bull barrel setup on a post ban. Just a thought for you anyway.

VA has a good point that I forgot about since mine came in that configuration. Course the beauty of an ar is that you can get another upper in a preban 16" config and be able to instantly change out to the 20" if and when you want to. Or sell it and recoup the price of the 16.

welcome to the fraternity

Not bad considering I purchased my CR6601 back in July of 93 for $600 .
Then in January 94 snagged my CR6700, for a kingly sum of $850
