SOLD, thank you AR15.com
First off, I am trying to find a fair price for this package. Good for you and good for me. I have been told 1250-1500 bucks for the rifle alone. Right now I am pricing it all at 1400 bucks plus actual shipping. Here's what I have:
20" AR -15 with triangular forearm and a bird cage flash-hider. I bought this gun in 1984 and it was NIB then. It had 20 rounds fired through it in 1986 and that is it. The bad news is that there is no box, sling or manual to go along with it. This gun is all colt and totally stock, nothing on it has been molested in any way. When I fired it I didn't even move the sight apparatus, I just cranked off 20 rounds and cleaned it and put it away. On the left front of the receiver it says: (top to bottom)
AR-15 (rampant pony to the left of these)
SER. SP 19376X
The plastic on it is dark black and the metal is more of a very dark grey. The door that covers the ejection port is a tad ligther and a greyish green. Coming along with the gun is a colt factory marked 4x20 scope about the size of an aimpoint that has a bullet drop compensator dial on it that reads 1to2, 3, 4, 5; which I assume is in yards x100. The scope has a duplex reticle and the entire until tightens down on the carry handle. Also included are the two original 20 round colt factory mags that came with the gun, 2 more colt factory 20 rd mags, and a colt factory 30 round mag. All the mags have the rampant pony on them. They have all been kept loaded for the last 15 years so I imagine they all need new springs. The gun was kept rolled up in a blanket in a closet, the mags were in an ammo can. I would rate the condition of the mags at very good to excellent for the 30rd and the original two mags that came with the gun, the other two 20 rd mags have no dings or dents but the finish is all gone off them, they are silver colored.
Again, I am looking for a fair deal for you and for me. Is this is a great deal take it, if it is not I will adjust it in a few days. I offer this guarantee, if you buy it you have a 3 days to tell me it wasn't what you thought and I will give you all your money back and I will pay the shipping both ways. I am honest. I have sold some things on this board and never had a complaint that I know of. If you want the gun but none of the mags the price is 1300 bucks. The scope goes with the gun.
Trades? Maybe, but very specific - Stoner M-4 or M-5 or something equal to it. Maybe a NIB M-1A package or a steyr scout rifle (guns can be used but need to be in really excellent condition). Local purchase or trade is very preferable in the Sterling VA area. I would prefer that the buyer/trader gets to look at the gun and take it apart and really feel good about the deal. I would anticipate that shipping would run about 20 bucks.
Sorry for the long post, to me 1,400 bucks is an ass-load of money, so I wanted to be thorough in the post. Payment by anyway you want, but I ship AFTER it clears. Postal money orders are like cash.
