[beer][beer][beer][beer] YEEEHAAA ! ! I went to the gunshow and found an excellent Colt SP-1. SN # SP20545X It looks like everything is factory Colt except somebody put a free float tube handguard on it. I've already got some original trianglular handguards. I can't wait to pick it up tommorow. Cost ? $1000 tax included. I'll post a pic later. Seems reasonable for a Colt Pre-ban. I saw some for $1400 today.

I remember a post on the old board from someone who picked up a preban SP1 for something like $700. Thievery.

You got a good price for a pre-ban. Nice job!

Not to brag or anything, but that was [red][b]ME!!!![/b][/red] After selling most of the accessories that came with it, I only have $450 invested in that sweet shooter.

I had an old SP-1 back in the 1980's..the serial number actually had an "x" as the last digit...What was that all about? If I remember it was SP29844x...

You will enjoy that SP1. Of all the ARs I have and have had, the SP1 still remains my favorite. Light weight, accurate, reliable.

Cool! Much better with the triangular handguards. You have yourself a piece of history. Those SP-1's sure are nice and light.

History IS cool. Nice job. You have my jealousy and envy.
