If Colt says that for the time being they will only sell properly configured ARs to LE and Military, does that mean that they are still making postban type rifles and shipping them to stores? I can understand this for banned states, by why would anyone purchase a post ban configured rifle now? Unless it was really cheap enough that you could convert it to normal configuration and still be level with the price of a new rifle. What happens to all the postban type rifles that are sitting around gun stores all across America? I wouldn't buy one unless it was really cheap.

they say that because they probably have a gazillion post ban rifles ready to be shipped to dealers. What would they do with those rifles?

I'd buy one for $400.

Sellem for cheap or use them as door prizes or raffle them off.....the possibilities are endless.

Shit I will buy one for $500. I will just go get the muzzle threaded.

All AR15s are postbans. Unless you have some state AWB.

Ok how about "neutered pre-postbans"

I would get one if they subtracted for an incomplete product.

ARs come in a lot of different configurations.
I can't imagine why anyone would buy a varminter with a bayo-lug, flash hider and a telescoping stock. Ditto for a target shooting rifle. I'm going to purchase a superlight carbine upper (w/evil features), but my base rifle will remain my "postban" 20" A3. It's still the best proposition for handload development and accuracy testing.
BTW, I hate to admit it, but the 10 round mags are perfect for chrono testing (10 rounds is the best number for crunching a meaningful standard deviation number) and bench shooting. They can also be easily switched out without moving the rifle from the rest. I expect I'll be purchasing more of them as well as a few more thirty rounders.

There's not much of a choice other than post-ban type rifle's here in Connecticut.

In the market for a nice condition post ban barrel myself (on the cheap) - 20" or 16" Dissy.

If the priceis right, I'll take one. I'll never use the bayonet lug, and the flash hidder isn't that important to me either. A colapsable stock could be handy on some rifles but I could always add one if I needed.
