I have recently been given the opportunity to purchase some used preban Colt AR-15's. They are military used so they probably have a high round count. I am negotiating sight unseen at this time, but will not purchase without seeing them. My question is this, what is a preban Colt worth at 80-85%, 85-90%, and 90-95%? Any input would be helpful. Thanks, Country

I guess I should clarify my reasons for this question. The dealer I'm talking with has 25+ preban Colts and I'm trying to see if I can move them if I buy them all. The price they gave me sounds reasonable for one for me, but I'm not sure if I should invest in them all.

ETA. The ban is over. Why would they be worth more if they are "pre-ban" when there is no ban?

You are in NC. There should be no additional charge or value because they are pre 1994.

To those that put stock in my little pony: something

To those in non free states who have to worry about that ban/preban shit now: something more.

To those of us that don't give a shit 'cause they ain't any better than any other reputable manufacturer AND who hate their politically correct bullshit : nothing

In the free states, barring the "Colt Is God" Drones, they are simply just old AR15s, in varying states of repair. Nothing More.

So I'd say, somewhere between something and nothing.

Good Luck .

$900 for 90%
$700 for 80%
$600 for 70%

And you might have them throw in another 10% discount for quantity. Colt's still command a premium and pre-ban's are still the name of the game in ban states.

They should sell for no less than $1700 each.

So, buy them if they are anything less than that.

Sounds a little more reasonable.

I have an SP1, but would still like to get a more modern pre-ban Colt.

They are only worth anything more than any other gun in ban states. Other than that they are just common AR15's. Do not give more than 70% of top dollar for them or you will be eating them. If you can get them for about $400 apiece they would be worth your while.

The model rarity & condition will dictate the value. A new-in-box unfired Colt SP1 (R6000) in perfect condition with a low serial number should be around $2K.

possibly DOD police? our base police had ar15's not M16.



Interesting..... Didn't know that. Hell, didn't know DOD *HAD* police.... Figured it was just MP's responsible for base security.

Any particular reason for the difference ?

It's possible that they did have ARs, wern't the early one's, even F/A called ARs first? However I have never seen a semi auto while in the service and I did do security on occasion with the zoomie patrol. As an MP all we ever had were F/A m16s, either 1s or 2s. Never saw a semi once.
