Hello, I am new here and I have a question. In I believe it was '84 I bought a like new AR from a dealer that is finished in silver. I don't know whether it's called coltguard or what but the only reason I got it at the time was I had seen it advertised in Shotgun News. Any idea of it's value and rarity would be appreciated. Thanks, Brett

Are you sure it's not chrome/pimp finished? I'd like to see a pic.

In '84? How much did you pay for it back then?

Sorry I can't post pics. Maybe I should sell some guns and buy la camera? No. It does look like a pimp gun and thats why I passed it up when I first saw it back in '84. When I researched the old Shotgun News there were some being sold in I think '82 in camo and silver.I was told by a gun show guy a couple of years ago that there were about 400 of each sold. I need to try to find out from Colt I just don't want to spend the money to do it. Buy the way I gave $460 for it back then. Brett

You'll get way more than that for it today. If you can borrow a digital camera or any kind of camera, please post a pic. I'd love to see it. Also, it came from the factory finished like this?

That's the big question. It came from the factory like this unless some vendor did this to a new rifle back in '82. At least it's not a chrome Luger.

Brett4- If your AR looks anything like the one in the above pic then unfortunately it has seen alot of use & has had the finish completely worn off. The only thing that could be rare about a gun like that is that it would still fire after so much use. Taking in consideration that you paid $460 for it I will give you an even $450. This way you can say it only cost you $10 to learn a valuable lesson in buying used guns. No need to thank me, just tell me where to send the $$$.

Shiney silver AR's are actually a great tactical advantage. When hiding in deep brush, the occasional bright flash of the sun catching the receiver and barrel only confuses your enemy further. Quick flashes of bright reflected light are something our most elite teams have been using on their carry weapons lately. The official designation for the weapon in question is M4-DB.....or M4-"Disco Ball". It's a standard M4 covered from tip to tip in tiny squares of mirror. Absolutely deadly.
