A lot of the guys have been talking about what they are going to buy. But, what do you guys see happening to the worth of our prebans if the AWB dies?

I'm thinking Colt ARs, especially ones marked "AR-15" are going to hold their value the most. You know as politically as Colt is, they would never again build a rifle with that name. Other brands will probably bottom out. I bet pre-ban M4-style uppers will elevate in price, since the demand will increase.

It doesn't matter to me, my PB Bushy HBAR isn't for sale at any price. It's more valuable for what it represents-I bought it to tell Uncle Sugar what I thought of the AWB and his distrust of people like me owning weapons like an AR15. The longer I keep it, the less powerful he is. Doesn't mean that I won't be building a few pre-ban style kits once the AWB sunsets though. :) Dave

Well the MT AR15s are selling for $900-1000 retail now. I bought my preban rifles when they were $600 each!

You did better than I did. My preban PWA cost about $800 when I bought it just after the ban.
