Howdy, all. I've been lurking awhile and decided to join. Great site! Got a question for you. I have a pre-ban Colt AR-15 HBAR, one of the ones with no fence around the mag release on the lower, A2 upper, flash hider and no bayonet lug. I bought this rifle in '91 or '92 and it has less than 1000rds thru it. I was wondering if anyone knows an approx. cost for this rifle in NE Ohio. Need to know for insurance reasons. None of the gun shops I go to around here will give me an answer, they just tell me what they'd give me for it if I was trading it in on another gun. I realize any prices posted will be approximate and I won't hold anyone to them, I just need a ballpark figure, as stated above, for insurance reasons. Thanks in advance.

Was the rifle new when you purchased it? It sounds like you have an SP-1 green label with a different upper. If you actually have a green label receiver it might be worth as much as $1800. Otherwise the $1500 ballpark isn't out of line for any preban. I would insure it for $2000 and just tell the insurance company you have some kind of rare hybrid. It sounds to me like you got a transition rifle between the green label and blue label AR-15s.

rg00red, I bought it new through the hardware store I work at so I know it's not a parts gun or a ba$tardized hybrid. I kinda thought it might be a transition model since all the references I see to the A2 AR's states they have the fence around the mag release and the reinforced recoil tube ring, neither of which mine has. Anyone else have an answer? Now I'm kinda curious about it. Thanks. Bub

Bub - sounds more like a blue label, probably an R6601. Can you give us the first few digits of the s/n? If it is a 6601 it will be something like MH0xxxxx.

Fox, I'm at work now, I'll look when I get home. Thanks. Bub
