Is $995.00 a good price "like new" ... it is a factory assembled rifle.

I may well be wrong, but the price sounds a little too good. In any case, I'd go to the Armalite website and check the serial number, to make sure at least the lower is really pre-ban. There's a link to their site somewhere on this one.

$1000 bucks for an Eagle? RIGHT ON! Sounds like a good deal, but yet - I'd check with Armalite to make sure this is indeed an Eagle. If it is, it's a guaranteed Pre-ban.

Just above the ad at the top of the page, check out the "Industry forums". Just below the ad, under "Information", are manufacturers link. Might as well click on the ad too, to help pay the bills.

If it says 'Eagle Arms' and 'Coal Valley, IL', it is a preban lower. If it says 'Eagle Arms Div of ArmaLite' and 'Geneseo, IL', it is not a preban lower, unless it was one manufactured by ArmaLite to replace a damaged Eagle lower. Check ArmaLite's website at [url]www.armalite.com[/url]

If it's indeed a preban, the going price for a cherry Eagle Pre-Ban is about $1000 to $1200. The $995 price isn't really out of line - depending on your circumstances. Regardless of if this is a local sale or not, get it in writing that you want a 3 day inspection period. When you get the rifle, if you don't feel confident in your abilitites, take it to a competent gunsmith and spend 20 bucks to have him go over it with a fine tooth comb.

HEY POST 150!, Actually spent on something worthwhile instead of mindless chatter.
