I don't remember the model #, but it's identical to my Bushmaster XM15E2S. Only difference is that it felt lighter, and had the 1-7 barrel twist. Barrel was marked CMP 1-7 5.56 NATO. I assume it's lighter weight is from a thinner barrel. I saw one at a gunshow last weekend for $965 or $995. Yesterday, my local dealer had a used trade-in for sale at $899. I opened it up to inspect, and it was obviously never fired. The hammer and buffer didn't have a mark on them. The gun looked like it just came out of the box. I talked him down to $835, and put a deposit on it. How did I do ??? I know this gun is nothing special, but COLT's seem to hold their value pretty well. This is my 1st COLT, and I've heard many good things about them, so, I figured I'd give them a try. Hopefully, it performs as well as my Bushmaster. I'm VERY happy with it's reliability.

From strictly "how much should I pay for a Colt" standpoint, I think that you did very well. I priced a HBar "Match Target" Flat Top at $829 about five years ago. I think that prices may have dropped for the other brands, not sure about Colt. The important thing is, how does that thing function? :) I suspect it'll do you fine. Congratulations. I don't think that you got gouged.
