I'm thinking that since ebay won't allow complete firearms to be sold, once you buy the upper you can negotiate for the rest in private. Kinda like the 10 round mags which end up holding 30 rounds. $1,000.00 is high, even for Colt guard upper.

I have never seen one of these...what would one in that condition sell for? medcop

I've seen those before. Very rare. It's called "nickelless" or something like that. He wont sell the upper for that price broken up. He should keep it, what a set! Worth more as a complete rifle any day. If he just wanted a preban lower, he could sell the whole thing and buy two... jeez.

There was a nice complete SP1 (nickle) which went for around 1500 a couple months ago on gunbroker. Guy is f'n nuts to break it up.

I have seen one similar to this,...it was about four years ago in a gun mag. If I remember correctly the rifle was seized during a drug raid in Columbia. [heavy]

Believe it or not I saw three of these rifles at the gunshow in Tulsa.

If he's only selling the upper, why did he include a picture of the lower? Me smells something funny here...

I believe it is Colt's version of electro-less nickel plating. I'm not an expert at this, but I believe the reason for calling it this is because during regular plating using DC electricity, more nickel is deposited on the edges, so the gun manufacturers developed a special technique for nickel plating without this problem.
