SP-1 for a friend..Yeah, I know it's probably been discussed hundreds of times before but can anyone give me a clue as where to get this info...remember the key word here is a "free" list of the breaking point of serial numbers for pre-ban. Also no flaming as I know nothing about Colt rifles. I shoot a Bushy. Thanks in advance

If it is an SP-1 then it's a preban. If it's marked AR15 it's a preban. If it is marked Colt Sporter than more than likely it's a preban. If it's marked Match Target then it is definately a postban. Sorry, I've lost my list of numbers.

Call 1 800 962 2658, give them the serial number and ask the year of mgf. Free

If people keep shooting "Bushy's" soon there will be none left. (Ponyboy's got it right - there are no postban SP-1's)

Check out biggerhammer.net he has all the numbers for pre/post ban rifles for colts. My two cents worth.

It is a preban if it's an SP-1, but if you really want to be sure send it to me and I will take a minute sample of the material and have it carbon date tested. I can probably have the rifle back to you in a year or two.

Thanks guys for the quick response and I'm sure you made my buddys day! Also you can never shoot too many Bushys as they are plentiful and are everywhere![bounce] (I especially like my shorty flattop with an Aimpoint on it!) [:D]

Thank you Deadeye for posting this and thank you all for the quick responses. And yes it is a PREBAN COLT!!!

Who cares? Your LEO would not know a preban if it kissed his a$$. If you commit a crime, then it might be an issue. Otherwise, fork it.
