Just looking for a ballpark figure on what this would normaly go for...

Brand new/test fired only condition...

Colt pre-ban M4/A3 military issue flattop upper
14.5" 1/7 twist M4 barrel
A2 birdcage supressor
side sling adapter
M4 handguards
A3 carry handle
All proper Colt markings
No bolt/carrier or charging handle

Is $700 realistic?

Thanks in advance.

$700~~~!!!

Maybe for the military.

Your looking at about $2,100+ for something like that dude.

If you go with Bushmaster you will save a lot,check them out too.

If you are buying one and you could get it for $700 it would be a decent price.
Most people want the 1/9 twist so these 1/7 twist ones don't go as fast.

Hope this helps.

I think I got a good deal on an M4 conversion recently, considering Colt parts are really high priced...

I just paid $950 for a BRAND NEW Colt M4 upper, pre-ban, 16.1", with bolt & carrier, charge handle, carry handle with A2 sight, double heat shield hand guards, tele-stock & spring, pistol grip... cleaning rod, sling, manual, etc...

The 16.1" and 1/9 twists are worth less as there are more of them. 14.5" 1/7 commands $400 for just the barrel.

Your upper would be 900-1000 with the bolt/carrier/charging handle. The 1/9s go for about 150-200 less. Subtract 150 for the Bolt/carrier and 20 for the handle and you get...

730-830

$700 is a good deal.

I got one 16.1" 1/7 complete with bolt for $800.00 so $700 is a good deal.

If you part it out, it will cost more. My 1/7 20" preban HBAR is $395 for just the barrel and front sight post. Same with the 16.1" barrels...

PS: My pre-ban is a 1/7, which I think is better than a 1/9, but that's my preference.
