Talked to a buddy the other day who has one he is thinking of selling. I have not seen it yet so dont know the condition. What I was wondering is...are they really that rare? What might one expect to pay(fair price) for one,in the 95% range? I did a search and could'nt find much, does anybody have links to info about them.

Just MHO, but I think a nickel plated AR would be the fugliest thing around. I don't want that much bling on my AR. Although it would go great with a chrome Lorcin. [@:D]

Price? Your weapon's dignity.

Zoomer I assume you are talking about the old colt sp-1's w/the dull electroless nickel 'coltguard' finish...it looks like a dull gold color? My father has one in 95+% and has been offered 2500+ for it, but won't sell it. It has a chrome bore & shoots pretty damn good!

I have seen an SP-1 with the nickel finish and wood furniture. At the same recurring gunshow four times a year for two years. $1850.00 I think. I'd spend the money if I had it, but there are always other "needs" when I walk in the building.

You might check with these folks if you want a nickle finish... http://www.robarguns.com/additionalfinishes.asp I actually have an email into them regarding one of their finishes, but I haven't heard anything yet. Admittedly though, I just sent in the email this morning.

Same thing here. This particular vendor at the www.migunshows.com shows always has the same old preban Colt SP1 with the matte electroless nickel finish/w A2 handguards and stock at every show for like the past two years. I don't exactly do backflips everytime I see it either. In my case the reg. Configured SP1s seem to catch my eye a litte more. They go for $2000 while the nickel one goes for $3K. Kinda reminds me of an Albino AR.[>:/] But it's your money.Do whatchulike.[;)]
