I put an AR-15 on layaway at the local gun store. Its a Colt A3 type with 4 position collapsible stock. 16" barrel with flash hider. It is very gently used, no exterior flaws whatsoever and the chamber appears in excellent condition. Also, it came with a soft tactical case and 8 magazines. The total out the door price was $1060. Is this a good deal or not? I haven't fully purchased the gun yet, but I put $200 down and will be paying it off next week.

Pretty good

That rig sells for around $1,100-1,300 brand new..........when you can find one.

Nothing like a bird in hand though...

Congratulations!!

Good choice and good price if it's in excellent condition as you described.

Let us know either the model number or the markings for now and a pic when you get it home.

Congrats.

is it like this one? www.colt.com/law/ar15a3.asp

Yes it looks exactly like that particular model. I do not believe the receiver is marked LEO use only, although the guy in the shop said it was. Maybe it could have been marked on the right hand side?? I only looked at the markings on the left side of the receiver. Wish I could remember the model number though...

Unless it was dipped in poop, you got a great deal...Hell, even if it was dipped in poop.

AR15-A3 Tactical Carbine

The LBD prefix denotes 6721 Tactical Carbine

23xxx is a somewhat recent manufacture

Well thanks for all the information. At least I know I got a fair price on a great firearm. Maybe I'll try to talk the guy into throwing a few rounds of ammo in with the price
