My opinion is "Who Gives a crap!" When you think about it..... what's the significance other then one rifle followed the other rifle next to it off of the assembly line? Big commemorative event?

The only thing special about this to me is that the sellers always ssem to think that they can sucker you out of an extra couple of hundred bucks more per rifle on the EE!...and I find that in itself obnoxious.

Can anybody out there comment if this is really something special in collecting, and amounts to something more then a figment of the sellers imagination?

Years ago I tried to get a couple of receivers with consecutive numbers, I ended up with two units that were 4 numbers apart. Now all these years later, I don't remember why I cared.

No special value. It only matters IF YOU THINK IT DOES.........

I bought 4 lowers with consecutive serial numbers. 3 where given to family members It's kind of neat knowing who has the next number in seaquence.

Thats about it.

Many people here are obsessed with reading lower receivers for some reason.

They even paint the letters fruity colors. hacko.gif

Yea....and I suppose a real sex maniac wants a SN with 69 in it too.

just cool factor to one's self.

the only value it if brings is how much the next guy is willing to pay for them.

If it's a Colt Thompson, consecutive s/n might be worth something.

When I see a Mac 11 pair advertised that way, I chuckle.

I think its very cool tohave consecutive #'s.... a couple of month ago we got in ~30 bushmaster lowers and had ONE set of consec. Ordered 20 RRA's with no consect..... just seems weird and hard to get.

Its worth a little extra for the uniqueness if nothing else.

It would only matter to me if they were #'s 000001 and 000002.

Cool for the person who owns,and worthless to the person who buys.

Any weapon that is made in the thousands, consecutive numbers mean nothing !

You can't predict the collector's mind. Look at guys who save the boxes for Colt rifles and better yet, the guys who buy empty Colt rifle boxes - as an AR related example.
