Thinkin bout buyin a colt of a guy.. he is askin 900...i know Colts arer expensive, im new to the ar also, just wondering if this is a good deal or to good to be true ya kno? Here is the spec's he gave me:

Colt 6921HB M4 Flattop upper on Colt Match Target Lower. Upper has 14.5" M4 SOCOM heavy barrel. Upper receiver is marked C AF on the right side and M4 over the gas tube hole. Upper receiver does not have RAS "T" marks. The 14.5" SOCOM barrel has "F" marked Front sight base, M4 fat Handguards, and a permanently attached YHM Phantom 5C1 Flash hider. The Lower is a Colt Match Target HBAR lower with a 6 position retactable M4 stock.

Any info/input will be great thanks fella's

Those are impressive specs alright

as long as it isn't shot out - barrel-wise and beaten up- it sounds good

It would be nice to get it for a bit less , but $900 is not too bad

a brand new one would run you around $1,100.

U can't buy a HB 6921 in the box for 1100.......

As long as the barel isn't shot out......buy it

not a true 6921 but you'd be hard pressed to build a complete COLT for much less....

Hmmm ... I thought the 6921HB's were going for a quite bit more than $1,100 .... $900 is a steal ... Supposedly only 300 were made ...


EDIT: Sorry ... I noticed only the upper was from a 6921HB ....

Edited since more info is available. Not a bad price for a Colt even if its a mixed bag.

COLT doesn't make phantoms but u need one to make it a legal 16"

Quality buttstock? If not expect to pay 150-250 for a COLT if u desire

U need throat erosion guages to chk barrel wear....

W/o the COLT Buttstock u might be better off buying new 6920 but you'd have 16 barrel vs the 14.5 SOCOM...that's up to you

No, you cannot.

The upper - provided it isn't beat to hell and the barrel isn't shot out - and is genuine Cot 6921HB heritage, is worth about $500 or so. The Match Target Lower - complete - and also not beat to hell - is worth another $350-$400

So about $900 more or less

Some factors would make it higher, and some would make it less. But based on the generalities provided- $900


(My earlier estimate of $1,100 for a new on was based on a new LE6920, which this most closely resembles)
