What did you pay for it?

CavVet forced me to buy an SP1 at Monroe....
The wife unit is so happy she is going to spend my her $200 Home Depot gift card on herself...

Cavvet and the guys at the GF pit the day the Clampetts were shooting the rock are the reason why I have BRD. The only cure is to keep getting more guns...Show us your pics!

Hey Mack, I almost bought a Colt lightweight sporter too, but the guy wanted $1300 and didn't want to deal.
I have seen that same AR15 at Monroe for the past three gunshows.

This weekends Spo show was a suck-fest as usual. Wasn't much for mil-surps, Some o3A3's for 2x what they are worth , no Garands. The creepy Omega guys were there with some overpriced clunker surps.

Congrats!


Shop it out and it will save you some ca$h. There are three of them in EE in the first fewpages, and I dont care what year it is it aint worth 2K.




If this keeps up we will have to have an SP1 shoot!
Link Posted: 1/9/2006 9:37:15 AM EDT
here are the pics, and yes Cav, you know I got garand! I paid a grand out the door for this one. the next cheapest one I saw was 1400 and the most expensive was 3K! I think mine was worth every penny!

Damn.......that thing brings back some memories for me! RVN 1970-71

Mine came with 5 usgi colt mags (20rds) and one adventureline 30 rnd. I'm now looking for an authentic sling and bayo for it.

SMF!






You did good Mack!

$1000 is a pretty good deal for it. That guy was real proud of that $ 3k SP1 .It looks like you have the correct sling . I have a pile of them ( late type web & nylon with alloy metal hardware ) and you could get one from me at the next shoot. Personally I don't like to use them on AR's and prefer the black GI silent slings.

Mack, you got to shot my M16 Clone at the shoot didn't you ???

Does it have a block on the inside, Just infront of the rear pin that says "Colt" and a half moon bolt carrier?

Nice PURPLE rifle.
Link Posted: 1/11/2006 8:30:58 AM EDT
nope, tangent I didn't get to shoot it. But I am GOING to get out sometime in the nest few days and shoot mine! My colt does have the sear block and the halfmoon carrier, and it makes me kinda bumbed, but on the upside If I ever have the desire and live in a state that allows it, I could buy a registered auto sear and do a conversion as the block looks relitivily easy to remove.( If I ever win the lottery)

Funny... I didn't even know about the gun show until I was in at Sportsmans warehouse looking at some stuff. Me and my buddy decided not to go because it was alrwady in the afternoon and all the good stuff (if there was any) was probably already gone. So we went over to All American on Sprague and I picked up a DPMS AP4 for $700... not bad!

So yeah, kinda glad I didn't go :)

The SPORTER Lightweight was released from the Colt factory with a 16"inch A2 Goverment Carbine Upper, Model # 6530. basically a poors mans Goverment carbine with A2 receiver, no lug, and standard stock. Your gun has the A1 convertion upper. did the seller have the original upper??....

The Spokane gun shows have been seriously getting worse and worse.
It seems like it's always the same stuff from the previous 3-4 shows. And, usually higher priced.
Since they re-did the building there have been less and less vendors there. Kermit is no longer there, Jon has not been their either.

Seems like the only deals to be had, is whats comming through the doors on someones shoulder.

FWIW

Link Posted: 1/14/2006 3:31:05 PM EDT
They have become worse. The ATF at the Nov show scared off alot of the regular Idaho " Dealers " which prob hasn't helped vendor attendance ( Kermit ). Fewer ammo dealers have been showing up with the Miwall and the grumpy fat ammo guy being the only ones the last couple of shows so no spectacular ammo deals.
