    Is the price in the "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" range?

    The price on these has been going up, but I hope it's still affordable.



    Does $2,000 sound reasonable?

    keep in mind this is pre-ban, never fired. they were going for $1500 8 years ago.

    Will this one also handle the pressure of the 5.56 Nato round or is it strictly .223?

    Pre ban is meaningless anymore. The ban expired almost 5 years ago now. This is nothing more than a rifle that can be had off the shelf.

    True (at least in WA state)with the exception that there are significant advantages to buying a brand new rifle from a private owner.

    Regarding the caliber, yes the Colt AR15 can take the 5.56 nato round no problem.

    I never said anything about buying from a private party, merely that the term "pre ban" is meaningless and does nothing for the value of the rifle here.

    Infact you did. You stated, "This is nothing more than a rifle that can be had off the shelf" and I am pointing out that there are some differences that make it more than that.

    Right now one can buy a rifle with a folding or collapsible stock, flashhider, bayonet lug or any other of the many "banned" features. Thus a pre 1994 rifle would of been of value between 1994 and 2004, but now that those features are not banned, a "pre ban" rifle does not have any feature that cannot be had "off the shelf"

    Maybe but do you really think it is worth $500 extra to purchase from a private party? I have never seen one go for more than $1500 in the last 3 or so years and can buy one right now that is even less than that.

    I have not purchased a gun in a long while. I have read somewhere in this forum that in Wa. St. pistols are required to be registered, long guns are not. So what is the advantage of purchasing a long gun from a private party?

    I have been shopping around for an AR 15 and have found them going for between $800 and $1100 new off the shelf depending on the model.

    Pre-ban is used asa descriptive term that refers to manufacture date. Don't you have some state research to do? There is no need for pedantic trolls in this thread.

    I believe anything youbuy from a dealer will be registered. Yes there are a number of manufacturers selling similiar models for around $1000 even. Folks tend to pay a bit of a premium for an unmodified Colt product, as they're getting a little harder to come by. Also the lack of paperwork makes it more attractive.

    I might be off on the asking price, haven't been actively shopping for these lately, so those of you more in the know feel free to chime in!

    Unregistered is def. worth more, but how much more is up to the individualI guess.

    Why do you come here and try to sell a rifle, then make it "more attractive" because there is no paper? Just sounds shady to me.

    Also, you just made an account yesterday, and all your posts are in this thread. Is any of this even OC related?

    You are probably right as far as an unregistered AR being worth more to some people. There is no doubt some do not want the gov't knowing what they have. I am sure if you look enough you will find a buyer for your asking price. I just know that they go for less other places. No doubt it is a high quality AR, which is getting very hard to come by.

    In my own opinion I think somewhere between $1400 and $1600 is a reasonable price, unless it has any add on features. But then again I couldn't careless if I was buying a Colt, RRA, SNS ind., or a Mega AR as I do not think the quality between those rifles vary much if any nor do I care if it is private or via an FFL.

    I didn't mean to be shadyby pointing out that there's no registration.. just was trying to show that it's not exactly the same as something "off the shelf" as libertarion mentioned.

    No obviously this isn't OC related... just thought this crowd might be interested. Judging by the number of views, it looks like I was right!

    Handguns are not required to be registered in this state, but there is a de facto registration maintained by the DOL when handguns are purchased through a dealer. There is no requirement to register them though when purchased through a private party.

    I see, so if you buy a long gun from a dealer it is "de facto registered" as well?

    Not really. There is the NICS background check the dealer calls in, and the sale remains on their bound book; but the state has no record of the sale. The FBI is required to destroy the NICS check data after a certain time (24 hours IIRC) but who knows if they really do. Beyond that when the dealer goes out of business, their bound books go to the ATF.

    Some call this registration, but in the strictest sense of the term, it isn't. Personally I'll buy guns off paper from trusted invidiuals when I get the chance, but it is less an effort to avoid paperwork (I've got a CPL and more dealer purchases than I can keep track of, so "they" know I have guns) than to get good deals, or swap with friends.
