    A buddy of mine told me he would sell me an m-15 for $1500. Slightly used but good condition. Anybody ever owned an m-15?



    Thanks

    Are you referring to a smith and wesson model 15 thirty eight special revolver, or an ar15 type rifle?


    If Obama is the answer; how stupid was the question?

    I'd love to help if I knew what type of gun we were talking about.

    Perhaps he is using the military designation for a Colt Officer's model-style 1911. Rock Island armory made these for the US DOD starting in 1972, for issue to people ranked General...

    As a collectors item, $1500 is propbably about correct, if it's in mint condition. But if you want to keep it's value, you can't shoot it or carry it around every day. the whole point of perfectly preserved collectors items is that they are PERFECT...

    As an every day carry gun, this seems like a lot of money for what is basically an old gun--old design, old features, old manufacture, old safety mechanisms...

    For a LOT less money, you can get a newer gun with more features, and probably more reliability and performance.

    So it depends on what you want to do with it, as to whether or not this is a good deal...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
    --Barry Goldwater, 1964
