View Full Version : Preban AR Prices

August 10, 2012, 06:35 PM
hi guys! fairly new to this forum and did some searching on serial numbers and what not. my dad has had 2 ARs for i believe over 20 years. obviously they are preban. he brought up a question today asking how much they might be worth now. any figures? colt sporter comp .223 SER.CH 018xxx and colt sporter lightweight 9mm SER.CH NL0016xx. If this not the appropriate thread, I apologize in advance and thanks for the help!

Now that the ban has expired they are not worth any more than any other used AR in most places. If you live in a state where only preban rifles are allowed, and it would be legal to transfer them to someone else then the it would be hard to predict. They could be worth a fortune to someone who wanted one.

You might pose the question to calguns.net, more likely to get answers from folks with more experience with CA issues.

I sold a pre-ban 20"Colt Match Target 1/7 a year and a half ago for $1400. It was unfired and had one of the original Colt 4x carry handle scopes attached. Those scopes are hard to find, and usually go for around $250 as NIB as mine was, so I figure I got about $1150 for the gun itself, which was about what a new one was selling for at the time. As said before, I doubt if a well fired pre-ban Colt will be worth any more than a post ban one now.
