Who can own these. Saw one in the LGS. Didn't feel like asking the 20 y.o. kid working there who could own it.

The AWB ban died in 2004. Legal to own.

Yup. Looks just like it. It was an AR-15A3 Tactical. NIB for $900. Should a guy buy it?

Under no circumstances should you buy that gun (but, could you tell me the location, just so I know where not to run to and buy it). :supergrin:

O.K Fellers. I took your advice. The magazines are still sealed in the plastic. Haha, but not for long. Now, what should I do to trick this baby out?

Just so you know Colt actually stopped producing the Restricted LE/ Mil roll markings and they are already becoming harder to find brand new. In some area's they are already going for $200-$300 more.

They will be collector items in the future. No doubt about it.

Ammo and learn the weapon. Changes and additions come later. No need to buy a bunch of crap out the gate, only to realize later you didn't like or need it. Once you have the weapon's use down, look for a quality optic of some type, and possibly things like rails, grips, upgraded stock, etc.

Well considering Komifornia and NY, NJ,Mass. are going to be restricted states forever it will always get a hugh price jump if he sell it there! For us in free states it's a nice reminder of how lucky we are!:supergrin:

I am not sure about the long term collectible status that these rifles may or may not have in the future as there are definitely no shortage of the restricted stampings produced and sold.

However I will say a couple of things for certain. First, at this time since Colt has stopped all production using those particular roll markings there has been a short term or current surge in the desire to own one with these markings. This may or may not be future speculation as to collectible status, however current demand has increased prices in the $200-$300 range in many areas as dealers or buyers are trying to acquire them from remaining inventories of perhaps other dealers since Colt is no longer putting any out the doors. This in turn has driven up prices in many area's, perhaps they will settle down but the current interest and spike in demand has upped the prices.

And second, no matter what anyone feels about Colt, the Colt name in general will always hold a higher value as a pre-owned rifle.
