I went through the same thing a couple months ago. Ended up buying two 90s vintage Colt HBARs with A2 carry handle and a HBAR Socom in a month.

Overpriced not that much better than any other quality AR but they have a mystique and that Colt 90s "Grey" is always a bit unique.

Still have room for an SP1 when I escape Marylandstan.

Ok - so they are less than I thought. Either they have gone down in price or my notion that they went for $1,000 was wrong. I also have to wonder if HBAR barrels are not very popular outside of Maryland, esp. since these are all 1 in 9 twist and a lot of guys want a 1 in 7 (although I think 1 in 9 is just fine).

Yes, I think HBAR is a bit of a hit in popularity outside of this state. As to price, I still see them at $1000 and higher but I don't see them moving at that price either.

Of course, I could just buy a set of them but original Colt examples are expensive and that would send the overall price too high for me. I have a spare fiberlite stock for the carbine illustrated in post #4 or I would have passed on that one too.

Here's a couple of old ones from me. A 1912 Police Positive Special and a 1941 Official Police. Or as the media would put it, two Glocks.

Very nice sir!

The same Colt "mystique" applies to the revolvers as well (or perhaps even more).

Also depends what it is. Its hard to get a A2 HBAR carry handle for less than $1000. It can be done. The A3 types seem to be hovering around $850/$900 for real world sales.
