There are some 6601s also listed on gunbroker in the $2200 range, and they will sell for that. People right now dont care about the markings, the (lack of) bayonet lug, etc. The "details" are mostly irrelevant as the details that matter are semi-auto and 223/556 (and legal). Collectors are not paying these prices since they are not stupid. The people who are buying are desperate or counting on a Biden win (they might not be wrong at this point). If Biden wins all bets are off the table, these prices may look cheap.



lololololololololol.

I may also retire; to another country!

I personally don't think Biden is as strong a candidate as most people do. He is no Jack Kennedy and his veep choice called him a racist.

A fair price A2 is $920 to $960....as that's probably what he paid. These 1/7 HB Colts are really tack drivers......superbly accurate.

*****Yea...about that. Supply and demand generally makes the cost of an item contingent on what the market will bear. Someone yesterday mentioned in another thread that a starting point for negotiations on a "used" firearm should be about 1/3 of its cost new....

So... if ya paid $960 ish you should only expect to get $316 or so for it.... Good luck getting the owner of a Colt A2 in good shape to sell it for that.... I guess it doesn't hurt to ask, but expecting to pay $1000-$1200 in todays environment for a nice HB Colt is probably unrealistic.

Admittedly, they are tack drivers.

A fair price is what someone will pay for it. If they really need it, they will be willing to pay a premium for the product or do without. Nobody is forcing sellers to get rid of their products at less than what they can get on the open market just yet. THAT may change in the future so the price goes up to reflect the possibility that once sold, the seller may not be able to replace the item at anywhere near what they sold for. It's the nature of business.

The #1 rule about gun values , is that there are no rules .

The oversimplified rule of thumb is that a reasonably honest LGS will purchase used firearm at about 2/3 of what they will offer it for sale as a used firearm . Alternative factors are their wholesale prices for the same model new, and how many of the same or substantially similar guns they have in inventory .

The " 1/3 stories " are generally something along the lines of Joe Shooter purchases something like a value line pistol , then 6 months or year later decides to sell . To use an example from the S&W world , a SD9VE . Joe purchased for say $399 . Year later , is shocked to be offered $150-ish by same dealer .

Meanwhile , distributors have been offering very aggressive wholesale prices , and the guns were very popular for a while , and hence a buncha them on the used market . Kind of perfect storm for selling to a dealer . Joe could do better selling to private buyer directly ( following the proper protocols to be legal of course ) , where depending upon what accessories Joe includes , @ $275-300 both parties would be reasonably happy .

Other firearms may have initially had modest market appeal , but later have increased demand from shooters and/ or collectors .

Of course right now is an example of a mid level panic , and everything that goes bang is volitle , and huge demand for anything EBR-ish from people who don't have one, but think they ought to .

*************************


The Named " Large Pin " rifles were thoroughly hated upon back in the day . Primarily over Colt's policies of the day of not selling " normal " AR to public , and instead offeing a different line of rifes with non- standard parts dimensions .

However , judged on their own merits , the Sporter family were excellent , well made , very accurate rifles . as example above , my Sportster ( non- Heavy) capable of sub 1.0in @ 100yd bone stock , and another transitional Sportster bought by the late #1 Shooting and Handloading partner's brother new , and then later by him .

Unmolested Sportsters Do have collector interest in " normal times " . But I suspect those $2K plus sales are panic driven .
