View Full Version : How much should I ask for this COLT SPORTER UPPER - PICS included

Pardon if this post shouldnt be here but I will move to the WTS section once I know how much to ask for. This is a complete Colt Sporter Upper with a Midwest none float rail with guards and VFG. I will include the NCSTAR 9x scope already zeroed at 100 yards. I am meticulous about cleaning so its in great condition. Approximately 3K rounds fired. I have no idea what price range to ask. Thanks.

With or without bolt carrier group?

Complete with BCG. All original COLT components.

Good thing you are including the tango down VFG. They are next to impossbile to get on/off without filing.

800 bucks? With 3,000 rounds through it? Sounds a little high but hey it is a very nice looking upper.

With scope and bolt carrier, I would pay 800 bucks. The scope alone has to be worth a bit ;)

3,000 rnds is nothing really IMHO

One cannot formulate a reasonable number until the following are known:

is it a chrome-lined barrel?
what is the bbl profile: gov't profile, or HBAR (no taper under handguard)?
what's the barrel twist rate - 1/7" or 1/9"?
are we 100% sure the bbl/upper/bolt + carrier assy are true Colt?

Sorry, but serious Colt buyers will probably not care about the NcStar scope. Sell it separately to someone who wants one.

$800 is $300 more than I paid for my Colt Sporter complete rifle back in 1993 (from Turners Outdoorsman). :D

Hence the smilie for the hint of sarcasm.

Yeah, I get it. But I think it's just more sad than funny.
Comedians say "Comedy is tragedy plus time." So I suppose for me it will be funny in about 20 more years.
