    I need your help! I have a trade I'm working with a seller. He wqnts to tade in his Colt SP1 in great shape. No box or paperwork with a serial number of SP187XXX. Can anyone tell me what year this gun was made? Also what is the difference in value and use of having a "Preban" gun v's a gun that is post ban? Thanks for the help!

    I believe the AR-15 you're interested in was manufactured sometime in 1982.

    As far as I am concerned? Absolutely no difference - it's a marketing ploy. Some guys are collectors of Colts, so they one to get one of EACH - of each type, pre-ban, post-ban, whatever. If it's for shooting, not collecting (for YOU), then that adds no value (nor subtracts value). Legal status and shootability are the same. Unless you want to put a bayo on it, then you want a "Pre-Ban", or a "Post-Ban", just not a "During-Ban".

    if it is total old school, such as triangle handguards, non detach carry handle, pencil bbl, stuff like that, it is worth more. say 1500 plus. if more viet nam era, the price keeps going up, depending on how 'old school' it gets, such as no forward assist, and other really older school things like that.

    In general, if you want an idea of current market value for any gun then check gunbroker or auctionarms. SP1's are going all day for $1,000 to $1,200.
