Difficult to tell from the picture. The fact that he has been running Wolf through it doesn't inspire a tremedous amount of confidence though.

How about some specs??

Impossible to tell from the picture but I doubt it. $1200 can get you something special and I bet this is just a pig in a poke. It comes down to parts and I bet that thing doesn't deliver.

Not knowing the make of the upper, lower, rail, and scope, I'd say the guy is trying to recoup money spent on the add ons.

It's a Colt HBAR. ??

Scope is a 4-10x50 mil dot red/green

That's the answer I got.

Sheesh!

That's what I noticed first. I stay away from Wolf.

It's probably a reasonable deal, I guess. Maybe. For me, I'd say "I don't need the carry handle or extra stock, I want a better case, the extra pistol grip and foregrips are nice but not really necessary, the Wolf won't get used, and I prefer a holosight to a scope on an AR." YMMV. If all that stuff appeals to you, maybe its worth the extra $.

How many rounds has it got through it? And are they steel-cased Wolf rounds? Can you inspect this in person? Is it clean?

It MAY HAVE started as a Colt H-Bar, but it's not a Colt H-Bar in it's current configuration.

Now if you really want a matching Colt upper and lower receiver, this is a start, but there is a LOT of stuff there that I would personally not want to pay for as "extra" if I was after a Colt matching weapon.

I'm going to pass. He doesn't want to, "break it up."
