yeah definitely an A1 style. This means this is the first model that was made for the military. Pics of the other side would be great. Price wise, IDK really. I would think no more than $800-1000 unless there was something special about it like low serial number

Hi thank you

I got it for R 2 500 so its about $200. Ill go see what i can get to read about this. Ill probably wait about 3 - 6 months for the license to be on my name.

Do you guys know of any extras i can put on this rifle?

It's sort of modular. I had a beast of a

time finding an all-original Colt A2.

All everybody had was the M4/CAR-15

style for the longest time. They are very easy to find.

If I were you, I'd consider leaving your Colt all

original. You got to it for 200 $? Nice.

I agree. If it is truely all Colt, meaning somebody didn't just build it from a mixed bag of parts, then leave it all original. Yours appears to be all original based on your pictures. I would be interested to know how old it is because some of the very low serial numbered colts can go for 2-5 thousand dollars.

Now if you are dead set on adding accessories then you can remove the front handguards and replace them with something like a quad rail that you can then mount a flashlight, laser, or whatever you heart desires. BUT SAVE THE ORIGINAL HANDGUARD!

It looks like it may never have been fired and only dropped once. Definitely a collector's item.

Are you saying it's French surplus? :D

I am not wanting to "rain on your parade", yet I notice from your pictures that the serial number area is not coated, I could be wrong, but after being in and out of the Army since 1983, I've never seen that particular detail until the last few years. Again, I would check the serial against the Colt website for date of Manufacture.
