Jez, what'ya think I'm made of money here, or what?
This is the AR-15 that I inherited from my late father. The old man would not approve. I am either going to keep it as is or make it more combat efficient.

But if you offer me $20,000 and two Hawaiian islands we might have a deal.

Flint, sorry to hear about your father passing. But I'm sure he was proud of the old Colt and would want you to keep it as is. No doubt he knew better than mess with something with collector value and likely bought the Bushy to tinker with.

You can have lots of fun with both. There's nothing quite like an old M16A1 style AR and you'd hate yourself later if you screwed it up.

FlintandSteel,

Sir,

You have made the correct decision to keep the Colt SP-1 in it's original condition. It is a collectors piece these days. Matter of fact back during the Brady Bill 1994-2004 That rifle would easily bring $1600-$1800. They are still highly sought after today. I have one similar to yours in my collection. There is no way I would touch that rifle other than shoot it take excellent care of it. Remember dad's gift of a fine piece and pass it on to your next of kin as you father did. I am also sorry you lost your father and I am sure your dad had planned on you having it since I am sure he knew its value and the obvious value to him. If you want something else I would at best only think of selling the Bushmaster and getting what you want. And would probably have to think long and hard before I did that. Just a thought!

03

Best offer I will do is 575.00 and two sunken Hawaiian islands.

I am glad you have seen the value of this piece. Your father would be proud.
