    Okay, I'm gonna do some trading on this Colt AR and just want Opinions and Value please. The full Auto selector I hear is rare...

    Colt M4 upper with 14.5" barrel and 1.5" flash hider permanently attached; Delaware Machinery Lower standard M4 Stock, Knights Armament Quad Rail Handguard, A3 flat top upper with flip up rear sight, complete Colt BCG & bolt, also has an m16 selector switch , no auto hammer or seat so it's legal, but switch turns all the way to auto.

    If the barrel is shiny id say on market maybe 1100-1200. The rail system is nice but a colts value is with colt parts. What year was it made? How many rounds down range?

    No idea. Like I said, we have a verbal trade agreement currently and scheduled to meet this week.

    cant tell from the pic but does it have a small hole right above the selector switch??

    a full auto selector is a grey area part atf has written different conflicting opinions on their legality in a non nfa gun. personally i wouldnt buy a gun that had one without being a legal automatic. its not like a fa bolt carrier that is 100% ok.

    a mixed parts gun that someone else has put together i would pass on.

    just my opinion

    I don't know if I would put too much weight on it having a Full Auto Selector. I actually think that is a negative in a semi-auto only configuration, since you now have a switch position in play that does nothing but give you potential overthrow. Given that you can get a brand new Colt for right around $1000 and this a mix of parts, I would definitely say sub-$1000...maybe even sub-$800.

    A shame that upper isn't on a Colt lower because it knocks at least $250 from the overall value. Wouldn't mind having the upper since it's Colt and has the KAC rails but overall I'd pass. The auto selector definitely is something to replace most ricky tick if you buy the gun.
