    I took this in on trade and to be quite honest I was going to keep it but I need to move some stuff in my shop and I have searched Gunbroker and others and I cannot find one exact and in this condition to even offer up a price . I want to be fair because I dont price gouge people in my shop and as stated its well used . I prefer to have them come back happy and buy other things . Its well used for sure , I was told this one was a California Highway patrol trade in but I cannot confirm that . Just looking for a fair honest price to unload it and keep my small shop moving .
    Heres a few pics , it is the older gray colored upper and lower which leads me to believe late 80s early 90s . Colt upper, barrel, carrier, bolt, CH . The upper does have alot of wear on the top of the handle , it looks like it has ridden in a mount of some sort and rubbed it pretty good on its left side.

    Since it is an H-Bar and not an SP-1 my thought would be $500-Tops $600. It seems to be in fair shape but surely has been used. However, I would check or have someone check the Head Space and Throat Erosion in the Chamber before I sold it or sell as is! *With signed acknowledgement. If it does have excessive Throat Erosion from prolonged use if it would have a serious event someone in this day an age might take issue.
    Only my thoughts!:)

    Certainly plan on doing this before turning it loose, Its in fair shape and I was going to ask $650 for it so Im not to far out . Seems as the ones on GB are way higher than Id be willing to pay for a used one . I did change the gas rings , Im not even sure how it operated because they were at the end of their life cycle also



    I did finally get some info on it from Colt, Built in Nov of 94 . Original Sporter HBAR
