I made my own gun show yesterday as I didn't want to drive to the one in Fort Worth. Went to the local gun shops. One of them had this early Colt AR-15 A2 Sporter 2 (model 6400) that has been in the shop a while. It was on consignment. The buyer originally had it marked $1800 and had been coming down each time I went in. Last week it was $1200 and this week I had a mind to offer $1000 for it. I didn't have to offer as he had come in before me and dropped the price to $999.

It was made in 1985, an early Sporter 2, a transition model between the SP 1 and SP 2. This one has A1 sights but a 20" government profile 1/7 barrel, slab sided top and bottom with no forward assist. No sear block. Evil bayonet lug. Looks to be in pretty nice shape for a 30 year old AR...haven't cleaned it yet - will fix that super dry carrier when I do.

Earl

Nice! Those will take some serious abuse and keep on going, just make sure you run good mags.

Shows the guy that's what he gets for jacking up the price like that! Nice find!
