Ar15 Sp1 Price

Recommended Posts

The SP1. Is that the one with the triangular handguards and the semi auto variant of the M16a1?

Right now you can get that variant as an Upper reciever and barrel (Complete) for $399 + shipping.

Any ideas of year of production? Can you rate its condition? (New, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor). These help.

If it is an earlier run model with low "miles " it could be worth a few bucks to say the least. Does the bolt forward assist have a tab on it hanging down, or is it like a round knob.

I had a AR-15 that was Based on the M-16a1 in 1992, but It was wore out even before I got it. It was fun, but not worth what I paid. Later traded it towards a C1a1 (Canadian L1a1 FAL Preban).

Thed, Yes it is trianglular grip, I've had it for years but can't remember when I bought it. Has NO forward assist,and I guess it to be in good to very good shape. I have fired it some,but gave it up after buying HK91.

Wow! That early eh? A genuine collectors item.

The first thing I would do is check the Online Gun Auction sites on the Web. Almost anyone can sell a firearm on the web (Assuming there are no Federal, State, or Loacal Laws prohibiting them). The people who buy off the Web Auctions MUST be or go through a FFL.

I would do a search of these auction sites for past SP1's and what they have sold for in hte past to dealers. This I think will give you a better "Real Value" than a Blue Book.

Type "Firearm Gun Auction" in a search engine and you should get several. You will have to do some digging, but I would think it would be worth it to know.

Best of Luck,
