I have a Colt sp1 at that did not come with forward assist. # 165xxx. 20 inch barrel with triangular hand guard. I got this years ago from a local gun shop that was closing and I thought it was interesting. It is in great shape and I never even fired it. My question is.... Are these great weapons in some way I am I am not aware of because when I look at what these are going for on gun sites they seem to be real high. Makes me wonder why and if I am missing something. Is it just because it reminds VN vets of their weapons? I am thinking of selling but don't want to if it is a really good gun to have and use. But if it just has sentimental value I don't need that. Sorry no pics,I took some but my iPad won't let me post them for some#%##\\€£¥ reason. What can you tell me? Thanks in advance.

Willie,
I have a friend with the same rifle. He took it to a gunshow this past weekend and priced it at $1400. The best offer he got was $1000. He brought it home.

Keep in mind that he was in line for 90 minutes and never made it inside the building and the offer came from someone leaving the gunshow.

That rifle should have brought the $1400 easy around here before the run on AR-15's.

Thanks Sam. On one site I looked at they seem to be going for 1500 up to 3k. I just don't get it. It does seem to be machined in the receiver so adding parts might be easy to make it operate in a different manner and my newer ar's don't seem to have that. Could that be the difference? At 1k I would bring it home too. Even if it just sits. Do you know how to post pics from my email on a iPad?

Can't even seem to do that on a iPad. I will try later on a real computer at my office. Hoe can I get your email address?
