Is this a reasonable buy?
A friend of mine from work is in the market for an AR15. Since I'm considered the gun guru at work (since I happen to own a few and not due to any professed knowledge), he asked me if the Colt he found at the gunshop for $1500 was a good deal. I have not been in the market for an AR since before the election and realize that prices have gone up on these items, so I'm not sure what is considered reasonable at the moment.
All I know about the rifle is that it is preban (meaning pre 94), new in box, Colt AR15. From what he's told me, it has a standard non-collapsing stock. That's pretty much all I know about it. I realize it would be easier to access value if I could provide more detail, but any help in providing a rough estimate of its worth in the current climate would be appreciated. Also, would you buy at this price, or keep looking?
Thanks for your help,
