    Had a Chance a few months back to get Original Complete Upper & BCG /CH of a 67 SP1 in "Very Good" Condition for 699.00$ , I very reluctantly passed and will hate myself for that for an indefinite time over it ...

    How long has this trend been going on and where will it end? It's making me consider listing my 1973 SN 26,000 with original SN'd box and plastic bag.
    That isn't panic buying, that is the collectibles market. You can buy a reproduction cheap or an original at collector prices.

    This is my pre-ban (circa 1983) with original Colt 3x20 scope and metal magazine (not pictured). It was passed down to me and it will likely be passed down to my son as well. I have shot it on a few occasions but it mostly is a conversation piece. Nice to know itís worth a fair amount of cash.

A real Colt 4x20 scope in really nice condition will fetch about $300-$400 easy. 1960s SP1s are between $2500 and $3500 depending on condition and year. That is the market price. 1970s SP1s are more in the $1500-$2000 range depending on year and condition. Of course, in "ban" states, you can add even more money to the prices. In my opinion, $2400 for the SP1 you are looking at is a bit high, but only by a few hundred dollars. If you know what you are looking at, know what year it was made, know if the 4x20 scope is an original Colt scope or not, you may want to consider making them an offer that is a few hundred less (somewhere around $1800-$2000).
    I bought this 4 x 20 Colt scope off Texas Gun Trader from a guy who says he got it from a collector he knew who had 3 or 4 of them. I swindled it away from the guy for $ 350.00 about 1.5 years ago and sold it on Ebay about 30-45 days later for $ 650.00 - $ 699. I sure wish now I didn't sell it now as I figure today it's well worth $ 1000.00 - $ 1200.00, you look on Ebay the one's that look like they've been dragged on a gravel road behind a pickup truck fetch 400.00 - $ 500.

    I have the same scope. I bought it several years ago for about $200. No box, just the scope and covers. No way I am parting with it any time soon. It would be too expensive to replace.
