  2. I had one a few years back..I believe that its a post-ban gun.

  3. thanks smallmouth....the pre-ban are worth more than the post-ban from what i've found so far,but thats alright, i got a good deal on it and its in fine grade shape....

  5. did you happen to get if from a gentleman walking around the gun show this saturday? i almost bought one myself, guy wanted $400.00 for it
  6. I paid roughly $300 for mine about 10yrs ago.

    Does it have the bayonet lug on the front sight? Does it have a muzzle break ?or flash suppressor? Is it threaded(removable) not fixed probably pre-ban
