    Thanks for the picture, that reminded me of my old standard A2 HBAR rifle that I mostly used for DCM (now CMP) rifle competition back in the day when I was younger and still single, those were the good old days for sure.

    I have not looked at current prices lately but the last ones I'd seen was several years ago a complete Delta A2 HBAR with the original accessories like yours in excellent condition sold for around $2K.

    The market for those pre ban are states in the Northeast that banned current models but allows only pre ban, probably CT if I'm not mistaken, and dealers there doubles the prices of either complete rifles or lower receivers.

    Try to check Blue Book of Gun Values first before settling on your selling price, if you're selling it to a gun ban state probably double the price for a start, then go lower from there with the highest offer.

    Those high capacity magazines you shown in your pictures might not be legal in those ban states, ask the buyer if they are legal to own there otherwise just send them one 10 round mag.

    Those look like standard capacity magazines to me. If they're the same age as the rifle, they may be grandfathered in to states that haven't banned standard capacity mags. Although some of the older 20-round mags are worth $$$ to collectors, too, depending on who made them and when.

    Nice Delta, that would be MD [and maybe NJ and CT?] compliant and may command a premium price given completeness and condition. Depending on the ffl they may allow the mags as they are part of the rifle's 'original accessories/parts'; plus you can tell from the anodizing/wear on the 30rd mags that they are period correct preban.

    Never could figure out why they put Tasco glass on these?
    No sniper in their right mind would put that on an HBar.
    Like looking thru a pop bottle as my buddy says.

    Maybe Colt was ahead of the curve of so many products on the market today...it didn't have to be tactical...it only has to look tactical! Besides...like so many law enforcement agencies and companies...they all use the same brand..."Low Bid".
