    SP1 Serial Number Question...How high did the numbers go?

    Hopeful the forum members can help me out. Did Colt SP1 serial numbers ever reach/exceed SP200XXX? If answer yes, would this put the gun in the 1985/86 year range?

    Thanks!

    SP1 production stopped late 1982.Have heard up to the SP170,000's.

    Sporter II after.

    Mine is serial number SP181063. I haven't been able to find much about serial #s after 1982. I suppose you could call Colt and ask.

    The E-nickel should be marked SP1, suspect those may be only SP1's over 200,000.
    If there are any R6010's in .222 around; maybe those are too.

    The others noted above over 200,000 are probably Sporter II or HBAR Sporter marked, not SP1.

    All due respect but I think the OP's question was answered. We can assume/ or suspect anything at this point. But if the OP would like to modify the question, no problem.

    Gents: Thanks so much for the replies. It is good to know that Colt did produce SP1 over 200K SN range. I was aware of the SN range above 170K, but my research was definitely fuzzy after that. Truly appreciate the insights and the feedback from the forum members. Hope everyone had Merry Xmas and best wishes for happy new year.
