I have a line on a NIB Colt 6720. This is from the first run and has a serial number of 0004xx. I was told it is from the first batch of 500 made and therefore a collector piece. Is this true or BS? Wondering if I should opt for a current production rifle or pay a premium for this one. What would be decent price for the pre 500 serial number?

Welcome to the forum. How much are they asking for the rifle? Really need more info on the rifle itself. I have a 6720 R. 1500 made only. No big deal to me, I just love the feel of a light weight AR. Shoot away!!

I haven't seen a lot of fervor over the 6720, other than from the people who always wanted a 6520 with a flattop (I'm in this group). Normal going rate has been about $1050-1100 for a while now. 400-range serial number isn't really that low, either. Me personally, I wouldn't pay more than $1050 for it. Clyde Armory was jacking up the price on them when they were first released, and they aren't even doing that to anything over s/n CAR000400.

EDIT: New production comes with the Rogers stock, and probably doesn't have the same rollmark and/or "restricted" wording on the receiver. FYI.

I am not sure something as utilitarian as an AR will ever become a 'collector's piece', except maybe in a very distant future.
I would not pay more than $1100 for one regardless of the S/N, batch etc.

Was at my LGS today, when they had one come in off the big brown truck. S/N was four digit. No 'Restricted' markings on the lower. Don't quote me, but I think it said 'AR15-A3 Law Enforcement Carbine". It was nice, but not nice enough for me to drop almost $1200....

Mine from about Feb of this year says AR-15A4 on the left & Restricted Military/Government Law Enforcement Export Use Only on the right.
Does have the new stock.
