Default Colt AR15A2 (or A3) HBAR 20" barrell

Interested in this rifle, but seems difficult to find.

Any suggestions other than the online secondhand markets?

Any idea on fair value? I've seen anywhere from $1,200 to $4000.

Can't really offer you much except to say they are fine rifles. My first AR was a Colt HBAR that I bought in 1991 and it was a shooter! It was the standard to which I judged all other I bought/built over the years.

Matt,
I see you live in Maryland. I searched several Hbar rifles before buying. If you aren't wed to the Colt, check out the S&W M&P15T.
I'm happy with mine

A2 are not really being made anymore (large scale).

A4 flat tops are a better design that offers flexibility. I used to think the detachable handle would impact accuracy but it does not.

I recommend RRA National Match for either A2 or A4.

Thank you for the responses. I should have added that I want the Colt A2 because it is as close to the M16A2 I shot in the military. I need to go with the HBAR because of MD law. I have no intention of making this "tactical", I want it as close to a stock M16A2 as possible. Should be the exact gun, minus the selector switch and with a heavy barrel.
