    In case anyone is looking for one... or two, Harry, at Firearms Trader Warehouse in Macon, has two Colt M-16’s for sale. You just don’t see them on the ‘shelf’ that often anymore so I thought I would pass this along.
    - All original factory Colt M-16 is $29,500 and an all Colt conversion is $23,000.
    His number is 478-747-0254 if you have any questions.
    You now know what I know about them, so please contact Harry directly for any questions.

    I have dealt with him and he’s a good guy and really easy to work with and do transfers with.

    Hope this helps anyone trying to find one. Coolest thing about the M-16 platform is you can change out uppers till your hearts content. You can shoot 556, , 300 blk - if you can afford it!-, 7.62 x 39, even 9 mm and 22 conversions. And, you don’t have to get a separate tax stamp when you have a machine gun, if you put a short-barreled upper on it.

    There are still some SGW (old Olympic arms “stop sign”) and EA AR’s converted to M16’s that can be found in the high teens. $29,500 isn’t a bad price if it’s the beefier A2 Colt lower, but more than I’d want to pay for an A1 lower.

    I agree that buying one locally where you can personally examine it, adds value over going out of state.

    Mr. Dehart is a good fellow and a good dealer. I've purchased many guns from him over the past 8 years and he's handled several out of state transfers. Can't say enough good about him.

    You can never overpay for a transferable machine gun. You can only pay too much too soon. Eventually the chickens are going to come home to roost

    When did you see a transferable M16 or AR conversion for $14k?

    About 3 years ago.

    Maybe it was 16k.

    I’m not interested in one. I think the risk is too high. Some asshole shoots up a school with one and they will absolutely be rounded up.

    I’ve shot a couple. For a couple grand, they are cool. Anything over about 5 k is just not for me. They are fun for about 2 mags and then I say “welp. Been there, done that.”

    I know some guys are really into them, and that’s cool.... But not worth anything like these prices to me.

    All that being said, the Hughes amendment should have been struck down and folks should still be manufacturing transferable ones. Those idiotic bans stop no one. Anyone with ill intent can make a MG pretty easily.

    I wouldn't mind finding another conversion in the teens. But I think that day has passed.
