Our Assessment: This is an extremely rare find in the rest of free America, but commonly found in the states like Commiefornia. Once they set a ban and registration on AR rifles, responsible gun owners went out and purchased the rifles new and stashed them away in the rafters of garages and basements. Luckily this rifle, although not in its original box, was stashed away by a responsible owner.  A perfect addition to a Colt collectors arsenal.

Extremely RARE Pre-Ban Colt AR-15A2 Sporter HBAR Model R6600 Rifle. The 6600 was only manufactured from 1986 to early 1989. These pre-89 rifles are highly sought after by collectors, as it is as close as one can get to owning an M16A2. There is no sear block. The Colt model R6600 Bar, Colt’s heavy-barreled version of the standard AR-15, is capable of increased accuracy over their regular counterparts. The R6600 H-Bars are incredibly accurate due to their 20″ heavy barrels. This 6600 HBAR Sporter is a true treasure. Made for the civilian market after the SP1 series of AR’s this model incorporated the new 20″ heavy barrel (HBAR) with 1/7 twist for use with the heavier green tip 62gr ammo. A2 sights, A2 flash hider, brass deflector and round hand guards were also added to this model. This rifle may not come in its original green label box but this is a true Green Label Colt. There is no sear block and this does have a bayonet lug, with heavy “C” marked bolt carrier.  If you want a true jewel and the ultimate safe queen then this is the rifle for you!
