There's about another $1000 to go, $2700 or possibly more has been the mark as of late for a nice clean lower 1/3 production 90 degree safety "Costa Mesa" without scope but nice park and TIG welds.
I'm watching too.
As I mentioned above concerning the pricing on that clean Costa Mesa on GunBroker ... another nice one has been added that looks super clean. This one exhibits the 180° safety selector (Howa style) with modified lower markings of the last few hundred guns manufactured and/or assembled ... by ... Armalite in Costa Mesa.
The jury is still out on why these modified lower rifles are as such.
A good buy, given the current market, awaits someone.
Looks like they went thru a bit of effort to weld up the SEMI markings and move the selector stop location on those later Costa Mesa built guns.Bidders went back-and-forth to $3325.00, then as soon as bidder number one was locked in to buy that rifle, bidder number two went over to the other auction and bought the ''late" 180 degree safety rifle that had been recently listed for $2750.00 with a "Buy it Now".
WolfieSitting watching competitive bidders driving the price of the Costa Mesa mentioned earlier at in this thread higher and higher ... now $3300 and rising.
