Factory original transferable M16A2 Commando I had several years ago...
There are three ways you could find the manufacturing date of your Colt AR.How do I find out what year this is. Regular Colt lookup does not show up? Is it different for AR.......
First, Thank you. Second Outstanding Firearm! I checked the bag and nothing stamped on it, so I will investigate further. Thanks again.There are three ways you could find the manufacturing date of your Colt AR.
First if you still have the factory plastic bag (we old guys call it birth bag) there might be a date printed on the bag, but not always.
Second, remove your top handguard and look just behind the front sight base on the barrel, under the gas tube, should be MM/ YY stamped on it.
Third, what the other member said just call Colt but they don't have reliable data base with AR serial numbers.
