And then there's my oddball. First two pics in the thread.

I bought in NIB in June 1990. Straight SP1 lower receiver in all manners, with R6601 markings.

You know what they say about confusion?

It just means you're learning something.

Unless you're Sgt. Bilko. He says there's money to be made in confusion.

Corrections made, due to the small hammer/trigger pins I moved it back in the time line.

Have not been typing out the SP prefix, did not do it on the SP1 data base, and don't feel like typing all those SP's now. Call me lazy, ha.

The 1970's Colt bolt were marked MPC with the M and the P run together. To differentiate later bolts like yours I add the bit about there being a space the M and P. Make sense?

And thanks for the info.

That would be a lot of SP's wouldnt' it?

That's right. The one leg of the M was shared with the leg of the P, wasn't it? I think I've seen pictures like that. Yes, mine is not like that.

Yes, there are quite a few SP1's in the data base, alot of "SP" typing to do.

You got it, that is one way to date a bolt. One of the reasons for the data bases, to establish such variation.

Based on that one close up pic looks to be a SPII upper on a 6601 lower.

Ekie,

The second pic that "dpmmn" posted looks identical to the rollmarks on my 6601. Also, additional info is on the way to you .
