I have a removable carry handle..it has an A on the left side by the sight. It is pretty smooth..no real sharp edges...it came off a Colt...not sure if it is a Colt...does the A mean anything? I am wanting to know what brand it is...thanks medcop e-mail me or post here....a link to a web page with proof marks would also help..thanks again!

the A looks the same, but it does not have the -9..other than that..it matches

Same here, my Colt det. handle has the same "A" but no 9... I am guessing here, but maybe it's meant for the 9mm AR version. Only thing I can come up with.

Some of the Colts used Bushmaster uppers and AA is an indication it's a Bushmaster. It's all stated on the link I posted above.

LOL! So much for the superiority complex displayed by some of the Colt snobs!
