I am looking at a semi auto AR that is described as having a 11.5" upper with a 5.5 inch hider. I don't have pics to look at but the seller says the upper has CH on the upper receiver. It is an upper with A1 sights.

CH is a Colt marking but did Colt make any 11.5 inch uppers with attached 5.5" hiders?

I wanted to know if somebody maybe used a Colt upper to make this or if it was a factory setup?
The upper is described as like new.

The lower is described as excellent, not Colt but a known maker.

Thanks for your help.

That upper sounds like the surplus Colt Commandos available all over right now. I'll bet this has a case deflector on the receiver as well. I would bet that someone legalized it by adding the 5.5 (permanently). I bought two of those surplus commandos for SBR's. They are top notch. They may have external finish wear but they weren't fired much. The guys who carried them only shot them when they goofed and that was not very often.
