I have a lower with a serial number MH 031xxx. Is there a resource to research if this is a manufactured pre-ban rifle or a date of manufacture?

thanks in advance

http://old.ar15.com/legal/serialNumberList.asp You can also call Colt.

I have the same rifle and my serial number is MH 04XXXX. When I called colt I was told for that series of rifles all serial numbers MH 086020 and below were pre-ban. How much did you pay for your lower, if you don't mind telling.

I have a MH063XXX that I paid $865 for.

Leadfoot's number above is correct. Any MH prefix below that number is preban. Anything above is postban, according to Colt.

I appreciate the replies. I paid around $900 for the complete rifle in its original configuration. It was only after I put a shorter and lighter barrel (with a bayonet lug) and a collapsable stock that I found out there were legalities involved. I then joined the NRA hoping that my two cents will help the already sloping litigations involving these and other unattractive gun regulations.

You got a very good deal. I'm sure you will enjoy the rifle.
