are those really FN/Colt hybrid upper?
could the C mean something else? or is the C there because that FN is build under license?

FN doesn't have to have the "C".  I've had many FN only marked for decades.  Bag the dual upper came in had the FN cage code on the wrapper.  It is a mystery.

Our FN M4A1s have been coming with the FN “C” uppers. I saw raw forgings with this marking at the factory, so I don’t believe the “C” is affiliated with Colt.

FN was getting parts from Chiptec. The "C" has nothing to do with Colt.

So the F does not indicate FN?

Every Colt until recent has been traditionally marked C.

And FN with an F.


Surely there is significance to these markings.

Sent them a email.  We'll see.  So, Colt and FN are outsourcing their parts?  Why would Chiptec use Colts "C" that's been known for over 1/2 century?

Hm, gotta be interesting if CD doesn't know.

To be fair, it does look quite a bit fatter than the Colt C.

I brought this to light about 2 years ago.  Received new in wrapper FN caged coded uppers with the C on it.  Label had FN cage code on it also, not Chiptec's cage code.

We know that Colt outsources, at a minimum.


"C" markings disappeared,  replaced by Colt CAGE. I cannot see the "C" indicating anything else.
Link Posted: 4/12/2020 3:00:38 PM EST
At SHOT show FN had a military contract M4 on display.  The upper receiver had the FN CAGE code and C just like the one in the picture here.  I asked one of the FN reps if it stood for Colt and he got really offended.  He said they absolutely do not receive parts from Colt.  However, he could not explain what the C marking was for and said it was a forge marking.
Link Posted: 4/12/2020 7:18:43 PM EST
It is interesting that the Cage Code is part of the forging instead of being added after via engraving or roll marking. I'm not sure why manufactures even leave forge markings on stuff. It already being machined, why not clean it up?

You can pick up a MaTech from Amazon (through MaTech) for $75 if you're wanting to go new.  I'm in the same boat as far as RAS rail.  I don't want to spend $250 for a new one, so I'm just patiently waiting for a used one to pop up that isn't on a bidding site.

The details are in the 10.3 thread. Basically asked specs on barrel, was told .070" gas port. Barrel arrived with .079" gas port and a big "3" laser engraved on the side of it. Was told to return it but they didn't offer return shipping labels, which meant I had to come out of pocket for shipping. He said he never told me he wasn't going to pay for the return shipping, not sure how hes gonna do that though. I know my software won't let me issue a return for a greater dollar value.

Still waiting to see how it all goes down. Barrel should arrive Saturday to them.
