As many of you already know, on the 7th of June, 2000, Olympic Arms experienced a devastating fire that destroyed our sales offices. In those offices were housed our current as well as archival records with regards to manufacture, acquisition and distribution of firearms. The books that we, as well as all federally licensed firearms dealers are required to keep are commonly known as "Bound Books", or "A&D" (acquisition & distribution) books.

These books, over 25 years of Olympic Arms history and data, were completely destroyed in that fire. All A& D book records prior to the 7th of June, 2000 are GONE. Period. This is an unfortunate situation that severely limits our ability to provide product information for any and all AR-15 style lower receivers and/or complete guns manufactured prior to that date. Because of this situation, all that we can provide is what you see below, a date "range" in which your serial number was manufactured.

Fluted barrel and FF tube with a chromed bolt carrier. Sorry, I couldn't tell you if that even sounds like something Oly was shipping out in 94-95.

The bbl is marked 223ss so it has a .223 cahmber and the bbl is stainless steel. Make sure not to shoot 5.56 or you might have problems.

Thanks for the serial # and heads up regarding 223 vs 556
