there are the three different versions.

version 1. made by colt mfg, marked safe and semi.

version 2. made by colt defense marked safe and fire

from what i have gathered, all guns are very nice and are prized by their owners.

OK, well what is the explanation for the lower differences in semi v. fire and Colt Defense v. Colt Manuf.? Mine is a "Version 3" and while it's pretty cool, I don't find it to be any more well made or finished than my RRA, which, btw, has milspec fire control pins and no silly "sear block" in the back. I got mine for collector purposes.

Yes, but your RRA has a silly high shelf sear block which accomplishes the same PC thing. Your RRA also has it's own unique spec in the area of the rear takedown lug. Definitely, not "mil-spec". BTW, I'm not bashing RRA as I think they are one of the better makers and I've used several of their receivers for builds. In fact, I prefer them when I can't get Colt receivers. I'm just trying to squash the spreading of misinformation about Colt.

I have more Colts than anything (3 colts, 2 Bushmaster, 2 RRA). Colt is great, but I can't distinguish much in the way of function ,fit, and finish between the two RRA's. I'm not bashing Colt, just not saying they crush the competition.

What specificly is the difference in the takedown pin dimensions? I could care less about the high sear shelf.

RRA machines the gap where the takedown lug goes a little tighter to create a better fit between upper and lower receivers.

I think I'm gonna have to get one!

There are inconsistencies with Colt. Three coworkers and I bought them in 1997 ($760 ish). What is different than your list for ALL the ones we bought:

No m4 stamp
No RAS numbers
No ribbed telestock

Also, although the front pivot holes were small, they did not have pushpins (screw instead) and they were not drilled for pins either.

See page 6 with pics:

Don't know if this is a fourth version. I have one with version 2 but has a heavy barrel underneath the handguard. Verified it is heavy barrel, as first thing I did was handguards off and sure enough, the barrel does not taper like in the standard M4. Blue label on box says LE6920HB. Purportedly only 300 were made by Colt Defense. Did I hit gold here? I think I'm gonna pick up a second one since I'm now bitten by the AR bug BIG TIME. If I wasn't married, I'd pick up the rest of their stock.
