On an auction site, anybody know if Colt actually made this upper with a short barrel and a permanently attached long flash hider?

I'm pretty sure that's a cut down 16" SP1 with an "XM177E2" clone flashider perm. attached. I could be wrong though. Wait for Ekie to come along.

Saw that today myself. Not sure what it is, but it is not something that came out from Colt, but some of the parts look to be Colt's (like the upper rec. and the delta ring).

That first pic does not claim to be factory, this one, however does.





Seems strange to see two oddballs at the same time, both with claimed, or implied factory pedigree's.

I thought I had read once that these were a factory produced item, but I'd like to see some good documentation.

I have emailed the seller of the first one to confirm if its a colt marked barrel.

That one has been on gunbroker for a long time. Not sure what it is either, but the muzzle do dad is not a Colt item.

Don't think so.

No, but CMMG modified some Colts like that.

CMMG? I am not familiar with them, can you give me a full name?
