I have a colt m4 barrel and all the colt barrels I have ever seen before have just a C on them but this one is marked ( C ) with prentices . It is a barrel only not part of a complete rifle. Anyone else see one like that? thanks

I think someone mentioned something along those lines just last week? I had never seen or heard of one before. What is the date on the barrel?

Well, I looked for it but it didnt have a date on it like the others do. Up close to the FSB where the date should be it just had 15 on it. There is also on F on the FSB but it does have the correct one on it because I measured it. Also, no white paint dot that I see on most of them. Maybe that isn’t done to barrels only and part of the inspection after barrel is installed.

Sounds like a 94 or early 95 barrel. Does it have a 4 stamped onto the barrel extention?

Wonder if ar_mcadams got his from Eagle Firearms?

I recently got one from them and mine is marked like that (C) and does not have a date code. It also doesn't have an "F" stamped FSB or the "4" mark on the barrel ext. even though it does have the M4 feedramps. Strange huh?

I remember that barrel, could not remember who's it was though. Got a link to that discussion?

I believe this is the thread you are thinking about? It wasn't started by me and mostly focused on an equally strange variant but I did chime in about the one I mentioned above...

Yep, that is the thread I was thinking of.
