Man, I just spent a long time browsing through old threads looking for one that had the answer to the same question you asked, as I remembered it from a while back.

I finally located it:

and, lo and behold, you were the one who asked it in that thread as well.

Sporter II's aren't transitional rifles per se. Transitioanal rifles are Colt rifles made around 1990 or so and have slab side lowers, may or may not have a sear block, and a Blue label upper (no bayonet lug), and has a bolt carrier cut out on the rear of it.

The Sporter II was the the first Colt AR after the SP1's, think they just up all the SP1 uppers, mated them to Nato 1/7" twist bbls until they ran out of the SP1 uppers then after that they came out with the HBAR, Govt Model, etc with A2 sights.

The Sporter II is the only Colt AR15 I know of that has a black recoil buffer with orange tip.

They're not as sexy as the latest LEO models but they're great guns. Mines in the SP327xxx serial number range

+1 Colt AR15 Sporter II. I used to have this same exact transition rifle model back in '84 - '85.

I sold my '71 Colt SP1 to buy it, I should have kept my SP1.

Here's a pic link from member AssaultRifler at the Colt Industry section.

Let's see your Colts. . . . pic thread link

Not much joy in being called a liar and a thief! Why not just post some pictures and list what it is? If you explain that you bought it that way, I doubt you will have a hard time selling it.


Pictures are the way to go when trying to sell anything.
