is there a way to tell which upper a SP1 had on it when it left the factory?

I'd like to know if the original upper on my SP1 was a 20in a1 or a 16in a1.

Maybe Colt could tell you by the serial number?

Colt didn't split out SP1 serial numbers based on whether it was a rifle or carbine.

The only way to be sure is to call Colt.
Usually they will tell you a production date, but I'm not sure if they'll tell you whether it was a rifle or carbine.
