i just read in the black rifle 2 that in 2001 Colt marked the bolt with a large C where the mpc goes to indicate that it was intended for commercial sale. It didnt say anything about a CS in there but CS could deffinantly mean "C" comercial "S" sale. BRII shows a pic of the bolt and it was done with an engraving pen by hand .

I just recently purchased a Colt "CS" A1 length stock which actually has the letters raised on the stock itself. From what I have heard, they are pretty hard to come by. It is a very, very nice unit. Since I have had it, I have wondered what it stood for. I figured "Colt" something.

Will be nice to know if someone has a definite answer.

In your case, "Colt Sporter". They came on the R6530 Sporter Lightweight carbines in 1991.

You da man! (IM sent...)



That was in reference to the buttstock markings. SPORTER bolts were not marked CS, but some buttstocks were.

I have a few colt le 6920's and the last one i purchased NIB has a CS marked bolt. I called colt and asked why the bolt was marked CS compared to MPC like the others i have. The guy at colt advised me that as long as it was marked with a C it was a colt bolt and refused to give me anymore info other than to tell me sometimes bolts are marked differently.

Calling Colt is not at all a sure way to get good info, never know what moron you are going to talk to. Notice that variablebinary (Spelling?) bolt does not have a C on it, but it is the correct bolt:
