Did colt ever make a 16" barrel with rifle length gas? A friend just got issued an old colt that's full auto with rifle gas and a 16" barrel. The barrel hasn't been cut down, they said that's how it came. It also has triangular hand guards and no forward assist. Any ideas on the model?

I know next to nothing about retro ARs, but I think that is 607. Its basically an old-school Dissy.

it's doubtful it has a 16" barrel. and it won't be a Colt unless it's been cut down or maybe i missed that model. maybe a Bushmaster Dissipator. without pics he's def. full of it.

if that's what he has, it is damn sure a rare piece.

That is a 605 pictured, not a 604!

that picture looks about right, except it now has a m4 stock on it. I'll have to get some photos of it next time we go shoot.

i think you both are mistaken on what he has. yeah...pics should clear it right up. include some of the roll marks please.

the 605 has a 15" barrel, Colt never made one like that with a 16" barrel.

Yeah, I don't know muh about retro guns, but I knew I had seen something like what you are talking about.

16" bbl. w/ rifle length gas is a good combo too.
Link Posted: 9/12/2010 12:03:39 PM EDT
not sure of the exact barrel length, that was just a guess from looking at it the other night when i helped him clean it. Hopefully going shooting with him on tues again, i'll try and remember to bring my camera.

thats a pretty rare find indeed. i've only seen pictures of colt dissipators, and they were old pictures at that..
