This might be a repost, but I was wondering what is the difference between those two, since I just gotten my M-16 Bolt and Carrier which i will be building my rifle in less than 36 hours !

I picked it up aand it only cost me 5 extra bucks instead of the Ar-15. How can I tell the difference between those since I have been looking at Pictures online and I dont see anything , there isnt any marking on mine. Due to several threads saying that the Law Officers might give you a hard time if they find out its a M-16 on your rifles but I dont think that is an issue anymore unless Im wrong....

Let me know :)

1) Colt "C" style Carrier
2) Normal AR-15 Carrier
3) Colt "SP1" style Carrier
4) M-16 Carrier

AR15 and M16 bolts are the same....no differences AFAIK.

if it looks the same, whats the big fuss about it ? Thanks for the picture, that helps ...

I just dont want to bring my black rifle to the Range and then some Pricks from the Law comes up to me and says this is a M-16 blah blah...

so what do you suggest me to do ? just do this outdoor range only ?

no "prick" from law enforcement is going to give two shits about what carrier you have in your rifle. just wear your tin foil helmet and you'll be fine.
