ok, who is the sharpest tack in the box, the brightest bulb in the marque, the 10X'r....??
i found a model 6420 Colt AR-15 A2, according to all the info i can find they were marked "Carbine"..., this one says "Sporter II" & the S/N is "SP 31xxxx"
is this a FAKE ?? according to what Stokes said it must be.......!
whats your best opinion on this ??
I have seen one labled "Sporter II Carbine"
The "carbine" is kinda small and nothing like the CC "Colt Carbine" markings.
the Sporter II part is correct, I am unsure if ALL were marked "Carbine"
Don Francis says:
"That brings use to the Sporter II carbine(R-6420). In the early
guns these changes from the SP1's were seen.
Barrel with 1in7" twist
Square front sight post
finger-grooved pistol grip
A2 style delta ring
Forward assist went the same as for the R6500, with defector
humps also seen."
both of those 6420's have the exact same markings, if the word "Carbine" is on the rifle it must be hidden, i am going to call the owner & Colt today & inquire more deeply, this really bums me out, i thot i found two jewels, but they are just "different" 6420 Colts or did someone change the lowers ?
who is Don F. ?
