I’ve been sitting on this carbine for quite a while, as it is one of my favorites. This gun is a replica of the Colt R6721, or commonly known as the Tactical Carbine. This one started with a preban Colt R6551 lower marked “Sporter Target”. This lower has the desirable magazine fence and other A2 reinforcements as well as a Mil-Spec sized front pivot pin. Pin is captured with a detent, not the two-headed screw together type.
The upper is a factory assembled R6721 conversion. It features an A3 flat top with matching removable carry handle. The barrel is a 16” heavy, with a 1/9 twist. The receiver and barrel both have the feed ramp cuts, and the receiver is properly marked with the “M4”. The front sight tower is of the “F” variety, to match the removable A2 sight. This gun also has the GI style side sling adapter.
A Colt Four Position Stock and double insulated M4 handguards round out the package.
To make sure that this gun looks as good as it does, the upper and lower receivers were sent off to Extreme Coat for their High Matte finish. This finish is the same as what Kimber uses, but their proprietary name is Kim-Pro. The front sight tower, delta ring, charging handle, and the removable carry handle have also been done. Everything matches perfectly. Also, just for the ergonomics, before the carry handle was refinished, we milled out the casting flash from inside. This extra machining step is something that I wish Colt did at the factory, but their lack of attention to detail was not missed here!
The condition of this gun is still, super, super minty. I’ve put less than 1K rounds, with no hiccups of any sort. Will ship with two refinished 30-rd USGI magazines.
Price for this package is $2000, but I’ll cover shipping costs to from my FFL to yours. If you local (Washington State), I can arrange for a viewing and a private sale.
