This is an example of a very desirable original Colt Firearms Division commercially manufactured fully automatic M16 rifle from the 9 million serial number range. Adjustable pin front and two-leaf windage adjustable rear sights, with a non-factory replacement PGRS1 muzzle brake on the "C MP CHROME BORE" marked barrel, bayonet lug, triangular handguard, low-profile casing deflector and oval forward assist on the upper receiver. The lower receiver has a "fenced" magazine catch and a three position right handed "SAFE"/"SEMI"/"AUTO" selector. The full auto bolt carrier is "C" marked with proper serrations and an "MPC" marked bolt head, and a one piece buffer is installed. Fitted with a checkered pistol grip and a fixed buttstock with "16" marked on the left side of the buttplate, possibly an inventory/rack number.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 95% plus original matte black phosphate finish, showing a touched up area near the bolt catch, a pattern of wear on the barrel consistent with the use of a clamp-on silencer or similar device, and mild handling marks overall. The furniture is in equal condition. Mechanically excellent. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
