Manufactured by Colt for commercial sale, the AR-15 614 automatic rifle was patterned very closely after the early military issued M16 rifle, with the chief difference being in the markings. Post front and two-leaf peep rear sights, with a threaded muzzle on the "VP" and "M" marked barrel, bayonet lug on the front sight base, triangular handguard, checkered pistol grip and fixed buttstock, sans trapdoor. The early "slick side" pattern upper lacks provision for a forward assist or a casing deflector and is marked with a boxed "C" on the front right side over a "VP" stamp, while the lower has a fenced magazine catch on the right, and is marked on the left with the three-block AR-15 trademark, "MOD.614" model marking, and Colt address, the latter spaced to accommodate the pin for the auto sear, and a right-handed "SAFE"/"SEMI"/"AUTO" selector. The bolt and bolt carrier are both matte phosphate finished, the former marked "MP" and the latter fitted with a stainless steel gas block and properly unserrated. With a nylon sling. Missing flash suppressor. Provenance: The Al Walker Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent with 90% plus matte black finish, showing light scratches and handling marks overall, a small amount of touch-up black around the bolt catch, a band of wear around the barrel ahead of the sight, and contact marks on the carry handle from use of a scope (not included). The furniture is also excellent, with a few mild scuffs. 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) that is classified as a "Curios or Relic" as defined in 27 CFR, 478.11. These weapons are still subject to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
