    Newbie to this but how does one figure out when his rifle was manufactured if it is possible. Mine is a A2 SP 31805x and is supposed to be preban. That is, mine has 6 digits These are 5 digits prior written here

    I have a Govt Model, preban, purchased in 1989. The week I purchased, Colt announced they would discontinue manufacture of AR15s. They later started again with the Colt Sporter model. Mine is an exact copy of what the Military was using including bayonet lug. Serial number is GS0040XX.

    Here you go. This is a great site for Colt information, just click on the civilian or commercial link and it has the serial number list.

    I think U answered my question. Mine is a Sporter model so post ban, which is ok. Your GS must mean Governament Service?
