    New to Me Colt AR15A4

    Finally got one. I'm sure it's been fired but not much. There's barely any marks on the shell deflector or BCG. Looks like it might have had a trigger put in it but the Colt trigger was put back in before they sold it. Missing the manual but have most everything else. Going to have to find a manual. Will try to keep the miles off it but still enjoy it. May or may not end up with an ACOG.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    Too bad, I have two but they're both the two earlier models.

    Careful shooting won't show many miles. it's carrying it through the day's work that adds road rash to them.

    Probably built from the unused parts from the M16A4 parts left over when the US military moved to the M4 series carbines. Colt is known to never throw out good parts that can be sold.

    Thanks fellers. I've put a few rounds through it and it shot well in spite of the factory trigger. Been sick so I haven't been able to do any more but I'm on the mend now, thankfully.
