    I have what I believe what Colt called the transitional model.

    It has the flash supressor, but no bayonet lug and a 16 inch barrel.

    I bought it new Jan 93 and the serial number shows it was made in 92.

    The ser # has LW in it.

    Like new, have not shot it in a few years.

    Ideas on value or what to call it?

    Boy, I love those!!!! Tell me about the pin size above the trigger.....large/small. Is the fence post drilled on the left side of the magazine well.....to accept the pin set-up (tooless taked down) is the fence rail on the right side or the receiver, just below the ejection port drilled??? Small hole, located in the middle of the upper fence rail. 1/8" hole. LTS


    ps/ Thats a Model R6830

    LTS, you had to dig to find that over there!!!!! When the board crashed over there, I never noticed if it was still there.

    I went and saw what you wanted, I will dig it out and take some more pics and send them your way.

    My orginal plan was to buy a upper in 223 and build a long range shooter, wound up buying a DPMS flattop HB complete from a "distress" sale instead.
