    TROOPS;
    I'd appreciate some professional advice here to help me identify an old Colt Upper AR15.....There are no serial numbers --- markings on receiver are C in a square and inverted triangle with VP inside of triangle---stamp is located just behind slip ring on right side of receiver...Sight is A-1...Other characteristics are there is a forward assist; the suppressor is a three prong some folks call it *duck bill.* The weapon is a greyish color not black or close to black in color....The take down pin is larger than the pivot pin...Bayonet lug.....Barrel is 16 inches and it is thin in appearance it is a carbine style barrel.....That's all there is as far as identification....Need your assistance in the year or year range--type of barrel(chrome etc)--- Rifling--12 to 1 etc.... Approximate value--in very good condition...Thanks in advance for your time........

    well the rifling is likly 1 in 7 sounds almost like an early m-4 could be just an assemblance of parts that someone built to ther liking what is the chambering 5.56 ? the duck bill type were mostly 60-early 70s what kind of for arm is it triangulated or more of a round style ?
