Does anyone know for sure if 5. But having older eyes, I found a Colt Flat-Top upper receiver to switch to for a good scope, but have not taken time yet. I easily shot Rifleman at an Appleseed a few years ago with it, using some crappy Malaysian ball I had and an M1 Carbine sling. It is a compilation of both personal information and information submitted from others, mostly from the Internet. But I don't want everyone to laugh at me. The writing on the barrel is almost invisible.
Be careful using any of the lower cost steel cased ammo as you might get a bad jam. I had to shine a flash light at an angle to create enough shadow on the ridges to read it. I get your curiosity, and I'm getting a kick out of learning something. My only complaint is it was over 10 pounds when fully loaded. I'm also tall, find the M16 configuration pretty compact already, and think. Serial number has it dated as a pre-ban, around 93 I believe. As expected, it performed flawlessly-despite a fairly demanding course of fire.
Great shooters and very accurate when you develop a load for it as with any rifle. No doodads or anything extra needed for that rifle, it's good enough right out of the box. Any help would be appreciated, I'm sure there's a serial number list somewhere but I just don't know where it lives. Includes 2 30rd magazines and 1 40rd magazine, sling, and a hard case. I actually like the open sights on this rifle and they are dead on.
It shoots better than I, and is pretty solid all the way. I wanna keep it stock but if i ever wanna have fun with it can i do anything to it? Comes with 2 mags which i never seen before. Just be sure of what you want before buying. I have compiled this list for the purposes of sharing information only. This will be my first Ar if bought? I don't shoot it much now but still love the rifle and I will someday give it to my son as I get older. It seems like it might be pretty cool to have an earlier model, but I'm not too sure about performance vs contemporary models. Civilian copies of the military M16A2 are perfectly legit rifles for most purposes.
I think I'm really out of my league. I used to feed it that old Norinco stuff too before Clinton banned it. The R6600 is definitely a good piece of hardware that with the proper care will outlast you. I don't how much about these, so I'm open to info. Back in 93 I purchased a Match Hbar and did not use the rifle very often. So curious how i did on this particular model. The problem is that Colt changed their serial numbering system sometime in the late '90s or early '00s, I think.
Just found another guy selling one. Some sold commercially to police departments, small numbers to foreign militaries such as Malaya, India, Australia, Burma, and Singapore. Congratulations on your new rifle! With a custom load it should do much better. However, mine has a removeable carry handle which I found to be very important as I began to modify mine as time went on. They will send a letter documenting this and allowing the original manufacturer to proceed with the replacement. This one is unmolested so far. That, and they added a neat-o little steel block in the lower receiver to prevent an autosear from ever being installed.
These are the people that forged the upper for them. Serial numbers in this range were not run in order. Mine shoots great and not had any problems. Anybody knows about them and if they are any good? These were used as replacement parts by Anniston. I also like the fact that with the carry handle, I'd end up with a pretty high mounted scope. I either have to drop the stock, or put a riser on the rib.
The barrel stamp is the most important, that is what you should pay attention to. I've read in some threads that I can go by the barrel stamp and safely shoot 5. But this one has never been fire since he bought new in 93. This is not intended to be used in any way except for personal entertainment. I'm pretty sure what you got is legit. Here is more info on the subject than you probably want! Anyone have experience with the accuracy of these prior to any mods? Can maybe throw in a couple extra new in package 30rd mags, This rifle is very accurate and shoots well.
