Really neat rebuild of an original Colt “PROPERTY OF U.S. GOVT.” “M16A1” marked machine gun. Colt rampant logo on left side of magazine well with factory applied “COLT AR-15” markings. One original Colt 20 round magazine, and one 30 round magazine is included as well a military technical service manual and black military web sling. This gun features triangular handguards, full bird cage muzzle break, and bolt forward assist so familiar to military personal who carried these rifles through combat. Consignor states that this rifles lower assembly was cut and discarded by the U.S. Government, after which John Stemple rebuilt it and registered it as fully transferable. This is exact the way this rifle looks too as the left side of the magazine well has a slight yet distinct “hump” running vertically down the entire length through the tail of the horse all the way down through the first digit of the serial number. The appropriate characters were re-cut upon remanufacture. A wonderful piece of workmanship. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish extremely fine to near excellent as refinished upon remanufacture with correct looking dark finish on lower assembly. Upper assembly has a somewhat lighter sheen, with some noticeable scratches to the finish of the barrel. Some dust of green verdigries is in the muzzle break. Barrel is marked “CMP CHROME BORE”. Composite furnishings are near excellent, as is sling. Magazine has lost nearly all its finish to a gray metal sheen. Bore is near excellent shiny and bright. Bolt is near excellent. Mechanics are crisp. This is a select-fire machine gun. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4.
