    Did Colt Ar's with serial# sp339xxx come with green furniture? I'm guessing its after market but not sure.
    Its on GB if anyone wants to give some feedback or advice.

    I don't think any civilian Colt R6000 were offered in green. Early Colt 601's in the military had the green. I could be wrong.

    Here is a good site done my ex military AR enthusiats for retro rifles.

    Never heard of a Sporter II having green furniture from Colt.

    If you look at pictures #13, 20 & 22, it clearly shows scraped
    away green paint. So the furniture has been painted or DuraCoated.
    Looks a lot like DuraCoat's color "MagPul foliage green"

    Thanks for the info. Yes it looks painted, what did you think about the rest of the pics? Do you think its worth a 1K bid?

    It's a pre-ban,.....internals look correct, price is reasonable.

    When brand new Colt 6920s are available for around the same price? Nope.

    Unless you live in a ban state or something. Even then, I'd opt for one of the ban-compliant current production Colt models.

    I agree with you, I find myself putting a bid in, looks like a pretty good specimen.
