    Hello All,

    Just wondering what forge markings I should look for on a carry handle to know it is a Colt and it is not another brand or a knock off Chinese one. I know there are a bunch of markings out there, just didn't know if there was a complete list I can reference to. I have seen some for sale at gun shows with an A-# or AB marking with claims that they are off of Colts. Just wanted some sort of conformation. As always, your help is greatly appreciated!
     
  2. I will take some pics of my carry handle, or any markings that are on the handle. I dont use mine, I know its a Colt thow. Will post up in the morning for ya buddy!!!

    Thanks! :thumbsup: I appreciate it. Since you don't use it, would you consider selling it? (You can send me a PM, if you indeed do want to sell it.)

    The only marking on mine is the little square on the right hand side.
