Colt upper....supposedly full auto

Discussion in 'GATE AR-15 Forum' started by Silent Slayer, Feb 23, 2011.

  1. I got a guy selling a Colt upper that is advertised as full auto. I'm not really concerned about the full auto part (other than I like the heavier BCG's) I just want to make sure this cat is a straight shooter. So, on a Colt full auto upper is there anything that makes it different from a standard Colt upper (other than the BCG)? Thanks.

    Carrier is it but, as you know you can take any carrier and place it in any upper.
    If it was a FA upper the barrel is probably shot out or at least charred inside.
    Check for all of the normal Colt markings, In the last ban there were a bunch of guys buying Colts and swapping out Model 1 sales barrels and BCGs and reselling them as Colts.
