    So uh, what markings on the other side?


    I count myself fortunate to have found a holy grail piece for my 11 year - so far - Colt 727 project.

    Is the lower dated in the 90's ? I have a preban 30rd mag 91' that would go with your lower

    I put a new anti tilt follower in it .

    I honestly don't know the date. I just know that the commercial Colt markings were "correct".

    I feel a little awkward asking Colt about the serial of an M16A2.

    I appreciate the offer on the mag - I've got quite a few from that era that a buddy carried in Desert Shield/Storm. I was often tempted to sell them since they are preban, but the personal ties inspired me to keep them. If I get the coin soon for some of your uppers perhaps I request the 1991 mag be added for more $.

    I collect military issue M16 mags to a mild degree. Mostly FN and Colt.
