Have a 20" Colt A1 upper for sale. 20" chromelined slick side receiver(no forward assist) in excellent condition. Triangular handguards are in new condition. Complete, only thing missing is the flash hider. This is perfect if you want to get the 3 prong hider for that correct vietnam look.

Askin $295.00 located in Orange County.SOLD

Are there any markings on the receiver? Markings on the barrel? Markings on the front sight base?


Do you have any pics?

It has the tiny colt proofmarks on the receiver, C MPC on the barrel, I'll have to check if there's any markings on the front sight block when I get home this afternoon.

I'd be interested in this piece. Would you be willing to meet somewhere so I could check it out? In what part of OC do you live?

Twist rate is 1/12, I believe all A1 20" barrels are like that.

Local pick ups can certainly arranged.

There are only a handfull of sources for Milsurp Complete A1 uppers (Minus Bolt/Carrier and CH) best known and few left with them in stock right now being (gunnyssurplus.com) and (Ohio Ordanance) so I was hoping you knew the provanance of your Upper and perhaps could share a different source with those of us seeking sources for milsurp A1 complete upper halfs for retro builds ... Thanx Anyhoo

That's not an A1 upper, that's a "slick" upper as it's missing the forward assist.

The A1 has the "Tear drop" forward assist

You can find out that sort of stuff on this handy thing called the internet.

There was also a History Channel special on the M16.

Yes I'm aware of that, I put A1 because I think that's the simplest way to describe it since most people have a general idea on what an A1 looks like, versus if I try to describe it as a either a slick side/Vietnam/M16E1/XM16E1...etc.

but you're absolutely right and thank you for the correction.

And it means what you have there is earlier, rare-er, and easily worth the asking price.
