Standard FSB or the "F" marked FSB?

"F" Marked FSB are for flat top receivers (M4, A3, A4).

The real M16A3 was made by FN and was identical to the M16A2 except that the FCG was Safe-Semi-Auto selectable. It was not a flat top.

The misconception that -A3 designated flat tops began when Bushmaster began selling flat top uppers and added the A3 suffix to their rifles. The Bushmaster flat top receiver was dimensionally different from the M4 marked flat top upper receivers made by Colt.

The M16A4 as made by Colt was the first USGI flat top version of the M16 rifle.

The F stamped FSB's are 0.04" taller than the standard FSB in order to accommodate the slightly taller rail of the Colt M4 stamped flat top uppers.
