Default M16A2/M4 SOPMOD With M203 Build Thread

I've always had a thing for Colt rifles, especially their SOPMOD with the M203. The hardest part of this build was trying to find a Colt lower that isn't marked "M4 CARBINE" or "PISTON CARBINE". I was one of the very lucky few to score a SUPER RARE Colt lower marked "M4 COMMANDO". Apparently, these were special ordered by a foreign government for export. The next thing that would be hard to find was a proper M203 37MM launcher that doesn't sit high like the newer ones. This was a PITA because you never see them for sale. I forgot to mention, I also scored a military issued carbine length M203 handguard as well.

Needless to say, my build is coming along just fine so far I'll post updates in the near future...

Update #2: The M4 COMMANDO lowers are definitely a rare piece of Colt history for those of us the in the U.S. who were able to score them, because they're special ordered for Prima Armi, which hold exclusive rights as the distributor for Colt firearms in Europe, meaning they're the only official distributor of Colt firearms of all Europe and sell only to EU countries. The only other official M4 Commando marked lower that Colt has produced was the "M4 COMMANDO ENHANCED", which had select fire options of either semi, burst, or auto.




Another bit of info on these M4 COMMANDO lowers is that every single one is made to be put on either a 14.5 or 12 inch SBR. There is no 16 inch barreled M4 COMMANDO in the European market, only the 14.5 or 12 inch variants.

It's an older CMP model launcher.
