Colt Model AR-15/M-16
Model 639 with factory moderator.

Wow! This AR-15 is one fantastic collectible from the History of the M-16. This is the model that was slated for export. The moderator on this gun was installed by colt to change the sound signature on the gun to mimic that of a rifle. This was done to hide and mask the location of special forces troops, so the enemy would think that they were being attacked by the regular army, from a different location. The BATF, in the late 70's, make a ruling that the moderator was a suppressor is it's normal use, and made all the owner's register them as such, so this is a two-tax gun. This is only the 2nd one of these that have come in and out of our doors over the years. This is your chance to own a piece of history!
