Colt AR-15 A2 Gov't Carbine

6520

  • used police gun

This belonged to a Douglas County Sheriff's Office deputy who was selling some of his guns to go to law school.

I purchased this from him in March 2020.

  • no box or other accessories

marked RESTRICTED MILITARY / GOVERNMENT / LAW ENFORCEMENT / EXPORT USE ONLY

This was required during the assault weapons ban (AWB) of 1994 - 2004.

These have been legal for civilians to own since the ban expired in 2004.

After the ban expired in 2004, Colt continued to apply the RESTRICTED roll mark on their AR-15s until about 2012.

Note that the IDF carbines have A1 style sights.
