Up for your consideration are original (NOT reproductions) Colt manufactured “C” marked M16A1 Grips that came off of milspec U.S. Army A1’s. These are authentic Colt manufactured grips. They are denoted by a raised “C” mark on the inside of the grip near the top. These grips are in FAIR Condition, which is as follows:
- No Cracks or bulges, will be dents and/or chips through out the grip. Some smoothing with a Dremel wheel can usually fix this right up.
- There may be some moderate discoloration/mottling, but this is due to age and use in service. Looks great with natural patina; again, does not affect structural integrity of grip whatsoever. You can choose to leave as is or refinish.
- Will be cleaned and ready to go for your rifle; looks great and is a nice budget friendly grip that is still Colt, but doesn’t break the bank. Grip may require some additional refinishing to obtain desired look, but it definitely works. Some of the checkering may be worn smooth, but will have art least 50% checkering.
The grip you will receive will look similar to the one pictured. This is NOT a reproduction. This is the real thing, and would be perfect for your clone (or original) rifle.
