Colt AR-15 Model 614

Anybody know the exact history on these? Any difference from M16? why are they labeled the way they are? when/where were they sold.

Looking for anybody that has a good history lesson on these

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...rifle_variants, they are "...weapons for commercial or export sale."

M16(A1) was actually the US Govt designation for the weapon. 614 is simply Colt's and was mostly seen on export and private (non-Govt- Military anyway) sales. I am no expert but that is my understanding.

Look up "Foreign Military Rifles & Carbines". Find Singapore/Charter. Only 614 mentioned there.
