Colt AR Question

Even though I don't even like AR's, I seem to be acquiring them anyways. A buddy of mine recently gave me an old 1991-92 vintage "Sporter Match HBAR" and I need a part. It's 100% as it left the factory EXCEPT for him replacing the butt plate at some point and, of course, the original is long gone. Well, I like stuff as it is supposed to be so I'm needing a proper Colt butt trapdoor butt plate of this era. I see that Windham Weaponry sells them but they aren't Colt and Colt does not sell them anymore. The rifle has never had more than a few boxes of ammo through it so I think it's worth saving as it's practically new. So, does anyone know where I can find the proper trapdoor butt plate? It has a butt trap in there and it even has the cleaning bits still in the bag. I don't know all the alphabet/number designations on these damn capitalist rifles! I guess it's for the A2 stock? You guys would know better than I do. Thanks in advance!

I used to be the same way. I started with AKs, then FALs. Picked an AR and didn’t really care for it. Then I got into cloning retro ARs and now I can’t stop.

Don't know if this matters to you but the trapdoor from the era of your buttstock had aluminum in the construction while the newer ones are plastic. Last time I looked Specialized Armaments did not have it in stock and I recall it was pricey.

Well, it seems that DPMS makes an aluminum trapdoor.
