    I figured I'd post some pics of mine. I would have had them up 2 weeks ago, but my FFL was on Vacay.

    Some notes:

    Lower roll mark is fantastic.
    No "C" on the BCG
    NO cage code on the charging handle.
    Huge gouge on the non-ejection upper where it meets the receiver extension. Classic Colt - not going to address.
    Has a Ton of oil on it, which makes me think someone other than a union Colt employee assembled it.
    Came with assorted rail panels. My 2017 Socom's did not not.

    I bought 2 of the 2017 SOCOMs, but this will be my only 2018.

    Thanks for posting the pics. I have my name on the waiting list at my FFL for this carbine.

    Noticed the serial number prefix is CR and not LE. This seems to be normal for this run and some other LE lines. I could care less but some folks will have a aneurism itís not an LE s/n. Seems hit and miss on the C marked BCG. Mine was not.

    Can you confirm with me the front sight base is not F marked? My Colt SOCOM upper I purchased through G&R was not F marked but it micíd out as a proper F base height. I was told Colt is not F marking their FSB anymore.

    FSB is NOT "F" marked. Well aware that Colt stopped doing this. Seems to be inline with the Matech on the rear

    Are they still putting the H2 buffer in it, or did they sacrifice that as well?

    So, why produce rifles that will disappoint their base? Does it really cost that much to address markings, etc.?
