    Help on carry handle identification

    I searched everywhere and could not find an answer to my question.Can anybody tell me if either of these carry handles are made by Colt? I bought them separately but was told they were Colt by the sellers.

    The upper carry handle is made by Cardinal Forge or at least the forging was. They do make them for Colt and LMT along with others.

    The lower carry handle is unknown. Hoped this helped.

    Indeed. You can find the same forge mark on carry handles from Colt and NON-Colt guns.

    Colts' forge mark is a square, correct?

    Yeah. That square comes on SOME Colt carry handles. But I've got a BCM that also has that square on it.

    The square is only the forging mark. It doesn't tell you who finish machined the part or what quality of hardware they put in the carry handle.
