I have posted this in other forums and the "differences" between the true issue gun and the civilian version may relate to the fact the contract (just like FN's M16 contract) specified Colt could not sell the same gun on the commercial market. This may be Colts way of:
1) cashing in on the hype associated with USMC issed gear
2) getting around the no civilian sales prohibition.
