| OY VEY!! I had my Colt Series mixed up! Thanks for the correction, Perry Shooter! Best, Joe (egg on face)
From my recollection* they were produced in limited numbers, as the new series were being tooled up for production at the same time as the 'BB' series.
Now, C&R? For a gun less than forty years old to qualify for C&R status, a determination will have to be made by ATF vis-a-vis the unique quality, or rarity. It will take a pro-active submission to ATF to ask them to evaluate. Best, Joe
Below is a page taken (PDF File) from the ATF website. It appears that the firearm being discussed in this post is in fact eligible to be handled as a Curio and Relic firearm. Best again, Joe
