The photo below was posted by a group member showing his collection of various Colt LMG type upper receivers. Comments below are his.
“Current line up of LMG uppers.
I have a barrel for another version that I snagged and just need to assemble it. Also need a 606 and that should round it out. I know they have a 941 as well which was a flat top version of the 741 with an a2 barrel.

Colt/Knights Armament 9mm SMG Suppressed upper assembly. Built by Colt and Knights Armament in a joint project for the U.S. government. The suppressed upper receiver was to be used with the Colt 9mm RO633 or RO635 for covert operations.
Here are a couple of Colt/Diemaco light machine gun upper receivers owned by a group member.
Comments from the owner are below: “Interesting notes are the bayonet lug being added and pinned to the barrel, diameter of the barrel to the flash hider, diemaco tri rail, carry handle and extended charging handle and then the bipod.
Both LMG’s are complete with original Bcg and I have 2 buffers and springs.”
The CCA had their annual convention in Noblesville, IN this past weekend. Myself and a fellow Colt AR collector set up a two table display.
Shown in the photo below is the Colt IAR6940, Colt/Knights Armament IAR6940H prototype, Colt IAR6940 11.5″ barrel prototype, Colt CRM16A1, Colt LE6920SOCOM and Colt CRXM177E2.
The item that is ‘in the white’ (unfinished) is the IAR program prototype upper receiver that was made by Leitner-Wise.
Shown in the next photo are several one of a kind Colt AR-15’s.
Although we had the only Colt AR-15’s on display it was still an amazing show and we met some great people. The show next year is in North Carolina. My hope is to bring different Colt AR’s to display there if my schedule works out.
If you collect Colt firearms, I encourage you to support and join the Colt Collectors Association. As a member myself, I would love to see more of you join.
