The Colt M4A1 was born out of a Special Operations Command (SOCOM) requirement and had a storied history in the hands of SOCOM personnel.
I got interested in the U.S. military small arms ‘cloning’ community in 2015 or so. My interest pretty much started with the initial SOPMOD program and ended with SOPMOD Block 1. I have been fortunate to find components over the years that were either new or like new and complete with all accessories. I have a few items to track down still.
Studying the evolution of the Colt M4 to M4A1 specification for SOCOM in conjunction with a purchase of a Decommissioned USMC M45A1 CQBP shot me over into the realm of Colt AR collecting.
I will begin to share some images and history in the future that pertain to the Colt M4A1 SOPMOD program.
