Colt-Branded A.R.M.S. #05 Multi-Base Mount

The Colt-branded A.R.M.S. #05 Multi-base Mount was used on the Colt Sporter Competition HBAR “Range Select” rifle which replaced the AR-15A2 Delta HBAR in 1992 (information provided by Small Arms Solutions). You can see more information on the R6700CH Sporter Competition HBAR here on The Colt AR15 Resource at this link: .

I do not know if the mount was ever marketed as a separate accessory.
