Colt factory rifle with Charlie's mods - AR15A4

Step into the rich history of combat weapons with a classic M16A4 clone rifle.  Whaaat?  Okay, tell me I am wrong.  Charlie's has taken the Colt AR15A4 and added hardware to give this rifle authenticity.  This is the M16A4 in a semi-auto version.  Colt reintroduced after a lengthy hiatus, this authentic, semi-automatic Colt AR15-A4, and Charlie's has added the classic M5 RAS quad rail, originally produced by Knights Armament, as well as an authentic UID label to give you the look and feel of the M16A4.  This rifle offers a rare chance for firearm enthusiasts and collectors to experience military firearms history, while also delivering the robust reliability expected of modern sporting rifles. Engineered with a 20" 1:7 Twist Government Profile Chrome Lined Barrel and an A2 Fixed Buttstock, this rifle provides an unmatched combination of precision, control, and durability.

The look and feel of an actual M16A4, and it is Colt.  From the 20" "C" marked barrel, to the bolt on carry handle, Colt ambi safety and A2 buttstock, all straight from the factory.  Now, enter the ingenuity of the bros at Charlie's Custom Clones, who have attached a milspec M4 quad rail RAS, and what is not to get whoop-diddy-do excited over?  Pure dope.  Bad to the bone.

Buying and shipping through Charlie’s is easy, but there is some information you need to know. Only a federally licensed firearms dealer may receive a firearm or federally regulated serialized item (like a receiver or suppressor). We cannot ship these items directly to you. Please follow these steps to process your transaction:

1)     Check your state laws to make sure the federally regulated item you want to purchase is legal in your state. Your FFL dealer should be able to give you all of the necessary information regarding your state specific laws. But, if we ship to your FFL, and there is a legal issue, we cannot accept a return. So please make sure that you know and follow your local and state laws.


2)     A quick google search will show you what Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealers are in your area. When you are ready to purchase, contact the FFL dealer you would like to use and get their shipping address. During the check-out, put YOUR address in the “billing” section and the FFL DEALER’S address in the “shipping” section. If you don’t know your FFLs address, that’s okay. You can send the information later.


3)     After check out, make sure to contact your FFL dealer to ensure they will receive your shipment for you (most do this for a small fee, but you should always double check).


4)     Have your dealer send us a copy of their FFL to Charlie’s does not reach to your FFL (MAKE THEM EARN THEIR FEE!!!)

You should hear from our compliance department within 3-4 business days. If not, feel free to reach out for a status update.
