Colt M5 Carbine - 16" Semi Automatic Rifle with Fully Ambidextrous Lower Receiver

Enhanced Carbine with full ambi lower and M-LOK upper rail

The Colt M5 family of rifles has been in service with foreign militaries and law enforcement since 2017 and is just now, in mid-2022, making an entrance in the US commercial and law enforcement market.  For Colt fans, the full ambi lower and the new proprietary free float rail are sure to be crowd pleasers.  You can now have a Colt rifle that mirrors other military grade, full-ambi, 5.56 rifles like those from Knights Armament and LMT.

The M5, as introduced to international markets, came in 10.3, 11.5, and 14.5 inch varieties, all with a select fire mode (fully automatic). This model, at 16", is not an SBR.  The rifle is semi-automatic, and is designated as the Sentry model by Colt.  With a long product number of CM556-16-M5S, the S designates either Semi-Automatic or Sentry (the military models end in an A for automatic).

This is a new offering as of June 2022, and some pics and might not be 100% accurate, but we will update as we see more of the rifle.  Most of the stock pics are of the 14.5" model.  Charlie's team got a chance to look at the M5 and shoot it in full auto at the military range for Shot Show in 2020, so we have been asking for this ever since.

The magwell in the US has M5 markings and CR serial number prefix.  Charlie's had the change to take it outside and put it through the motions, and it is a nice, solid rifle that feels good in your hands.  The upper and rail just come together as if they were an integrated upper receiver group, and feels solid.  The lower has that heavy-duty feel and the ambi controls are a very welcome addition.  The CTR stock and Troy flip-up sights and slimline MLOK rail make for a solid package.  We recognize the price is a bit more than other rifles, but this is a new design and  the rail, the full ambi lower, flip-up sights and CTR stock all add to production costs over the 6920 Carbine.

Note:   Some pics are from the military full auto variant

THIS IS A SERIALIZED FIREARM.  It must ship to a Federal Firearms License holder.  No civilian exceptions.

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 FFL@CharliesCustomClones.com. Charlie’s does not reach to your FFL (MAKE THEM EARN THEIR FEE!!!)

 

5)     Be patient! In order to ensure we remain compliant with all federal laws, our compliance department is kept separate from our sales and operations team. Please allow a few days for our compliance officer to verify all of your dealer’s documents and ensure all federal laws are being observed. You should hear from our compliance department within 3-4 business days. If not, feel free to reach out for a status update.

 

That’s it! We try to make this process as simple as possible for our customers, but if you are unfamiliar the process or have any other questions, please visit our How to Buy a Firearm page for more details.

California and New York residents please, click here. The process may be different due to state specific laws.

NOTE: The free shipping option does not apply to full rifles, unless purchased with a riflescope.  If you choose free shipping at check-out, we will bill you for shipping later.
