Limited Production Colt M4 lower receiver with mk18 Crane Logo, 2018 vintage

This is a factory Colt receiver - superior quality with custom MK18 Crane logo.  FN, LMT, Colt, Knights Armament make rifles for the US Military.  When it came to the Mk18, Colt M16s were first used by the US Navy, and now you can own a Crane Mk18 Mod0 Colt lower.  This is a customized Colt lower, with the Mk18 Mod0 Crane logo for your Mk18 build.  Factory virgin Colt lower (can be a pistol build if you wish), with customized engraving on the left magwell.

Charlie's has researched the original Mk18 Mod0 Crane issued rifles, and has worked to find the period correct logo, and commissioned the engraving on this high quality lower receiver.  Only 10 Colt pistol eligible Mk18 Mod0 lowers were made.

Features:

  • Forged 7075 aluminum
  • Hardcoat anodized
  • Compatible with Mil-Spec AR-15 lower parts
  • Precise tolerances
  • Perfect for a rifle or pistol build (factory Colt delivered lower, not a rifle take-off)
  • Original factory lower, shipped as a replacement receiver, and you will get the original factory box, so this can be legally built into a pistol.
  • Custom engraved with historically correct NSWC Crane logo exclusively for Charlie's Custom Clones

 

As a buyer, you should know that this is very high priced.  This is an extremely limited production item (less than 10 made) and a scarce item that Colt no longer sells.  It is one of a very few Colt lowers which can be made into a pistol.  If you are a serious buyer, you should understand the NFA and the fact that the ATF is looking to seriously restrict which AR pistols with a brace will actually qualify as pistols.  That said, this is a very hard to find lower.  Is it any better or different from the lower receivers currently made by Colt?  No.  This is the same quality, just different "roll marks" and the fact that it can be built into a pistol.  Otherwise, it is no better or nor worse than current Colt lower receivers.

 

Charlie's has maintained and inventory for customers who want this type of lower, and we buy in the open market from other dealers.  Prices are very high.  We know that.  You should only buy this if you intend to build a pistol, and you understand the restrictions of AR pistols.  Certainly, you can use this for a full rifle build.  It is period correct.

 

Then, Charlie's Custom Clones had the lower custom engraved with Crane Mk18 Mod0 logo.  It may seem easy, like everything we do, but our team actually spent hours researching the correct logo and not just any markings, so you will have the real deal Mk18 Mod0 logo, and can build a rifle, and SBR (with proper registration and engraving) or a pistol.

 

This item left the Colt factory as a spare lower receiver so it CAN be used as a pistol.  Colt has not distributed lower receivers since 2019, and all receivers not leaving the Colt factory as a lower, left the factory as a rifle.  You may hear other stories, but the truth is any stripped receiver after 2019 has been stripped by a dealer for sale as a part, and cannot become a pistol.  Lots of stories floating around, some to confuse you.  Charlie's is one of the largest sellers of 100% Colt rifles, uppers, and Colt parts.  This item left the Colt factory as a lower receiver, and you will receive the lower receiver in a factory box.  The Purple dot is your assurance you are getting 100% Colt factory virgin lower.  The other myth out there is that any receiver leaving the factory as a "CR" is a Colt Rifle.  That is just not the case.  Colt changed their serial numbers from an LE prefix to a CR prefix sometime in late 2018 to early 2019, and all receivers, be they lowers or rifles have the CR serial number.  Most left the factory as a full rifle.  A very small number, like this one, left the factory as a virgin lower.  End of story.

 

Charlie's also offers the Mk18 Crane logo complete lower receiver from FN.  If your are interested in a complete pistol, with the LMT lower, take a look at the Mk18 Mod 0 LMT Custom CQBR Pistol Kit

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.
