After 94 and the AWB they had to have a manufactured date and say "LE and MIL only" on them.

Colt could have got hung up by walmart and other big box stores that canceled orders. Regardless Colt won't have any excess inventory for very long.

I don't think they are pre-94. The other two that aren't marked, when and where did you buy them? They look in good shape so I think they may have been made after it was lifted in 04.
