Had this receiver been complete, it would have been only for law enforcement or export as the receiver lacks "PROPERTY OF U.S. GOVT" marking. I know what an M4 is and what a M16A2 is, but what type of weapon does the marking indicate?

Although it doesn't answer the weapons trivia question, this link contains the only information I've been able to locate regarding the Colt M4/M16A2E weapon.

3. What does the M3 sub-machine gun and the M1 carbine have in common?

The answer to the first trivia question is, the M1 carbine butt plate screw is one of the two butt plate screws used on early M14 rifles. This butt plate screw was originally designed as the "short" butt plate screw for the M1 rifle. So, this "short" butt plate screw was used on M1 rifle butt plates, M1 carbine butt plates, and early M14 rifle butt plates.

The M1 carbine sling was standard issue for use with the M3A1 sub-machine gun.

What the "Nylon 66"? I have one of those, and I didn't even know that.
