Diemaco/Canada Colt LSW -Light Support Weapon Upper for M16 Lowers. $3400.00 plus $20.00 shipping.  My Email: c_monster001@yahoo.com 

Thanks, Jeff

P.S. - It does not come with the heavy buffer nor green spring, it uses the same heavy buffer and green spring as on the colt lmg.  A few of them can be found on gunbroker and utilized to slow down the rate of fire to 600-800 rpm.  I advise getting both the buffer and the spring!  This is an very controllable upper in full auto and a tack driver too!  Very Accurate even with the just the open sights!  Put an Elcan on the flattop and it is extremely accurate!

More INFO follows:

Very Heavy Barreled upper, A2 sights, Detachable Carry Handle/Flattop upper receiver, Bipod, A2 Flashider, For Full Auto Fires from the Closed Bolt as with the Danish and Dutch

Contract C7A2's/3's. aka LSW's.  Meant for sustained fire and select fire lowers as it fires from the Closed Bolt.  This is a different upper from the Colt LMG, but a follow on model, designed to use an Elcan scope on the Flattop.

Note: SAR article discusses the LSW in the second to last paragraph. This is not an open bolt MG Upper! It is a closed bolt upper for select fire on M16 Lowers.

From Wikipedia here:

Diemaco LSW

Danish LSW M/04 with optical sight

Colt and Diemaco also paired up to develop a squad automatic weapon variant of the series. The Diemaco Light Support Weapon (LSW) features a heavy barrel suitable for sustained fire. The LSW can only fire automatically. The LSW has a boxy square handguard with a carrying handle and a vertical foregrip that can be used as a monopod. The LSW was made with no bayonet lug until recently[when?] because of the original bipod. A new bipod attaches to the same barrel yoke as the carrying handle and front grip, so current LSWs are made with a bayonet lug. Unlike many M16 variants, it fires from an open bolt, allowing the removal of the forward assist. The LSW is used by the Royal Danish Army and the Netherlands Marine Corps (LOAW / LOAWNLD) fires from a closed bolt and also has a semi-automatic firing mode. The Diemaco LSW was originally a license produced variant of the Colt 750, but both Colt and Diemaco have upgraded their respective weapons to include features like a detachable carry handle and other features separately.
