Can you post close-up pics of the markings on the mag well and on the moderator? Does the moderator have a "Colt" serial number or an ATF-issued/stamped serial number? (Like "ATF xxxx")

Yes it is an ATF number as suggested.    Form 4 has firearm as CAR-15 by Colt, moderator model XM177 also by Colt.

Why would the 11-inch barrel need a tax stamp if it's on a machine gun that by definition has no barrel length restrictions?

The XM177 was deemed a silencer per the ATF because the ATF stated it had baffles inside that lower the dB eating of the firearm, even if Colt's original intention was only to increase back pressure for reliability reasons.
