Colt ar-15 In honor of the legendary mission on November 21, 1970 to save US prisoners of war from the SÆ¡n Tây prison in Vietnam, we bring you this limited-edition GAU-5/A/A retro carbine. On the day this weapon was used by the 56 Special Forces, Operation Ivory Coast succeeded in making a statement to North Vietnam that America doesn’t leave her POW’s behind.

With no forward assist and its unconventional flat black anodized finish, this exact replica of the weapon of Operation Ivory Coast lets you hold history in your hands. Every detail has been accounted for, from the serial numbers in the original range to the permanently attached flash hider.

Armed with the compact, portable GAU-5 variant of the CAR-15, 56 U.S. Special Forces left for the Vietnamese Army-run prison, Son Tây, on November 21, 1970 with one mission: bring American prisoners of war home.

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Son Tây Raid, Colt Firearms proudly honors “Operation Ivory Coast” by producing limited edition, exact recreations of the U.S. Air Force version CAR-15. Also known as Air Force designation GAU-5/A/A.
