I've a Colt Sporter Lightweight Serial Number 009640. Can anyone advise as to how I determine if this is a pre-ban weapon?

BD AR15A3 Tactical Carbine
CC Colt Carbine
CH Competition HBAR
GC Government Carbine

You forgot SL series Pre Ban Sporters. Mine is a SL 004741 never shot and I've had it since new. I'm thinking about selling it that's why I've been doing all the research. Thank you for a great website!
