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!

From www.biggerhammer.net/ar15/ar15serial.html :

1978 SP83400 X CC001616 and Below X CH019500 and Below X GC018500 and Below X LH011326 and Below X MH086020 and Below X NL004800 and Below X SL027246 and Below X
