Cool. Just curious, what’s the deal with it being stamped Mexico?

They were for the Mexican government contract. You can still find the rifles on occasion, but according to Colt, under 200 virgin lowers were ever sold to the public. There was quite a bit of talk about these when they were first released, Google search will inform you better than I can. Now they have a cult following and are not easy to find under $1500 as a virgin stripped lower.

Found this on the web....
This limited batch of carbines was originally produced by Colt for the Secretaria de la Defensa Nacional of Mexico, Directorate of Commercial Arms and Munitions (DCAM), the Mexican governmental department responsible for equipping Mexico's state and municipal law enforcement agencies. In compliance with Mexican law, these rifles all feature the official “S.D.N. MEXICO D.F.” roll mark on the right side of the magazine well (see photos for roll mark). These new-in-box models will make as excellent shooters, and their rarity adds to collector value.

The biggest rarity about this lower is Colt doesn't sell lowers, that's well known. So to find a virgin Colt lower (able to be built into a pistol, not an upper that was a rifle and was unassembled and resold) is very, very, very rare.
