    Colt is just treading water in the ocean. Never modernized, and thought that they were the shit.

    IIRC, the Clinton Administration made Colt a deal , severely curtail civilian sales , especially handgun sales , in exchange for a no-bid M16/M4 contract.

    Also many Colts have the stupid auto sear block. Pisses me off in principle.

    This isn't the first time that Colt told the buying public to go pound sand. That's one of the reasons the last Colt I bought was generation one SSA.

    The hell with Colt and their over priced junk!!

    Going back to the early 70's, nobody that knew anything about guns wanted them. They had that stupid screw in place of the takedown pin in the front of the upper receiver. As soon as there were aftermarket receivers available we all ran out to buy them. I bought a 3 diget serial # lower from an outfit in California that was an exact copy of an M-16A-1 minus the sear hole. Those were the days! Boxes of surplus parts cheap (Even Colt A-1 stuff).

    I'm so disappointed I won't be able to buy their over priced mediocre firearms anymore.

    I recently bought a 14.5 SOCOM barrel that I'm glad I got my hands on, they're supposed to be pretty great. Not too worried about any other c marked parts though, I'll likely build it out on aero receivers.

    Breaking: Colt Responds to Concerns Over Its Decision to Halt Production of Rifles for Consumer Market


    WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (September 19th, 2019) – There have been numerous articles recently published about Colt’s participation in the commercial rifle market.

    Some of these articles have incorrectly stated or implied that Colt is not committed to the consumer market. We want to assure you that Colt is committed to the Second Amendment, highly values its customers and continues to manufacture the world’s finest quality firearms for the consumer market.

    The fact of the matter is that over the last few years, the market for modern sporting rifles has experienced significant excess manufacturing capacity.

    Given this level of manufacturing capacity, we believe there is adequate supply for modern sporting rifles for the foreseeable future.

    On the other hand, our warfighters and law enforcement personnel continue to demand Colt rifles and we are fortunate enough to have been awarded significant military and law enforcement contracts.

    Currently, these high-volume contracts are absorbing all of Colt’s manufacturing capacity for rifles. Colt’s commitment to the consumer markets, however, is unwavering.

    We continue to expand our network of dealers across the country and to supply them with expanding lines of the finest quality 1911s and revolvers.

    At the end of the day, we believe it is good sense to follow consumer demand and to adjust as market dynamics change. Colt has been a stout supporter of the Second Amendment for over 180 years, remains so, and will continue to provide its customers with the finest quality firearms in the world.

    Very respectfully,

    Dennis Veilleux, President and Chief Executive Officer

    I really hate the term "war fighter", any reason they just can't say "military" or "soldier"?

    In order to complete today in the military contract arena you have to be high speed and low drag. I hear every rifle purchased comes with a free operator beard grooming kit and a pair of 5.11 pants.
