    giving sand terrorists ar platform weapons is almost like a poison pill. they're just going to malfunction when they get dusty.
    i wonder if they'll be chambered in russian cals so they're compatible with all their existing stockpile.

    My understanding is Colt has a large military contract and needs to focus on it but i do not recall them doing this before when filling a military contract. Could be a number of things impacting the decision. There are so many companies building AR's that Colt does not impact the civilian market that much I would think. I would not beat them up over there decision as we have no idea what their problems are.

    Colt getting a large military contract and an "assault weapons ban is being considered in congress are two events that make the timing of this announcement very suspicious.
    Secondly the way it is being reported in the media, the gun grabbers are claiming victory over this. I suspect Colt already got letters from various gun grabbing groups thanking them for their decision.

    If this was just an issue of temporarily shifting production to military contracts, I don't see any reason why they'd announce that publicly. Sounds like virtue signaling to me.
