    Default Colt back to selling AR 15s to the Public

    Looks like Colt wants to take advantage of the buying panic. They are selling their AR 15s again to the common man.

    https://www.guns.com/news/2020/06/29...onsumers-again

    Just nine months after the historic AR-15 maker signaled a curb in selling the rifle through consumer channels, Colt says they are now back on the market.

    Last September, the Connecticut-based firearms maker began a hiatus in their sales of rifles to the public while continuing to produce such long arms to fulfill outstanding military and law enforcement contracts– a move they said at the time was only temporary. A market decision and not politics, despite what anti-gun advocates and avowed “we’re coming for your guns” Democratic Presidental candidates heralded as a win in their quest for gun control.

    At this year’s SHOT Show in January, Colt told Guns.com that AR-15 production for the consumer market was going to resume once the company’s current rifle production line gets some breathing room on their full plate of military contracts. It seems that time has come.
    Now, as first reported by American Rifleman last week, new Colt AR-15s are shipping to dealers nationwide with Mark O’Keefe writing that over 2,000 Colt LE6920s recently left the factory, bound for eager consumers.

    With record interest in gun purchases of AR-15 style rifles, especially from first-time buyers, you can bet those numbers are going to increase.

    If this gets guns into the hands of people that didn't have them before, great.

    Me? I have one Colt, I won't be buying another. They told me that they don't need my money.

    There's only 2000 being shipped so the chances of getting your hands on one are pretty slim. I already own a Colt and I am a satisfied customer. I'd like one of those GI A4's Windham Weaponry was making but they are asking prices that would make even Colt and FN blush if you could buy one.

    Maybe Colt was just horsing around when it said that.

    The article didn't say they were only making 2000, it merely said they already shipped 2000.
