Now that Colt has reintroduced the Anaconda and Python revolvers, along with a reproduction of a mil-spec type .45 in the M1911A1, is it even a remote possibility that Colt might soon expand their AR rifle line to include more variety? That they might finally be coming to the realization that a mistake was made in taking consumers for granted and that Clinton and his anti-gun zealots no longer occupy the White House? I can't really determine if Colt's revival of these old standards is a hopeful sign or an indication that they are grasping at straws in an attempt to hold off fiscal disaster. I personally hope that it is the former. I would recommend, if they are serious about recapturing market share, that they take a look at the products offered by Bushmaster and Armalite, and then let that be their guide. I would also suggest a return to labeling Colt rifles with the "AR-15" moniker, removal of the receiver block and chrome lining of rifle bores on select models. If Colt got a wild hair and came out with an AR rifle in .308 to compete with Armalite and Stoner, would it sell? I'd be willing to bet that it would. This might all just be wishful thinking on my part, but it sure would be nice if most of the above ramblings came to pass.
Take care, Mike
