Which brand of rifle would be more "collectable" since the ban has sunset, the LE BM or Colt? I know the BM is harder to find but the Colt has the name recognition. What do you guys think?

Oops, sorry - read the question wrong.

There are two reasons I think Colt would be:

1. There are LE models marked AR-15 which has a certain appeal for some people.
2. If Colt truly does try to restrict civilian sales of LE guns, then the supply may dry up to a certain extent.

On the other hand, there may be less LE Bushmasters out there so that may come into play as well.

anything marked colt will appreciate in value in a few years.

being a collector !!

Colt may hold a slight advantage, but the Bushmasters are more "rare", i have been looking for a LEO Bushy for my collection, i have one of Bushys post-pre-bans on order with a low S/N which is desireable in collections.
