Who has actually SEEN a letter from Colt stating that Colt doesn't intend to let these rifles be sold to civilians? Failing that, who has actually, personally talked to a Colt rep? Does anyone have any notion as to Colt's plans, i.e. do they still intend to produce a Match Target M4 with pinned stock and no bayo lug??? My DU conspiracy hairs are starting to prickle-I think this might be a Vast Gun Dealer Conspiracy!

Colt and their dealers can see how much of the muzzle can fit up their rectums as far as I'm concerned.

Be glad people are buying from other companies that actually give a shit about their customers (like Bushmaster, Armalite, and CavArms).

Yeah, generally I wouldn't care, but I've got a buddy I'm shopping for that just HAS to have a Colt. Of course, he finally decides this about three days ago even tho we've been discussing what kind of rifle he wants since August.

I talked to a Colt rep- I didn't ask about them changing the non-LE line, but he was very clear that they want their military and LE customers to get guns first. They are not very happy that the distributors are jacking the prices way up and selling them to anyone. He didn't say as much, but I suspect that many distributors are gonna get a half-hitch jerked in their ass and have to provide proof of an LE or milltary enduser before Colt will sell them any more rifles.

I stick with BM and they are now selling their old style XMs with all the evil items since the 94 died.
Pray that Flipper does not get in or folks like myself who are small home based FFLs will for sure lose their Type-01s and will be forced out of business.
Go "W"!

There are more groupies at Camp Perry than there are Colt ARs.

And that is all I have to say about THAT!

Roll your own...much, much cheaper anyways...and you can build it the way you want exactly.

OH, B.S.!!! You're going to tell me that Colt doesn't appreciate a 20 fold increase in sales? We are supposed to believe that they think the sudden increase in sales is all for LE purchase? They know exactly what's going on as they say "No", but ship these rifles out case after case, and truck after truck.

Some of you righteous guys ought to stop to think how the real world works. Lighten up, will ya!So what that you have to take the trouble to get one of these rifles through the back door? To me it's only more of something special to really appreciate! Cry to me when Colt refuses to service your LE rifle. They treat me fine and don't care who I am. They are just maintaing a politically correct posture to cover their asses in a very hostile anti gun environment. They've got major government cotracts and war weapons images to worry about. This is similar to those few retail malls or chains that post a small "No Guns" sign in a corner window where you can't even hardly see it. They don't really consider you a threat and want you to stay out, as much as they are just safeguarding themselves from a lawsuit in the event of a mishap like an innocent bystander getting shot.

I don't know why everyone is saying, "Colt is over priced". I bought a new, in the box, L.E. Colt AR6450, 9mm carbine for $894.00. I was in the market for a 9mm carbine.

I know Bushmaster doesn't sell 9mm's but their rifles/carbines are close to or over $1,000.00.

Where is the deal?

Don't get me wrong, I have a Bushmaster carbine and am very happy with it.

Colt's "covering their asses" still got the AR-15 rifle banned in 1994. It's not going to do them a lick of good now. There is no pleasing the anti-gun crowd. Fuck them for even trying. They've pissed on civi sales multiple time in the last decade plus.

Why people worship at the altar of Colt I will never know. I own one. It's an ok rifle, but it's no better than any of the other copies of the original Armalite design out there. I refuse to support any business that openly and honestly says they don't give a shit about me. Some of the same people who defend Colt here are the first to remind everyone how much S&W and Glock don't deserve our business.

Around here they run close to or over $1,000.00. Can you find them for at or around $894.00?

Under $800, as I recall, at the last gun show here. Definitely cheaper than Colt, though not a ton - prolly less than $100 spread.

Guess I'll have to drive to Pa. to buy a cheeper Bushmaster. Gun shows around here aren't as friendly.

Well then pull your head out of Colt’s butt… that is a joke son a joke.

Shop around I can get Bushmaster rifles for a little over $800 here as well.

Colt is just blowing smoke, I got two 6920's yesterday and it only took two weeks. And they were cheaper than BM. I wish they would make AR180's in steel again they are much nicer to shoot in my opinion.

Maybe… But the smoke Colt is blowing is going up MY ass.

So I will offer Colt the resulting bowel movement.

Deals have be sought for, not tripped over or bitten in the ass with

Geez, less money, probably better quality, and MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH better customer service.

Hell, who'd want to buy a Bushmaster?!

Nice post-ban carbine. I already have a Bushmaster just like that. I have $625.00 in it.

No thanks. I got the evil 9mm with all the parts.
