A more effective call would be to say "I wanted to buy one of your guns, but for some reason you only sell them to law enforcement. So I bought one from your competitors instead. I will urge all my gun-owning friends to do the same."

I wouldn't buy a Colt if they were making no-bans available to the public freely. I'm certainly not going to waste my time begging them to consider selling their product to me.

I can hardly believe I took the time to post in this thread.

Colt sucks.

Where the hell are they getting off with a $100 M4 stock and $20 30s?!

I called colt earlier today I told them they are arming the wrong people, J/k. I asked when they are going to release a no ban model and they said its been out for some years now, they were talking about the match target, So I said I wasn't satisfied and if they did not start producing what the law abiding citizens want they will lose there business like they lost mine.

Thats all talk though cause i'm getting me a 6920

Didn't they take off bayonet lugs before the ban to placate the left?
So what would ever make them think that ceding to the wishes of liberals would keep them safer next time?

Sheesh! Idiots!

That is what real parts cost. Factory Colt mags at DEALER PRICE are $21.00.

Now you can buy aftermarket stocks and surplus mags for half that but this is what NEW stuff from a quality manufacturer costs.





Colt mags are made by either Okay or General Stampings, they do not make their own. They also happen to make the same ones sold by DPMS. DPMS dealer cost on 30s is $6.99. I guess I just don't get it.

As for the stocks, I'm not at liberty to discuss that.

Either way, you're paying for a name in this case.

Just do what i did, ran down to the local gunshop to get a Military Configuration XM-15A2 Bushy for $850 Flashider, Bayo lug all of it and it even had "For Law Enforcement/Government Use only" as a bonus!

Oh and just to piss the liberals off even more i Also bought the Bayonet and a Blank Adapter, just for the benefit of any Liberals I had in the audience! Man you should have seen the faces of some of the people as i walked down a public street with it to my vehicle!

I could have bought it under the ban since i'm a elected peace officer but i promised my shooting compatriots i would not buy anything they couldn't under the ban and i kept my word!

No, you're paying because they don't want you to buy from them. They really don't want to be a retail dealer, but if you insist on buying from them you'll pay.

Shit. What's that you say? Rock River wants $90 for their stocks?
Link Posted: 9/16/2004 5:41:21 PM EST
use to own one in 89, have owned 4 Bushy's since.can't see any way the colt shoots any better than the Bushy. Bushy customer service is A1.

Wow, if you call and wait on the line some machine-shop-operator-sounding-guy answers the phone.

DAMN.........

Guess that case of new Colt 30's I just got for $13ea was a steal.

But the next batch will surely be non Colt GIs.

Trade it straight up for a Bushy in comparable configuration.

A3 flattop with M4 barrel M4 collapsible stock.

I said I was embarassed, not stupid.

They must be getting a LOT of calls because

1. I had to wait on hold awhile
and
2. I got a WELL-rehearsed and/or scripted song-and-dance about how "we're at capacity" "war in IRAQ" "police contracts" etc.

'

They are sending LE models to Iraq?

I guess they must no be making civilian rifles at all then huh?




YEAH, get this, I said (leading into " why cant you just put bay lugged FS on the civvie models" ) "Well are you producing any civilian rifles at all now?" and the salesdrone said "Well we are finishing a batch right now and then I don't think we will be making any for awhile
Link Posted: 9/17/2004 8:03:25 PM EST
Colt is trying to manupulate the market into taking their old neutered rifles...

They figure that if they restrict sales to 'Match Targets', folks who MUST have a Colt will buy out the old MTs made up untill the death of the ban...

I predict Colt will not offer no-bans until they are fresh out of 'Match Target' guns...

It would not make sense to keep making a line for the MTs, if you could have one line for all semiautos....
