Just got off the phone with Colt and they said possible AR-15 marked rifles to be produced for civilians! However all new rifles will come without a lug because "all tooling is currently not set up for lugs and some states ban them." Oh well at least possibility of a stripped lower marked "AR-15"! Official statement to be released Monday!

Err, I thought that the lugs were ground off. Aren't they on all Colt LEO & Military guns?

Standard pins or Colt pins?

Sooo lemme get this straight. Colt no longer is tooled up to produce a rifle with a bayonette lug? More likely they don't want to produce one with a lug. They weinied out before the ban even took effect. Screw em.

The LEO/Mil rifles do have lugs. But isn't Colt two seperate companies? I'd imagine it'd be possible that Colt Defense is set up for that tooling but Colt Manufacturing is not?

I don't know, I'm just a guitar player.

I'm pretty sure those .mil Colt M4s and M16A4s have lugs.

I talked to a live person. They basically said no lugs. I asked why. They said some states have bans on lugs. I said "So" my state dosn't. That is when he said possibility of a couple of models marked AR-15 but should check back monday for official statement.

A NIB Colt LE6920 that I groped this week- was made by Colt Defense. It has the B-lug.

I also read on their site that in November ('02 I believe) they divided the company into two parts- Colt Defence and Colt Mfg.

If so, and if the post'er is correct, I wonder which one is offering the 'new Colt' to civies?

I have an issue with the title in this thread.

Is this really breaking.

I call trap.

Unfortunantly colts own non ban guns won't be sold in their own state
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 11:31:40 AM EST
Man...I want a lower marked "AR-15" no bad...
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 11:36:21 AM EST
wasn't somebody on here posting a few weeks ago bragging about how their ar-15 marked "ar-15" was worth sooo much money because it was marked "ar-15"?

oh well. maybe you can convince people that its a "pre-ar-15" ar-15.

What is your problem? Seems like you are the asshole, all you have done is attack me since I came to the site.

Who cares?

Hmmm, COLT making half ass AR15's again? How can someone get excited about a company, who sold out years ago to appease the anti's, is once again producing rifles that appease them????


Pffft.



PS. I own a COLT
Link Posted: 9/10/2004 11:45:19 AM EST
to be fair it probably won't lose it's collector's status because of the serial number...

I could care less what it says. BUT, if it doesn't have colts pins I might buy a lower.
