What "PC BS" are you referring to?
The "PC BS" I'm refering to is that Colt (despite the AWB Ending) will only sell rifles in "post Ban" configuration to non LEO buyers. Of course the 6920 which has all the "evil" features are being sold to non LEO buyers buy dealers, despite being told not to by Colt. It's just amazing to me that Colt will not step up and produce the AR15 in "No Ban" configuration for the general public. Seems to me like they would sell very well? Does Colt not care that Bushmaster outsells them? Are they not in business to make $$$
Thanks for chomping down hard-I'll help remove that hook for you now
It's no secret that I'm an ex Colt employee, and my insight may help you to change your mind about Colt's "PC BS".
Months prior to the AWB sunset Colt quietly ramped up production of their 16" semiauto LEO line. The production of 6920s, 6721s, 6520s, and 6450s was increased dramatically in anticipation of post sunset demand. Colt did not anticipate hordes of cops lining up to buy their LEO carbines, but newly 'liberated' civilians. The whole "Colt won't sell LEO weapons to civilians" line is complete, utter nonsense
. There are plenty
of sources to buy factory fresh Colt LEO weapons.
Colt has never
stated that they won't sell LEO weapons to civilians. Colt's letter to dealers that everyone gets so lathered up about simply realigned LEO weapon sales through LEO distributors-it DID NOT
prohibit non-LEOs from buying them-and I challenge anyone to prove otherwise. It makes perfect sense for Colt to do this, and hundreds of other industries do the exact same thing.
As far as post ban weapons go, how exactly would anyone
know what post sunset weapons Colt is selling for the commercial market? They haven't built any yet!
This may come as a shock to some, but Colt hasn't built a commercial Match Target rifle since the AWB sunset. Their entire capacity is being used for DoD contracts, with a small part left over for LEO and international sales.
