Anyone know of anyone selling new Colt lowers?

dr, Colt never did sell lowers, only complete rifles. Unless that practice has changed, you will not be able to buy one separately unless you run across someone who is willing to break up a new upper/lower combination.

You can buy Colt lowers here: [url=http://www.floridagunworks.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=FG&Category_Code=ARA+R]Forida Gun Works[/url] Just scroll down to the middle of the page. Here's another one: [url=http://www.rguns.net/rifles2.html]R Guns[/url] I've never done business with either company so I can't comment on them good or bad either way. My local gunshop is a Colt stocking dealer so I normally just buy my Colt parts from him.

Colt never sold [b]preban[/b] lowers just complete [b]preban[/b] rifles. Colt has been selling postban lowers for quite a while.

Thanks everyone. My FFL is a Colt dealer but he has a pretty hard time getting anything in. Maybe I'll run it by him. Are all of the new rec's Colt makes now "milspec" with regards to pushpins??

My last two post-ban Colt Match Targets were equipped with standard pushpins. I do think, however, that they are still using non-standard trigger pins. Not a big deal, IMO. HTH, vanfunk

I've seen plenty in Shotgun News. KY Imports and R Guns are two I remember off hand.
