What he said. Colt owns the rights to the use of "Ar15" so every company uses their own version. They all have xx15. Bushmaster chose XM, I think Armalite just uses an M and so on.

"Did own", I think they lost the sole right to use it in court along with the M4

That would be an affirmative.... "Did Own" is an accurate description.......

All are right here...... XM15 is an AR15.... it is just a Bushmaster designation......

Oh ok, I thought the court decision only dealt with the M4 designation. But I read the small paragraph at the bottom where it included M16, Ar15, Match Target and so on.

Yes, no reason to use the term M4gery any more. Wonder if we'll see the demise of all these other names now?
