Colt manufacturing will no longer make AR-15s for the civilian market.
Guns.com reported that Colt senior VP Paul Spitale made a statement, saying the company is shifting away from ARs and toward the class 1911, Colt revolvers, and other guns Americans want for concealed carry.
I bet Colt management sees what I do: a class action opiod-type lawsuit in the near future. They are limiting future liabilities. I am suprised we don't see auto makers getting sued for drunk driving accidents, it's using the same logic.
I am not going to boycott them. It is their choice. I think their equipment is overpriced as there are a lot of custom shops that can build a superior rifle for the same cost with better parts.
I have built most of my own rifles. My first was a Bushmaster Carbine with 14.5" barrel & welded brake. It would eat any ammo you fed it, but wasn't the most accurate. It also belched a lot.
If you own a Colt, the value is definitely going up. The name recognition and perceived quality is still quite high, and if you want one you will have to pay more.
Do NOT chase tail. Turn yours around and live FREE!
Old Buck is right--Colt's stuff is ALWAYS overpriced. I wonder if the Colt CEO "genius boy" understands that Colt's market share of the AR-15 market will simply be picked up by S&W, Ruger and lots of smaller manufactures. Assuming that Americans are as pussy-whipped as the beta-simps of New Zealand and Australia is a catastrophic mistake.
Check and litigation is the latest form of discussion. Colt as a company will try and run from it, however the lawsuits will catch them in the end.
