Yeah, the scoop I heard is that the market is saturated and they're working hard to keep up with military/LEO contracts. HK was experiencing similar issues in 2018. They were cutting back commercial production in favor of keeping up with their contracts.

Yea and in 2024 when the contract ends they will come bug us to buy a out dated product no one wants. Colt does not make stuff u want they make stuff they want. They have been out of touch with the gun market for 10yrs. They have no real R&D all the good people have left the company. They still think people just want a 1911 when the market has been striker guns hell look at the army contract to see what sells colt.

Who's buying these rifles? Thought the military moved to FN for their contract.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Too little, too late. Its not the company Sam Colt built. If it were it would have moved out of Connecticut long ago. No more Colt products for me until I see a real commitment to the 2A which is to We the People not the USGovt.

There is a lot of other companies making the AR so I see no reason to get upset for colt..
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
The left has been trying to spin this as a victory & the pro gun community (at least half) are obliging them with conspiracy theories. It wasnt but 2 years ago when Colt was filing for bankruptcy. They opted out of making revolvers in favor of military/police contracts a long time ago. Are they going to bring back revolvers like they did the Cobra? Or will they fade away when the military/police contracts dry up in favor of cheaper or better options? Im sure some holding company will buy them out eventually, like it has been done in the past. Colt is an American icon that I hope can fair the weather & make a strong domestic comeback.

The gun community will never make progress when they fight amongst themselves, anyone with the following you and many other big gun pages have should research and fact check before trying to rally the troops. You all fell right into what the left wanted.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
The $42 million contract that is for 5 years only equals about 40-50 rifles a day of working 365 days a year at $600 bucks a piece. Surely Colt has the production capacity to produce at least that many for civilian sales. The decision to end civilian sales is political in nature pure and simple.

TIMING Colt, timing. Had you made this broader announcement before or well after the BETO thing, it would have seemed more genuine as to a 2nd Amendment commitment IMHO.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Still overpriced and screw them for not using common trigger holes... Bushmaster gets a thumbs down for coming up with the commercial spec buffer as well....
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Sootch00 A close friend of mine knows a lot of people in the manufacturing business he told me the whole story before it went public.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Na its still an excuse, colt lost the majority of the military contract to FN
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
I trust my life to a Colt LE 6970, I am glad to read Colt clarified this issue.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
I think A LOT of people just simply jumped to conclusions on this one. They were pretty clear, I thought, in their original announcement that this was not political or any other reason than for financial reasons. I think a lot of people are also still quick to call BS on that reasoning. Theyre recovering from bankruptcy lol. You cant believe its an effort to stay afloat? You really think a recovering firearm company is going to stop making ARs for the public for political reasons? And theyve been doing gov/Leo contracts forever. Thats nothing new and has always been their bread and butter. But, Whatever

I love when these companies say / do things that alienate their customer base then start with the back peddling to save face. Colt could have released all of this information right from the start yet choose not to. Really makes a person stop and think, can you truly trust Colt as a company. Because again, if this is the real reason then why not just say that right off instead of waiting till they're called out over it?
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
I got the impression perfectly fine from the initial announcement that sporting rifles were oversaturated in the market.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Either way, whoever it was at Colt who thought it was a good idea to publicly announce the fact that theyre stopping sales to civilians just days after a mass shooting, is a complete moron if they thought this wouldnt backfire on them and alienate their entire pro 2A customer base. Ive already seen liberals use this as a win against gun owners and just adds fuel to their fire to put pressure on other companys to do the same. This is the absolute dumbest PR disaster from a firearms manufacturer Ive ever seen. Should never have announced it and just done it quietly if it truly was just about business. Which honestly I still have my doubts about considering their track record in the past...
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Didn't matter to me either way. Anyone can assemble a better rifle than Colt can offer. Often for less money! I don't buy "names".
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Cuz nobody wants to pay 1200 bucks for a vanilla flavored rifle. Zero product innovation. I love Colt's AR rifles but its hard to justify it when they think theyre logo is worth half the cost of the gun.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Colt needs to leave that liberal Connecticut mess and move south where taxes are less and states are more welcome so they can lower their price point and sell more inventory.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Colt is full of crap, a 45 million dollar contract over 5 years is 300 rifles a week, I think they can handle that and then some. I used to live 30 mins from the factory and took a tour of it one day it was a crazy number what they can pump of of that place per day.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Business is business. Well done Colt...!
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Bullshit - i work in federal contracting. The 42 million dollar contract they were awarded is likely nothing more than a base contract that delivery orders can be placed against, with modest minimum guarantees. I'd be willing to bet ACC at Picatinny also has FN and Sig or some other manufacturers on the contract to allow for mandated competition. This was definitely at least partially a political move, with other factors such as their poor financial management skills also playing a role.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Also, if their civilian ar15s were selling, they are not, and profitable, they would expand capacity and find a way to make civilian rifles. Its not anti 2a decision. It is culmination of decades of horrible decisions and mismanagement of its whole business specifically its civilian market.
Comment on: Monday, September 30th, 2019
Already sick of this story. Dont care what they clarify. Its not like anyone was running to the store to get a Colt AR for the past 10 years. Overpriced mil-spec crap
