I live in Burlington Wi. I went to two guns shops one in Burlington and one in Milwaukee to buy a colt sp6940. both said they called like 9 warehouses. one said check back the other where i normally buy firearms gave me a price and said they call when they can get it could be 2days 2weeks or 2months. and he quoted $1450 all said and done and no down payment cause he didnt know when he could get it. is there a shortage of these sp rifles?

I've had a similar experience trying to find a Colt I like. Even when contacting the guy on here, (WA) before he was given the boot, who sold them.
The only conclusion I can come to is they only produce during certain times of the year and they keep production low to keep inventory levels low and thus, prices up.

I have not seen a new colt 1911 or ar in so many decades it's not funny. For a long time I thought they just sold to leo's.

I see them all the time at gunshows in the Houston area. Right now they are running sub $1K. Plenty of the new ones also, with the Magpul type stock on it.

Speaking of colts; do they make a 20" a2 with a 556 chamber? Non heavy barrel

All current Colt rifles are 5.56 NATO chambered.
In the past, they made match target H-Bars in .223, but apparently no longer.

Some of the online stores (CheaperThanDirt, BudsGunShop) had them a few weeks ago but looks like they're out now. I'd keep checking online for new inventories. Maybe CDNN too?
