Do you have facts you can document to prove what you posted? If so, please share.
Out of curiosity, have you even actually shot one of the new Colts? They may not be classics, but this old guy (who's owned plenty of revolvers in his day) considers them entirely worthy, hardly "mediocre."
The Colt All American--not their finest hour.
Yep and they can't hold a candle to Colt's previous double action revolvers. But I guess that is subjective. The point is, if you want one, you better get it now, because I think Colt will drop them. They can't be selling well in today's market. Most younger shooters don't really even think about Colt. After us old guys are gone, there will be no reason for Colt to exist.
Colt is a LLC not like Ruger and S&W, which are publicly traded companies. Colt is in business to provide the business partners a handsome income. They run the company like a hedge fund, taking huge consulting and management fees. Investors have lost millions yet people still want to invest in the company. Who knows why. I guess some people have so much money they can afford to lose it. The tax laws are weird enough that a loss will decrease ones tax burden substantially. So the loss is offset by the reduced tax burden.
And what great timing as ARs are increasing in both demand and price.
I wonder what that is all about? Kind of reminds me of the Colt Target Sporter days of old.
Where did you see those?
Ammo Brothers near Los Angeles. They are a local chain of stores.
They don't allow photo's, so I got this one off their IG account. They were pretty much all sold out, but the salesman said they have another batch on the way. It will too busy to check them out, so I did not get to see actual markings on the rifles.
I thought Colt ARs were banned in Cali by name?
If you look at BCM vs Colt rifles with similar features (rail, BUIS and sometimes an upgraded trigger) the Colts are a bit more now. Before they switched to more focusing on military contracts they were about the same price.
You can’t really compare a bare bones Colt 6920 to a tricked out BCM and get lolz. Have to be roughly the same.
It was exactly the opposite. Colt discontinued those models due to lack of sales. If the "American sporting public" really wanted those guns, they would have bought them. Colt was too expensive. Eventually plastic semi autos killed the revolver in LE sales, and LE sales have a huge impact on civilian sales.
Oh, and I think the M9's were $200+ if memory serves me right (it has been a while).
I’d take one for that
