    Looks like Colt wants to compete with the Sport...


    1 in 8 twist
    FF rail
    Match trigger

    MSRP of $899 (street price should be under $800...)

  2. Amazing what happens when you lose a big old government contract, isn't it?

    I just googled it. Remington is providing M4s as well it would appear.

    Remmington hasn't provided any M4's. The contract that Remmington won has been disputed. It will be re-bid. IF Remmington does win the re-bid they still have to pay Colt royalties for Colt's Intellectual property known as the TDP for M4's.

    I just don't see Remington doing as good as Colt has done. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if Remington produced M4's of equal quality to the rest of the ARs Freedom Group produces.

    I think Colt is making great business moves in the civilian market. Something I've wanted to see for a long time. Maybe soon we'll be able to purchase a 692?, a midlength version of their 6920 w/ pinned low profile gas block.
     
  12. we have several brand spankin new M4's here...all Colt.

    Did this loss of Govt contract just happen?

    As long as Colt stays always from the no frills models they will
    do very well.

    No one has to pay Colt anything for M4's, all rights to the M4 are owned by the US Army and they can award the contract/contracts to as many manufactures as they wish.

    Take a look here

    Believe what you will. Many incorrect writeups on the internet about this subject. Colt lost sole source status but that 2009 writeup is incorrect as to the TDP.

    It's pretty common knowledge that Colt owns the TDP. Any other manufacture that wins the bid for M4's will have to pay Colt thier due royalties.

    Those LE6900's may be a custom order. Colt will do custom orders for a thousand or more. That's how the Colt 6720 came about.

    Being objective about it, Colt knows that Military demand for their product is going to drop of rapidly, in the near future. So, they're gonna start focusing on civilian sales until the next conflict kicks off.
