    I never understood this attitude in the Black Rifle community. I agree Colt rifles are very proven but I can not stand the attitude of Colt guys any more. For the record I own 2 Colts and some built rifles.

    My AR is such and Mut and Jeff of parts that I can not comment on anyone elses choices and it goes bang every time I pull the trigger. Each to his own as far as I am concerned.

    It used to be an easier attitude to defend. There are more and more quality milspec and better than spec options now.

    I check out a few local pawn shops every so often to see if there is anything interesting. Some folks that know guns and some that don't know will pay ridiculous prices for a colt ar15.

    Yep and you pay dearly for that -supposed extra milspec! With the prices coming down on Colts they are away better buy then ever. Why would someone pay $400-500 more for something that might not be any better! Just because it has the cool name?:faint:

    I understand from a collectors standpoint. Especially with the LE plant closing it's doors. The LE guns will be worth a pretty penny in a few years even in fired condition kind of like the Pythons. I just still don't understand why people swear by them from a "gold standard" mindset. Plenty of manufacturers are on par with them now days. Lets see, 1200 for an LE Colt or 950 for BCM or Spikes Tactical? I'd be comfortable with either in all honesty. I am however buying a 6920 tomorrow. Because I can.

    The LE plant ? :rofl:



    The LE roll mark was discontinued, that is all. Colt didn't shut down a "plant".

    I purchased an LE6940 about a year or so ago. I could have spent "$400-$500" less and perhaps gotten a solid gun. But, the additional few hundred bucks spread out over the life of the gun comes to pennies. I tend to pay up for quality.

    Colts are good, always have been. Fact is MANY guys pay the extra money for them just for the Colt name.

    There are many options these days that are just as good for less money, anyone who knows anything about ARs knows this.

    Silly as it may sound... It's just hard for some peope to take you seriously when your lower has a snake or a pirate or a spider or whatever on it. It looks like a cobbled together clunker out of the bargain bin at Harbor Freight.

    Believe it or not, there are a lot of organizations and shooters out there who don't sit around on the internet waiting for Rob_S to update his spreadsheet. :rofl:

    Wait so you mean that the Sporter models are built to the same specs as the LE ones? That's like saying Military Hummers are built to the same specs as my H2 is. It is a completely separate facility. Maybe not shutting down but for the civilian market it is. So yes, the LE "plant" is no more for civilians.

    OMG Colt sucks, made by DPMS and trigger springs are made from Barbie doll hair pins recycled. Colt is made by small Vietnamese children in a small hut in the jungle and they get paid $2.00 a day and beat 4X a day. Now remember you read this on the internet so it's all true and I know what the hell I'm talking about because I post on a gun forum and my avatar is cool!

    People can say what they will, but a Colt will always be worth more than something else.

    Does that mean they'd chuck lead downrange better than other makes? Nope.

    But when it's all said and done, Colt products are more desirable.

    How many other arms manufacturers have made just as good or better guns than Colts throughout the decades (dare I say centuries?)? How many of them still around? And whether or not their marques are desirable?

    There's a reason why Colt and Smith&Wesson are household names throughout the world, and it ain't all hypes.
