We started a local support group but the ammo costs and discovering were missing another rare variety got so expensive had to disband. We still meet informally. Yes, my problem is my Pony gun addiction is compounded by it covering snake guns, 1911's and more. Start chasing some varients and it gets deep in the pockets.

ARs always bored the hell out of me do to carrying one in the service. Then Uncle Sam trained me to school to work on these things and learned that ARs are about as easy to build as Legos (with the proper tools... a lot of Bubba's don't use proper tools).

Then I got into building retro ARs.... 60x series, and recently M16A2 and A4 flavors.

Along with scavenging for parts, I have some come cool interesting original Colt rifle variations, specifically from the AWB era (LEO only markings).
Colt had built some interesting rifles for the LEO sector before it was "cool."
Somewhere along the line, Colt fell behind the power curve compared to the boutique builders. Even so, if I have five NIB AR rifles from different manufacturers laying on the table including a Colt, and I had to run out the door directly into a firefight, I would grab the Colt without a second thought. They may not be the prettiest or the latest "fanboy cool," but I know exactly what I am getting.... a tool that works.

25 years ago the Colt AR-15 was the only one to own. Not so much today. Lots of good ARs out there. I still have some older Colts, but I can't say they are better than the new FNs or Smiths.

SGW/Oly has been around for about 40 years now.

They made a lot of receivers for other companies. Like PAWS, and others.

If going to talk about SGW/Oly going down memory lane as lot of guys who taught me gunsmith work also taught me how to work on old equipment and cars. For some reason guns and tractors go together. All pictures are of machines that are loud, spit fire and if blow up will kill you so kind of on topic if talking Oly's.

Oly's are how I learned to wrench on AR's. All my Pony guns worked flawlessly and tripped across a lot of Oly's with issues. Had it not been for finding SGW/Olympic/Original Palmetto might not have had a clue about truely working in AR 15's. Till got my fjrst Oly in a trade all my Pony guns worked all the time. Knew a guy who was a retired Army armorer and he would help me trouble shoot and get them running. A couple we tore down to smallest component and then squared parts, reassembled them and all ran perfect plus triggers were better as well as accuracy. Then when had access to some worn out Class 3 M16's owned by friends that would give issues he would help with. Thus when the build craze hit, had almost 20 years experience wrenching on junk and worn out rifles as a knowledge base on which to use building.

My friend has passed but left me with a lot of training that was a big help. Like friends that taught me to prospect for gold, dig for gems, facet gem stones, old sign painters and pin stripers that passed their crafts. Apprenticeship training is a whole lot better than books or Utube these days as lots of nuances as to how to hold a wrench doesn't get written down or is edited in video. Friend came back from fall trip to Midwest and told me over half the instructors at steam engine school we trained under had passed. Guy who taught governor class had five days in class and two in field. He would purposely create an issue with a governor on engines and see how long it took the class to troubleshoot.

The guy that taught us the tricks of keeping Model T Fords running has passed as well and between the two of us we have been lucky enough to get some of their specialty tools. Adjusting the coils to proper ohm rating is an art as all need to be fairly close value to run well and reduce chance of breaking arm cranking on one. Oversteer is common and fixing and when slide out a bendix there are a dozen problems that could be staring at you if don't understand them then your on a hunt for a Model T guru. Frank could rip a Caterpillar D7 down to every nut and bolt and rebuild as well as repair an old piece of Fordson tracked equipment that may only be one or two left in world. What's sad is we have no young folk hanging around our shops wanting to learn these skills.

Trying to label some of my tools so not scrapped when die due to people not knowing what they are. Whoever finds my box of steam engine governors up to 2" Wille have a pile of cash if put on fleabay.

Off topic photos, when world falls apart from an EMP these will still work.

Look like you have some lonely uppers. Once I get an upper built I can't see it not having a lower to match as cheapest part. Billet lower $33, $49 for stock with tube/spring/buffer, $10 in pins/springs, match single stage trigger $29 plus $9.99 spring kit and hour of honing and polishing plus install screw to eliminate creep and travel. $130 and it's a complete rifle with under three pound crisp trigger. That's just me, otherwise it's a fancy blunt force trauma weapon. I do understand swapping upper for a task but personally prefer to finish them out. Hoping the Colt Competition left over lowers hit surplus market like rest of parts have.

I feel your attitude on an upper and a lower needing a mate. I also truly note your experience on the virtual lack of any "young ones" interested in taking the knowledge offered. Sad as hell but it's the "dipshitski generationz" in spades that are all video game oriented or keeping their gruber check rolling oriented anymore.
Got a nephew in Missurah... that has all but laid down on his parents . Not counting his other cousins that are all there doing nothing unlike himself , mindless mindless sponges. Had the nephew for two summers...showed him woods , trees , animals , turtles ...you name it. Plus he got his fill of triggertime . Thought he would do something...nope. All those years as a kid working on cars,trucks,tractors with my father have fallen on silent ears with the exception of my son. I get a lot of flak from wife and inlaws onmy drill sgt way of addressing my son in these endeavors. Don't give a fug...you either do it and do it right or it's getting your attitude squared away quick and proper.

I too see that this new generation has no interest in learning how to fix things or use their hands to do any kind of work if it doesn’t involve a computer.

I’m in the process of changing companies. The new company is having a hard time find people who can or who are willing to do work that requires the use of there hands. The company has billions of dollars in government contracts and can’t find people who are qualify to do the work. Of those people who are willing to do the work, most can’t get past the background check in order to get a security clearance because all the stupid stuff they have done in the past.

As for the topic of this thread, I too love Colts. I have few wish I had bought a few more years ago when they were inexpensive.

I have given up on people under the age of 35 as human resources material. Get a betters day work out of a retired guy wanting to make some spare money. Right now my number two producing employee is my 74 year old Mom. She comes in at least two days a week without being asked and will even run the metal shear and table saw if don't watch her and make her quit. Last millenial I hired was end of last winter when going through chemo and radiation again, have broken back in three places, broken neck, fractured skull, 55 years of other abuse and said it was unfair for me to expect him to work as hard as I do.

Even worse is the young guys attitude when bring a Colt snake gun to work to shoot on lunch break or end of day. They don't understand why someone would even want a revolver when there are so many "nice" high capacity polymer guns don't have to worry about scratching and trying to explain why an SP1 is worth a lot more money than some of the modern railed space rifles is frustrating. Their daddy has a Glock, best gun ever made...

Ya , I have at least 2-3 upper's for every lower , Different length upper's for different tasks . Plus i sell upper's at the LGS .
Sense my retirement , I find myself piddling with different builds and test firing more than working on my hot rod . It's nothing to go through 1,000 -1,500 rds of ammo per month .

In 1968 I sent money home from VN, I think $180 or $190, for my Dad to pick up one of those Colt plastic guns for me, a fairly early SP1. In a moment of mental decrepitude, twenty years later I traded that gun off for a more 'updated' version of Colt's AR15. Still regret that one. I confess to being a gun snob when it comes to AR's, if it doesn't say Colt it is invisible to me.

I'm very Happy with this LE6940 Barrel date stamp 3/17 (2017) Never was a fan of 16'' barrels , But this was a sweet deal .

Can't wait for the snow to go away , to test this baby out .
================================================== =========================================

The patented one-piece monolithic upper receiver incorporates a continuous Mil-Spec rail from the rear of the upper receiver to the front sight. This feature affords unmatched repeatability for mounting optical systems, not found traditional handguard rail systems. Designed with accuracy in mind, its true free-floating 16.1" chrome lined barrel provides the enhanced accuracy necessary for long-range shooting.

Right now I still have my first year production Bushmaster XM15E2S, About 15 years ago I was a Colt parts dealer. Then I got together with YTM DIST.And we requested that Colt make M-4 16 inch uppers with a 1/9 twist barrel. Minimum order was 500 uppers, SAW bought about 200 uppers, YTM bought 200 and I bought 100. They sold like hot cakes down here in SE Florida, Kept one for my self and upgraded my Bushy to all Colt M-4 Parts. Now as far as Colts go,. I have the following, Colt M-16A1 Commando, Colt M-16A1 Light machinegun with the 1/12 twist H-Bar barrel and a M-60 Bi-Pod that has been upgraded to a Colt RO750 Light machinegun open bolt system, M-16A2 Factory 9mm submachinegun with a DOE upper and a Flat top upper. Then about 10 years ago I bought from Reuben Mendiola a Sendra M-16 that was converted by Bushmaster, Yet the selector stops were milled down, So I used a Bushy 14 1/2 INCH BARRELED FLAT TOP UPPER WITH A Colt Socom 4 position selector group and a Colt M-4 stock assembly with a Bushmaster M-203 underneath. So Yeah, I have a Few RARE Colt's.

For a while there were rifles issued based on how ordered the fun switch could be shipped to drop anywhere from three to six rounds each operation of trigger. Have a first cousin who is big Class 3 collector as in over 40 with at least a dozen Colts. Has a lot of H&K as well with other nice stuff. One of his rifles has a three shot burst and another has a five. Having spent a fair amount of time shooting his toys if I were in charge of procurement at the Pentagon majority of troops would have three or five shot burst maximum fun switches. The REMF's three shot only and average 11 Bravo would get max of five depending on theater deploying to.

Why I like binary triggers so much and don't hesitate to drop the money on them. Having the extra click for legal two shot burst with some practice and trigger control can run a couple of mine in the 350 to 400 rpm range accurately. Have an 18" barrel AR with binary if have the can snapped on can run ten binary shots to empty a twenty round magazine into a 2.5" group off a rest. If use double tap trigger pulls as train for regularly with pistols can easily drop four rounds very close together based on standing, sitting, prone or off a rest. Zombie in body armor many Level 3 ceramic plates will lose integrity on first couple rounds so if next pair come in close the plate fails with two trigger bumps.

One of my cousins more unique pieces is an H&K VP70 pistol with three shot burst. Have shot it enough that my opinion is double tapping with a 1911 is more effective than the three shot burst with the VP70. Of course have been practicing 1911 double taps for almost 40 years regularly. If someone has shot the VP70 a lot they can put three rounds on center mass if ready for it, in average persons hand the third round is over head of a silhouette target.

I'm not an AR guy but I do have a couple Colts because, well you just kind of have to. One is a late pre-ban and the other is a Philadelphia PD trade-in. The picture shows the 20" with a crappy aftermarket butt pad. The proper one has since been installed.

Rumor has it Knob Creek might go to a once a year show from twice a year, But from what I heard it's just a rumor right now.But once we get settled down up state again, Will most likely go next year as it will be 4 hours closer then where I'm at now as from SE Florida to the creek is about a 15 hour drive non stop.

Local friend and my first cousin go to Knob Creek at least annually and always nag me to ride along. Think they want another person in vehicle in case something goes sideways. Might have to go sooner rather than later. Both make sure not to drive through VA getting there, go west then north. Unsure if it's the firearm's laws or traffic enforcement which both seems stiff from out of state perspective. Know VA loosened their laws on handguns in vehicles but still prohibits loaded rifles and shotguns. Why on the AR pistol building rage.

Why would Virginia gun laws be a factor?

Would have to drop wife off in Charleston to stay with family and ride with friend who lives just outside of Ft Bragg. Try not to leave wife alone and take every opportunity to help her visit close family members which are all scattered from Columbia to Charleston. Going to Knob Creek would be perfect opportunity to allow her to visit with folks now usually only see at funerals and me to ride with a good friend seldom see face to face. He always drives west then north. He almost got popped with this going through D.C. and says in Virgininia and Maryland there are local municipalities that have odd laws that require getting case to Federal Court to get guns returned and costs a lot of money in the process. New York and Massachusetts are no man's land as well. Unless he is transporting government property in government vehicles with proper paperwork does not go through VA, D.C., NY or NYC, M

VIRGINIA:

Fully-automatic firearms (machine guns) must be registered with the state police. Plastic firearms and some destructive devices (such as the striker 12 shotgun) are prohibited outside law enforcement. SBS, SBR, AOWs, and suppressors are legal with NFA paperwork.

Magazines capable of holding more than 20 rounds are legal but, they make the firearm an "assault weapon", subject to law accordingly.

Proof of age (18+ for long arms, 21+ for pistols) and proof of citizenship (or permanent residence license) are required for the purchase of "assault weapons". "Assault weapons" are defined as a semi-automatic, centerfire, firearm equipped with a folding stock, or equipped at the time with a magazine capable of holding more than 20 rounds, or capable of accommodating a silencer/suppressor.

The following cities and counties have exceptions that disallow the carry of "assault weapons" (any firearm that is equipped with a magazine that will hold more than 20 rounds of ammunition or is designed by the manufacturer to accommodate a silencer or equipped with a folding stock) or shotguns equipped with a magazine that holds more than 7 rounds: the Cities of Alexandria, Chesapeake, Fairfax, Falls Church, Newport News, Norfolk, Richmond, and Virginia Beach and in the Counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Henrico, Loudoun, and Prince William.*


B4 any town or county can pass a law at any time in VA and if your not aware could watch your NFA firearms impounded and then hope to get them back after a court battle.

WASHINGTON, D.C.-Use extreme caution when traveling through Washington, DC with a firearm. The certificate requirement for possession of firearms and ammunition does not apply to nonresidents who are “participating in any lawful recreational firearm-related activity within the District, or on [their] way to or from such activity in another jurisdiction.” To qualify for this exception, a person must, upon demand of a law enforcement officer, “exhibit proof that he is on his way to or from such activity” and that the person’s possession of the firearm is lawful in the person’s place of residence. The person must also be transporting the firearm from a place where the person may lawfully possess and carry it to another place where the person may lawfully possess and carry it, the firearm must be unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition may be readily or directly accessible from the automobile’s passenger compartment, or if the vehicle does not have a separate trunk, the firearm or ammunition must be kept in a locked container.

MASSACHUSETTS—Massachusetts imposes harsh penalties on the mere possession and transport of firearms unrelated to criminal or violent conduct. Prospective travelers are urged to contact the Massachusetts Firearms Records Bureau at (617)660-4780 or the State Police at*http://www.mass.gov/msp/firearms/*for further information.

NEW JERSEY—New Jersey has highly restrictive firearms laws. The New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that anyone traveling within the state is deemed to be aware of these regulations and will be held strictly accountable for violations.*Revell v. Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, 10-236

Basically us free state people try to avoid the northeast unless fly into New Hampshire now. It's hard to know if local ordinances are going to be passed in some municipality that might have a five mile stretch of interstate where they run speed traps and like to search for dope and guns that have a nice little local ordinance fresh on their books. Maryland is another state going to crap, any state that borders D.C. are becoming over-run by liberals that work in D.C. and support liberal agenda and are now out numbering the natives. This is not 100% throughout all places but like to err on side of caution. Two of our relatives that live in Maryland plan to move back south day their retirement kicks in.

When still young and before GA allowed carry in bars was leaving to see a swarm of cops in parking lot due to a call about someone breaking into cars. Since riding with designated driver in their vehicle only had my personal carry which was a Smith M60 with clip-it grip so could carry in the pants by just clipping grip to waistband. Our vehicle was one hit and we approached cops who had two men handcuffed and pile of stuff tagging and one was holding my Smith, had just unloaded, spun the cylinder, slammed it shut and was looking at the Glaser Safety Slugs like alien technology. Said our vehicle was broken in to as well and that was my gun. They took a report and said had to put serial number on report and would be returned after trial. Drove next day and filed an amended report with exact serial number and asked how long before the Smith would be returned. Was told that there was no mention in reports of a gun being recovered of any type. ATL cop stole my little Smith. Reported it stolen and circumstances locally and to this day never been recovered.

I and many others I know are very distrustful of certain states and even a lot of our own local municipalities. Have known cops with large gun collections supplimental by firearms taken from people that were "cutting a break" such as probation violations or concealed without license and confiscated the gun(s) and let per go with stiff verbal warning and took gun(s) home. This is a very small percentage but enough to cause many to not only be cautious and drive around some little towns and avoid states have read or heard about horror stories of confiscation. Virginia is one where if speeding will likely get stopped and if have a gun it might not come home with you. Another reason I have three dash cams in my vehicle. Losing a trunk load of machine guns on way to a shoot would suck. For most part GA, SC, NC, TN, AL, MS and KY are good to go just following state law and not driving too fast.

I stopped doing the Gun Shows last May. Used to do Ft.Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Miami.That was doing 48 shows a year. Starting doing the shows in 1998 and after 11 years of doing all three I stopped doing two of the shows and only did Ft.Lauderdale for the last 7 years as the other two went to sht. Easier to do the internet than doing the shows anymore.Had 5 tables at a cost of 95.00 to 115.00 a table and when you only had 15 hours total for both days, It got old quick. Used to sell Colt, HK, Sig and Fal stuff, Plus magazines and ammo. Manatee is about 3 1/2 hours from my house. Might go to the creek towards the end of the year, But will have to see if the house sells first and where we'll windup at with the new house.

Some quotes have seen posted of late:

Others may be as good, but Colt makes their parts to the Current Military Standard found in the weapon's Technical Data Package - since they wrote it over the last forty (40) years and 8 Million ARs and Uncle Sam requires it of all Vendors making that part or item.
Little things like correct alloy, exact tempering/hardness, triple hard coat anodized vs. double (or even single!), exact dimensions, etc, are pretty much a given on Colt parts. Other parts may look ok, but you just don't know to what standard they are made.

Here are the things the Colt has that the Windham doesn't...it's up to you to decide if you're willing to pay for them. I'd recommend you do, though, for what it's worth:

1) Manufactured by the owner of the Technical Data Package and therefore the proper specs and dimensions for all components.
2) 1:7 twist, chrome-lined, High Pressure Tested and Magnetic Particle inspected CMV4150 barrel.
3) High Pressure Tested and Magnetic Particle inspected Carpenter 158 bolt
4) Properly-staked gas key on the bolt carrier
5) Properly-staked castle nut

These are representative of dozens of similar quotes. Basically most folk who are hard core AR affianados have a Colt put back for end of the world scenarios.

For most of us the TDP doesn't matter as the TDP is valid ONLY FOR the M4, M4A1,M16A3 and M16A4. The TDP is valid only for select fire weapons that allow three round burst or full automatic fire.
Here's an interesting on mil-spec and mil-std: http://www.defensereview.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/Combat_Tactics_The_Truth_about_MilSpec_by_David_Cr ane_Summer_2008.pdf

I bought one of the complete colt lowers the day after Christmas I think. They were on sale for $179, and of course I couldn't pass that up.

The one that I got was marked M4 carbine, but didn't have the typical LE prefix on the serial number.

From arfcom: https://www.ar15.com/forums/industry/End-of-the-LE-serial-number-prefix-/29-286015/

--------------
"...The “CR” prefix is what is currently used on all our LE products. There may be some LE prefix lowers in the marketplace still but all new lowers on all LE rifles are CR prefix. The only difference between an LE prefix lower and a CR prefix lower is the serial number range..."

"...Also asked about the new CR prefix serial numbers. They said it was a new standardization of serial numbers they were doing. The only one that is different is the A4 model that starts was a CAR..."

Seems some on this site equated the LE serial number prefix with a law enforcement model. It ain't. It's JAFAR / 6920.
If your lower is not rolled marked "LAW ENFORCEMENT" it is not now, never has been, and never will be a "LAW ENFORCEMENT" model.

ETA: And a LE roll marked 6920 lower is just another 6920 lower with a "LAW ENFORCEMENT" roll mark on it brought about by the ban years and later Colt marketing.

Honestly if not a total Colt built rifle in Colt factory screwing up a home brew project is a home brew rifle no matter the roll mark on the receiver. Of course will be people down the road that w I'll see the pony on the lower and make ssumptions so will still likely add value to a build. Colt selling off parts is a bad sign for long term though good for us hoarders short term. I interpret it as they have lost a lot of contracts to FN, Smith and others causing them to have to surplus parts to keep,cash flow up. Bad sign for pony lovers longterm.

Think Colt should get serious with retail guns again. A release of properly made Pythons and Diamondbacks to go with Cobras, maybe a limited edition run of Anaconda's would not devalue originals as serial numbers will date guns but generate revenue, allow a new generation to become pony lovers if they make them from steel and keep fit/finish level top notch.

Hate to see us loose them and losing dot gov and dot mil contracts could bode the end or worse, a sell off to someone who will turn out total crap with Colt branding like is happening with others then they file bankruptcy and sell off all the had assets dismantling the company forever.

More Colt! My recent build. Mk18 Mod 0. Colt upper with Colt 6920 Barrel cut to 10.3”. Had to go with a Brownells A1 lower for clone correctness.

Most I have seen have standard carbine stock. SEAL team issues are more often with the battery compartment high check rest stock and usually have cans plus night vision attachments. Assume that may be a reason for on board batteries. The Mk 18 has so many different configurations in its SOPMOD it's almost a zillion accessories that if chop a barrel or buy a shorty upper with quad rail handguards dropped in the delta ring have a Mk 18. Since I am not a forward vertical grip user will stick with my old school M177 Moderator carry handle upper and let it rip roar. Did drop a binary trigger in my moderator which having a third position" close to happy" switch makes it much more lively.

I hate doing a second stamp to SBR a rifle when first thing will do is stick a can on it to keep blast out of my face which can pin and call the darn thing a rifle without second stamp. Also after using flash cans if did build an unsuppressed SBR would put Noveske Flaming Pig or KAK flash can on it as they are 10 times the technology of a bird cage. Some things I just have a low desire to clone them when the $200 SBR stamp would buy another Form 1 suppressor stamp. Have come up with an easy to build Form 1 can that actually makes sense to pin them to short barrels and bring to 16" rifle length.

The can waiting for transfer of 458 SOCOM build is huge 10" commercial can paid $200 for as owners wife saw two months credit card statements, a $200 check to BATFE so he sold all the major parts and discovered selling even an unused specialty suppressor difficult so decided if able to get his tax stamp money back wife would be happy so paid $200 to BATFE and soon as stamp comes back will give him $200 and be into can less than street price. With the huge can on an 8" barrel lobbing subs should be almost mechanical sound of moving parts all thats heard. Have a Form 1 can on a Beretta Minx that shooting in shop or basement all hear is bullet slapping target and brass landing on concrete, actual movie quiet with right can on subsonic bullet lobber.

First few Mk 18 clones I saw thought were someone's idea of a cheapie SBR using drop in quad rails instead of floating barrel. While not a proper Mk 18 mod 0 clone I do like the Daniel Defense M18 model as their implementation of it is stunningly nice with their free float forearm system which they claim have sold over 15,000 units to USSOCOM for fielding most I see are drop in quad rails. I have seen the Daniel Defense rail in the Mk 18 mod 3 SOPMOD so with four generations and multiple configurations in each almost any short barrel M4 build would about fall in the Mk 18 family.
