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.

I only have the one colt.

The one they call the Competition (CCR colt competition rifle).

Thankfully, I got mine before they started engraving that gawdy design on the right magwell.

I'm not a big fan of post A1 colt much. I just got a near mint sp1 from a guy in Lexington.. Early 80's vintage A1 clone sans the fwd assist. Am glad I live in a state without the bullet button and no evil bayo lug or flash hider insanity.

John , That's a killer trigger guard. Where did you get that ?. I'd get one or two for me and the son for our "go to rifles".

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.



















How many in here can adjust the coils sitting on passenger side dash? One per cylinder and if you can fix these you can build an AR 15.



Digging a hole may be easier with a shovel than this if can't keep it running.

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 doesnít involve a computer.

Iím 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 canít find people who are qualify to do the work. Of those people who are willing to do the work, most canít 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.

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.



















How many in here can adjust the coils sitting on passenger side dash? One per cylinder and if you can fix these you can build an AR 15.



Digging a hole may be easier with a shovel than this if can't keep it running.

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.

There are certainly other great ARs out there now. My favorite lineup is BCM. And I built a couple from scratch. But everybody ought to have at least one 6920, because...hell, I don't know, just because I guess. They aren't the prettiest things in the world, but they do work well.

Some folks are just fans of the meat pony. I have a few older Colt Arm's that I do enjoy, but I find their newer stuff. Still buying the pony is always a safe bet.

I'm down with 20" barrels and good buttstocks...though am not partial to the A2 buttplate nor all the dang rails. Kinda keep it retro and simple for me.

If it were 1/12 bore I'd wager you yes. I was not fond of the A2's when they took away my A1.

If doesn't have to be LWRC but just good quality quad rail forearms for carbine length gas rifle I probably have a few and would let go of them cheaper than the fleabay linked price. Sure I have two and might have four or five if dig deep enough.

Perfect, Fly Version 2.0 likes to sell and I like to hoard but will help a Files member when I can.

Colts

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.
