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.

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.

FINELY , got to test fire my 2017 LE6940 last tuesday .

Talk about an accurate 16'' barrel , Wow A+ keeper . Even better than any of my 6921 M4's & Socom barrel's .

POF trigger make's it very smooth , Can't wait to find a 2-600yd. playground to really put the Matech rear site it to the test .

DSG contract FDE magazine , ran great right out of the package also . Had to get it to match with the DD short FDE Front Grip .

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.









As I said, I'm not a fan of the AR but I must admit to a certain amount of pride in owning a US made rifle.
