It's hard to imagine one person will ever have the same impact on technology as Samuel Colt, let alone firearms. (Maybe the guy who invents a practical laser gun will count, but there's no way it won't actually be a team of white coats working in a bunker somewhere that comes up with that.)
In 1982 when Glock hit the streets it was thrown to the forefront of the gun control battle by having a polymer frame. The anti-gun leftist claimed a Glock would slip past airport metal detectors. The anti-gun media did one thing, they gave Glock all the free advertising the company could...
Hi, how's that for a troublemaker post title? :)
I own a few different 1911s, Springfield Armory, Para Ordnance, and Colt. No matter how much I shoot and love my non Colt 1911s, I have a special place in my heart for the Colt MKIV Series 80 and Gold Cup Series 70.
How about posting info about...
I'm going to buy a rifle off a buddy of mine next week. He has a Colt Le6920, a Smith and Wesson,and a Bushmaster. All are carbines with 16" barrels. He wants a grand for the Colt and a hundred or so less for the others. The frontrunner for me is the Colt. Is it that much better than the...
I would like some suggestions on what is the best AR-15 in the sub-$1,000 price range.
Some of the rifles I have looked at are:
Chamber must be 5.56mm
Flat top would be nice
16 inch barrel
Lifetime warranty would be nice
Rifle is going to be...
Hello group, yesterday i became the proud owner of my first AR.
It's a Colt Sporter Match Hbar Ser #MH036xxx. I called Colt today
and asked date of manufacture. They told me it was pre ban built
in 1993. Now the good news, it has never been fired, except by Colt.
The dealer said he did not think...
Looking through the April 2011 issue of Shooting Illustrated, and on the review of new guns, they have listed a Colt SP901 in 7.62 Nato. The interesting thing about it is, it can also accept uppers of 5.56! Colt has come out with some sort of adapter, that they are hush-hush about at the...
I hope this in the right spot. I have an old colt model 1877 "Lighting" that was made in 1880. it was my granddad's, and was in piece's when I got it. It had been re-nickeled and a lot of that has flaked off. I finally got it back together and working recently. Then I ordered the...
AR-15 HBar - I owned one 20 years ago... sold it :(
I am looking at the new Colt AR-15 HBar 6700C model now.
How do these NEW guns differ from what I hear people speak of the "pre-ban" AR-15's??
There are so many choices that it is hard to make a decision.
I don't think that I want a fixed front sight since I plan to mount an optic (eventually an ACOG) and don't want to see the front sight post through the optic. I would also like to mount a front vertical grip and maybe a light...
I'm probably going to sell my pre-ban Colt AR15 6700 competition HBAR and get a smaller Bushmaster 16 incher. What is the difference in A2 and A3 sights plus is the heavier barrel more accurate than the funky looking M4 barrel? I'm not a competition shooter, will be using it for close shots on...

I have a Colt 22 (Cadet). I got it from my grandfather, and for some reason he removed the rear sight. Is there any way that I can track down a factory replacement? Or are there any other sights that can be used?
A quick picture I took before posting with a close up look at the rear sight...
