Although we covered Colt’s announcement over a week ago. It seems that only in the last couple of days  the full “impact” was felt around the social media and, of course, the boys and girls of Gun Control. But as I always warn, read the original document before you get your undies all in torsion. Why? Because in some instances like Gun Control’s (and unfortunately some gun owners) favorite Fake Media Outlet, The Trace, had no qualms being “obfuscative” about the truth:

But I must congratulate one particularly virulent Gun Controller who actually delivered the truth in her Twitter feed: Alyssa Milano.

But wait, there is more (bad news)! Buddy Dan Roberts was kind enough to compile a list of AR-15 manufacturers still out there. They rank from mass producers to customs shops and just to save you time, I’ll tell you that there are 279 of them.

And to think that when Clinton signed int law the Assault Weapons Ban, I recall there were only 4 of them, Colts being one.

Unintended Consequences, y’all.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

15 thoughts on “The Antis celebrating Colt not selling to Civilian Market as show of their might. (Stop giggling)”
  1. Looking at my post on good deals, you can currently build an AR-15 for less than $300. A Colt of comparable quality is around $1,000.
    If you wanted to build a high quality one, you can do so for around $1,500, and Colt doesn’t even make one of comparable quality.
    They are right, the AR-15 market is very competitive and has small margins. Colt just can’t keep up.

  2. Didn’t see Bear Creek Arsenal. Although they only make uppers I think. I have a spare lower I’m thinking of turning into a 7.62×39 build. But doing it the way I want plus a few magazines would be another $600-$700 I do not have. And then there is the question of reliability.

  3. Add another to the list:

    Ground Zero Precision/ Black Dirt Rifle Works Of Sherman, Texas.

    Superior firearms excellent rifles.

  4. Foxtrot Mike – pistol caliber ARs

    And any number of manufacturers who make other types of semiauto rifles. Such as, for instance, K&M Arms – they make bullpups that use AR magazines, and fairly standard (if somewhat relocated) AR controls and a number of interchangeable internals such as extractors. (Very nice bullpups with good stock triggers, for that matter.)

    1. (for some reason I couldn’t edit my comment, although I was apparently “in time”)

      I have to ask, however, how many of those companies on the list are active. Loki, for instance, was making a nice patrol rifle back in 2011, but I can’t find any current company under that name offering rifles for sale. (Granted my DuckDuckGoFu isn’t the best.) The market over the past several years may have taken a number of the smaller ones out as well.

  5. Many, including I, have said this is the golden age of ARs.

    Not just complete firearms, but every part and accoutrement available.Six packs of lowers for $210.00. parts that greatly exceed previous quality for much lower prices. NOW IS THE TIME.

  6. The problem I run into these days, now that I usually assemble my own rather than buy a complete rifle, is where to store them where Mrs. B won’t notice a new one appearing.

    Other than that, however, the issue I find is of small parts. It sucks to be about done with a build, and find you’re missing the plunger and spring for the bolt catch. Apart from the time delay, the shipping often exceeds the cost of the part.

    Granted, of course, this is definitely more of an annoyance than a problem, as such.

  7. When are ignorant people going to realize it’s mental instability behind the gun. That’s what we continue to ignore. Reagan closed hundreds of mental institutions during his administration. Now we give them drugs and put them in jail instead of trying to help them. I will admit better background checks should have happened years ago

  8. Highly distributed manufacturing and sales outlets are in our best interest. I want to see all kinds of small and medium players in every sector of our industry.
