    Pistol and Revolver Forum

  4. Colt teetering on brink of bankruptcy

    Military Weapons Forum
    The only thing I have to say is GOOD. Colt has ignored the civilian market for way too long. They have refused to provide customers with a diversified product. Took too long releasing the civilian version of the M16 A4. Consumers have to jump through hoops to buy a colt product. As in...

  11. LE6920 and Steel Cased? Should I sell?

    Military Weapons Forum
    Ive got a Colt LE6920 and not even sure if it takes steel well or not. I've got plenty of high quality ammo and I kinda don't want to try it out and save the embarrassment at the range if any of the casings get stuck. 1. Do Colts like Steel? 2. Should I sell em?
